Elegant Grace's Little Note Card

Today is my day on Kennedy Grace Creations to show off their gorgeous stamps!! Hi, I'm Beverly Jordan. 


Today I am using Graces little Note stamp set and Frozen Sequins. I chose the colors of Peach and dark Turquoise. Using my Copics sketch markers I colored the petals with R00 first, adding the darker color of R22 at the center of each flower. Then using R20 in strokes touch the edge of the R22 color and going away from the darker color toward the edges of each petal which gives the petals a realistic look. Straight "flicking" strokes lifting up at the end of each, brings natural shading to the petals. Following the same method with the following colors for the leaves using YG11, YG63, and BG09. Then using BG70 and second touch color of BG75 for shading around the whole image. I like to stay with the blues for shading instead of the grays sometimes.  
The whole card just came together so easily but I didn't have ribbon so used R22 to color Seam Binding to match perfectly.
Other supplies included: MISTI; Memento Tuxedo Black ink; Spellbinders die with gold Recollections paper as well as their Blue metallic paper; Copic coloring paper was Neenah Bright White 110 lb.; Scrapbook Adhesives 3L tape runner and Crystal lacquer to adhere the sequins where I wanted; Fiskars 12 inch cutter and scissors.
I didn't have the right shade of ribbon so using Copic R22, and white seam binding, I colored it to match perfectly.
Challenges:
Am also playing along with Kathy Racoosin's #thedailymarkerchallenge of coloring every day. It is so fun and relaxing!!!
Love and Laughter,

Spreading Kindess card

Hello everyone, Erica on the blog today!

I don't know about you but I've been quite saddened to see so much hatred, friends attacking friends and general unkindness going around lately. Regardless of your political/religious/personal beliefs I think we can all do better with keeping it a bit civilised and perhaps doing less talking and more actions. With that in mind I made this card with a positive message to send out some positive karma into the world.

















Using an A2 panel cut out from Ranger Ink water colour paper, I dusted it generously with my anti-static tool as I was going to heat emboss the gorgeous Just A Rose stamp set. I started by stamping it in the middle with VersaMark ink and dusting it with white embossing powder, also from Ranger Ink. Using a mask I already had, I stamped it again on both sides to create a rose bush border, before adding and setting the embossing powder with my heat tool.

Using a sentiment from Mama Elephant's 'Butterfly Kisses' I st…
