Little Meow Birthday Card, Watercolour Pencils and Wink of Stella

Morning all.  Hope everyone is okay this morning.  We've made it to halfway through the week, not long to go to the weekend.  I've been having a go with some different techniques just lately so I'm sharing a card that I have made using Faber Castell Gelatos and Zig Wink of Stella.

The image is from the Little Meow Someone Special stamp set by Docrafts. This has been stamped onto watercolour paper and coloured with watercolour pencils but instead of water I blended the colour using Clear Wink of Stella.

The background is watercolour paper embossed using the Crafters Companion Barkley Embossing Folder - Flowers For You (which was a bargain, I picked this up from one of the hobbycraft shows from the Everycrafts a £1, 12 items for £10 stall).

I then used 3 colours of Faber Castell Gelatos (Watermelon, Snow Cone, Margarita Mix) on the embossed paper and softened and blended the colours using a babywipe.

The cat, flower, pennant and greeting banner have all been cut using Die-namics Blueprints Set #12 and the scallop circle is one of the spellbinders dies.

It doesn't show that well on the photo but the cat and flags have a gorgeous glistening and sparkly effect.

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:

Cuttlebug Mania - use a stamp
Party Time Tuesdays - Anything Goes

See you soon.....

Santoro Gorjuss Dear Alice Birthday Card

Morning all.  I hope everyone is having a good weekend.  Just a quick post to share a card that I made yesterday.   I've been playing with my copics and one of the new Santoro Gorjuss Stamps by DoCrafts.   The Range are currently doing 3 stamp sets for £10, which is a bargain when you consider they are retailing at £5.95 each.   I do love my Gorjuss stamps, and I don't use them enough...

For this card I have used:
Santoro Gorjuss Stamp - Dear Alice coloured with copics.
DP's - Santoro Gorjuss Paper Pack 6 x 6
The heart background is a stamp I picked up from Hobbycraft stamped with versamark ink and heat embossed with red powder,
The ribbon stamp is from Dear Alice heat embossed with white powder
The flower die is by Die'sire and it was free with the spring edition of the Crafters Companion Insipration magazine
The sentiment is by Craftwork Cards.

My first time colouring purple hair.....

Happy Bee Day To You

Morning all.   I have another card to share today.....I went to one of the papercraft shows a few weeks ago so have spent a little time just playing with some of my goodies.

For this card NO DP's involved...not like me at all.

Items used:

Background - Grunge Paste used with a Honeycomb Stencil by Imagination Crafts and then coloured with Mustard Distress Ink.
Kanban Lace Floral Mat Clear stamp embossed with white embossing powder.
Lawn Fawn Bugs & Kisses clear stamp set coloured with copics and embossed with clear embossing powder and cut using the matching Lawn Fawn Bugs & Kisses die set.
Sentiment from the Tiddlyinks "Happy Bee Day" stamp set.

Gosh there was a lot of items involved with making this card I though the list was never going to end.  I just fancied a change and it nice just to have a play with products with no plan or reason to make the card.

Thanks for stopping by...
