Aloha and welcome to my little section of the blog hop!
I'm so excited for this fun hop to say a big
MAHALO/Thank You to the the AMAZING
I love that the tables have turned, and we now get the opportunity
to CASE Kelly! Talk about some big shoes to fill, but I'm gonna try my best!!
I love Kelly's watercolor work so here are 3 of the cards I chose...
In this card I loved the black outline with the watercolor scribbled in.
I LOVE Kelly's color combination in this card and her added white dots for details.
Kelly's designs are always so well balanced with the bold black stripe matching her
die cut black sentiment...just gorgeous!
So here's my take on her cards...
I attempted three times to capture Kelly's design.
I know you're suppose to CASE 3 cards in 1, but was indecisive in
which one I felt captured Kelly's work...oh the pressure!
I took her design from the first card and used Hero Arts Color Layering Hibiscus.
Instead of using the solid stamp that comes in the set,
I used the wash of watercolor (from Tim Holtz Distress Markers)
and stamped the next layer with Hero Arts India Ink Black
and the sentiment is from Hero Arts Hello Flowers. I loved how Kelly used the black strip
of cardstock to tie in the bold sentiment and in this CASE my hibiscus as well!
I wasn't happy with my washed out colors, because I truly loved Kelly's bold autumn colors in the second card. So I attempted a second time to get richer colors...
This time I did use the solid layering stamp in Hero Arts Wet Cement and tried
not to water down my distress ink. I added white dots for detail and actually die cut the sentiment
from Penny Black's Words of Gratitude die set.
And just for fun (because I had some ink left over) I did one more card...
I hope I've made Kelly proud! A big thank you for all those involved
in creating such a special blog hop for one special gal!
