Paperbabe Stamps challenge #67 - Design team inspiration

Today we have a new challenge on the Paperbabe Stamps Blog. This time around it a sketch theme.

You can use the sketch any way you like, twist it, flip it or totally change it. The whole idea is that you let your imagination run free and have fun.

I have created a project based on the sketch to help inspire you

I used the newly released White Rabbit template and Face stamps to create my main image. 

The background details were added using both the Herringbone stencil and elements from the Designa tweed stamp set

The sentiment is where your dreams take you (currently out of stock). Lastly I added some roses using the Rose layers stamp setTo colour my image I used a combination of Neocolour II and Coloured graphite pencils.

Now it's your turn, head on over to the blog and find all the details you need, including prize info....yes you heard me right there is a prize up for grabs.
Thanks for stopping by, I can't wait to see what you make.

Creative Watercolor media - Altenew Educator Certification program

Today I am sharing a card I created as part of the Altenew Educator certification programme. After taking the Creative Watercolor media class I was inspired to get creative.

I used an ink smooshing technique to create a coloured panel which I dried with my heat gun.  I then used the diamond pattern play stamp to heat emboss in white on top of the coloured panel.

I then used the Layered Medallion B die to cut, creating a beautifully decorative piece. I added a black die cut sentiment using the script word dies 2 die set.

I am really please with how my card turned out, the bright colours and the intricate pattern are so pretty.

I started my project my painting a very light Emerald Green Brusho wash over some Water colour paper. Once dry I stamped the Funny Fungi image and some sentiments onto my coloured background using Versafine black ink. 

I wanted to give my Fungi some vibrant colours so used a fine paint brush to apply some Brusho Acrylic mists (they can be used for more than just spritzing)

Next I mixed some Soft Form relief paste with some copper brusho acrylic mist and applied it with a dotting tool around the tops of the fungi. I like how this almost brings them to life.

While the soft form relief paste was still on my craft table I used the edge of a palette knife to apply some accents around one of the sentiments and in a couple of additional places.

Lastly I added a thin black edge to the paper to frame my project.

Botanical Bliss - Tattered Lace Launch

Hello crafty friends, today I am sharing some cards made with the up and coming launch from Tattered Lace dies

The dies I have used are from the Silhouette collections, there is a link at the end of the post to the items on Create and Crafts website.

There are 3 dies in the collection and I think that inspired me to create 3 different cards with each die. 

The first three cards I created are in a blue and white colour pallet, keeping a clean and fresh feel.

I used distress inks to create a light background.

My second batch of cards were created with Distress Oxide sunset backgrounds and black die cut images and apertures.

My last lot of cards have a vintage feel and were created using the matching charisma images. 

Hopefully I have shown that the die's can be used in several ways to give different looks.

Here's the link to the die collection

You can watch the launch tomorrow evening at 7pm with Carley Duff and Dean Wilson.
