I’ve been a bit poorly so bought myself a crafting magazine kit to cheer myself up and decided to play with it and see what I came up with to try and distract myself from feeling ill.
It actually took me hours to make these five cards as I had to take breaks and my brain wasn’t exactly working well but chuffed with the final results.
The kit included an embossing folder, stamps, dies and a stencil plus lots of papers. I ended up playing with brushos, modelling paste, blending, stampin blends alcohol pens and had fun.
So this first one was a panel of white, embossed, ink blended and splattered and then added the ribbon and some white die cuts. Love the champagne glimmer ink splatters and centre to the flowers.
The second one took me a bit of thinking on how to use the poinsettia flowers I had coloured with brusho but I spotted the dl card blank and figured it was perfect for a panel of the paper and then the flowers with the white die cut sentiment.
This one took a while to do colouring in all the embossing.. then added gems, pearl accents and the die cut sentiment onto the embossed sentiment.
And this one using the brusho trees … I kept it quite simple in design adding all the lovely silver decorations to the tree and the sentiment as the “trunk”. Entering this into the challenge at TIME OUT CHALLENGES
And it might just be the favourite of the set!
The background panel has the modelling paste and then the images were die cut from a couple of brusho panels I painted. That silver sentiment just finishes it off perfectly!
An odd selection of cards but I enjoyed all the playing with the mixed media.
What do you think? Which is your favourite? Mine is definitely the last one and then the tall slim card with those brusho poinsettia.
