My Own Random Take on expressive florals this flower kind of just happened
Saunders Waterford Paper with Royal and Langnickel tube watercolours, a Twidley Bits card base, some satin ribbon (loving my new bow it all v 2), Pink Card from a DCWV Matting Stack, Stamp it Australia Fiendship quotes stamps, and a smidge of pearl ink.
Not quite like the teachers but I kind of like how they turned out
A combo of Brusho and Royal and Langnickel tubes on Saunders and Waterford Paper, Stamp it Australia Friendship Quotes stamps, DCWV Matting Stack, and Distress Ink. Ribbon from my Stash and my Trusty Bow it all.
This really is a combo of Days 3 and 4 kind of melding two Card Scene tecnhiques into one
I used a Stencil, Viva Las Vegas Stamps, Brusho’s and Royal and Langnickel Tubes and also Canson Watercolour paper which I totally love for brusho, I know this is far from perfect yest I could have added more light and shadow to the buildings but I kind of wanted this a bit like a movie set rather than the real deal so to speak
I had an idea for a shaker card, and then as I was doing it realised it combined two lessons into one. Though I did not use alphabet dies.
I had to die cut the shaker bits as I do not have any here atm. Enter some itty bitty dies I have had in my stash for a while and viola a Shaker Card
Ingredients: Sizzix Alterations Skull Blueprint, Archival Jet Black Ink, Lifestyle Crafts Plastic Sheet, Memory Box Dies in ‘Mini Clouds’ and ‘Grim Cauldron’, CC Designs Die ‘Mini Bats’ Paper Accents Pearlised Paper in Baroque(Mostly leftover bits from my card the other day)
This card has had many hours work put into it. It started as a seed of an idea and whilst it did not turn out perfectly how I had hoped I think it turned out pretty well for something I had never done before.
Ingredients: Dylusions Ink sprays (I love watercolouring with these), Ranger Water Colour Paper, DCWV Neutrals white core Cardstock, Cottage Cuts Die ‘Heart Fence’, Distress Inks, Ink Blending Tool, Lifestyle Crafts Alphabet die set, Little B White Chipboard, Sakura ‘Glaze’ and ‘Clear Stardust’ Pens, Versamark Sepia Ink Cube, Momento Tuxedo Black ink, Gelatos, Crafty Secrets ‘Little Dancer’ Stamp set
Have to say I started with a completely diff idea for this card and then flipping through my dies I found the graveyard boarder die and remembered I had the witches die and the idea was born. I am sharing both versions of the Card the blinged up starry sky version and the plain not sure which I like better tbh.
I would change a couple of things like adding the witches into the technique. But as always live and learn
Ingredients: Lifestyle Crafts Dies ‘Graveyard Boarder’ & ‘Witches’, Liquitex Iridescent Medium (I love this to add a pearl type shimmer to things as I had no white pearlised paper this worked well to make the moon blend into everything else), Paper Accents Pearlised Paper in ‘Baroque’ and ‘Gems’, Thermoweb Foam Squares.
And 2mm Nail Art Rhinestones (well worth looking for on ebay I scored 20k for $4 which is a total bargain you can get bigger sizes I like the 2mm for doing hand blinged flourishes and what not. Totally a bargain crafter’s dream)
Soo this did not quite turn out the way I had envisioned, I think it was my mistake to stamp the image in desert sand and then try to colour her. However whilst not completely happy with it, I don’t hate it. The original stenciling has been lost somewhat due to the use of Iridescent Medium to give the ‘curtains’ their shimmer.
Ingredients: Lifestyle Crafts Plastic Sheets, and Scalloped Circle Nesting Dies, Prima Brick Stamp, Liquitex Iridescent Medium, Marriane Design Collectables ‘Banner Words’, Chameleon Colour Tones, Fude Ball Pen in Black, Gelatos, Unkown Stamp, Thermoweb Foam Squares
I will admit this one was a bit of a struggle for me, turns out I can now add 3 areas of my die stash I am lacking in itty bitty mini dies, Single Leter Alphabet dies and boarder dies that do not chop off a whole strip with it.
Still happy with the way this card turned out 🙂
