I created this design card for a Style Challenge - Colors: Red, Orange, Kraft / Element: Apples when I was on the Ai DT. My DT duty ended, but Ai is still near and dear to my heart. I stamped the Picket Fence (Sku#G1215) in white craft ink onto craft cardstock, sprinkled with emboss powder and heat set.
Next I colored with markers. For the very small section, I lightly dabbed color in. The alcohol markers blend nicely on the craft cardstock. For areas where I colored over the image, I used the 0 blender to remove the color. NOTE: I usually use clear embossing powder with my alcohol markers. I thought white would be ok, since it's almost clear. :o) I do not use my markers with color or metallic embossing powders.
I cut my circle before stamping Flying Ducks (Sku#I3256). The sentiment if from the Lakehouse TF (Sku#4204) set. I cut around the sentiment with my paper trimmer. I added the embossed line by setting in my paper trimmer and using an embossing tool in the little track to create a straight embossed line.
On the inside of the card, I added Apples (Sku#AA3290) in a Wooden Barrel (Sku#F1730). I stamped the barrel first, sprinkled with embossing powder and heat set. I masked the top with a paper towel and stamped the apples to look like they were inside. I sprinkled with embossing powder and heat set. I masked those apples and the barrel, stamped the apples one more time, sprinkled with embossing powder and heat set. And then, I colored. :o)
Thanks for visiting!
