An extra post this week to show you a few cards I was working on yesterday. They brightened up my day! Tim Holtz dog stamps, watercoloured with distress inks.Til next time, stay safe..
I have had great fun this week colouring the stamped images from a stamp set by Stampin Up called back on Your Feet, and then fussy cutting the images and turning them into cards. The cards on left were coloured with watercolours and the cards on the right were done with Copic colours. The papers were bits and pieces from lots of different companies. I have a box of 6″ pads and I just flipped through these to find what I wanted to use. The die cut shapes were foam mounted on to the card fronts to give a bit of dimension. As well as playing with this stamp set this week I have been preparing some lessons, ready for August when Helens classes will start! Til next time….
Today’s two cards focus on a stamp from Stampin Up called Lovely lattice. The top card has an embossed layer – the same Stampin up embossing folder as the card on the previous post ( Lace Dynamic Embossing folder) and I stamped the Lovely Lattice stamp on watercolour paper and coloured it with an aquabrush and re-inkers. For the lower card I stamped onto watercolour paper with versamark ink, and heat embossed with white embossing powder. Again I coloured with an aquabrush and re-inkers, also painting a very light wash over the background. If you want to know more about watercolouring with re-inkers check out my little clip on my you-tube channel – the link is over there on the right hand side of the page! I have been a bit time poor over the last couple of years, but I am retiring at the end of this week so will have more time to focus on my blog, and you-tube channel – exciting times!! til tomorrow…
i have been on a mission to make some little girl cards, and I found this stamp stashed away – it came off the front of a magazine, but its very good quality, and I thought it was quite cute! I coloured her with tim holtz distress markers and an aqua brush ( not confident enough to use a paint brush), and the rest of the products – spellbinders timeless rectangle die,kaisercraft paper and mini flowers, martha stewart leaf punch,and stampin up cardstock and ribbon. For those of you intersted , I have done a you-tube video testing out the new spellbinder tool for Paper Flourish ( yes I get to play with new products and let you all know what I think – best job ever!!)You can see it by going to http://www.paperflourish.com.au and clicking on the blog button! til tomorrow….
