Small but Mighty

F2A9E0BB-857C-4BAA-88C6-A4F36BE535F0This collection of alcohol inked cards is going to be at the “Small but Mighty SK” silent auction in Saskatoon on Sept 7/19. This is in conjunction with their annual Gold Walk which raises awareness and funds for Childhood Cancer Canada. Currently less than 5% of cancer funding goes towards childhood cancers research , so dedicated funding is SO important.

Using the Misti I stamped the whole image in black, cleaned stamp and restamped with versamark and heat embossed in clear to maintain the sharp black image. Then using some Windsor and newton watercolour and a couple colours of distress inks with water I painted the sky. When I had the colors I wanted, I was worried that I was going to lose the vibrancy of the colors so while it was still wet, I covered the entire panel with clear embossing powder and heat embossed it.

Bride and groom

Using a background that I had in my bits and pieces drawer, I added Stampscapes stamps and a greeting from rubbernecker stamps
