I am in love with the 2020 Sale-a-bration Flowering Foil Designer Paper. OMGosh! I tend to shy away from a lot of coloring. I don’t find a relaxing at all. Lol! Today I am sharing three design I created using the Flowering Foil 2020 Sale-a-bration designer paper. Why yes……I did several types of coloring and even enjoyed doing it. [grin]
Below is my first design using the large floral images. They are fabulous, white cardstock with copper foil embossed flowers. I colored them us an aqua painter with Purple Posy and Highland Heather ink pads. I did fussy cut each flower, I know I’m crazy but I find fussy cutting relaxing. [smile] The centers are brushed with Wink of Stella. The sentiment is copper heat embossing onto Vellum. Everything was popped with Dimensionals.
My second design uses that mini all-over posy design. I sponged the entire piece with Purple Posy. I love the soft effect it gives. The sentiments are from the Ornate Thanks stamp set (available April 1st) and are heat embossed silver and copper onto Silver and Copper foils popped with dimensionals. I used the faux suede technique on the Pear Pizzazz band. It’s my go-to when I want a bit of subtle texture.
My third design using the square graphic design. I used my Aqua Painter again to color in a checker board pattern the squares in Pear Pizzazz and Purple Posy. The “Thank You is heat embossed onto Purple Posey with Copper and, you guessed it, fussy cut. [smile] I placed it with dimensionals onto a strip of Copper Foil cardstock. Also, I placed everything onto a 3-1/4″ x 5-1/2” card base. I don’t have to write an much on the inside and it still fits in an A2 size envelope. Woohoo!
