Pretty Pink Posh August Release Blog Hop - Day 1



Welcome to Day 1 of the Pretty Pink Posh August release Blog Hop! Details are below!


I have two very simple but fun cards today. The first one uses the new Spider Web stencil and white ink to create a spooky background. Rather than centering the stencil on the black panel, I put the centre in each corner, to create 4 spider webs.

Then I used the BOO dies to cut out the letters from white cardstock and I blended Melon Ice ink from the bottom, fading to white at the top. I stamped a couple of the spiders and die cut the 3rd one so that he could spin and slide along the hole in the middle 'o'. To give these guys some 'body', I used 3 of the largest Glossy Black Jewels for some dimension and shine.





The next card is a pop-art take using the new Sunflower set, along with a partial sentiment from Fall Signs.

I masked off 4 squares and stamped the smallest sunflower in the centre of each. Then I used the matching die to create a mask from a full-back sticky note before blending ink into each square. I chose matching Copic markers for the flower centres and then added matching jewels for sparkle.

I did some very minimal colouring of the 'background' petals on the sunflower, with a pale gray Copic marker.

These are so cute. I love the spider web in all 4 corners and that the middle spider moves, so cool. And pop art is always a great design.
