Love TAGPlorations Blog Hop Day 4

Hello everyone… It is the Day 4 of the Love TAGplorations Blog Hop. There are many gorgeous inspirations from the STAMPlorations Girls on the blog today.

Come and blog-hopping with us! Do not forget to leave comment along the way for chances to enter the giveaway (info at the bottom of this post) 🙂

Today, I am sharing another mixed media card with using ghosting technique using stencil and color burst powder. I have so much fun creating with the new Zen Hearts ARTploration Stencil for this blog hop week!

After I did the background, I die cut the panel with Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Nesting Dies – CUTplorations and Luggage Tags Nesting Dies – CUTplorations.

The sentiment is from Pocket Blooms with CUTplorations Pocket Die that I stamped on a white cardtock with archival black ink, and cut it out.

I finished the card with some twine on the tag and some clear gems assortment on it.

  1. Great color combination in this design, Helen. However you incorporated the tag, it’s as if its partially embedded–wow!–I really like this.

  2. One of my favorites, Helen! Love the colors and details! Beautiful heart stencil design and I love the tag shape! Nicely done!

  3. Gorgeous watercoloured card Helen. Love the deep turquoise, and the soft colour for the ghosted, stenciled heart. Thanks for sharing with us at CAS Watercolour.
