Blog Hop Projects

All this week, Creative Imaginations and Memory Box will be hosting a joint blog hop. Both Design Teams have created lots of technique based projects using luminarte and memory box's stamps. There will be giveaways each day, so stop by and check it out!

I created projects using 2 different types of papers along with Memory Box Stamps to show you the varied looks you can get using Luminarte.

For this birthday set, I created my own patterned paper by stamping with embossing ink onto cardstock and then heat embossing with clear embossing powder. I dipped a paint brush into Ginger Peach Radiant Rain Shimmering Mist and painted (instead of spraying) over the stamped images. I dabbed a paper towel over the embossed images to pick up the excess mist and the result is a lovely stark contrast between the background color and the embossed flowers.

I also created matching patterned tissue paper by simply stamping with ink onto the paper.

used the same resist technique on this card. This time, I used Mallard Green, Burnt Umber, and Yellow Rose twinkling H2Os on Glossy Paper and the result is a stunning watercolor look.

See how the yellow varies at the top of the card? That's actually the same color. I just diluted the paint with more water to give the lighter effect. Pretty cool, huh?

Thanks for stopping by today!
