Heya people! I apologize for making you wait this week but Iron Craft is here and you are going to love this one!! Time to meet my guest…
Today I get to introduce you to one of my teachers 🙂 You must come out from under your rock and check out some of Julie’s tutorials if you need a longer introduction to Julie! Like me, you may have been introduced to her work through Online Card Classes.
What can I say… she is an amazing teacher, she always has a new technique up her sleeve and she stays pretty close to home in WA!
Wanna see what we played with this week?
Julie and I are both using the Hero Arts Stamp Your Story Brush Strokes set.
Its just a fun set to let your hair down and go crazy! Put some music in your craft room, get your stamping gear and have F-U-N kind of set… KWIM? Here is what we made with it…
Here are our creations, mine on the left and Julie’s on the right.
I started with coloring the background with Copics to form a nice graduated background. I then stamped my brush strokes with Versamark and and heat embossed it with white embossing powder. Then took a Copic (C5) and added the shading on the H formed with the brush strokes. The sentiment is from PTI.
Since this was a challenge with Julie and since I’ve seen so many of her videos, taken her classes… I had the little voice-of-Julie in my head all the time telling me to “keep it clean”, “use your tools properly” and “stamp straight”!
Isn’t Julie’s card such an bold, and fun card? I saw her card before I made mine so it definitely was my inspiration! You must go check out her blog for more details on it but not before you enter the giveaway!!
