Crazy Crafters Blog Hop with Jay Soriano
I'm back for another Crazy Crafters Blog Hop and today we're CASE-ing (Copy and Selectively Edit) the extremely talented Jay Soriano from Mitosu Crafts!
I love their creativity and style so it's a real privilege to be able to take part in a blog hop with Jay.
The card I have chosen to CASE this week is this amazing piece.
I love watercolouring so was drawn to this card straight away and of course, I kept with the watercolour theme for my cards.
To create my backgrounds I used a combination of Rose Red, Melon Mambo and Berry Burst ink and the smooshing technique - ink up a clear block, spritz with water, smoosh it onto your cardstock and repeat until you are happy with the colours and blending. This is a really fun and easy technique and I ended up making quite a few backgrounds to use later.
Both the ribbon and the sentiments used on my cards are from the Ribbon of Courage stamp set. For the first card, I stamped the ribbon onto vellum, heat embossed it and then cut it out using the Support Ribbon Framelits Dies.
For my second card, I stamped the ribbon directly onto my watercolour background and then heat embossed it.
I used a combination of Melon Mambo, Pink Pirouette and Whisper White cardstock for the layers and card base and added a few sequins from the Iridescent Sequin Assortment pack to finish the cards off.
I hope you've enjoyed my cards. I'd love to hear from you so please feel free to leave a comment.
