Bright and Beautiful

Afternoon, it’s cold and grey in my part of the world so I’ve chosen a bright, warm make to share today.

 

 

Step By Step

1. Cut a piece of watercolour card to fit the card blank.

2. Put Distress inks, in red, orange and yellow, directly onto a non-stick craft mat. Spritzed the inks with water, laid my card stock down on the inks, twisting it slightly to blend the colours together.

3. Once the background was completed dry, inked up the solid flower head, from the Stamps By Me – Enjoy stamp set, using the three colours used for the background. Spritzed the stamp lightly before stamping on the background, repeated directly next to the first flower head.

4. Used the outline flower head, also from the Stamps By Me – Enjoy stamp set, using red Distress ink over the solid flower head. Repeated with black Generation INX. 

5. Stamped the sentiment, Stamps By Me – How Beautiful sentiment stamp, using black Generation INX.

6. Mounted onto gold mirri card and adhered to the card blank.

It’s Your Birthday

Afternoon, a late start because my fur baby is not feeling well. Nothing too serious but he’s feeling sorry for himself, he’s spent the morning sitting on my knee having snugs, it’s good job he’s not a big dog!

Sharing a little birthday card today, simple to make but I loved how this one turned out.

 

 

Step by Step

1. Created a master board using Dylusions paints and a brayer.

2. Trimmed master board to size, stamped the flower, from the Stamps By Me – Hooray stamp set, using Archival inks.

3. Used an Imagination Crafts stencil, black Archval ink and a blending tool to add the circles to the background.

4. Stamped the text, also from the Stamps By Me – Hooray stamp set, in black Archival ink. Inked the edges with Black Soot Distress ink and a blending tool.

5. Matted onto white card stock and adhered to a black card blank.
