My Favorite Things Guest - Fresh Cut Blooms...

Pink Fresh Studio Guest...

Good morning! Today I will be sharing a few projects using some Pink Fresh Studio products. They invited me to do some guest designing, and sent me a few of their products to try out. You can visit their blog for a little Q&A, if you'd like to check it out. I chose to work with the Sweet Lemonade and Lush Greenery stamps and dies, which I just love!

I had fun creating a few projects using these sets. They're outline images, so I got to pull out some coloring mediums and just spend some time coloring. 

For this first card, I used the Sweet Lemonade set and my set of Pastel Dreams watercolor palette (from Prima).

I used the wet-on-wet watercolor technique to paint the lemonade portion of the bottles. It's one of my favorite techniques because I love the way the colors blend together. I painted the rest of the bottle with aqua watercolor to look like glass. I made sure to add a line of "glass" along the bottom edge of the bottles to make them look more realistic. I stamped several citrus slices, strawberries, and leaves from the Sweet Lemonade set to cluster around the base of the bottles.

I wanted to create a really vibrant, juicy background for the bottles, so I sponged some Distress Oxide inks, and spritzed with water to give it a little texture. I finished it off with a sentiment from the Sweet Lemonade set, heat embossed with white powder.

My next card also uses the Sweet Lemonade set. I had so much fun coloring those bottles, that I wanted to try some more, this time with colored pencils. I used shades of orange to create some fizzy orange soda.

To create the bubbly texture to the bottle, I added some dots with the darkest orange colored pencil, and also some with a white gel pen. I did the same thing to the orange panel in the background.

The "awesome" sentiment is actually from the other set I chose to work with - Lush Greenery, but it worked perfectly for this card. It would make a great birthday card for a teen!

My last card uses the really pretty Lush Greenery set. I just love that border with all of those mixed greens. I pulled out my colored pencils and had fun bringing it to life.

I wanted to get a lot of variety of colors in the greenery border, so I used all kinds of shades, ranging from zingy yellow-greens, to softer gray greens. I really like how it turned out!

To finish it off, I sponged some Distress Oxide inks onto a panel of cardstock and misted it with water to add texture. Then I stamped one of the greenery borders from the set along the top and bottom and heat embossed it with gold powder. I also added a sentiment using the Lush Greenery stamps and dies. I also splattered some gold mist - I used some I had in my stash - Color Shine Gold Lame by Heidi Swapp (I didn't link it in the supplies because I couldn't find it anywhere in that gold color).

I hope you enjoyed seeing these projects today! I enjoyed working with the Pink Fresh Studio goodies and want to thank them for having me as their guest!
