Watercolour and Barbara Gray

Hello and i seem to be late with today's blog post,
I have challenged my self to use things i have not used a lot off and today i have chosen some clarity stamps as these were bought a few years ago used them once or twice then they have been put away and every time i see them i say i am going to sell them or give them away but just keep the, any way i have used them in this card,
Ingredients are clarity stamps, spectrum aqua pens, memento ink pad pear tart.
watercolour card and black card.
I have stamped the wording with the memento and i stamped the leaves in the corner by colouring on to the stamp with the spectrum aqua pen i then coloured the vase and flower's with the pens and used a brush and water.
finally i mated on to black card then on to 6x6 card blank.

I hope you like and will post again i hope tomorrow,
until next time,
keep crafting.

Spectrum aqua and emmbossing powder

Hello and todays card is done with the spectrum aqua pens a Sheena Douglass stamp called Magnolia blossom and embossing powder and i also used a spellbinders die witch is called majestic labels 25.

This is one of the vids on the Leann chives dvd explaining about the aqua pens.
first you stamp clear ink on to watercolour card and emboss with clear embossing powder,
next is called wet on wet were you wet the card first then with a brush put on the colours, i coloured the pens on to glass mat first then picked up the color from there,

 once i have coloured the image i cut out with the spellbinders die and ink the edges with black soot

   I stamped and cut out the sentiment and matted on to black card stock 

for the finish i mated on to yellow card stock and added some pearls coloured with ct4 from the spectrum noir pens.

Yet again this card took no time at all but really enjoyed doing it,
I hope you have liked this post,

Tattered Lace die card die name Georgina

Hello and today i will be showing you a card made with a tattered lace die that came with the tattered lace magazine issue 13 the die is called Georgina,

The things you will need is 6x6 card blank, red and black card, feathers pearls. a sentiment stamp and you will need some Neena card and pens to color.

So first cut some black and red card to mat and layer onto card blank, then another mat and layer of red and black but this has to be able to fit on the front in a diamond shape,

 Next you need to cut out the die, mat in black and the lady in Neena card stock then you can colour her in with any pens you like, I used spectrum noir's,

Next step is to stick some feathers behind her hat and affix her to the diamond mat and layer, this mat and layer will be stuck on with foam pads to give it some lift,

And for the finishing touches stamp a sentiment onto a even smaller mat and layer of black and red card and affix to the bottom of the card and add some black pearls in to tow opposite corners,
This is the finished card

 I do hope you enjoyed having a look at my card make and how i did it,
Until next time keep on crafting.
