It's bloggers challenge and I am a little late this week. Lisa Somerville, our group moderator, gave us the challenge to create Graduation Cards. It just so happened I needed cards for two very special gals..who have very different personalities.. Grab a coffee and take a tour HERE to view what other challenge players created.
Both cards were created using up snippits of backgrounds and pieces stamped waiting to be thrown together into a creation.
The first card is for my glamour gal...The background was created using a Tehnique Junkies Method from Ann Clarke called Alcohol Ink float..this is a very addictive technique using Ranger Alcohol Inks. I Distressed the Water Color paper with Tim Holtz Distress Inks.
The Flower is from Innovative Stamp Creations and is stamped on Vellum and colored on the backside of the Vellum.
I hand-stitched the ribbon...(bad sewer I am) and gathered the ribbon for a different look..I do not know the name of the company that makes the image the 'Glamour Girl' is from. If any of my readers recognize this stamp, can you e-mail me...I would really appreciate this info, as I have two large sheets of these stamps.
The Bling Crystals are from Heidi Swapp: Martha's Borders.
The second card is for my rebel gal...image was downloaded from Vintage Clipart. I used Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist, and Tim Holtz Distress Inks....Techniques for the Background are, again, from Technique Junkies, Glimmer Mist Water Color Art and Cuttlebug Highlights using Sizzix Texture Plates. The Flower Stamp is from Clearly Inspired Paper Inspriations (Perfect Paisley - SCS113). I love their stamps, they stamp wonderfully. The other stamps are from Stampin Up: Great Grads.
