This month we have almost 70 Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using this month’s Stamp of the Month and other great CTMH products on their blogs. Grab your favorite beverage, sit back and relax as you join on for the hop! It’s simple to do – just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one. Here we go…
I was inspired by Jeanette Lynton’s Color Me Monday post titled Make the Outdoors Great. I felt the Sunflower color would be perfect for the flowers, the Indian Corn Blue would capture the sky, and the Desert Sand and Olive the ground.
This card is 6″ x 6″ and is my own design. Hard to tell with the photo that there’s Indian Corn Blue ink sponged onto the background behind the floating seeds.
This card is 5.5″ x 4.25″ and is my own design. For this one, I used colored pencils to add more depth and definition to the flower petals.
As I was playing with the stamps, I wanted to create an outdoor scene. This last card is 7″ x 5″. I will put together a tutorial for how I did this. It’s a combination of embossing with Clear Embosssing Powder and sponging on color with the Round Sponge.
