OCL CHA Release Party!

It’s finally here!  Our Craft Lounge’s Big release party – they are releasing 28 new stamp sets, and to celebrate they are giving away one of each (details below)!  You can view/purchase all of the sets here:    2009 Winter CHA Release Sets

Today I’m going to show you an AWESOME flower set – and give you a chance to win it! 

Whispy Blooms

This set is available in Crafty Cling Rubber

Here are a few of my samples:

kisaswhispyblossoms2

I used another OCL new release set called Whispy Patterns for the background paper.  I did a technique that I’ll call ‘dirty stumping’ (because I think it sounds funny and I can’t think of any other good name for it!) I used odorless mineral spirits and Prismacolor pencils.  The technique, well it was really easy – I just colored some circles (with three different colors) over the entire piece of the stamped background piece, took a large stump, soaked it with mineral spirits, and began blending in a circular motion – I kept the stump ‘dirty’ and just kept blending until the entire paper was colored– I was thrilled with the results!   I used the Prismacolor pencils for the main image as well, and although you cannot see it in the picture, the flower centers are made with a large glue dot and microbeads! 

I basically did the same technique for this card – just used two colors for the background – and Whispy Patterns was also used for this one!

Hi Kisa,

I'm just new to your blog and I love what I see. I've also been over to Cami's and have seen the whole 28 new releases, and Whispy Blooms is definitely my favorite. I love what you have done with these gorgeous stamps.
