I really don’t know how to start an intro about me blog post, so I thought I would skip that for today and think of some interesting factoids about myself for the next post.
Last month I created a project inspired by my darling niece Sofia’s love for all things elephants. Of course as soon as I started working on her card she quickly changed her mind, and decided she loves puppies. I guess at 3 attention spans are limited.
I knew I wanted to make something special for her… a bit more “artsy” than my traditional style, so I turned to the ever distracting Youtube for inspiration. This led me to Laura Bassen (laurafadora.wordpress.com). She used a fun technique called Watercolour Smooshing. I wanted to try this technique by adding white embossed hearts onto watercoulour paper, then I smooshed Tim Holtz Distress Inks onto a transparency and added water for an easy whimsical watercolour background. I added this too cute stamp from Kraftin Kimmie’s called “Dream Big”, which I coloured with copic markers.
I finished the card up with some homemade epoxy dots to add some matching embellishments, and then added it to my grey cardstock.
I decided to name the card set “Safari Sofia” after my niece.
Thanks for ogling!
