A Designer of Dreams


A fun, bright card!!!!  All the stamps are Wendy Vecchi Studio 490.  The background is Distress Paints.  Tim marble technique where you put the paints on the craft sheet, spray with water, swipe your paper through the paint (I used Ranger's manila cardstock), and dry spraying on extra water as needed for more blending/swirling of color.  Next I laid on Wendy's polka dotty stencil and stamped through the circles Wendy's number background using Archival Ink monarch orange.  The current challenge on the EverythingWendyVecchi Yahoo group is to stamp through a stencil.  Next I stamped the flowers and the sentiment with Archival jet black.  I decided the sentiment needed to pop more so I stamped it again offset a little and embossed it with white powder (it's really more of an off-white, don't know what kind it is).  To give the background more variety I put the polka dotty stencil back on covering the numbers so the cirlces were off-set from before and sponged some white paint here and there and then I stamped Wendy's text image with Archival magenta hue just getting here and there with that.  I stamped part of the small weed image around the edge like a border and finally added doodling around the edge and in the flowers with a white pen.
I'm also entering this in Simon Says Stamp and Shows challenge, Colors and Inspiration Emporium's challenge, Marvelous Masks and Spectacular Stencils.
