I am almost finished scrapbooking all of these Disney character greeting pictures (I think)....yeah! So, for this picture I went with Liz Chidester's sketch #140. I also found inspiration from the color combination at For Your Inspiration - loved the blue and purple combination!
So here are some closeups of the accents. This title uses the new stamp set Sweet Cake. I colored the stamp with my Pool Party, Early Espresso, Wisteria Wonder, and Calypso Coral Stampin' Write markers. I matted the image on Pool Party paper and went back and added some Pool Party and Wisteria Wonder pieces on top. I also added Dazzling Diamonds to the cupcake and heart as well as Dazzling Details to the thin border around the image.
So, here I loved the fact that my daughter always enjoyed chatting with the characters, so I used up one of these old rub-ons. I didn't want to just put the rub-on right onto the diecut, so I decided that I would rub the sentiment on and then sponge over this with Pool Party and Wisteria Wonder ink and let the rub-on resist the ink.

Here's a card I made using the same type of rub-on effect. This card uses the new stamp set Take Heart. I love the silhouette stamp and decided to use a scrap of Pool Party to stamp the image. I stamped the image in Basic Grey and took sponge daubers to sponge Old Olive and Island Indigo ink on areas of the image.
Here's a closeup of the rub-on resist on this image. Instead of just sponging over the rub-on, I decided to stamp on top of the image. Since I used a stamped image, I blotted the rub-on with a Kleenex gently so I wouldn't smear the stamped image.
Here is the inside of the card. I used the same technique as the scrapbook page. I stamped the image in Basic Grey, rubbed the sentiment on, and then sponged Island Indigo over the image.

And, finally, here is the spritzed rub-on resist. I watercolored an image from the new Apothecary Art stamp set and spritzed it with Blushing Bride Smooch Spritz. I cut that image as well as a frame out with the Framelits Labels die cuts. Finally, I took an old rub-on and spritzed it with Blushing Bride smooch spritz. I blotted that with a Kleenex and cut it out to pop up above the image. I accented very simply with some Riding Hood Red pleated ribbon and a safety pin with Pear Pizzazz seam binding ribbon.
Quick tip: Do NOT attempt to pierce a hole in your watercolor paper for the safety pin....I threw my original pin away! The watercolor paper is too heavy! Just use a glue dot! They are kind of like duct tape...you can't live without them!
