Tiger Lily Card (KBD Aloha Friday Challenge #82 Mid Inspiration)

Happy Friday everyone! :o)

Today I'm sharing a mid-inspiration project for an ongoing Aloha Friday Challenge at Kitty Bee Designs.

The challenge for this fortnight is #82 - Orange and Black. Feel free to use other colors, just make Orange and Black main colors in your project.

Our sponsor for this challenge is Aurora Wings, whit an amazing prize for one lucky winner.

For this challenge I made this Tiger Lily Card, using our sponsor's gorgeous image 'Tiger Lily Sprite' Digital Stamp.

How I made my card...

I printed the image on a watercolor paper. I left it dry through the night. When I print digital images I always leave them dry at least half an hour, to prevent ink smearing. I tried different mediums on printed images in the past and they all smear black printer ink, if not dried well. You can find more helpful tips on how to use digital images in one of my old posts, here.

Next day I colored the image. I colored sprite's skin and sepals with colored pencils. I used paper stump to blend colors in paper. Then I colored petals and stamens in watercolor technique using Distress Inks, water and fine rounded paint brush. 

When I was finished with coloring I fussy cut the image and colored the edges with black marker.

And then my troubles started... I couldn't decide what to do with the image. Background, no background, clean or busy, splatters, sentiment, no sentiment... I liked it all, but there was so little black and it didn't meet the challenge, at leas tin my eyes. Well, now I have some great layouts and ideas I will definitely use very soon, with this or some other image. Lastly I went with black and white busy patterned paper. To do so, I was inspired with gorgeous card by Marika Gewalli of Craftybit Creations. :o)

I glued the image on the patterned paper, glued it on a white top folded square card base and my card was finished. :o)

Voodoo Doll Monochrome Card (LMMS Inspiration)

Hi everyone! :o)

It's Little Miss Muffet Stamps Inspiration Week and I made this CAS (clean and simple), Voodoo Doll Monochrome Card. :o)

For this card I used cute LMM's Forgotten Scraps 'Voodoo Misschief' digital stamp. There are more Voodoo characters in LMMS shop and you can find them all here. Just perfect for Halloween cards. :o)

I also used two fonts I downloaded from dafont, 1942 Report Font and Impact Label Font. Love these two!! :o)
Important: Read licences before downloading.

How I made this card...

I made a layout on my computer (the image and word 'happy') and printed it out on a white cardstock base. I watercolored the ground and dried it with a heat tool.

I printed one more image on a watercolor paper and colored him with Distress Inks in watercolor technique. After I was finished with coloring, I fussy cut him out, colored edges with black marker and glued him on the card base, over the printed image (paper piecing).

Then I printed word 'Halloween' on a white cardstock paper scrap, cut it out, colored edges with black marker and got lovely label, as if I had label maker. Awesome!! I love label maker font and was planing to buy label maker, but with this font and printer, that's really unnecessary. :o)

I also love typewriting machine font, i.e. 1942 Report Font, which I used for word 'happy'. I do have typewriting machine and did tried it before I made the layout, but it's small and it was not pleasant to my eye when I was planning the layout, so I decided to go with the digital font. I use typewriting machine to make labels for my craft supplies. Love it so much!!! :o)

I glued 3-D foam on the label and placed it on the card.

Firstly, heart of the voodoo doll was colored in red. After I assembled the card, I didn't like it at all. I tried to cover red with black marker and I made it worse. I went with more paper piecing. I printed one more image on the watercolor paper and fussy cut the heart out. Then I colored the heart and stitches with Distress Inks in watercolor technique, dried it, colored edges with black marker and glued it on the image. Better. :o)

Lastly, I glued two black enamel stickers on the card and covered eyes (buttons) and heart with gloss resin to create glossy accents and my card was finished. :o)
