In Bloom: Renee's Leaves

Hello I have this card on the Seven hills crafts blog today.
Today I have a card featuring Winnie and Walter's  In bloom:Renee's leaves stamp set.

To start I stamped the image onto water colour card with versamark and then heat embossed in platinum.
Then using the Gansai tambi water colours I coloured the images really loosely.
I let it all dry then added splashes of the white gold from the starry colours set.

The panel was die cut with Lawn fawns stitched rectangles and also a smaller rectangle of vellum.
For the sentiment I used Lawn fawns scripty thanks die. 
Its cut from water colour card and then coloured with the white gold water colour.
I adhered to the vellum and then added the same adhesive on the reverse of the vellum so nothing shows through once everything is put together.
To finish I added more splashes of the white gold.

Lawnscaping #136 Punny Time

On the Lawnscaping blog today is a really punny challenge lol
We want you to make a project with a punny sentiment.
I know your going to have fun with this one.
This challenge is sponsored by the fabulous Lawn Fawn.

Lawn fawn has so many fun stamps and sentiments that it was tough to choose which one to go with. 
I went with the Life is good stamp set.

To start I stamped the crab in various colours onto my card base.
I chose beach/sea type of colours.
Once there were enough images I then added some gold glimmer  mists.
Once that dried a white strip of card with the sentiment was placed across the card.

I stamped and coloured the crab with copics before fussy cutting and adding to the card at the end of the sentiment.
Hope to see lots of punny cards in the gallery.
Thanks for looking.

Tickled pink

Here is my blog post from the Seven hills crafts blog today.
Today i have a card using the fun hogs and kisses stamp set from Avery Elle.

I wanted a clean and simple card but have used a bright colour to add a bit of impact.
To start I stamped the pig image onto my water colour card panel.
He was then coloured with Inktense pencils and a water brush.
Once it was dry I the water coloured the whole panel with distress ink.
For the main sentiment i i have die cut the scripty thanks from Lawn fawn in black so that it stands out.

Lawnscaping challenge #135 Patterned Palooza

We have a super fun challenge starting on the  Lawnscaping challenges blog today.
We want you to add some patterns to your projects, you could use patterned paper or stamping get creative and have fun. 
This challenge is sponsored by the amazing generous Ellen Hutson LLC.

As you can see I have used the fabulous mermaid for you stamp set for my card.
To start my card I made my card blank from white card and then stamped one of the sea weed stamps repeatedly. 
I used four different blue inks to give an ombre effect.
I then added a sheet of vellum over the top to tone down the pattern a bit.

I stamped the images in momento black ink and then coloured with copics.
Once everything was coloured in I fussy cut them.

I also used some patterned paper to make the circle die cut.
I wanted the circle to centre the images. 
The sentiment was added below on a banner. 
Thanks for looking.

Lawnscaping #134 Rainbow

Today is the start of a new challenge over on the Lawnscaping blog.
We want to see everything "rainbow".
Personally I can not wait to see  how beautiful the gallery is going to be filled with so much colour.
This weeks sponsor is the amazing Lawn Fawn

To start my rainbow card I made my card base from my normal white card and using distress inks added a mixture of colours.
I the dies cut a panel of water colour car and made a blue ombre effect with some zig clean color pens and a water brush.
Then i stamped the waves with first and second generation stamping.

The sea monster was stamped in black archival ink on to water colour card and water coloured with inktense pencils and a water brush.
I gave him rainbow tentacles so he really stands out from the blue background.
I don't have the matching dies for this set so I fussy cut leaving a bit of a border.
To finish I stamped the sentiment and added some sequins and seed beads.
Thanks for looking.

Winnie and Walter new cutaways day three


Its the final day of the new coordinating cutaways reveal and I have been blown away with the amazing projects from everyone.
You can see all of the inspiration on the Winnie and Walter blog here.
Don't forget to comment on the blog posts for a chance to win $50 store credit :)

Today I have used the In bloom Addies garden cutaways and stamp set.
First I stamped the flowers and leaves in black archival ink and water coloured with zig clean color brush pens.
The cutaways were really easy to line up and cut my thick water colour paper really well.

To make the background I coloured a die cut panel with distress ink in an ombre style.
Then using vellum and the Lulu fringe cutaway I layered it up on three quarters of the panel and finished with a stripe of glitter card.
I stamped the sentiment from Winter woodland straight onto the panel.

Thanks for looking.
