New Graciellie Design Stamps Blog Hop and Giveaway

 
I am so happy to be a part of Graciellie Design’s Digital Stamps blog hop today.  Gracie’s stamps are so versatile and artistically designed.  Trust me when I say you will want to inspect her shop thoroughly!  Today I'm sharing a couple of dimensional cards I made using one of her new sets called Dear Friend.  It is dreamy!
For my first card I did an embossing resist with Distress Inks in Squeezed Lemonade, Twisted Citron, and Evergreen Bough.  I always love a balance of white, black, and color on a project.
 I just adore the beautiful sentiments in this collection.  Here I created a little pennant, with distressed edges.  What a beautiful Mother's Day verse!
 The best thing about working with these digital images was the ability to print several flowers in the same size and have them turn out perfectly.  I cut out layer upon layer of petals and created a "Jolee" style embellishment from each flower.
 Splashes of watery white gesso and some white jute help balance the color.
  I colored the flowers with Twinkling H2Os.  They are exquisite in person, but the shimmer was hard to capture in the photos.  The flat background and shimmery flowers have a great contrast.
 For my second card I also did an embossing resist.  This color came entirely from pan watercolors.  It is a little darker than I had hoped for.  Let's just say a new palette is on the wish list!  But the colors remind me of spring and pansies blooming!
 I had so much fun cutting and curling each petal and love the dimension!
This and other amazing digital collections can be found at Graciellie Design’s shop HERE. For more inspiration check out last month’s release blog hop here.
