Hello Joy Clair Fans! Lori from the Design Team here today! Have you seen the new Joy Clair Release?? There are so many awesome and versatile stamp sets.
For April our technique is masking. So I want to share with you a card that I made with this adorable newly released stamp set called Flawless!
Isn't this a great stamp set for anyone who has a daughter!
First I placed my stamps on some watercolor paper on my Misti to see how I want to place them on my card.
To start my card I knew I had to make a mask for the powder compact so that I could stamp the brush on top of the compact.
So I placed the powder compact and brush stamps on some watercolor paper on my Misti.
Then I stamped them with some black ink.
Next I fussy cut them out so I could mask off the powder compact where I want the brush to be lying on top of the compact. So I place the cut out brush onto the paper and then I stamp the compact onto the paper.
Now I can remove the brush mask and stamp the brush on top of the compact.
I placed the stamps where I wanted them on my card to see how it looks, and then if I like the layout I start stamping the stamps with black ink onto the watercolor paper.
When I have stamped everything it is time to color the images.
To color the images I used Copic marker BG10 to color in the mirror on the compact. I used E02 for the powder, W1 and W3 for the compact, C5 for the bristles on the brush, E37 for the wand of the brush, W3 for the band in the middle. For the lipstick I used W3, R85 and E04. I used BG23 for the mascara and R20 for the Be-You-tiful box. Then I took Wilted Violet Distress Oxide and watercolored the background with that and then I spritzed some water on it.
But it still didn't look quite right to me, so I stamped the flowers by the box with black ink and I used Blue Lagoon Nuvo Crystal Drops for the centers of the flowers and then I put three little dots of the drops in the top left hand corner and then the bottom right hand corner. I decided to add the sentiment, so I stamped that with black ink in the middle of the card. I mounted that to some turquoise paper and then added that to a white A2 card base.
This was my first time using the Distress Oxide so I think I will have to practice with it some more. I love the way the card came out with all the beauty items and the sentiment!
