Jenine’s Mindful Art Guest Project: Love



Hi everyone, today I would like to share this fun card project with you all! Let’s get started!



Step 1:

To get my card project started I stamped a couple of the images from the JMA-NA-STAMP19 and JMA-ES-STAMP139 stamp sets onto Bristol Smooth Surface Paper using black ink and I heat embossed directly afterwards using clear embossing powder. This way my lines stay black and crisp no matter how much water you add. To get the best results you can use an anti-static powder tool before stamping the image.


Now I can colour the images using my JMA Light Markers in combination with my water brush. I used the following colours: Old Red, Sap Green, Green Gray 9 and Pine Forest. After the colouring is done and dry I added back in some highlights using a white gel pen. And I fussy cut the images leaving a small border.



Step 2:

Next I die cut a circle shape from one of the design papers from the JMA-NA-PP01 paper pad using the JMA-ES-CD140 Circle Ornament Frames die set and I created my lay out using the stamped and coloured images I created in the previous step.



Step 3:

Using one of the Rub-On-Transfers from the JMA-WYS-RUB02 transfer set I created my text on the circle element.



Step 4:

Time to work on my background panel: I die cut a square panel, from white linen textured card stock, one size smaller than my card base and stamped some of the images from the JMA-WYS-STAMP211 stamp set onto the panel. I also created splatters using a Coliro Pearl Colour in Rose using a brush (one of the splatters was really large so I decided to salvage the panel and not create another one). To cover up this large splatter I die cut a butterfly using matching pink card stock and the STENCILJMA05 die set.



Step 5:

Now I can add my project together: I adhered the square background panel onto a craft coloured card base using liquid glue. On top I adhered the circle shape and the coloured elements using one millimetre thick foam tape. And to finish the project I now only have to adhere the butterfly using Ranger Medium Matte from the small bottle and I added some Stickles in the colour Star Dust onto the body of the butterfly and let that dry.

And that is it for today’s card project! I wish you a creative day!
