We have a sketch challenge for the month of July over on the Woodware blog.
I have done a very simple card even for me this week, as I am having family things going on.
I have used stamps from Woodware, Stampendous and Magenta.
The main image is from Jane’s Clear Magic set Jewel Garden I have water coloured the stamped image with a mixture of the Mica Palettes and the background I coloured with the Clear Star Sakura pen.
I have punched the layers with the two Punches Super Duper Elipse and the Scalloped Huge Elipse, the sizes are designed to layer really well together and I like the way that you can mix the scallop and plain punches.
I have stamped the Stampendous Cling Rubber Dreamy Leaves and embossed it with two of the powders from the Rich and Rugged set from Stampendous. I love using these sets as they have lovely colours of powders in them and you don’t always want the full size jars of the more unusual colours.
This week it another sketch for the Woodware Challenge, I really like doing these, it makes you think differently about your card.
I really should follow Francoise instructions and start with the papers that I want to use before I start to colour it would make life much less stressful.
I have used a Stampendous stamp Tiers of Treats and as usual I have coloured the cakes with USArtQuest Mica pallet , but I have also used Sakura pens and Tombow Pens, I don’t think that the photograph shows up the differences that using the different colouring methods give. The paper comes from a GCD 8 x 8 pad. I really like that these double sided pads. The background paper behind the stamped image was made with Memory Mist spray, the sprays are really good for creating papers I tend to do a selection at a time.
The corners were made with the must have corner rounder. The greeting comes from a Woodware Clear Magic Set by Francoise called Sharing Cuppa and the frame is from is from a Stampendous Perfectly Clear Set. The Woodware Inverted Corner punch is a perfect fit for the frame.
I hope that you like this card, please play along with us and link your card on the Woodware Blog. Please visit again soon.
This week I have used layered peel offs for my flowers, they are really good fun and they are a nice thing to play with when you just want to watch telly and fiddle without much effort. The thing that I like about the peel offs is that you can change the appearance and creat 3D cards with them.
This photograph lets you see that the peel offs have had a home made mix of pink flock and glitter added to the sticky side of them. First peel them off and add centres then add the flock glitter mixture. I used pink, blue and purple peel offs but only the pink glitter/flock mixture. By using the various colours of peel offs I got enough colour variety without the mess that I would have had around the kitchen and the dog with lots off different glitter and flock going around.
The stamped image in the background was done with Onyx Black Versafine and is from a Stampendous Shape Shifter set, if you have not tried shape shifting you really should very exciting! Fran’s video will reveal all Shape Shifting.
The edges were done with a sponge and Stargazer Mica watecolour pallet, and the water in the vase was done with the pallet and a water brush.
Here you can see I have been adding the centres to the pale green leaves from the dark green sheet.
I hope that you have enjoyed this card pop over to the Woodware Blog to see what the rest of the team have been up to.
