1 Lily Stamp, 2 Cards,2 Techniques

Welcome to my studio.  I received some new stamps from Gina K that I purchased with a prize GC from Modsquad Challenge and was anxious to use.    I did the bottom card first by stamping the Lily stamp from Thank You Friend set with Versamark on White CS and then embossed with White EP.  I water colored the image with Distress Oxide inks using a water brush.  I think inks used were Fossilized Amber, Wild Honey, Peeled Paint, and Peacock Feathers.   Added some highlights with colored pencils. Finished with sentiment from the same set.  Inked the edge of the panel with Peeled Paint pad and adhered to a Blue card base.  I have seen several water colors done with heat embossed images and had to give it a try.

The top card was made with the same Lily stamp but I stamped this one with Memento Toffee Crunch ink and colored with Copics.  Also added some touches with Colored Pencils.  Trimmed the image and placed on a mat of Grass Green CS. Stamped a sentiment from Gina K set Inspiring Poppies, cut with die and placed on a green mat.   For the card base, I used Grass Green and made the background with White CS stamped with Gina K background stamp Petite Flourish with Memento Bamboo Leaves. I assembled the card popping up the image with foam tape and also popped up the sentiment on top of the image.

I was inspired to create these cards by the Lilies in my Garden:
