Joy Clair’s March Blog Hop

March 4, 2016


Welcome to the Joy Clair March Release Blog Hop! The design team has been working hard creating a variety of projects that are sure to spark your creative juices! You should be arriving from the talented Donna’s blog. If you happened to join the hop in the middle, please start at the Joy Clair blog!

Joy Clair’s March release contains four everyday stamp sets and four stamp sets from their bible journaling line, Color by Faith!

The celebrate card was created using Joy Clair’s Spring Flowers stamp set.  I decided not to use the flowers but the stamps for the center of the flowers to create my project.  Last year, Bokeh was all the rage and I wanted to try the technique but never got around to it, so I decided to try it here.  I airbrushed the background with Copic  marker R29 and Y19 before putting down the circles.  The sentiment was cut using my silhouette and I placed a few gem stones around just for a little sparkle.


Our Father


The second card was created using the stamp set Letter to God.  I airbushed the background on some glossy cardstock and then spritzed it with alcohol.  Once it was dry I used Versafine black ink to stamp the names.  The praying hands are from the January stamp set titled God’s Love.  They were stamped with Desert Sand memento ink and colored with copic markers E0000, E000, E00, E11, B21, B23, and B24.

    I like your Celebrate! carads’s mixture of orange and pink. The tones were subtle but very cheerful. Did you stamp or watercolor you worship card? The background coloration is lovely.

      Thank you DK for hopping along. The background on the worship card was created by airbrushing Copic marker on some glossy cardstock and then spritzing with alcohol.

      Oh, so that is why it is so vibrant and well blended! By any chance, did you use the Craftwell’s eBrush for your airbrushing?

        I used a mini air compressor that I picked up from my local harbor freight along with the ABS kit from Copic.
