Angie Blom for Paper Funday

Welcome to the first Paper Funday Challenge for 2024! Another year...more opportunities to create, create, create!!!
The sponsor I choose this month was Angie Blom Digital Designs. I was in a Valentine's Day mood and wanted to work with her image called Sprinkle Love SK-200. If you love digital stamps, check out this shop. The downloads include a pre-formatted set of 4 images. You just print them off, cut apart and you have 4 cards! This is what I did with this set of 4:
If you follow me, you know I print the images with a laser printer and Ranger Ink's Tim Holtz Distress Watercolor Cardstock. To paint I only use one brush - #8 Silver Black Velvet. It holds a lot of paint and comes to a very tiny point, so I don't need various sizes of brushes.
Today's cards were watercolored with Mungyo Professional Half Pan WatercolorsI watercolor at lunchtime at work...I do get quite a bit done every day in only 1/2 hour. I always look forward to my coloring time!
I like to add some extra details to a simple image on my card. Besides Glossy Accents on the hearts, I've used Penny Black's Creative Dies - Textural on the card above and the cut out border on the card below is from Spellbinder's Winter Border Etched Dies from the Tinsel Time Collection:
You can see the Glossy Accents better here. I bought the smallest bottle - .5 oz., for I found it has a tinier tip and works better for me than the larger bottle - 2 oz.
This heart border on the card below is from a retired company called W Plus 9, Heart Border Die. Also, the stitched lines on the bottom of the cards is from the Spellbinders Winter Border Etched Dies from the Tinsel Time Collection run through my Sizzix Big Shot Die Cutting Machine 3 times. I like that texture on my cards.
Thank you for joining me today and come join us this month at The Paper Funday Challenge - Anything Goes!
