Lift Me Up Hot Air Balloon Card

Lift Me Up Hot Air Balloon Card

 Hello Friends,

I love Hot Air Balloons.  They remind me of lazy days and adventure.  That's why I love the happy blend of images and sentiments that make the Lift Me Up stamp set the perfect pick-me-up kind of stamp set.

Lift Me Up

 For a textured billowy look, I embossed a my background with the Hexagons Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and sponged Pool Party and Perfect Plum across the textured background.  Then I stamped the Lift your spirits sentiment and cut it with a Stitched Shapes Oval Die.

Penned & Painted and the Color Wash Technique

Penned & Painted Stampin' Up!

 Hello Friends,

Do you enjoy learning new stamping techniques?  It's fun step outside the box and try new thing.  The Penned & Painted stamp set by Stampin' Up! has some pretty outline stamps that look fabulous using the Color Wash Technique.  

Color Wash Technique

Color Wash Technique

The trick to coloring on a dark card stock is a technique called Color Washing.  First, stamp and heat emboss your images.  This gives you a nice outline.  Next, paint on a layer of Whisper White Ink inside each outline.  After the White Ink is dry, color your flowers with either an aqua painter or a clear Wink of Stella Brush.  See the video below to see how to watercolor with the Wink of Stella Brush.

Color Wash Technique

 The flowers take on a translucent look using this technique.   And painting with the Wink of Stella Brush gives the flower a shimmery finish as well.  The flowers are gorgeous and they look even better in real life.
