Medallion of Flowers

Inspired by a color challeng I made this card from the left over part of watercolor paper I died with oxide inks directly from my craftsheet. I used tree colors: fossilized amber, spiced marmalade and worn lipstick.

After the coloring I used the Bold flower medallion in a bed of calligrapy stamp with versamark on the watercolor and embossed the image with silver embossing powder. I decorated the circle with three sticky pearls.

On the top and bottom of the card you see a pair of ginkgo leaves in matching colors as decoration. The card is mounted on silver paper and decorated with a pink organza ribbon before mounted on the pink card. Thank you for looking and have a creative day!

Glorious Rose

Hello all, Kia here with you and I would like to share this beautiful Old Fashioned Rose with you today.

With the first day of spring being this past Monday, I have bright and yellow on my mind.  One of my dear friends lives in British Columbia and she belongs to an International Womens Soriority, where the flower is the Yellow Rose.  I would like to send her this card to give to one of her Sorority Sisters, hence my choice to watercolour in the yellows.

To start, I am using Fabriano 140lb Hot Press Watercolour Paper.  I love this paper for heat embossed images as it embosses beautifully.  I watercoloured the Rose using Zig Brushes in several shades of yellow, and for the leaves I used a few shades of greens.  Once my image was dry I stamped the lovely Rose sentiment in a Burnt Orange, then matted using a coordinating yellow cardstock, and added a bit of bling via sequins to finish.

I very much enjoyed the relaxing time spent colouring this image and hope you enjoy this card as well.  Thanks so much for visiting the Art Neko Blog today … I look foward to seeing you next time.

A Tulip’s Beauty

Hello to you, Kia with you today.  I have a spring card to share, with the beautiful weather we have been having, all I can think about is spring and colours.

I used Art Neko’s Framed Tulip for my card, along with the Tulip with Monogram T sentiment.  For my background I stamped the sentiment stamp several times and heat embossed using clear embossing powder on the pale pink cardstock.  I stamped the tulip by colouring it with Distress Markers and spritzing with water before stamping.  I added a bit more colour by adding a deeper pink to the stamp and spritzed again before stamping. There is a frame as part of this stamp, but I cut it off  my piece only because I wanted a smaller image. I went around the image piece with the Citron marker that I coloured the leaf with to give it separation from the pink cardstock, then attached it to the card on foam strips.  And, me being me, I added sequins … they are like the sunshine on a cloudy day for me.

 This is a close up view showing the details of the tulip.  I wanted my tulip to be white with the pink, but I could also paint in the white areas with a coordinating colour for a different look.

Thank you for joining us here at Art Neko Blog today. I hope you enjoy this card today and I look forward to seeing you next time.

Watercolored Bamboo

Watercolor Bamboo by Kia Gibson Clapper

Hello everyone,

Kia with you today to share this beautiful stamp called Bamboo and Bird Sumi-e.  I wanted to do something different today, so I stamped my image with Peeled Paint and spritzed with water. Using my aqua brush I pulled the colour, and added a lighter green called Shabby Shutters to the image.  Once dry, I outlined the image with Mustard Seed on the right side and dried again, then adding the turquoise and pulling it toward the edges, where it gets lighter. I am happy with the look and thought it would make a great birthday card, so I stamped a birthday greeting and added my trademark sequins to finish. I hope you have enjoyed this card, and I will see you next time. Thank you for visiting Art Neko today.
