Spread Color - Brea Reese Brand Ambassador Post!

Happy Tuesday!!  I've got a new Brea Reese Brand Ambassador post for you today, and today I have a colorful mixed media peacock card!  I've been in a very artsy type of mood lately, and I was going to go a completely different way with this card when a friend mentioned a "marbled acrylics" technique she'd recently started doing.  Basically you scoop up Artist Acrylic Paint with a palette knife and just start spreading the colors around on regular cardstock.  I loved it from the minute I tried it.  Every single one comes out differently, and you never know how the colors are going to blend.  I wanted some shimmer so I did drip Liquid Glitter onto my paints before picking them up with the knife.  Such a cool technique!


The border piece of cardstock, I did the marbling technique on a piece of black cardstock.  The popped up accent piece that the sentiment and peacock are on was obviously blended on white cardstock.  See how all the colors blend to make new ones?  Love it!  You'll be seeing this from me again in the future!

The peacock is colored with my favorite coloring medium, Glitter Inks.  In person she just jumps off the card at you, she's so sparkly. The sentiment tag is colored with the same colors of Glitter Ink.

Foil Love - Momenta Brand Ambassador Post!!

Happy Hump Day!!  I've got another Momenta Brand Ambassador post for you today using a new-to-me product, Wood Tags!  I'm a big tag person and I just knew these would make adorable love-themed cards.  They come with gold glitter on the bottom third, and it's the high-quality kind that doesn't come off.  I thought they would pair really well with the Watercolor Foil paper pad, and they really did.  I finished them off with the Glitter Stickers and voila!  Two quick and easy cards that don't look like they only took five minutes to make!

(foil is sooooo hard to photograph!)

So Very Blessed - Brea Reese Brand Ambassador Post!!

Happy Tuesday!!  I've got a new Brea Reese Brand Ambassador post for you today, sharing a Thanksgiving card!!  I like sort of non-traditional sentiments and such, and this card completely fits that bill.  I apologize that it's hard to see the Glitter Inks that I used on the leaves.  It's soooo hard to photograph shimmery things!!!  The background is mildly shimmery as well, I created it with a blend of the Watercolor Inks and Gold Liquid Metal. I cannot stress enough how amazing the Liquid Metals are, you need these in your studio!!

Radiate Sunshine! - Momenta Brand Ambassador Post

Happy Friday!!  I've got another Momenta Brand Ambassador post for you today using one of my favorite Momenta paper pads, Watercolor Splash.  It's been so gloomy here the past few days, I wanted to will the sun to come out!! On top of the cardstock I layered one of the foil doilies.  I love how they catch the light.  The vellum sticker sentiment is Momenta as well.  I adhered it to the same watercolor cardstock and popped up the center sentiment part for interest.

I'll give you a hint, it's chocolately and awesome!  I made this bag by hand, because I wanted something bigger than my Cricut or my punch board could make.
