Brushos, Washi tape, Waterfront

A non sympathy waterfront card

Just to prove that this stamp set doesn’t have to just be for sympathy cards…

I again used brusho to stamp technique I had got from Understand Blue YouTube channel… seriously this is a very talented artist. I love her work. I now need to look at other stamps I can play with this technique for!

This time there was more water involved and I did use a wet brush to move the colour a little.

I added glitter washi tape to the card base and then under the sentiment to add some sparkle.

Entering this for the challenge at your next stamp using the colours as inspiration.

Happy crafting!

Brusho sympathy

This card is one I loved making until I had to turn it into a sympathy card.

I was watching YouTube videos and came across one using Brusho and the waterfront stamps and had to give it a try. Here is a link to the blog for the original artist and I encourage you to check out her YouTube channel too. She is amazing.

I love this technique and camt wait try it again… but hopefully next time I don’t have to then turn it into a sympathy card.

Happy crafting!

Moon and Sun themed ATCs

I’ve found a new fb group who do mixed media ATC swaps and a few other challenges and decided to join in with the moon/Sun atc swap… here are my contributions using gelli print scraps to create my backgrounds for my little landscapes using the fab Waterfront stamps.

This first one I spotted a lake with the reflections and ripples in the texture of the paint. I ripped it to a smaller size and then added stamping of the mountains trees and the moon (including the reflection).

The second one was an inky gell print had a sun with beams of light radiating so it just needed some trees and mountains and some sand to finish off… and a simple mount of the white card ATC.

Happy crafting!

Waterfront sympathy

I hate that I had to make this card. The news that someone has passed away always knocks me. And in this case the world has lost a young, creative, fun soul. I feel for her parents and of course all her family. Rest in peace Lorna. 

I decided to make a muted card with a scene using these amazing Waterfront stamps from Stampin Up.  I have seen so many cards using these on Pinterest and can’t wait to make some different scenes using them. 

I used a mixture of grey inks, mainly distress inks but also added in weathered wood for a touch of blue. I then added some light shading to the edges and to catch the texture of the cardstock with a clarity brush.  The sentiment was a magazine freebie stamp.

I kept the card simple with a black mount for the image and then a linen cardstock card blank.

Happy crafting!
