Half way through the week ...

Morning all,

A little while back I saw a fabulous card from Paula Whitaker and was taken with her work .... her make was in yellow and grey but I decided to experiment with pink and, aside from discovering my rosebud ink pad has all but dried out, I'd like to think it was a success ...... perhaps because of the pale pastel of the dried out ink!

My card
The front, back and inside of my card along with the front and back of my envelope
Materials used:
  • White A2/C6, 250gsm, card and matching sized envelope
  • Two pieces of white card cut to fit
  • One piece of grey card, cut to mat
  • On the smaller piece of white card I used washi tape to mask off a border before applying Memento inks in rosebud (almost time to replace!) and London fog using the Aldi blending brushes (see photo below)
  • Using the Imagination Crafts stencil I applied London fog ink through the chevron, circles and dots areas of the stencil
  • Sunshine Designs foliage image stamped using the London fog ink
  • HLS sentiment stamped using Memento tuxedo black ink
  • Paper Mania mini faux crystal gemstones applied (using my trusty pokey tool) to bling up the foliage images
PaperMania faux crystals, Imagination Crafts mixed media stencil,
HLS doodled flowers, Sunshine Designs CPSD078D
And now for an ATC, I used to make so many but not so much these days as I don't swap as many as I used to either, however, this image and sentiment seemed just perfect for an ATC - hope you agree.

Materials used:
  • ATC blank
  • Snippets of card in purple and white
  • Image and sentiment stamped using black ink, including image on to scrap paper which I then cut out and used as a mask
  • With my mask in place I taped my stencil down and applied the pink ink through it, using a brush
  • Splatter image stamped using the same pink ink
  • Pencils used to colour image
  • I doodled the white border and then blinged up the lady's frock with my glitter pen
Prismacolour scholar pencils Tim Holtz stencil, Recollections splatter and the SU knock off
set of "Beautiful You" that I bought in good faith recently, Memento rosebud and tuxedo black inks
Tsukineko gelly roll gel pen (white) and Wink of Stella clear glitter gel pen
