Stampin Up Best of Cluck Cards

Hi Everyone!! I worked on these two cards today using the Retired Stampin Up "Best of Cluck" stamp set. The color combos were inspired by my designer papers that were in my scrap pile which, by the way, I have a lot of.

I colored image using SU Markers on watercolor paper then took my SU "Color Spritzer Too" and sprayed dots all over the image. Unfortunately, the paper was still a little wet so the spots ended up dispersing a bit and became larger than I wanted but that's okay. I like the end results anyway.

Here is a closer look at the image. Can you see the splotches. The Color Spritzer's sprays typically smaller dots but if your paper is wet then it will end up larger.

Card Details:
Stamps: SU Best of Cluck
Papers: SU More Mustard, DCWV designer paper
Ink: SU Markers, Sakura Souffle Opaque pen
Accessories: Ribbon and buttons (unknown), Marvy 2 1/2 circle and 3" scallop punch.








Here is the other card. Again, I watercolored the image using SU markers. With the egg, I created the dots using Sakura "Metallic" gel pens. I also used SU "Color Spritzer Tool" on the image but as you can see the splotches or dots are smaller because the paper was dry when I sprayed it.


You can't really see it in the image but I added micro beads on to the Prima flowers. Again, I used a designer paper from my scrap pile!

Card Details:


Stamps: SU Best of Cluck
Paper: SU Lavendar Lace, Brilliant Blue
Ink: SU Markers, Sakura "Matallic" Gel pen, SU Lavendar Lace
Accessories: Swirl Clips (Office Depot), Organdy ribbon, Primas, Micro Beads (unknown)
