As You See It

Distressed For AYSI...

It’s a new challenge at As You See It!  We have a recipe challenge and are charged with using watercolor, floral stamps, bright colors, pattern paper and a punch/die.

#281 8.12.2022

I started by watercoloring a background of bright pink.  I then stamped a black daisy image on it.  It came out distressed looking so when life gives you lemons…I decided to embrace the distress!  I grabbed some kraft cardstock for the base and roughed up the edges a bit as well as die cutting the daisy image with my deckled edges die.  Using some granny apple green pattern paper, I die cut a stitched jumbo fishtail and attached to the card base.  I attempted to distress the edges a bit but the pattern paper is thin so I gave up quickly!

I had great debate about adding a sentiment.  By happy accident, I found one that had a bit of a distress to it which I didn’t notice at first.  I stamped the sentiment and started to panic!  I thought I had moved the sentiment and messed up the whole card – but – that is exactly the way the stamp is supposed to look – old fashioned typed lettering that is a bit off.  See, happy accident!  I popped up the daisy image then added a bit of black bling and was done.

Sunset Silhouettes For AYSI...

It’s a new challenge at As You See It!  It’s a color challenge to use petal pink, polished pink, orchid oasis and starry sky.

Using the required colors, I did a little blending of the colors using my linen stencil.  I then die cut the paper to create the background for my flower silhouette.

I used my SU! harvest dies to die cut the flower from starry sky paper and then adhered to the blended paper.  I layered on white card stock and then popped up a sentiment as the final touch.  I loved how this turned out.

#276 6.3.2022

Now wine is my favorite beverage but I do love a martini now and again.  I love House Mouse stamps and have had this stamp for many a year and thought it would be perfect for this challenge.  I stamped the image and colored with my alcohol markers.
