Altenew - Leaf Canopy


Another card featuring the beautiful images (and dies) from Altenew's Leaf Canopy stamp set.


This time I dusted off my Gansai Tambi paints and went for the most delicious turquoise colour in the box. 
I started by white heat embossing the outline image, then 'painted' each leaf with clean water before adding a tiny bit of turquoise paint and letting the colour move around.


After it had all dried, I die-cut the image, adhered it to my card base, added glittery highlights with a Wink of Stella clear pen and finished with a birthday sentiment.

Nice and simple.

Alcohol Inks - No 17


Allow me to introduce No 17.
I actually made it almost a year ago but I've never got round to sharing as I couldn't quite make out if I liked it or not. Anyway, fast forward a year and fresh eyes and it's finally grown on me.
So voila!

Bee Friendly


A flying visit today with a card using images from HobbyArt's 'Bee Friendly' stamp set, Distress Oxides and Deco foil.
Easy to make...I blended orange and yellow inks on a scrap of card, stamped my flower and fussy cut. I also fussy cut my bee & coloured with Promarkers. 
The honeycomb pattern is Deco foil, adhered with sticky embossing powder.
A subject close to my heart...looking after our precious bees.

Altenew - Beautiful Day


There's something quite special about Altenew's 'Beautiful Day' stamp set.
It's beyond beautiful.


I started by stamping the outline flower and leaf several times onto vellum with Versamark ink, then heat embossed with a glittery / white powder from Honeydoo Crafts (White Opal).


Lots of fussy-cutting later, I was ready to add a subtle pink watercolour wash, with a Zig Brush pen, to the flowers.


I literally drew a line of colour on each petal and then, with a fine wet brush, added a drop of water and let the colour wash. Easy and very satisfying.


Then it was a case of several hours pontificating over the layout, adding a couple of inked flowers (from the same set) directly on the card, and sticking it all down.


A few obligatory sequins strategically placed here n' there... et voila!
All done. Easy peasy lemon squeezy (except the sequin bit...lol)
