They all are available at the Joy Clair store for purchase this month. Here’s the sneak peeks of the stamp sets:
For this New Blog Hop, I created cards using the Three Wise Men Clear Stamps:
When I see the image of the Three Wise Men, I was imagining stained glass that I saw at church windows. So, I started with stamping the image with Versamark ink pad using my MISTI on a piece of Canson watercolor paper. Then I added the Ranger Gold Princess embossing powder. I did not remove the stamp of the MISTI yet, then I thought I wanted to double-heat embossed the image for more bold line for the watercoloring later. I re-stamped the image and heat-embossed it again. But if you have high-raise embossing powder, you can do the embossing just once 🙂
After embossing process, I started to color them with Spectrum Noir Aqua markers. Then with a small round painting brush, I wet the colors and turned them into watercolor look 🙂 They look fabulous, don’t you think?
And I decided to do the same double-heat embossing for the sentiment for bolder and shiner effect on a one-layer card:
Then I added some splatters on the card using Shimmerz – Inklingz Good As Gold watercolor paint with small round brush. This gold paint gives the extra shiny and metallic texture on the panel. After that I die-cut the panel with Double Stitched Rectangles Dies from Our Daily Bread Designs.
I added the panel on a black card base with lots of adhesive runner on the backside to make sure the watercolor paper stays well and flat on the card base.
Joy Clair is giving away two (2) gift cards of $25 each from Joy Clair Store. To enter, please comments on each Design Team blog post from until Sunday November 6. The winners will be announced on Joy Clair Bog on November 30.
