We have an extra special post from Guest Designer Sue Symens! Sue went all out and made some absolutely stunning stamped treasure using Nature Girl designed by Donna Gray!

Welcome back, Sue!

Hey there! My name is Sue Symens. Also known as Sentimentally Sue or SentSue. I am popping on the Blank Page Muse blog today to do a little guest designing. I am excited to share some cards with you for the Blank Page Muse February Challenge. The challenge for February is to use three or more stamps on your card. I am hopping my cards will spark a little creativity for you, and you will join the fun on this challenge.

My first card started with a watercolor panel that I wet and used my watercolor pens to create a loose heart and a wash of pinks, purple and red.

 
 After the panel dried I stamped the Shorthand Writing Note Segment Background in mauve ink over the heart image. Then taking the small floral image from the Nature Girl stamp set I stamped it in black ink and colored them with alcohol markers adding some Stickels to the flower centers.  I also stamped the girl and her wings on heavyweight white card stock. Then colored her with alcohol markers, fussy cut her out and added Stickels to the wings.



The greeting from the Set of 3 Sentiment Phrases was stamped in black ink on the watercolor panel. I trimmed the panel down to 4” by 5.25” and mounted to a white top-folding card base with foam tape. Then mounted the girl to the card front to the card with foam tape. (Five Stamps)




My next card started with a side folding white card base that I stamped the Flowers Texture Background Frame stamp with pale gray ink. Then I stamped the leaf from the Nature Girl set three times in the frame window in black ink. I then colored it with alcohol markers.





Finally I stamped the greeting from the Set of 3 Sentiment Phrases in 
black ink on a scrap if white card stock, added to card front with foam tape and added a few black glossy Nuvo drops. (Three Stamps)





My final card started with a 4” by 5.25” white panel that I traced a circle with pencil to build my wreath. Then stamping the fern image from the Nature Girl stamp set in three colors of green ink over the light pencil line staggering the colors.





The girl and small flower image from the Nature Girl set was stamped in black ink and heat embossed with clear detail powder. The greeting from Tim Holtz Small Talk Stickers was heat embossed with clear powder and layered on the panel. I then mounted the panel to a black card base.





I hope this sparked a little inspiration and you will join us for the February Challenge.
