Puffy PIllows


Technique #2 -- Puffy Pillows.  Also this is a CASE, it was well received by our club members.  It's a little difficult to tell from the picture, but the pillows are actually puffy looking...and of course, everyone had to touch the sample before they got started on theirs!  The technique is very simple ... lay the pillows face down on the Stampin' Pierce Mat.  Using a rounded edge (end of aqua painter works well--stylus tip is a little harsh) just rub along the edges of each pillow, place a dimensional inside, and that's it! -- Puffy Pillows.

The stamp set is called Sitting Here, a nice "comforting" stamp.  The colors are Whisper White, Flirty Flamingo, and Black.  The pillows are just colored in with different markers.

Watercolor Smoosh Version two

My deepest apologies for my followers...I think this has been the longest in between blogs.  So much going on personally.  And I really miss stamping and blogging.  Hopefully I'm back!

Today's card is from one of our technique cards.  The background I called Watercolor Smoosh V2.  Prior when watercolor smoosh was done, the block was inked and spritzed.  For this one, the "D" block was inked with bermuda bay, soft sky, and pacific point (marker).  Then the instead of spritzing the block, the watercolor paper was spritzed, then gently touched with a napkin/paper towel, then applied to the block.  Sometimes an aqua painter was used to spread the ink.

The Swirly Bird bundle is so cool!  There are so many possibilities with this set.  Flowers, boats, kites, birds....just lots of fun stuff.  A must have from this catalog!
