Perfume Lady by ~*Arwen*~

 Hi Lovelies ❤


Welcome back on this Blog!

Today, I wanna show a new postcard which I'd made for this Blog.



And that's the way, how I made it:

1.)

I use watercolor paper and VersaFine Clair to stamp my image. For this I use the stamp setter to help.



2.)

Before I color the image, I design the background. For this I first use watercolor paints from Lukas.



3.)

I wipe the edges even darker with Distress Oxide.



4.)

I use a mix of water and Perfect Pearls to give the background a water stain effect.




5.)

After masking the images, I use a texture paste and a stencil to finish the background.



6.)

When the paste is dry, the image can now be colored.


all stamps, I used:

- Perfume Lady

- I cain't wait 

 

other supplies:

- Watercolor paper

- VersaFine Clair

- Texture paste

- handmade watercolors

No.7 mini slimline card by Cathy N

Good morning, all Cathy here with a slimline card. 

I started out with some watercolor paper. I used 2 different pink distress inks, and I made the background.
I then took the cross marks background and stamped in a pink distress ink. After that I took the grunge 1787 writing background and the writing and scribbles collage and stamped it on the background. 

Next, I added the rose image layered on black cardstock to the top and a pink dyed ribbon to the bottom and then I added it all to a mini slimline card base.

Tag Tuesday by Cathy N

 Good morning, Cathy here with a tag Tuesday for you.

I started out with some white tags, and I made 2 backgrounds. I used distress ink to make them. I really don't like these tags because they have a smoothness to them that doesn't like to take ink.

                                    

This is not what I had in mind when I started making this tag. I happen to get my grab bag when they had a sale on them today, so of course I had to play with my new stamps. 

I started stamping the Apocalypse and the Bullet Hole randomly around the tag. Next, I stamped the Gas Mask on some white cardstock and colored it with copic markers and cut out. 


I then saw this embossed brick paper that I had left over from another card I had made and thought that would be perfect for an apocalypse tag Tuesday. So, I cut it down, so it looked broken and then added the Gas Mask to the front of it. 
Lastly, I edged it all with some black ink.


 

                                                              Stamps Used:

                                                      19136 Apocalypse

                                                      19128 Gas Mask

                                                      19139 Bullet Hole

BANKSY Favourites by Fran Chalmers

Hi everyone!

Today I have made a card using some older but favourite Banksy stamps.


 I star
ted with a background that I made a while ago on a gelli plate using brushos, and at the time I didn't like it, but it seemed perfect for these stamps. 



I used a stamping platform to stamps the main image as I wanted it to be very black.



 I stamped the safety pin around an ink splatter.  I marked the back of the stamp to help me see where the gap in the safety pin is.



I stamped the sentiment, and finished off the card by drawing an edging round the card with a fine black liner and coloured the skirt of the Mom to pick up the orange colour in the background.  I then mounted it onto a black card.





Stamps Used:

Pin through paper 19946

Other items used:
Blank black card
Brushos
Gelli plate
Black fine liner pen

Come what may by Cathy N

 Good morning, all Cathy here with a postcard for you. 


I started with white cardstock and cut it to 4x6. Then I grabbed a stencil and some green distress ink and make the background. I went around the edge with the leftover ink and blended the edges out. 

First, I stamped grungy strip of stars on the bottom of the postcard. Next, I stamped girl with wings on top of the stars so it looks like she is standing on them.

I then stamped the striped border arrow twice on the top and edged it with black marker, I also filled in the open areas with a white pen 

Lastly, I stamped the writing and scribbles collage on one side and then on the other. To finish it off I added a saying. 


                                                                        Stamps Used:

                                                              20247 grungy strip of stars

I do what I want... by Tracy Blackwolf

 Hello everyone!

Today I made a card for the blog- 


For todays card, I wanted to do a watercolor. I stamped the image on mixed media heavy stock. it can really take a lot of medium weather its paints or water or whatever.

I stamped with black versafine clair and dried it with my heat tool. didn't want any smearing. Then I sprayed my TH stains into the plastic pallet. Then just start painting.

I chose the colors for the impression of innocence to go with the snarky sentence .For the blue background, I first went around with my wet paint brush and then took color just out of the cap of the bottle of salvage patina. I wanted it real light.

I dried the card, and then cut my cardstock for the layers and put it all together. Last, I put the sticker sentence on and carefully painted it yellow to match the card. And that is it! I hope you enjoyed!


Stamp used: 
Surprised girl         5554

Other Supplies:
Distress spray stains: Salvaged patina, Saltwater taffy, picked raspberry, antique linen, Victorian velvet, tattered rose, squeezed lemonade.

Verse-TH93704 small talk - snarky   stickers

cardstock
white gel pen- for the eye whites
