Watercolouring

The card below was inspired by StamperSharon from SCS.  I think Sharon coloured hers with a different medium to mine, but I’ve used the Watercolour Wonder Crayons, which also happens to be part of the July Promotion for this month. [photopress:IMG_3197.JPG,full,pp_empty] The colours are mainly Always Artichoke, Bravo Burgundy and papers from the Recollections range. …

Lovely as a Tree

Yay!! New Rubba to play with.  I’ve been looking for something more masculine now that I’ve parted with Balmy Breezes *sob*.  I’d seen lots of stunning cards made with Lovely as a Tree, so it was time to lash out (and YES Marelle I bought them!  😉  ) [photopress:IMG_3180.JPG,full,pp_empty] This first one is a CASE,…

More Blossoms Abound

Another card inspired by Michelle Laycock.  Still cant quite get her look, but I try! [photopress:IMG_3177.JPG,full,pp_empty] Colours are Mellow Moss, Perfect Plum, Elegant Eggplant and Chocolate Chip.  I’ve done some ‘thumping’ on the top layer of the blossoms.  I inked up in Perfect Plum and then thumped (like drumming) an Elegant Eggplant marker ontop, and…

Blossoms Abound

This is one of two cards that were inspired by Michelle Laycock (a US demonstrator)  I cannot for the life of me work out how she got her card looking so great, but I tried. LOL [photopress:IMG_3174.JPG,full,pp_empty] The colours are Rose Red, Regal Rose, Mellow Moss, Chocolate Chip, Sarahra Sand and Whisper White.  Silly me…

Be Happy

I’ve been very slack in photographing my cards, so in the next couple of days, i’ll have a few to upload 🙂 This first one has been cased so many times, so I thought I would too! [photopress:IMG_3176.JPG,full,pp_empty] Very simple on materials, just Whisper White and Cranberry Crisp.  The background layer has been run through…

Stamps on Ebay

I’ve made a ruthless business decision and have listed all my stamp sets that are now retired *GULP*  Some of them my favourites. I’ve also got the Ageless Adornment set up for grabs, I had cards published in S&P (polished stone) using this set.  This set isn’t available from Australia, and is now retired in…

Artfully Asian

Okay, this card didnt really turn out the way I had envisioned it to.  Is that spelling right?  ANYWAY, I dont mind how it turned out, but will have to have another go at getting it the way I wanted. [photopress:IMG_3158.JPG,full,pp_empty] The colours were from the Elite Challenges second colour challenge.  They were Chocolate Chip,…

Bodacious Bouquet

This stamp set arrived at my house yesterday morning, so what better stamp set to teach an embossing workshop than with Bodacious Bouquet. [photopress:IMG_3157.JPG,full,pp_empty] To be able to emboss dye ink, I’ve first stamped in Versamark, then into the dye inkpad.  This is the first time I’ve done it and I was happy with the…

Be Happy

This card is based on another I’ve seen (I’m sorry I’ve forgotten where) I’ve changed the colours and embellishments. [photopress:IMG_3134.JPG,full,pp_empty] The colours are Pretty in Pink, Regal Rose and Taken with Teal.  The orginal card had a button stitched onto the flower, but as I dont have any I’ve stamped a solid circle and then…

Sassy Stems

This card was inspired by Trudee Sauer.  I’m back to teaching full cards at Linc n Learn so there will probably be a reasonable amount of inspired based cards on here, sometimes it’s just too much to create on your own. [photopress:IMG_3135.JPG,full,pp_empty] The colours are Cranberry Crisp, Mellow Moss and Not Quite Navy.  The brads are…

Touch of Nature

This card is for the Sketch Challenge on the Elite Challenges site.  I set these challenges, so thought it was time for me to make one.  The sketch comes from www.scrapbook.com [photopress:IMG_3056.JPG,full,pp_empty] Yes I have used these colours before here and here, the colour wheel chose them again. I’ve coloured using an aquapen and watercolour paper
