Our guest blogger this week is Gerrina Poncin who lives in the Netherlands. She has designed three beautiful cards for us so please enjoy.
I started by stamping the flower from Fantasy Meadow onto white paper with Versafine Sepia, then sponged it all with Shaded Lilac distress ink and coloured it with distress inks and a water brush. I glued it on a brown piece of cardstock and put some pearls on it. Then I made the background by sponging through two stencils from Crafter's Workshop with Picked Raspberry and Peacock Feathers distress ink, then sponged the whole thing with Antique Linen. Next I stamped the text from Artistic Affirmations with Versafine Sepia and put some clear embossing powder on it that I heat set with the heat tool. Last I stamped, with the same Sepia ink, just the flowers from the flower stamp I had used on the white piece.
I stamped the flowers from Spring Foliage and the quote from Artistic Affirmations with Versafine Onyx Black. Then sponged with Salty Ocean, Wild Honey, Bundled Sage and Gathered Twigs distress inks. I colored the flowers with a water brush using Salty Ocean and Dusty Concord and used Scatterd Straw on the the twigs. With the empty cardboard tube from a kitchen paper towel roll and Versamark I stamped circles and heat set them with clear embossing powder. The other circles are with the same tube and Spiced Marmalade distress ink.
On this card I stamped the text from Artistic Affirmations and flowers from Fantasy Meadow with Versafine Black Onyx. Then took the round blending tool and used that as a stamp for the coloured circles with Salty Ocean, Squeezed Lemonade, Spiced Marmalade, Shabby Shutters and Barn Door distress inks. The same colours and some water were used with the water brush to make the splatters.
Thank you so much for these colourful cards Gerrina, they really reflect a bright summer day. I hope you can leave a comment to show your appreciation and for more creative inspiration please visit Gerrina's blog, Gerrina's Creatieve Wereld
