I Managed to get the Crazy Cats & Dogs Dies from Sizzix this week for just £9, so just had to use them and also I have been playing with my new Tim Holtz stamping platform which arrived this week after 4 weeks of waiting. My original idea was making messy backgrounds so have used them as well.
I brought a magazine today with this embossing folder on it with some stamps so I just had to use it on a card.I have used shoe polish to colour the background using a tissue.The flower in the centre is from Impression Obsession.
This weeks Make & Take, Humming Bird from Inkadinkado.
I have made a lovely soft background by scribbling Felt tip markers on to a messy mat then spray with water and then dip your card. Stamped and embossed the bird and coloured it with the same pens with a water brush.
Here are 5 cards for tomorrows workshop at Southlands.
I have used Distress crayons to make the background to make it look like a beach and the sea, then stamped the boats (Stampin Up) and trees and grasses(Stampscapes)
I have swiped the dirty baby wipe from the first card and made a much softer background then stamped the yacht. The dies are from Ultimate Crafts.
Here I have stamped and embossed with white powder then whitewashed all the flowers using a white re-inker then coloured with the ink pads. Flower stamps are from Stampin Up.
A blue background stamped with the sea and mountain, I then cut out the circle and stamped the cottage in the trees, mounted it on to a blue circle and stuck it back to match the background. all stamps are from Stampscapes.
A sponged background the sponged the stencil over the top then used the stencil again but this time I sprayed the wrong side with water and placed it over the top of the coloured card then left it to dry about 10-15 minutes and it takes up some of the colour, Dies and stencil are by Tim Holtz.
