Black and White

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAA very simple stamped A5 card in monochrome. I can’t remenber whose stamp it is as I’ve had it a while. It is one of my favourite’s as I love trees in all forms, especially trees without any leaves on – I love their unusual shapes and can spend many hours walking in the woods in Autumn and Winter when all the trees are bare. The simplicity of this card reflects the raw and natural state of the trees in winter. I hope you like it x

Baubles so bright

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAJust wanted to share with you one of the samples I made for the recent Kanban shows on Create and Craft tv. This is an 8 x 8 card using one of the new Christmas Stencils. I used 2 shades of Memento Dye ink – Bahama Blue and Pear Tart and brushed with a little Pale Gold Cosmic Shimmer Mica powder whilst the inks were still a little wet. I mounted the image on 3d foam pads after I had mat and layered with Turquoise card and lime green waffle card. Hope you like it x

Back in 5 Minutes

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAA 6 x 6 card using some JOFY stamps on some watered Distress Ink background. I’ve painted in the flowers with Salty Ocean and Mustard Seed distress inks using a water brush. The sentiment is from Indigo Blu – only I think it would be more apt for me to say – “out of my mind …. never coming back”. I edged the topper with Salty Ocean distress ink and then I’ve mounted the topper up on mats and layers of Turquoise blue and basket weave yellow.. Thank you for taking the time to look and I hope you like it x

Flying High

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAAn MDF door hanger painted with blue acrylic paint and decorated with pearlescent texture paste using one of Aspire Crafts kite stencils and the bunting stencil. The pearlescent texture paste has been coloured with a little dark green acrylic paint and had some small glass micro beads to give it a further point of difference. I think it works very well. I’ve added the name “BEN” using some of the Aspire Crafts Dekromounts, which have been left white for contrast. Hope you like it x

Pink Roses, Blue Butterflies

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAA 6 x 6 tent card made using the Graphic 45 “Botanical Tea” Collection. I’ve distressed it a little by roughing round the edges as this collection can be used to make both very contemporary or vintage style cards. The colours in this collection are lovely and there is a lot of different subjects within the collection to make many different types and styles of card. I added a little Stickles to the rose on the topper for a bit of sparkle. Hope you like it x

It’s a New Day

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAAn A5 card to cheer us up during this awful August weather. I’ve used a Wendy Vechi – Studio 490 stamp, stamped with Seedless Preserve and Picked Raspberry Distress inks onto a Distress Ink watered background. I’ve used fuschia pink and white waffle weave to mat and layer and mount the stamped topper on. It gives it a lovely clean and crisp look, which I like as it shows off the stamping better. Hope you like it and hopefully it will cheer your day now the sunshine has disappeared x
