Stamping Bella Uptown Girl Faith the Fairy Birthday Card

Good morning.  Hope you are all okay today.

I have a card to share today using one of the Stamping Bella Uptown Girl stamps.  I love these stamps and I don't use them often enough.

For this card I have used:
Uptown Girl Faith the Fairy coloured with copics.
The DP's are some offcuts from my stash.
Not added a great deal to this card other than a border with a bit of ribbon and a button, a greeting and a few pearls as I wanted the image to be the main focus.

Papermania Watercolour Rainbow Birthday Card

Good morning all.  Hope you are well this morning.

I have been playing with my watercolour paints again so I have a card to share today where I have attempted to make a rainbow effect background. 

I stamped the image Papermania Mini Stamp Fox with Archival ink and masked the image with Aquatint Liner.  When that was dry I brushed the watercolour paper with water and then added the different colours of watercolour paint in layers.  I spritzed the image with water to get the colours to blend and merge a little bit more.

When the watercolour was dry I removed the mask from the fox and coloured him with watercolour pencils and clear Wink of Stella.

The greeting is stamped with Archival Ink.  I managed to smudge some ink when I stamped the greeting  so I had to add the orange corner panel to hide my little mistake...



Thanks for stopping by and I'll see you soon.

For my card I have used:
Butterfly on a Toadstool digital stamp from Angie's Digital Stamps that I have embossed on watercolour card using a Ranger Emboss It pen and white embossing powder and have then coloured using Spectrum Aqua Pens.

Visible Image Butterfly Birthday Card.

Good Morning.  Hope you are all well today.

I have a card to share today and as you can see it's another butterfly card.

My last card had butterflies on it and my next post mid week is also a butterfly card.
I'm not sure how this happened as I don't really have a thing for butterflies (I have a bit of an insect phobia) but I've been playing around trying different techniques and butterflies seemed to fit the type of card I was making.

For this card I have used:

Backgound - Have used the Ranger Ink Blending Tool to add colour using the Distress ink pads Tumbled Glass, Seedless Preserves and Shabby Shutters and have then spritzed with water.

I have stamped the Visible Image Butterfly INKognito and greeting with versamark ink and embossed with black embossing powder.



I'm entering this  card into the following challenge:

A Beautiful Mess - Anything Goes




Thanks for stopping by, see you soon.
