Ever since I took the Painted Petals class at Archivers I have had greeting cards on the brain.
Below are three of the cards I did in the technique class (I have already used one).
My darling husband took one look and proclaimed that I should be making cards for a living. While this is very sweet, I did not come up with the ideas or the designs for these cards. I simply created what I was told to create with minor variations to the watercolor painting.
I was however, very inspired by the techniques as I mentioned in a previous post and have played with the techniques a little here and there. This next photo I posted before but thought it was worth posting again in this context. I used the same technique as the bottom photo above but with my own personal spin.
This is another card I created this week. I used the same stamp and technique as the top left photo above but made it more my style.
While at Archivers I bought a new 6x6 paper pad by Basic Grey called Hello Luscious. The colors and papers are fabulous, bright, spring-like and so inspiring. I used the papers in the card above and the two acts below. The images are from TenTwoStudios
The last thing I want to share is another card I made called The Fortune Teller. I used the Painted Petals technique to create the hand, a 7 Gypsies tag and rub-ons, and various papers.
I hope you enjoyed my latest work and are inspired to try something new.
