Happy Sunday, Marnie here!  Today I am sharing water colored card using one of my favorite Stencils this season the Hero Arts Message Wreath SA006 Christmas.   First I water colored the background with Red Watercolor Paint onto watercolor paper.   Once this was dry I added the Wreath with White Embossing Paste then I water colored it with Green Watercolor Paint.  Once everything was dry the NOEL in Gold Embossing Paste went down.  At this point the Red Pearls were added as well as the ribbon.  Everything was layered onto an Eggshell Card Blank.   I hope you like it.  Thank you for stopping by today!

Smile Lillies

a2zOct1                   a2zOct1a

Happy Columbus Day, Marnie here!  Today I am sharing a pretty card using an amazing Hero Arts Antique Gratitude CL780.  The focal point flower in this set is Amazing Lilies so I colored them like Tiger Lillies with watercolor pencils.  The background is also watercolored. The piece is cut into an oval and layered onto Orange Cardstock. The flower has gold Wink of Stella centers and stamens which are hard to pick up in the photograph.  The greeting “SMILE” comes from  Hero Arts A Little CL758.  It’s stamped in black and then glossed up with Glaze Pen.  I created a background with a Hero Arts Stencil  and some Gold Embossing Paste on Kraft Layering Paper. There are a couple of little gold rhinestones for more shine at the bottom.  The entire piece was popped up onto a Kraft Card.   I hope you like it.  Thank you for stopping by today!

To The Moon – Celestial Digital File

haDigiCelestial

Good Morning Marnie here.  I’ve been playing with the Hero Arts Digital Cut Files available in the A2Z Scrapbooking Online Store.  They are so much fun don’t you just love what how many different things you can create with them.  My Silhouette is one of my favorite tools and Hero Arts and A2Z Scrapbooking have just combined two of my favorite things!  Who could ask for more?

Today I have used the Celestial Digital Cut File and created a background with the Starry Background in black, I added glitter to all of the stars after the background was glued down.  Then Cut out the moon and star in yellows.  I layered everything onto a turquoise card.  The “To The Moon And Back” was written and cut with a font on my PC “Branboll NY”.  To top it off there is a little yellow gingham ribbon.  I love how it all turned out.  I hope you like it.  You can see all of the supplies I’ve used below.  For a 15% discount use the code Marnie15.

You Are So Kind – Impressionist Watercolor

a2zaug12Good Morning, Marnie here.  Today I am sharing a watercolor card.  I love when you use a solid image and just watercolor the openings in the images.  Today I did it a little different I overinked my Versamark pad and inked my image right away creating a splotchy affect when stamping and embossing with clear embossing powder.  I thought I wouldn’t love this one but out of the 3 I stamped after inking my pad this is the one I loved it is less perfect than the others creating that artistic affect.   Once the image is heat embossed just add watercolor or dye ink watered down to the open areas.  I recommend doing the background first then adding color to the flowers, stems and leaves.  This will allow for cleanup in the actual images with more water.  Make the project is completely dry before assembling your project.  The paper the image and greeting are on are Watercolor paper.  I love the added little button and twine.  For links to the products used in this project check the Inlinkz below.  Or head on over to the A2Z Scrapbooking Store and take 15% off using the code marnie15. Have a wonderful day.
