Good morning. This one is a quick and easy make using a pretty decorative background paper.
Stamps from Key to My Dreams set. Stamped with Versamark and embossed with detail white powder onto Crafty Individuals background paper from the ‘Shades of Summer’ pad. Applied Distress Ink (Tumbled Glass) around the inner edges of a heart stencil and over the text using a blending brush. The images were also lightly coloured with Distress Ink picked up from the mat using a damp brush. Mounted onto a 6 X 6 card blank and finished with a little glitter glue and PVA pearls. A little Glossy Accents was also added to give the keys added dimension and shine.
Good morning. I had so much fun creating a fantasy world with the Steampunk themed stamps recently featured on Hochanda. Today I am sharing one of my show samples. I just love this sentiment verse and the fun sentiments that come with these stamp sets.
Electronic cutting files were used to cut the bats (Silhouette), spiders (JM Rush Silhouette Store) and ferns (Tattered Lace Brother ScanNCut USB). The skeletons and vines (Sheena Douglass), and Pumpkin (Sizzix) were cut using dies.
Lesley Wharton is coming back to out screens today bringing a One Day Special – Gorgeous Steampunk stamp sets from Chocolate Baroque.
Shows start today at 6pm and 8pm (Hochanda Freeview Channel 85 – or watch online from their website). More shows tomorrow at 9am, 1pm and 5pm. I cannot wait to see the demos and all the inspirational samples from my Teamies.
Here is a little sneak peek of my samples. I had so much fun making these.
Good morning. Today I am sharing one of my samples for the recent shows on Hochanda featuring the Pretty Poppies and Poppy Meadow stamps from Chocolate Baroque.
I coloured my scene using the fabulous alcohol markers from Chameleon. I simply love the new Color Tops that allow you to blend 2 completely different colours seamlessly – very tricky to do with standard alcohol pens.
The card background was stamped with the honesty stamp and Distress Ink. The corners were stamped with Versafine and the edges blended lightly with Distress Ink.
The foreground poppies were stamped onto copy paper and cut out to create masks. Small dots of zig glue were added to the back and left to dry (turns from blue to clear) to create a temporary stick to hold them in place.
The foreground poppies were stamped with Memento (water based ink that will not bleed when colouring with alcohol ink pens) and then covered with the masks before stamping the background poppies.
The stems were extended where needed by drawing with the fine tipped pen (NB. Make sure it is suitable for colouring with alcohol pens without bleeding – test if unsure).
The image was then coloured with alcohol pens. I love the delicate transparent finish – perfect for delicate poppies. I used the new Chameleon pens with Color Tops. These enable really easy one step blending of one colour into the next. Leaves were coloured with YG3 and NU0 Color Top, Flowers with BL3 and PK3 Color Top, Buds with BL3 and NU0 Color Top, Butterfly with YL2 and and PK3 Color Top.
A little texture and extra shading was added where needed with coloured pencils. The sentiment was stamped with Versafine and heat embossed with clear powder to emphasise. The card was edged with black marker to frame and glued to the card front with 3D foam for added dimension.
The butterfly was stamped with Memento onto a spare scarp of card, coloured with alcohol pens and cut out. To enhance the butterfly details (the grey ink was a bit pale) I overstamped it with Versafine Ink.
A little metallic ink was used on the butterfly and stamens. Further sparkle was added with Stickles glue.
Another quick and easy card for you this morning. Small thank you card created with the Pretty Poppies stamp set. Stamped with Versamark and heat embossed with ‘sticky’ powder (Wonder Glue Powder). This leaves a tacky residue suitable for adding foils, mica or gilding flakes. I rubbed over with multi coloured gold flakes.
