Our guest designer for April was Maria Willis - and her work is just incredible. We loved seeing what she did with our Face the Sun set, and getting to know her better! You can see more of her beautiful creations at her site - Cardbomb and over on YouTube and Instagram.Hi! My name is Maria Willis and I’m from a small town in California. I’ve been a lover of arts and crafts and homemade things my whole life. In 2015 I was introduced to stamping and card making. I dove in headfirst and have never looked back. Since then I’ve a discovered a love for mixed media, exploring products in-depth to figure out all the ways I can use them, and making a big crafty mess! I’m so excited that I’m able to share the joy I get from crafting with you._____________________________________________________Maria's stunning loose watercolor with our Face the Sun set is a joy to behold, and her design echoes the sentiment, with the light falling onto the flower and the darker blue behind it. A masterpiece.
Again with watercolor, this time she did emboss resist, which makes the entire Face the Sun image just glow. The cheery colors are perfect for the encouraging sentiment.
Rainbows anyone? Using emboss resist and a dramatic black background, Maria's unexpected rainbow sunflower is such a happy composition!
So many different looks from one stamp! Thank you for being our guest, Maria - we are honored!
