Hobby Art  " Wings Challenge "

Products used in the making of this card

Hobby Arts Floral Bird House set
Versafine Onyx Ink Pad
Distress Inks 
Watercolour Card

Firstly I sprinkled a mix of brusho's onto the watercolour card and misted with water. Leave to dry or blot with tissue and dry off with heat gun.

Stamp Birdhouse and butterflies and using just a dot of inks ( I used Mermaid Lagoon, Abandoned Coral and Fossilized Amber ) and water mix colours to the shade you like and paint as normal. 

I then decided I would like a border so used the small individual stamp from the set and stamped randomly round the edge and off the edge to form the border. 

Matt and Layer in the usual way. 

Thank you for Looking

2 Chocolate Baroque Cards

2 Chocolate Baroque Cards

Both cards were made using Distress ink pads although the 2nd it a lot brighter it is purely the amount of ink applied as the same inks were used in both pieces.

I was entering these into the Chocolate Baroque Challenge but have had difficulty accessing it. Maybe I will try on another occasion. 

Thank you for looking

Clarity Challenge #26

The Wee Folk

Using The Wee Folk Elves and Fairies,
I stamped onto shrink plastic and cut out close to the stamped image then using a heat gun carefully shrank them in turn, 

Using theuva card I stamped and embossed the treehouse, masked it off to colour and make a scene.

I coloured the treehouse with wink of stella brush pens, stuck all the shrink plastic onto the house and around the toadstools. To add a little extra texture I used some shrink plastic and stickles. 

To finish I stamped and embossed the sentiment. 

Thank you for looking

Crafty Individuals Stamp meets 
Bleeding Art Tissues 

Products used to make this card include : 

CI - 385 Crafty Individuals Stamp
Versafine Onyx Black Ink Pad
Wink Of Stella Brushes White and Clear
Uni - Ball Signo Sparkling pens
Tim Holtz idea- ology sentiments
Purple backing card
Nuvo Crystal Drops Raspberry Pink 
Bleeding Art Tissue 
Square 5 x 5 Card
Stamping Card 
Black Micron Pen .005

First things first ... cut your bleeding tissue to the shape and size of your choice I chose 2" hexagons. 
I misted the card first and then laid the colours of choice randomly on the card it was a lot larger than the finished size as that way you can pick an area you are happy with as this is not a guaranteed solid finish, which personally I like as it adds texture. Wet the tissue again once in place either with a mister or brush and water. Leave to dry.

Once dry lift tissues, either keep these for another project ( they will not be as bright and may be tainted where other colours have bled into them ) or put straight in the bin, do not leave them anywhere that they can stain something else as they really do colour most things. 

Take the Versafine Onyx and ink up the stamp and place this in the area of your choice. Let dry or help it along with a heat gun. 

Take the sparkling signo pens and enhance the ink lines with the colours of choice. Then colour the flowers using the Wink of Stella brush pens. 

Next ' frame ' your stamped image with the micron pen using squiggly lines, go round twice.

Cut and mount backing card and stamped topper onto the card blank. 

To finish I took some of the Tim Holtz  sentiment stickers coloured them with distress inks from my stash but anything will do. Then I added the Nuvo Crystal Drops as the final finishing touch.
