For Christmas I gave my parents and my auntie a calendar I had made with a postcard sized piece of art on each month… so today I am sharing their July artwork.
I wanted to use this fab rainbow stencil with black embossing paste to create a funky panel.
Once it was dry I added the colour using stampin up inks and a waterbrush and made sure I also splattered each colour on too.
I finished with some doodling and the month stamp white heat embossed onto black cardstock.
Love this stencil… makes such a funky rainbow!
Gosh I really haven’t been blogging regularly… just not been feeling well enough to sit and craft and so out of the habit I guess. Thankful I have some DT things that make me get my creative time in and also that some of them I have prepped ahead of time! This is one of those kind of posts…
This week the theme Hazel has set us at CHNC is to use washi tape so I kept my card really simple and let the sparkly washi tape do all the work!
I chose the three colours of sparkly washi I had and laid them down in strips. Then I added the First edition die cut wreath which I layered up 3 times to give it dimension.
Then I added the Tim Holtz sticker sentiment onto a strip of red cardstock and called the whole thing done! Sometimes simplicity is best!
Hello! Have another set of coins to share today where I used the time theme.
This time some distress ink backgrounds which I then added some glass bead gel through a stencil. I then added the stamped image and then added a stamped word.
Some fun dimension for these.
Another swap to share… this time some inchies using the following colour palette…
The colour palette reminded me of a sunflower against blue skies.
Here is what I made…
I used blue ink to smoosh the watercolor the inchies in and then stamped using the dark brown archival ink and the Hardwood stamp.
I then added the spotty washi to three of the inchies and strips of the yellow washi to two of the inchies. Into the strips I added the words sun flower.
Then I inked the edge of each inchie and added an embellishment sunflower from the stash. I then arranged them onto the yellow cardstock.
Love this bright and beautiful selection of inchies.
Here is the tag I made for this month’s swap at UK stampers forum.
I started with a gelli printed tag and added tissue wrap and then leftover bits from the gelli printed ATCs I made last month.
This made a colourful and patterned start!
I added some definition using Inktense pencils and a stamped image from Jofy which I embossed.
I then added colour into the image using the Inktense pencils.
I stamped the butterflies onto thick cardstock and watercoloured them using the Inktense pencils.
Next I added the butterflies onto the tag and added Wink of Stella to them to make them shimmer.
I added more white using a gel pen and white embossing for the sentiment.
Added some white ribbon and that’s the tag done.
