Throwback Thursday - Jungle, Flowers and Mermaids

Hi there,

this is my third Throwback Thursday Post and my three projects were inspired by this wonderful card by Craftyfield which was published on the STAMPlorations Blog in January. I just love the watercolor effect over the stenciled flowers.

My first project is a jungle scene:

  • apply Grit Paste through the ARTplorations Leaf Prints 3 stencil onto a piece of watercolor paper - let it dry thoroughly
  • sprinkle some Color Burst Lime Green onto the panel and mist it water
  • wrap a strand of natural twine around the panel
  • stamp one of the adorable little monkeys from the STAMPlorations Chikoo goes Bananas set with Lawn Fawn Crunchy Leaf and color it with Delta, Touch Twin Brush and Copic Markers - add extra shading with Faber-Castell Polychromos pencils and add highlights with a white gel pen
  • cut out the CUTplorations Hang in there twice from Neenah Desert Storm kraft cardstock, layer them on top of each other and glue the sentiment onto the panel
  • adhere the panel to a cardbase

My second project is this flowery tag:

  • apply Embossing Paste through the ARTplorations Bloom Succulently stencil onto a CUTplorations Manila Tag cut from watercolor paper - let this layer dry thoroughly
  • sprinkle the lower part of the tag with Brusho Sea Green and the upper part with Brusho Violet and mist it with water
  • dye a piece of torn seam binding with that same two colors and thread it through the hole of the tag
  • add the sentiment from the STAMPlorations Shine Bright sticker set

My third project is this mermaid card:

  • apply Grit Paste through the ARTplorations Scaly stencil onto a piece of watercolor paper - let this dry thoroughly
  • sprinkle the upper part of the panel with Nuvo Shimmer Powder Cherry Bomb and the lower part with Nuvo Shimmer Powder Atlantis Burst
  • adhere the sentiment from the STAMPlorations Inspirational #1 sticker set onto a strip of paper colored with Prima Marketing Wax Sweet Rose - add a black layer underneath that sentiment strip
  • adhere the panel to a black cardbase

I hope you got inspired.
