Not quite sure I am great with the whole markers thing, not sure if it was the jac paper, the zig writers or just my inability to blend very well that makes this card one I am not to happy with in terms of the blending of colours and shading. Interesting technique though not sure it is one I will use again in a hurry.
I don’t own any of the stamp and die cut sets at present but I was so inspired by the techniques I just had to try two of the cards. So I used my Brayer with some versamark watermark ink and inked over the top of my butterflies, not quite the same as stamping but I quite liked what I created with the technique. I loved learning how to cut a shape out of the side of a card for this one. Much easier than it sounds btw.
Well there is a card 2 but I lost an element and was kind of over it for the evening so will finish it and upload it tomorrow. The accordian fold card gave me a wonderful opportunity to use some inside and outside card stamps I have.
I loved doing my own Acetate background especially as it gave me a chance to play with A very Deco Looking Buzz and Bloom Stamp Set I have. Love the torn washi tape boarder, I have used it in the past and it gives a kind of funky distressed look with so very little work (has the added benefit of making your washi tape go further as well)
Love how many new Ideas and things to do with Alphabet stamps. I am so happy with this card I may well turn it into my Chrissy Card this year. I chose NOEL as my word instead of a Name simply because it was easier and I wanted to play with some Christmas Stamps (you can see how tired I am considering I posted in the wrong order)
