Hi, it’s Maria and today I have an easel card for you showcasing some of Donna’s new products from Prima and Unity along with some PanPastel work.
Using PanPastel, I blended colors together to fill a 12” x 12” piece of Bazzill Smoothie cardstock. Colors listed below.
I love Donna’s new 2-step Unity stamps, but today I just used one part—the outline. I randomly stamped over the background I had just made with PanPastel until the page was filled.
After I was done I sprayed the card with Krylon Matte Finish to seal the PanPastel. You will need (1) 4.75” x 6.75” piece and (1) 4.75 “ x 3.5” piece of the paper for your project. Save the rest! It makes beautiful backgrounds in your Art Journal or to add to other projects. You will also need a 10” x 5” piece of black cardstock for the base scored at 2.5” and 5”.
Using Donna’s new ATC Canvas pieces I used a masking technique using the same stamp that I used on the small piece of paper. This time I only wanted the word Inspire so I masked over the rest of the sentiment and the “d” in Inspired. This was stamped onto the canvas. I also edged the canvas with PanPastel.
One of Donna’s new Sculpture Poppies was added to the canvas with a ribbon behind it. I used Helmar 3D Zap Dots to attach the bottom piece with the sentiment to the card. It needs to be elevated to enable the card to become a easel.
Stickles were added to the centers of the flowers for a little extra bling.
