Silhouettes and Sunsets

Happy August!   I will be getting much more active on my blog now – so very much is going on.  Got back from Junkie Fest 2018 – one of the most amazing weekends EVER!   We had so much fun and I will be blogging about that early next week.  So many wonderful people were involved.  I will also be blog hopping as a member of AnthonysPaperCraft Design Team!   I love Anthony’s stamps, and Anthony.  He is just such a great, caring person.  I will be working at his booth at Stampaway in Cincinnati the weekend of August 10-11.  Stop by and see us.  I will also be doing a blog hop with Beth Duff of Duffsdesign this month.  She is amazing also – I met her at Junkie Fest and she has some very fun stamps and products.

Meanwhile —   sometimes I do things a little bit backwards (as those of you who know me personally understand).  Yesterday I was playing with some watercoloring using my Ken Oliver Crafts Liquid Metals drops.  After taping down the edges of my watercolor paper, I applied a layer of water.  Then I put down some drops of various colors of the metals and brushed it up and down with a 1/2 inch brush.  It makes some amazing backgrounds, they shimmer so much.

Today I thought about what to do with them, and went with two stamp sets that I love using together.  AnthonysPaperCrafts Natures Silhouettes  and Avery Elle Sentimental Too.  The Silhouettes are beautiful, with 3 in the stamp set, and I love to use them with colorful backgrounds.   The Sentimental Too set has 5 bold scripty words to use with many small word pieces in the set to cover just about any sentiment needed.  I stamped in Versafine Clair Nocturne and embossed with clear powder.    I did emboss the You are amazing swoop with a glittery black I picked up somewhere.

Although I messed up the first time I embossed the bluish sky one – all is good as I just cut it off and made a 4 1/4  x 4 1/4  square card.  If you cut off 1/2 inch from each side of a standard A1 envelope and seal the edges, you get a nice squarish envelope to match.

I hope you enjoy these cards as much as I did making them.    See you shortly —

Mary Kay
