Happy new year, everyone!
This is Dana here. I’m so thrilled to share my cards on this blog as Krumspring dream team!
Today, I made non traditional new year cards using happy colors and encouraging sentiments. Let’s get started!
To start, I die cut scalloped rectangle from watercolor paper. I did some masking to stamp the background except the scallop part.
I then stamped background image using watermark ink and heat embossed it with white embossing powder. After ink blending the background with distress inks, I splattered some water and white acrylic paint using mini mister and paint brush.
Next, I stamped toucan image 2 times onto the watercolor paper using Versafine Onyx black. I trimmed wing from one and glued it to other toucan. I colored toucan with Peerless watercolors. To give it a highlight, I used white gel pen.
For clover, I stamped it using distress inks 2 times and brushed image smoothly using waterbrush. I also added sparkles to the clover using Wink of stella brush.
I then white heat embossed the sentiment on the black card stock and cut it out with banner die.
To finish, I foam mounted all elements and embellished clear sequins.

For second card, I started by stamping geometry images using lots of dye inks onto the white card stock. Do you know ‘Greenery’ is the color of 2017 by Pantone? I used that color on my main hexagon image.
Other colors are inspired from Pantone 2017 spring colors, too. After inking, I stamped sentiments using Versafine Onyx black.
Lastly, I added various patterns using white gel pen to the geometry images. I love how them turned out. I then glued inked panel to the white card base.
