Bubble Chicks

IMG_1641

Hi bloggies!

Here is the 3rd of 3 background experiments that I tried recently using my distress oxide inks. This was supposed to be a galaxy background… BUT … I made a mistake of wetting the sponged ink background with shimmer spray instead of just water!! The colours merged beautifully with this gorgeous sparkly shimmer on top and I just couldn’t bring myself to sponge black ink over the top! The galaxy background will have to wait until another day!

How super cute is this stamp set?! I had a quick look around online for a COPIC tutorial for colouring bubbles and was pretty happy with the result. A bit of Wink of Stella helps them to sparkle and look really pretty.

It is a little hard to see the background under the acetate window … but … trust me … it is super gorgeous! 😉

Tiny Townies Mermaid

IMG_1631

I have enjoyed a couple of Saturdays up at Robertson recently at Mel’s Camp Papercraft. Last month my sis came with me and we played with my Distress oxide Inks. She loved them so much she bought some of her own! My last post was the 1st of 3 Distress oxide backgrounds that we tried…..

Today’s is the second ……

IMG_1630
I have sponged some inks onto white card then used some shimmer spray to spritz all over a wave stencil and then pressed the wet side of the stencil down onto the card. The Distress Oxide ink reacts with the water and a shimmer impression of the stencil is left. (You can use ordinary water if you don’t want the shimmer look.) I loved this effect and will be trying it again for sure!

Once I had created this background I knew I had to use my new mermaid stamp set to finish off the card. I had lots of fun colouring these images and was really happy with the finished card.

Pizza My Heart

IMG_1454

Hello bloggies!

I get a lot of inspiration for my cards from YouTube and have several favourite card makers that I follow. Amy R (Prairie Paper & Ink) often creates her own backgrounds with repeat image stamping and often watercolours the images. I thought I would give this idea a try!

IMG_1451

Sometimes Amy heat embosses the image which is a good way to “contain” the watercolour within part of the image but she has discovered that stamping with some inks (eg. Simon says Stamp “Barely Beige”) also “traps” the paint in parts of the image. This gives a “no line” kind of look to the water colouring!!

Today’s card makes me smile! Hope it did for you too!:)

Sports Ball fun!

IMG_1425

Hi bloggies!

This card took a little time … with lots of masking and careful placement of images.

IMG_1422

The copic pen I used for the baseball was very dry … so the details are pretty rough! Oops!

All of our boys are sports fans … and this card was for a son-in-law (Muz) who has his birthday last week. I have had it stashed for awhile!

Hope you are enjoying my latest creations! Thanks for popping by! Hugs xxx

Shock …. a male card!

IMG_1391

Hi bloggies!

I know …. shock …. a male card! Yes! I do actually make them when I must! Actually I do have a few to share! So keep watching for more!

IMG_1394

This was one of my first attempt at foiling using die cuts from  black toner sheets … the sentiment & balloons.

The back ground was stamped, white embossed & sponged with SU! ink.

Hello bloggies!

Here’s another card I recently posted on Instagram.

IMG_1606

I do love these cute-pie cave kids and the matching background Stamp.

The background is a watercolour wash using Zig clean colour real bush markers. And … the cutie couple is coloured with copic markers.

Thanks for your interest!
