hopping with pretty pink posh!


There's a new Pretty Pink Posh release this week and I think it might be the best one yet! In fact, I'm a little obsessed with the new Wild Rose stamp set, as you will see in a minute but first let me tell you about prizes...

There are 4 $25 gift certificates up for grabs! Winners will be picked randomly along the blog hop (both days). Comments must be left by 11:59 PM PST on 11/7/2017 and winners will be announced on the PPP blog so make sure to leave a little "hello" along the hop to enter.

Ok, back to the Wild Rose set...I used my MISTI to create a cascade of Wild Roses and then I stamped in different inks & played with an assortment of mediums.

#1. VersaFine, Clean Color & Aqua Shimmer
I stamped with my favorite black ink for watercoloring or pretty much anything, VersaFine. I colored just one flower with Clean Color Real Brush Markers and used a Nuvo Aqua Shimmer glitter gloss marker to blend. Finally I added a layer of Glossy Accents over the top for dimension and shine. It's hard to capture but the glossy glitter is so yummy!

#2. Clean Color & Nuvo Mousse
I stamped the flowers again using a Copic-friendly ink (I find it works better with the Nuvo Mousse). Then I coated the entire panel with Mother of Pearl Nuvo Mousse. It's like DIY shimmer paper with the stamped image underneath. I used the Clean Color markers to color the flowers, over the mousse, blending with just a little water. The final touches were sequins of course, and Nuvo Glitter Drops flower centers and smudged on the panel too.


#3. Distress Oxides
On this card, the flowers are stamped in Distress Oxide. Then I used more Distress Oxide to watercolor in a messy, Carly fashion.

And I used one of the tiny, cute sentiments from the PPP Bear Hugs set. 

Thanks for stopping by and have fun hopping!

Hugs!
Carly

All three of your cards are very beautiful! I knew you could add Nuvo Mousse around stamped images with masks, but I didn't know you could color right over it! Thanks for sharing that tip!

Francine D said...

Very beautiful and creative ideas. Love how you played around AND showed us the results. I was curious how you would use the Nuvo Mousse, and it is fantastic. I really love your last card using the distress inks. its like no line coloring and water coloring. Super pretty. I'm in your shoes too; I love that wild rose set. It is so beautiful

MiamiKel said...

Oh wowee, look. at. this! Ammmmazing! I just heard the term triple threat and I'd say it applies here - 2 cards, 3 techniques, 3 beauties! Each one is so unique and my eye zeroed right in on the Nuvo gold - what a vivid burst of beauty! LOVELY work - TFS! ♥

TinyCrafter said...

I love, love, love, love and did I mention I love your card? LOL Guess why? Your card has my favorite color in the whole wide world and a color that not enough people except me use very often, yellow! Today I have yellow corduroy pants on. Wow, that is such a beautiful stamp set! I love your Zig markers. I don't have any of those yet. I love glitter or anything with glitter but for some reason when I scan a card that has glitter on it, ir never seems to show up, so I get what you mean. The cards always look better in person is what I tell everyone and I see you sort of said that too. The glitter that I can see looks very pretty. I've never heard of Nuvo Mousse before. How do you use it, with your fingers or a Q-Tip? I may have to ask Santa for some for Christmas.
Thank you for showing us your beautiful card and making me drool over all your yellow. Thanks also for giving us the chance to win something.

Kari V. said...
