Dream On

Today I'm sharing two cards made with Graciellie Design's new "Dream On" digital stamp set. This set features a large peacock feather and no less than eight sentiments!

For my first card I:
  • tapped out Ultramarine Blue and Lime Green Colorburst powders (Ken Oliver) onto a piece of watercolor paper
  • spritzed with water, soaked up some of the color with baby wipes, and heat set
  • printed my feather/sentiment over top 
    • (So happy I finally figured out how to change the color of digital images in my Photoscape program -- I even managed to make this one variegated!)
  • added a couple sequins

For my second card I:
  • Printed a large peacock feather and one of the sentiments on white card stock  
  • colored the feather with Prismacolor Pencils
  • distressed the edges of my card front and the sentiment 
  • added stenciling around the edges with the Watercolor stencil from Tim Holtz and Mermaid Lagoon/Mowed Lawn Distress Ink (Ranger)
  • added three sequins
