Technique Thursday #33-2017

Watercoloring is the technique today and Tantalaya shows her talent with this card.


I used the Prima Princess stamp Stella for this card. It is also the biggest card I did this week at 5 x 7. I heat embossed the image on Bristol smooth paper and used watercolor pencils and inktense pencils. Both of these pencils activate with water the inktense ones are more vibrant color but you get similar effects. At the end, I splattered using a gold water color and added the thank you sentiment from Altenew Label Love French stamp set. - Tantalaya

Card Sketch Wednesday #33-2017

Today we start with this card sketch.


Tantalaya's take on the sketch is a great one.



The sketch challenge I turned on its side. I used the Butterfly stamp set from Concord & 9th for the main sentiment. I used the 49 and Market paper in the purple, the yellow and silver papers are from a DCWV set. I then finished off the card with sequins from Pretty Pink Posh. I like sketches because they give the guideline and when you want to can break the rules and think outside the box.- Tantalaya

Sympathy Tuesday #33-2017

This sympathy card by Tantalaya is just lovely.


For this card, I used the bleaching technique. I stamped and embossed the same image from the Concord & 9th Hello Lovely stamp set on black paper with black embossing powder. I then took bleach and I keep a separate brush that I only use for when I am bleaching and began coloring in my image. to help move the bleaching process along I used my heat tool and when there were areas I wanted lighter I would add more bleach. I finished it with the sympathy sentiment and behind that, I put a piece of vellum as a shadow accent. - Tantalaya
