Hi everyone! It's Monday and I think I am now caught up from my trip to CHA. I mean really, how does laundry pile up so quickly?! LOL :) This week's featured artist is SO talented, I could look at her cards for hours. You MUST go check out her BLOG. I know you will adore everything she creates. Yep, this week's featured artist is Lani Bin Haider and here's her first inspiration card:Lani's card is so delicate and pretty! I love her red and green color combo. Her coloring has a softness that suits this stamp perfectly. And that sentiment banner adds a bright and fun touch.
Here is my take. I was especially inspired to do a center panel that features the emboss resist technique:
The center panel was created by stamping Hero Arts CG192 Floating Garden with VersaMark ink on white paper and heat embossing with clear embossing powder. Then I used Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft PITT Artist Pens to color in the image. I was able to color quickly and wipe off anything that went "outside the lines" with a baby wipe. The green background was created by embossing Hero Arts layering paper with a Sizzix embossing folder. After embossing I sanded the raised areas and then colored the sanded areas with a green Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Stampers Big Brush Marker. The sentiment is Hero Arts CL351 Friends.
Today is also the kick-off of the Tiffany Doodles February challenge. Be sure to check out the Tiffany Doodles BLOG for details on the challenge and how to win a gift certificate for the new and improved digi store. Here are my samples created by coloring this great image, Stained Glass Heart, with copics and then coloring white cardstock with Distress Ink and flicking it with water for the backgrounds. The text stamp is by Hero Arts, CL479 Dictionary Greeting.
Thanks for popping by! See you tomorrow with another FANTASTIC card by Lani! HUGS!
