Make a wish...

Here Iam with my DT card for My Mum's Craft Shop....I forgot to schedule this morning!

Today's card has been made using MFT - make a wish stamps but unfortunately are out of stock but will be back in soon.

First I white embossed one of the sentiments from the set and then I brushed some colour over the background and then spritzed with water to give it a bit of texture. I stamped the candles into watercolour ink and then stamped onto watercolour card and then once dry I cut them out.

I added some sticky fixers and the layered the candles onto the card.

I distressed the edges of the card and layered it onto some black card.

Pop back for some more inspiration from the team.

Some pretty flowers...

Hi everybody, hope you are all well!

So today I decided to do a bit of watercolouring...I think I love these stamps and I think I love watercolouring!! This is so easy to do and you don't have to be great at colouring...Ijust love the effect, it's fab!

First, here's a wee close up...

So first I cut a piece of watercolour card and then white embossed the flowers, I actually had to mask them so I could overlap...that actually took me longer to cut and mask than it did to colour!

Edited: forgot to say the stgamps are from Tim holtz Flower Garden set.

Then I started colouring with my watercolour pens, starting with the lightest to darkest and just gradually adding colour until I got the shade I wanted.

I added a sentiment and some sequins to finish.

Snuggle Bunnies

Hi all....hope you are enjoying the's been really fab!

So here's my DT card for MMCS...better late than never!

When I spotted these cute little stamps over in the My Mum's Craft Shop store I just had to buy them...aren't they so cute??

The stamp set is from MFT and is called Snuggle Bunnies but unfortunately are out of stock but will be back in soon.

I stamped this image with black archival ink and then watercoloured using my Spectrum Noir Aquablend pencils, I didn't actually use that many colours, just kept it simple.

I die cut the panel using the MFT Stitched Cover up die and layered it on top of the image, I made the bottom section into a shaker card just for something a bit different.

Spectrum Noir August Challenge - Anything Goes

Hi everybody...have you seen the challenge over on the Spectrum Noir Facebook page??

This month's theme is "anything goes" now easy is that??  All you have to do is use some of the Spectrum Noir products.

The stamps I have used for this card are from Tim Holtz...they are quite cool!!

I stamped the image with a versamark pad and then white embossed it and then using my Spectrum Noir Aquablend pencils coloured the image.  I started off using light colours and gradually added deeper colours to give it more depth.

You can also pop over to the Spectrum Noir blog to find out loads of tips and techniques on using all your Spectrum Noir products.
