Hello there. I have a few cards to share, so I won’t go into too much detail with each. It’s very wet and cool here at the moment, and though we certainly need some rain, I also have my Aga turned off – problems with Aga and engineer coming to fix it!!!!! It does mean I can craft a little more than usual.
This first card is using the Concord and 9th ‘Thankful Leaves Turnabout Stamp‘ and matching die set:
This stamp set is simply gorgeous, and so forgiving for a turnabout stamp. I stamped it on several different pieces, using different colours, but this one is using the colours for the current Color Throwdown Challenge. Don’t these colours work well together? I used Stampin Up ‘eggplant’ and ‘lemon lime twist‘, Catherine Pooler ‘Aquatini‘ and ‘grass skirt‘. Definitely going to do more of this…..
I will be entering the following challenges with this card:
Color Throwdown – lime green, green, eggplant, aqua
Addicted to Stamps and More – anything goes
QKR Stampede – anything goes
This second card:
is using the colours from CAS Colours and Sketches and stamps from a previous Catherine Pooler Stamp of Approval collection. I didn’t have the specific Stampin Up colours, but substituted Catherine Pooler inks, which I think match quite nicely. Lining these stamps up for the different layers and colours was challenging, I must say…………
I shall be entering the following challenges with this card:
Pinspirational – photo inspiration
CAS Colours and Sketches – Mango Melody, Merry Merlot, Poppy Parade
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge – food and/or drink
and this third card:
is what I put together after watching the Altenew ‘Watercolour Basics and Beyond – lesson 2′.
Using the Altenew Water-colour pan set, putting colour onto wet water-colour card, spritzing, then laying down a stencil – weighting it down with acrylic blocks – letting it dry – hey presto.
I shall be entering the current challenge at AAA Cards – use a stencil.
I then added a layered die-cut sentiment as you see.
I did do another piece but I’m not sure what to do with this one – maybe use to die cut something, as I don’t really like it as it is:
Now on to lesson three of this course………… 🙂
