Welcome to another Featured Artist/Designer Spotlight. Today we’re thrilled to welcome Marcie Sharp. Before we show you Marcie’s project, let’s get to know her a little bit more…
I am so thrilled to be featured today on Paper Crafter’s Library! I live in a rural town in Ontario, Canada, near the Michigan border, in the same area where I grew up so there’s lots of family and friends nearby. My current role is a stay-at-home momma to my 2 adorable kiddos. I’m excitable and happy by nature- I love to look at the positive side of life. I’m primarily a card maker that enjoys every minute I get to spend in my small crafting ‘corner’. Currently I work with CAS-ual Fridays Stamps and Butterfly Reflections, Ink. There’s not a particular designing style/category I think I fall into, but I gravitate to clean and simple designs. That being said, some of my own favourite creations have been full of layers and techniques! If I’m not cardmaking then I am reading, geocaching with my family, and taking any opportunity I can to visit with my friends! I often lose my voice due to excessive talking. 🙂
I Thank My Lucky Stars
For my card today I started with a white cardstock base and used an ink blending tool to cover it with Surf Blue, Blue Violet and Bloomsberry inks. Then I flicked some water droplets across the front for a subtle splattered look. Once dry, I stamped the stars and sentiment in black. I stamped the sentiment again slightly offset in Versamark ink and embossed it in white. The final touch was flicking on some watered down white ink. The end result is a one layer, colourful card perfect to send to a friend!
I loved the final product so much that I created two more cards in various colours using the same steps.
Cardstock: (white) Papertrey Ink
Ink: (Black Licorice) My Favorite Things; (Blue Violet, Surf Blue) Simon Says Stamp; (Bloomsberry) WPlus9; (Unicorn White) Hero Arts
