In March, we posted a Call for Art with the theme Hope & Strength to reflect the current times we are facing with the Coronavirus.
Here are two artists who submitted beautiful work!
Sending You Hugs by Rebecca Goodwin
I hope you are all well. These postcards were created so that our family could send them to loved ones we know could use a little cheering up. We used cereal boxes from the recycling bin, acrylic paint, and StazOn ink. I hope they may inspire others to use materials they may already have in their home to send a quick note to their loved ones as well.
I stamped the floral image onto Strathmore Bristol smooth paper with Morning Mist VersaFine Clair Ink and colored it with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens. Once dry, I stamp the sentiment beneath the floral bunch in Nocturne VersaFine Clair Ink. This was mounted using foam adhesive onto a background created by stamping blue cardstock with leafy branch line art images using Platinum Planet Brilliance Ink.
Did you know that you can watercolor with VersaColor inks? Even if you only have a limited palette, you can mix colors to create a wide variety of hues! Nicole will show you how she watercolored a cute terrarium scene with only five VersaColor shades.
Alison writes: VersaMagic Inks are some of my absolute favorites because of the soft chalky finish they have, plus their blend-ability. I knew they would be perfect for this lovely hydrangea, and by using blending brushes, I colored it up very quickly. For shine, I added some sequins with On Point Glue, which is the number one liquid adhesive I reach for.
With Easter coming up you can create quick and easy painted cards, tags and invitations using VersaMagic Dew Drop ink pads as a watercolor. Stamped images are turned into pastel works of art using this amazing ink pad in soft colors. Try your hand at turning these ink pads into paints in a few easy steps.
In this video, I showcase the various greens available in the Memento dye inkpads for Shamrock stamps. In addition, I’m sharing a few tips on heat embossing images using Mboss in New Years Eve (beautiful sparkle black powder) plus a quick and simple heat embossed border on St. Patrick’s Day cards. Enjoy!
