Crazy Crafters Blog Hop with our special guest Frenchie Martin




It's not every day that you get to blog hop with someone you have been admiring for what seems like forever. That is, unless you are in the Crazy Crafter team, then you get to join forces with some amazingly talented people every month!

This month we have the privilege to be hopping with Frenchie Martin. We are CASEing (Copy And Selectively Edit) any project that she created. We hope you find great inspiration from the projects.
 
You may just be starting the blog hop here at my blog - Rosalie Desmond or may have come from the person previous to me.  Be sure to click on the person listed under me further down the page to continue your journey on this blog hop.


When selecting which project I was going to CASE, I kept going back to the same project - Watercolour Joseph Coat. This is Frenchie's card that I CASEd.



For more information about this technique please check out Frenchie's blog.

I don't remember seeing this technique before and just loved the look. So I took this opportunity to give it a go. I used a slightly different take on Frenchie's project - I sponged my colours before I embossed rather than water colouring.

This first card uses the Flourishing Phrases stamp set. I sponged using Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight and Emerald Envy, then clear embossed the images and covered the paper in Dapper Denim.






I loved the look of this technique so much that I just had to try it with different stamp sets. This time I used the Vintage Leaves set. Sponged in Melon Mambo, Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight, Real Red, Emerald Envy, then clear embossed the images and covered the paper in Dapper Denim.



This is my third card, this time using the Sheltering Tree Stamp Set. I sponged in Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight and Real Red. Clear embossed the images over the sponging and covered the paper in Dapper Denim.






Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy the remainder of the blog hop,

    1. I loved the leave one as well. Next time I might do some leaves on some scraps and then cut them out. I love the idea of rainbow leaves in 3D.

    1. Thank you for the lovely comment. I tried different colour matting, but kept coming back to the daffodil delight. Other colours worked but the yellow made it pop.
