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.
For the backgrounds of these 3 cards I have used Brushos with Mica spray and cling film.
Flowers on this card are by Paperartsy.
Background is blue and purple Brushos with mica spray and cling film.
The Teasles are from Woodware on this card using a mixture of Brushos and a mica spray for the background.
I have used 2 different colour blue Brushos with mica spray and cling film, flowers are
from Stampin Up.
For this background I have used an embossed background and coloured it with Distress Crayons and rubbed over with. a baby wipe. I then added foil on sticky embossing powder and some Frantage in gold and white.
Flowers are from Heartfelt Creations and are stamped and embossed in black then I coloured them with masking fluid so that I could do the background without putting the script over the flowers then I removed the masking fluid and coloured the flowers.
