* AALL & Create: Choose to Shine



For this week's Guest DT project for AALL & Create I made a card. I used products from four designers and made a simple watercolour background with Copic coloured focal images.

Bunny and Bunnies, #354, is one of my favourite Janet Klein stamp sets. I think she goes perfectly with Tracy's hollyhock flowers, from the #451 In The Bucket set, as her backdrop.  

The beautiful sentiment 'seek the road to happiness' is from Bipasha's set #457 Background Voices and the tiny diamonds are Autour de Mwa's #484 Reverse Diamonds.

How it came together:

1. Firstly I masked along the edges of a piece of 4.5 by 6.5 inch watercolour card.

2. I stamped the Lotza Diamonds stencil with Distress Oxides, then stamped the two hollyhock flowers in grey Versafine Claire. I stamped the 'find the road to happiness' sentiment from Background Voices and some Reverse Diamonds in black along the edges of the panel.

3. I used a water brush to bleach out a little of the colour from the leaves of the flower. I then used Oxides to colour the hollyhock. I added some white and yellow Posca paint pen dots to the flower centres.

4. White splatters were added over the background.

5. I stamped Bunny & Bunnies in Memento ink so that I could use alcohol markers to colour them.

6. I coloured with Copics and fussy cut, then popped Bunny and one of her bunnies on foam tape.

7. I doodled a border around the panel and added some inky splashes in two diagonal corners.

8. I stamped one of the sentiments from set #451 onto black card and heat embossed in white. This was trimmed and added to the card on foam tape.

9. I matted the card onto black card and adhered to a 5 x 7 inch card blank.
