Hi everyone! It's Juliana and I'm so happy to be sharing with you today as a guest on the Sunny Studio Stamps blog.
For my Have A Sunshiny Day card, I used the Tropical Paradise, Island Getaway and Sunny Sentiments stamps. I love how all of these stamps from different sets coordinate so well together. I stamped each image using archival ink onto watercolor paper, colored them with Zig Clean Color Real Brush pens and then fussy cut each image. To create the background I made a mask with the waves stamps. I then applied Distress Ink with a sponger applicator in various shades of blue for the sky and brown for the sand. The final touch to background was a bit of water splatter and then a splatter of ink to give it some added interest.
The tropical theme continued with my next card - Cheers To You. For this card, I used the Tropical Paradise stamp set. I created masks of each image using a Post-it note and then created a festive little scene with the flowers and drinks. I stamped the images onto watercolor paper with archival ink and then colored it in using Zig Clean Color Real Brush pens.
To create my One In A Melon card, I used the new Fresh and Fruity stamp set. I stamped the watermelons and the sentiment with black pigment ink onto watercolor paper, sprinkled them with clear embossing powder and then heat set the powder. I love how it gave the watermelons and the sentiment a bit of wet and juicy look! To color in the images, I used Zig Clean Color Real Brush pens.
For the Thanks A Bunch card, I used the Fresh and Fruity set along with the pineapple from the Tropical Paradise set. I created masks for each of the images and then created a fruity scene by stamping them onto watercolor paper using a Distress Ink Pad in Pumice Stone. I then colored in each image using Zig Clean Color Real Brush pen.
Thanks so much for stopping by today and I invite you to check out my blog, 17turtles, for one more card I created using the Fresh and Fruity Stamp Set and a fun watercolor bleaching technique.
