Monday Montage Blog Hop – Week 74

Hello friends! Welcome back to the Monday Montage Blog Hop! You may have gotten here from the amazing Bree Renwick’s blog, make sure you select the “next” button below and that will take you to the next stop on the hop, the wonderful Dani Dziama’s blog.  As always, awesome projects will be shared today!

I just love everything about the “In This World” stamp set.  I love all the detail, the delicate images and sketchy feel.  This is another set I have been super excited to play with and finally had the chance to ink up!

Okay…looking back at my posts I almost always say “this card is easy peasy”….uhhhhh not saying that today lol!  This card has quite a few steps and parts but it’s actually a little easier than it appears and soooo worth the extra effort 🙂

The card front is on watercolor paper.  The first stamped image is the door in Archival Black, next step:  watercoloring in Early Espresso and Soft Suede.  The funky (I love this image sooooooo, soooo much!) gear, blueprint image is heat embossed randomly in White EP next.  It is drop in watercolored in Calypso Coral and Marina Mist.  Another fantastic effect are the splatters.  any splatter image will do, I think I used the one in Painter’s Palette.  Its stamped in Early Espresso first before the watercolor ink is dropped in, then again after the watercoloring is dry.  This technique gives you some images that are washed out and some images that are crisp.  The overall effect?  Delish!

The butterfly image is stamped in archival ink twice:  once on the card front in the location you want it to be and then a second time on watercolor paper scrap.  The second image is watercolored in Calypso Coral, Marina Mist and Island Indigo.  The butterfly is much more saturated in color to make it pop from the card.  Next, it is cut out and popped up on dimensionals with gold thread swirled underneath.  The last little details are the sweet, tiny banner at the top and the pearls scattered across the card front.
