Creating for Creativation | Picket Fence Studios January Release

Have you ever had something happen, that, at the time, you had no idea the impact that it would have?  A few months ago, I was asked to do a few ink blended panels, using the Life Changing Blender Brushes from Picket Fence Studios.  Being someone who likes to push myself, I decided to see just how far I could go, creating with the two brushes I had.  I created a few backgrounds, and snapped a photo of each, just so I had reference about what ink colors I had used for the panel.  No pretty photos - just a quick snap with my cell phone.  

(ETA: I've had many questions about how I did the Blended Backgrounds.  I created another Under the Sea background, and made a video, showing you how I achieved these Blending Brush Paintings.  I hope this helps those who wanted to know how to begin creating backgrounds like these.) 

And off the backgrounds went.  Suddenly, a few days later, I was creating more cards for display at Creativation, which was super exciting. I sent those off just weeks ago, and suddenly found that i was GOING to Phoenix for the show for the first time!  It was a whirlwind and so exciting!

I shared some photos on my Instagram stories (see the "Creativation" tab in the Hightlights), but I wanted to pop in today, and share the card projects that I made to be part of the Picket Fence Studios booth.  There are a lot of photos on this post, and it would be difficult to give full directions for so many cards, so I have linked the stamp sets below each photo, and included what coloring mediums used on those cards that have coloring.  All of the stamp and dies will also be listed and linked at the bottom of the post.

And now I will stop rambling, so you can see the pretty photos!
