Hello! I am late in posting for our new Incy Wincy Designs Challenge but the delay is definitely worth the wait. The challenge is on Things With Wheels.
I am using a pre-colored image from our challenge sponsor, Fred She Said. Normally, I would have colored my own image but this is what was sent to me. I can't complain, right? So, got to work with what I have. The pre-colored images are so pretty. I had a hard time choosing which color to use for this post, so I used all the colors provided by the sponsor.
I printed the image on Neenah Solar white cardstock. I am using a Forever Friends 6x6 patterned paper. I strategically trimmed the paper and had to trim off the bears. If you look at some of the cards closely, you will still see a part of the bear but just less noticeable. I also had to cover a part of some of the panels with a piece of the patterned paper and a doily. It might look like it was part of the card design when actually it is not.
The window was created using Concord and 9th Love You So die. The window panel is cut at 4" x 5 1/4". I adhered this to a top folding A2 sized Neenah Desert Storm cardstock. The sentiments are heat embossed using Wow! Gold Rich Pale embossing powder. The sentiments are cut using Avery Elle Simple Sentiments die. I love this die set! I don't have to worry about trimming my sentiments strips. I just line up the die with the sentiment, then run it through the die cut machine. I stacked additional strips to add dimension to the sentiment without using foam adhesive. I actually love this technique since I get to use my scraps.
I doodled on the flowers using various gel pens in my stash. I adhered some flower sequins. The sentiment is from Lawn Fawn Mom + Me stamp set.
I doodled on the blue and gray wonky circles using gel pens. I added White Blizzard Nuvo Drop to the center of the doodled circle. The sentiment is from Lawn Fawn Mom + Me stamp set.
I added dots to the scallop using a pink Sakura Glaze pen. I adhered some flower sequins. The sentiment is from My Favorite Things BB Beary Special Birthday stamp set.
I added rainbow gems by Lucy's Cards. I added clear Wink of Stella to the circles. The sentiment is from My Favorite Things BB Beary Special Birthday stamp set.
I added clear and Purple Rain Nuvo Drop. The sentiment is from Li'l Inker Designs Modern Mandala stamp set.
I added a Doily to cover up a part of the patterned paper. I added sequins from Doodlebug. The sentiment is from Li'l Inker Designs Modern Mandala stamp set. This is my favorite because of the color and the pattern.
I traced the sentiment, which is a part of the patterned paper, with black Sakura Glaze pen. I used my gel pens to add details to the dots. I added purple Nuvo dots to the center of the circles. I adhered some silver sequins. The sentiment is from Newton's Nook Designs Newton's Graduation stamp set.
I doodled on the leaf design of the patterned paper. I adhered a green sequin to the center of the leaf pattern. I adhered small flower sequins from Simon Says Stamp to the center of the flowers on the bottom of the panel. I added dots to the other flowers on the bottom using white Sakura gelt pen. The sentiment is from Paper Smooches Magic Sampler stamp set.
