Is it already Wednesday?
We’re onto the final day of the Lil’ Inker Designs new release blog hop and I have a lot to share, so let’s get to it. The hop starts at the Lil’ Inker Designs shop blog, where you’ll find gorgeous projects, product information, and all of the dirty details on the blog hop and its prizes. If you’re following along (and leaving comments for a chance to win Lil’ Inker gift certificates) then your last stop was Jen Carter’s blog.
And now you’re here and ready to see some cute stuff made with our new release.
I had a little help from my kids for today’s first project. I used the new Mini Canvas die to cut at least dozen canvases from white card stock and bristol paper, then let my kids go to town with washable markers. We misted our favorite canvases with a lot of water to make the colors bleed. Once they were dry, I helped them add details like stickers.
For my own canvas, I used real watercolors and the incredible Paint Your Canvas stamps to emboss a sentiment. I’m mixing it up a bit with copper embossing powder. It makes the blue and turquoise seem even brighter.
Grimlock likes watercolors.
[ ^^^ That might be the most pink I’ve had on my blog in years. Trying to thwart modern toy marketing by giving her a rainbow of colors isn’t working out so well because she just wants all things pink and sparkly.]
I couldn’t leave the sentiments from Paint Your Canvas alone. They’re just begging to be used on cards, especially ones that use my watercolor experiments.
To make this card, I mounted a dark, shimmering galaxy inspired watercolor piece to a black card base and topped it with a triangle trimmed from the Triangle Treat Holder die cut. I stamped the triangle with the sentiment, spritzed it with Perfect Pearls mist, and mounted it over the card base so that the hole would be trimmed off.
Thank you so much for stopping by! Please head over to Maureen’s blog for even more inspiration.
