I've been playing with the new July release stencils from A Colorful Life Designs today. I used the Brick Wall stencil (LOVE LOVE LOVE!) with the new Single Bloom Wildflower stencil. These are a match made in heaven!
I started by brushing some rustic red ink over the Brick Wall stencil onto some vanilla cardstock, and then I deepened the color toward the bottom with some brown ink. I brushed the same brown ink over the Single Bloom Wildflower stencil with a heavier hand, and then I stamped the sentiment. I love it when a card comes together quickly and easily. I can make a ton of these in different colors and I can use different wildflower stencils with this brick wall. Yes, you read that right - there are other wildflower stencils in the new July release! Go check them out!

For my first card today, I used the new Floral Card Frame. Isn't that gorgeous? I stamped this frame with a green ink and then I used the same green ink to stamp the Dragonfly and the sentiment from the Dream Hope Wish Wonder set. To make this card even dreamier, I sprayed the entire piece with Ocean Depth and Vivid Volt Shimmering Bliss. It's so sparkly when you move this card around in the light.
My second card is a fun and easy one to recreate. I stamped the new Modern Dandelions with Versamark and covered them with white embossing powder. Then I pulled out my Distress Oxide inks and rubbed each flower with a different color. After I "colored" the dandelions, I gently buffed them with a tissue to remove the ink from the white embossing. The sentiment is also a new stamp called Guide Your Wishes.
My last card today is the beautiful new Summer Barn. I stamped this with a brown ink and colored it with Copic markers. The sentiment is from the In Full Bloom Sentiments set.

I was in a watercoloring mood, and I wanted to see if I could create a fiery red sunset scene. I stamped Growing Wild from Technique Junkies with permanent black ink onto watercolor paper and let it dry. Then I stamped the sentiment from the Five Fab Phrases set, also from Technique Junkies, with Versamark and covered it with copper embossing powder. If you look closely, you can see some of the copper powder on the black wildflowers. I actually like that! It's kind of like fireflies in the dark.
Then I pulled out my watercolor paints and just spread colors all over with wild abandon. I sprayed water all over and picked up the paper to let the colors run together. I love the deep red at the top and how it seeps into the orange and yellow down below. To me, these colors are always associated with summer.
This is the last week of the summer challenge at Technique Junkies. You have until Tuesday, June 30, to join in for a chance to win the entire July stamp release!! See the details on the Technique Junkies Facebook page.
