Today, I have something a little different from the usual handmade cards that I make. I did not use a Cricut cut, but did use my Cricut Explore. How in the world is that possible? Let me explain.
The Cricut Explore has a great pen feature and one of the newer Anna Griffin cartridges (Anna Griffin Garden Cards and Embellishments) has a content that are meant just for the pen feature. I was able to have my machine draw this flower image and then color it in as if it were a stamp! Pretty cool, right!
I had the machine draw the flower onto watercolor paper. Then, I colored the image with watercolor pencils. This is the first time I have ever done anything like that on this kind of scale, but I had a good time doing it. Also, the Cricut pen used help up nicely with the water.
The sentiment is stamped in Versa Mark and then heat embossed using gold embossing powder. I think the little touch of gold on the outside and inside add just that little bit extra. The stamp itself can be yours for free (along with two other stamp sets) if you purchase $150 from me this month. It will be gone forever after March 31st.
