Barb King here, and I am so honored to be invited to be a guest designer on the Creative Imaginations Blog.
I’m a teacher, and I have always enjoyed creating paper craft projects with my students. Cardmaking became a passion of mine several years ago, and last January I started my blog, King Designs. I enjoy both teaching and taking cardmaking and mixed media classes, and it was at a card class that I first discovered Luminarte's Twinking H2O's. I loved their sparkle and how easy they were to use, and have used them extensively in my card designs ever since. I have had the pleasure of participating in inspiring classes taught by Marah Johnson and Cheryl Mezzetti using Luminarte and Creative Imaginations products. This week I will sharing some fun holiday projects with you.
I love this happy snowman stamp from Hero Arts. I stamped the image with Verasmark Ink and used white embossing powder to give the snowman definition and make it easier to paint around. The background was painted with both Majestic and Mediterranean Blue Twinkling H2O's, creating a watercolor wash effect. I went over the snowman's arms and eyes with Sharpie markers, and used a regular marker for the hat and sign.
I stamped the Hero Arts sentiment on a second piece of white cardstock, then applied some Distress Stickles Clear Rock Candy dry glitter over it to give it lots of sparkle. This was layered over the bottom section of the card. After I added the ribbon with the buckle, I attached it to the card base.
