Gold and Black / Dorado y Negro / Dourado e Preto

Today I have this very elegant card to show you. I haven´t used this bold combination of colors but I love the results. An embossed image always gives a card a very proffesional look. This abstract flower stamp and the gold embossing powder are from Inkadinkado.

The sentiment I stamped is from yesterday´s set. I thought it looked beautiful and most important it is a biblical verse I wanted to share with you. Sometimes it´s hard, I know, but I think this is humanity`s only hope. The times we are living are not easy. The only thing that keeps us hanging is love, for our family, for what we do, for our community, for God...

Hope you enjoy today´s card.

Hoy tengo esta tarjeta elegante para mostrarles. No he usado esta audaz combinación de colores pero me gusta el resultado. Una imagen en relieve le da a una tarjeta un toque muy profesional. Esta imagen floral abstracta y el polvo dorado para relieve son de Inkadinkado.

La frase sellada es del set de ayer. Pensé que se veía hermosa y aún más importante, es un verso bíblico que quería compartir con ustedes.

"Ámense los unos a los otros"

A veces es difícil, lo sé, pero sé también que el principio de este versículo es la única esperanza de la humanidad. Estamos viviendo tiempos difíciles. Lo único que nos mantiene resistiendo es el amor a nuestra familia, a lo que hacemos, a nuestra comunidad, a Dios...

Espero que disfruten mi tarjeta de hoy.

Hoje tenho um cartão elegante para vocês. Não tenho usado uma combinação de cores tão atrevida mais gostei do resultado. Uma imagem gravada em relevo faz que o cartão tenha um toque profissional. Esta imagem floral abstracta e o pó dorado para relevo são de Inkadinkado.

A frase selada é do set de óntem. Pensei que ficava linda e mais importante que isso, é um verso bíblico que eu queria compartilhar com vocês.

"Amar uns aos outros"

As vezes é díficil, eu sei, mais sei também que o principio deste verso é a unica esperanza para a humanidade. Estes são tempos difíceis. A única coisa que nos mantém resistindo é o amor por nossa familia, pelo que fazemos, por nossa comunidade, por Deus...

Espero que gostem do meu cartão de hoje.

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…
