Wow with Watercolour class

Hi

Tonight friends will be gathering at mine for a crafting session where the theme I chose was watercolour!   Now given I am not an art teacher nor do I know how to watercolour in the way you might be thinking…. I instead chose to add colour in a watery way… or use stamps designed to give a water colour appearance. 

So here is what I have got prepped… 

Watercolour wings with brushos and some embossing. 

Watercolour words with some inky circles using a gelli plate.

Watercolour wash background stamp with a silhouette.

And finally… 

A scrapbook page just for a change. Using the gelli plate to add the inky large circles and the circles from Happy Celebrations set which I applied ink to using the Stampin Write markers to keep with the sketchy look. 

Hopefully we will get through these projects in no time at all… or at least get most of them done! Regardless I am sure we will have fun! 

Happy crafting!

Tag swap with layering the love

I made this tag using some leftover distress oxides from other projects and stamping using the Happy Celebrations set. 

I then used timeless textures too and the Layering the Love for the main sentiment. I then added dragonflies from the awesomely artistic set.

I am so in love with Distress Oxides and how they layer. So much fun! 

Happy crafting!

I made a card… whoop!

Ok so the title of the post is a little uninspired… but given how I still feel pretty grotty it is the best I can do! 

I managed a while in the craft room though and made a card. I had no plan and just set my camera to record and this is what I came up with… 

Loving the marbled background (so elegant) and the ombre Happy and then the shimmery die cut dragonfly.  Such fun! 

Enjoy watching my jabbering on video here! 

Happy crafting!

Hi there… I have two atcs to share that I made for a swap using the fab Serene Silhouettes stamps and the Happy Celebrations stamps to make some fun backgrounds.

I videoed making them here… So check out the process video. 

And now for some closeups…

I love those stamps for adding some fun colour splashes in the background.

Happy crafting!

Burlap, Distress oxide ink, Gelli Plate, Happy Celebrations

Gelli plate burlap

Some of the practice sessions for designing cards for classes included this card which I wasn’t 100% happy with for the class but still liked the result of. 

I used the gelli plate to add the distress oxide colour and the stamping of the burlap stamp and then added the burlap to the background of the card too. I also added some other colour with the Timeless Textures stamps.

I then used the fabulous Happy Celebrations stamps to finish it off. 

Happy crafting!

Hello there… 

Today I have a card to share that is similar to one I shared a couple of weeks ago … 

I changed it up a little and also stuck to the Happy Celebrations stamp set. I used more delicate colours of Soft Sky and Pool Party. 

I kept it very simple in terms of the card and added no embellishments. I think maybe a gem or three wouldn’t go amiss but think that sometimes less is more! 

Happy crafting!
