Inspirational Week Day 2 - Stampendous

I'm back today with Day 2 of Inspiration Week with Stampendous.
 All week over at the Stampendous Blog you can see all the different designs from this beautiful line.  

With this A2 card I wanted to create a clean and simple look.  I stamped and embossed with detailed white, R190 Baroque Cross on watercolor paper.  Using distress markers randomly color the background, then spritz with water.  Wipe the embossed areas with a tissue and let dry.  I actually used my heat tool to hurry up the drying process.  But be careful as you can mess up your embossing by doing this.

Stamp H302 Courage Quote was used with matching layers of card stock and dew drops for accents.


Inspirational Week - Stampendous

Hello,  This week Stampendous Design Team is sharing a little "Inspirational" inspiration.  All week over at the Stampendous Blog you can see all the different designs from this beautiful line.  

Here I created a dimensional framed piece using R189 Winged Cross.  

This piece was "color washed" with Copic Markers and 70% Alcohol.  The background was textured using a piece of burlap with 99% Alcohol.  To add dimension I color washed two images then cut out the cross and wings.  This set was then bent, shaped and attached to the bottom layer with foam pop up squares.  To help bring out the dimension shadows were added with grays.

Here is the Color Palette used :)
