I created a wintery tag for this month’s swap…
I added bookprint to the tag, then some stencilling using white acrylic paint. I also added more stencilling using texture paste. This created a nice resist for the shimmer watercolour paint I added.
Then I added stamping using both distress inks and archival. Next more stamping using versamark and embossing powder to add even more texture to the background and also for the focal image which I stamped onto white card and cut out.
I love the wintery feel of this tag. For the finishing touch I added the ribbon and twine by stapling it with coloured staples.
I also defined the edges with darker ink to give it more depth.
Following on from the inchies I made and shared a couple of days ago I also made a sunflower ATC using the rest of the embellishments from the stash…
I added them to a distress oxide background that I had added some gorgeous grunge stamping. I also added a printed sentiment and some sequins.
The second flower based ATC I made was very different in style. This one I stamped and watercoloured using watercolour pencils and then embossed the sentiment on top.
A very simple but pretty ATC.
Love how different they both are.
Two cards today as I kept them quite simple for the theme of snowman as per the challenge at this week’s CHNC blog.
Stamping and watercolouring with pencils and then some pretty papers someone kindly gifted me in a swap.
Sometimes this sort of simple colouring is all that is needed.
So my mum is in Spain and I forgot to post her card ahead of time … oops!
So will be sending it in with their Easter card and Anniversary card… at least it will be in time for Spanish mothering Sunday which is in May!
I am looking forward to a nice meal out with the hubby and most importantly the child to eat tapas at a local Spanish restaurant. Yum!I actually kept the card really simple with a piece of pretty paper, yellow die cut and some shiny copper cardstock.
Onto this I added a butterfly which I embossed and then added some pearlescent watercolour to give it shine!Finally lots of gems!
