Deleite en Lila


Una nueva semana comienza y estoy lista para un nuevo reto, esta vez en la comunidad de Latina Crafter en su reto No. 31. Es mi primera participación alli y me siento orgullosa de poder presentar una tarjeta en español junto con otras artesanas latinas. Aunque no tengo la fortuna de tener los sellos de la compañía se puede participar, lo cual se agradece.

Como se trata de un sketch, quise respetarlo al máximo. Siempre incorporo algunos giros en él y por supuesto incorporo varios elementos que caracterizan mis diseños. Y este fue el resultado:

Elegí hacer la tarjeta color lila... ¡Ah que bello color! Disfruté mucho hacerla. Para comenzar, texturizé la base misma de la tarjeta. Le siguen una franja de encaje blanco que cubre la etiqueta del mensaje. Luego elaboré un marco de la exacta estructura que muestra el sketch. Una vez hecho eso, lo sobre enmarqué con lo que aparece como encaje de papel estampado. Dos características importantes del diseño propuesto para el reto son los banderines, que y también el adorno, que decidí fuera un moño lila combinando con los banderines de cinta. Uno que otro cristal y voilá...

Dreaming of a White Christmas
gilded & elegant christmas card

I have a confession to make... This year I've been drawn to make white and gold Christmas cards. I can't even think of traditional Christmas colors when I want to make a project! So today's poinsettia card and tutorial translate very well what Christmas is gonna be like this December at home.

White and gold look so elegant together! Since the holidays are all about sparkle too, I used one of my favorite glitter techniques and I'm sharing a quick and easy tutorial with youHERE.

I created the background myself, layering snowflake stamps in different designs, first in a very light beige, then in gold embossing. Afterwards, I dry embossed the stamped mat with a sutile polka dot design and used a brayer to apply light beige paint to the raised pattern.

As for the very layered and beautiful center of the card, I started out with an intricate die cut (see tutorial HERE) and continued building layers, with large snowflake die cuts and finally with a large handmade poinsettia …

Bible Journaling with Pan Pastel, Deco Foil, TCW and Unity Stamp Co.

I promised I would be back with a new art journaling inspiration project today... This might as well become a habit! This time I have a page from Psalm 31 that I handdrawn and colored with PanPastel. The softness of the PanPastel goes so well with the bible pages and it so easy to blend and color with.
I knew I wanted a bold floral image on this page. I love floral illustrations and I had to try out this Magnolia here. I handdrawn the flower in pencil first inspired by a photograph online. This time I did not feel the need to prep my page because I was not going to be using any wet media on it. Then I started shading my flower starting with a 430.5 Magenta, adding highlights with 380.8 Red Oxide Tint and 100.5 Titanium White (trying not to touch the rest of the image and only blending it on the lightest spots of the flower). I also added 470.8 Violet Tint to create a little bit of shadows but since my coloring is usually whimsical it is ok if the tones shadows and highlights are so r…
