3-D Love Card by Jenny Gropp

Love this fun dimensional technique by Jenny Gropp!

 
 
I really was in the mood to color! So I pulled out the new Vintage Honeycomb Background once again. Every time I see this I think of Sandy's Hex Chart for Copics. I gave the background a little rainbow makeover and added a little die cut. After all the coloring I couldn't cover it up! 
 
 
AND then.... after I colored in the little hexes I thought it would be fun to make them all glossy! About halfway through I was rethinking that idea! LOL... but kept going. It is vibrant and very shiny in person!
 
 
Copics used: 
R46, R43, YR18, YR09, YR04, Y35, Y11, G43, G46, B41, B45, B26, BV17, BV11, V09, V06
 
 
The die cut heart is popped up for a little added dimension.
 
A little inside stamping from the set "Count the Ways" for that forever friend!

Kissing Technique by Dina Kowal

Dina Kowal creates a beautiful textured image with the "Kissing" technique.


I used stamps from my Together Silhouettes clear set - my MISTI (from My Sweet Petunia) was so helpful for getting multiple impressions for great coverage as well as a 'kissed' layer of grey ink for texture (I inked a grid stamp and stamped it onto the stamp, then overstamped the image).

I wanted to try a curved version of yesterday's Pleated Skirt Fold tutorial over on Splitcoast, so I used one of the dies from the Hill Landscape Layers set to cut the edge.

 


I wanted to use this grey cardstock for the pleats, so I stamped and sponged on the back side for a little contrast.

 
Have a great day!
