Avocado Arts Kit #1

Kit 1 wishing you clouds background


Happy June! I hope that you had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend! I am happy to be sharing another Avocado Arts project with you today! From now on, the first of the month will be a project share. You can take a look at projects from the entire team, using the kit that will be released for the month. Today we are all sharing projects from Kit 1, Wishing you Sunshine and Smiles. And not meaning to be punny, I couldn’t “resist” playing with the clouds from this set again. :)

Kit 1 wishing you clouds background CU clouds 

I began by stamping the solid and open cloud images with watermark ink onto a piece of white cardstock. Then using clear embossing powder, I heat embossed the clouds. I spritzed water onto a paper towel and rubbed the paper towel across the top of a Faber Castell gelato. Then, using a circular motion, rubbed the color over the cardstock. The clouds resisted the color, leaving a pretty cute patterned paper behind. Now, you won’t get a perfectly white resist applying color this way, but just wipe the excess blue color off with the paper towel and it will look great.

Kit 1 wishing you clouds background CU boots 

The boots I stamped onto Neenah cardstock with Memento ink. Colored them with Copic markers and cut them out. I foam mounted the boots to  a die cut Spellbinders Labels Eight piece of patterned paper. Then I stamped the sentiment in black ink. I trimmed off the excess, following the edge of the card base.

Stop by and visit the rest of the team and see what they have up their sleeves:
