Day 4 - #thedailymarker30day colouring challenge (August 2021)



Here's my Day 4 of #thedailymarker30day colouring challenge.

I've used a Woodware stamp called "Bubble Butterfly JGS252" for the main image, stamped in Versafine Clair "Morning Mist" grey ink. I then coated it in Wow! clear embossing powder and heat set.  This provides a raised edge to contain the ink/paint within.

I stamped the "Hello" sentiment, part of the Waffle Flower stamp set called "Essential Sentiments" usine Versafine Clair "Nocturne" black ink.

I filled the bubbles with various shades of Distress Oxide inks, adding dots with Posca Pens.  On some of the dots, I added some Ranger "Glossy Accents" to add dimension.

Edited to add: After taking the photo, I put the card to one side and managed to smudge the wet glossy accents, so this card is now in the bin! 

Hobby Arts Ltd "Lino Cut Hares" Card



I had a play with a Hobby Arts Ltd stamp set called "Lino Cut Hares" to make this card.  I stamped in two shades of Versafine Clair inks and used two shades of Distress Oxide Inks in the background along with a white Signo pen for highlights.

Day 3 - The Daily Marker 30 Day Colouring Challenge (August 2021)



Here's my Day 3 piece of colouring, part of #thedailymarker30day colouring challenge. 

I've used a Penny Black cling stamp called "Delicate Florals 40-103", stamped in Versafine Clair "Shady Lane" green ink, then coated in Wow! clear embossing powder and heat set.

I coloured the flowers with two shades of Distress Oxide Inks:  Seedless Preserves and Dusty Concord.  I added touches of "Peeled Paint" Distress Oxide to the leaf area.

In the background, I used a Funky Fossil "Micro Dot Stenicl" with "Bundled Sage" Distress Oxide Ink.

Finally, I stamped the sentiment, which is part of the Simon Says "Tiny Words Birthday" in Versafine Clair "Shady Lane" ink.

Lavinia Stamps "Floral Wreath" Gift Tag



I needed a gift tag, so decided to make one. 

I used the Lavinia Stamps "Floral Wreath" stamp with Versafine Clair "Medieval Blue" ink, coated in Wow! clear embossing powder and then heat set.  I used the same process for the sentiment which is by Waffle Flower and is part of thier "Essential Sentiments" stamp set.

I swooshed the tag through spritzed "Tumbled Glass" Distress Oxide Ink and then ran the heat gun over it to dry.  I then used "Peacock Feather" Distress Oxide Ink through the Lavinia Stamps "Pods" stencil to create the background pattern.

Day 1 - The Daily Marker 30 Day Colouring Challenge (August 2021)



I've decided to take part in "The Daily Marker 30 Day Colouring Challenge" through August. I am likely to get a bit behind as we have a few things planned for the month, but I'm pretty certain I'll get it done eventually.

This is my Day 1 make, on a kaleidoscope theme.  I've used the Funky Fossil  "Flowery Felines" stamp set, designed by Donna Gray for the stamped images.

I've stamped in Versafine Clair "Morning Mist" and "Nocturne" inks.  I've used Distress Oxide Inks and Posca Pens for the colouring.

Stampin' Up Dragonfly Dreams Friend Birthday Card



Today, I've dug out one of my favourite Stampin' Up clear stamp sets, called "Dragonfly Dreams".

I stamped the dragonfly in Versafine Clair "Warm Breeze" ink and then coated it in Wow! clear embossing powder and heat set. I used the same process and ink for the sentiment.

Over the dragonfly wings I used another stamp from the same set with Versafine Clair "Verdant" green. 

For the background, I used three shades of Distress Oxide Inks (Twisted Citron, Tumbled Glass and Peacock Feathers) through the "Broken Mosaic" Funky Fossil stencil. 

Finally, I added some touches of metallic silver and gold using Signo pens to the wings.
