Avery Elle

Happy Birthday To You!

Today's post is my entry in Essentials by Ellen Mix It Up Challenge - the challenge is to combine products by Essentials by Ellen and Avery Elle.   This project features the Bokeh Dots by Julie set and the Avery Elle Handwritten Notes set.  

This card is a one-layer watercolor card!  I cut a piece of watercolor paper to make an A2 size card. The background is white heat embossed with the using the Bokeh set.  Next, I used Tim Holtz Distress Inks to watercolor to create an ombre look.  The greeting is heating embossed on black cardstock with some vellum and loose gold twine behind it.

Thanks for visiting and happy inklings!


First Avery Elle Challenge

The postwoman just brought me a new Avery Elle Stamp Set this week - Rounded Diamonds.  I chose the set as part of my "pre-work" for the OCC Stretch Your Stamps.  This is my second Avery Elle set - the first being a sentiment set.  Anyway, I thought I would take my new set out for a spin and participate in the AEIHeartU Challenge #10 Gold.

Challenge 10

The image that caught my eye first was the spray image.  I thought it would make a nice background.  So I chose some primary Avery Elle ink colors and went to town stamping a rainbow. The sentimnent is from my other Avery Elle set, Handwritten Notes and is heat embossed in gold on some vellum.  To enhance the gold theme, I added some gold stars and sequins.

Happy 4th of July!
