Happy Birthday

Hi there,

we are starting a new Challenge over on the Elizabeth Craft Designs Blog and this time it is all about the Blackboard Number and Letters:

  • cut out a stitched panel from watercolor paper using one of the Elizabeth Craft Designs Stitched Rectangles
  • create a gradient background using Schmincke Horadam watercolors
  • cut out the Elizabeth Craft Designs Blackboard Numbers from that panel and set it aside
  • cut out a matching panel and cover it with Elizabeth Craft Designs 5'' x 12 '' clear double-sided adhesive
  • remove the release paper an cover the whole panel with Elizabeth Craft Designs Ice Teal Microfine Glitter
  • glue the watercolor panel on top of the glitter panel
  • add a strip of patterned paper and a strip of Elizabeth Craft Designs Soft Finish Cardstock Rich Black to the panel
  • stamp the three smaller gift from the Elizabeth Craft Designs Gift Wrapped set with My Favorite Things Extreme Black and color the images with Delta, Touch Twin Brush and Copic Markers
  • adhere them on top of the strip using some double-sided foam adhesive for extra dimension

The question this month will be:
What Elizabeth Craft Designs die or stamp set would you use together with the Blackboard Alphabet or Blackboard Numbers die sets?

I hope you got inspired.

Enjoy Watermelon

Hi there,

I created this watercolor watermelon card for Elizabeth Craft Designs:

  • paint a watermelon using Twinkling H20 Watercolors - add white seeds and highlights with a white gel pen
  • cut the sentiment twice from black cardstock with the help of the Elizabeth Craft Designs Blackboard Alphabet - add highlights with a white gel pen as well
  • add a strip of black and white patterned paper to the left side of the panel before adhering it to a white cardbase

I hope you got inspired to draw some vibrant summer fruit and creating custom sentiments.
