ESAD Blog Hop - Last Chance SAB

Welcome to another ESAD Blog Hop, this time around we are saying a fond farewell to some of our favourite Sale-A-Bration products. I have created two cards, one using Hey Chic stamp set from the original release, and for the second card the wonderful new glimmer paper from the second release of products.  With Sale-A-Bration finishing at the end of March if you fall in love with any of these products don't forget to contact your local demonstrator to see how you can earn them for FREE.

My first card is one that we made at a recent class where I show cased three different techniques with the wonderful new Watercolour Pencils.  Here I used Early Espresso and Basic Grey on the chicken randomly and then blended the colours together using a Blender Pen. I think this gives a really natural look to the chicken.  I love the sentiments from this set, and this one makes the card suitable for any occasion.

My second card uses the stunning dragonfly framelits to cut the Bermuda Bay glimmer paper, let me just say that I love this paper set, and am so happy I picked it up recently. I used the cute little dots once "full strength" and once stamped off.  I repeated the stamped off dots on the oval panel and finished off with a band of Bermuda Bay baker's twine.

One of the other techniques I showed at my class was scribbling on water colour paper and then blending the colours with an aqua painter.  Here I have cut the solid dragonfly out of the water colour paper to layer under the glimmer paper.


Time to hop on over to see what the talented Libby has created.  

Happy Stamping
Monique
