OCC Day 9 & 10

Hello everyone,

Today in class we are still using the floral stamps and how to use them in different ways.

Here is the card I made for Day 9.

I loved Jennifer's card and I used the WPlus 9 Spring Blooms Stamp set, WPlus 9 Whole Lotta' Happy  and a mix of Hero Arts and Simon Says Stamp inks. When stamping the sentiment it's always a good idea to make sure you have the stamp right side up before heat embossing it (to quote the amazing Julie Ebersole "ask me how I know").

Luck for me it worked out and I had to trim up the bottom as I got red ink on it and I have no idea how it got there!  But again, it worked out.  I gold embossed the sentiment as well as highlights on the leaves.  For that I used my Versamark pen. It works just like a copic but has the VersaMark ink and you can put in the ink in the smallest of places.

Day 10

I took inspiration from Jean's card.  I used first and second generation stamping to give me the colour variation and you can't see it but I used Wink of Stella clear glitter pen on the leaves.  I cut out three little fish by hand as I don't have any fish dies with scrap paper.  I then used clear embossing powder to make them shiny.  I also used a Viva Pealen-Pen in ice white to make the little bubbles.
