Blossoms and Butterlies

It's my last post as guest designer for the month for CAS Colours & Sketches.  This week there is a sketch challenge.

I used the ink and spritz technique.

Here are the supplies I used ... with the Alexandra Renke Welcome Butterflies stamp set.

Complementary Colours

Turquoise and red-orange are complementary colours - in the traditional colour wheel.

I love this copper embossing powder ...

Although red, blue and yellow are considered primary colours, why do printers have Magenta, Cyan and Yellow as the inks to print all colours?!  

Wouldn't you like to know? Well here it is ...

That was an eye-opener for me!

What do you think?

I have quite a few friends becoming grandparents ... and so I'm in need of more cute baby and kids cards.  So I have a few new cute sets and I'm combining different sets.

And a second one with the same set ...

And one with the 2 together.

Soft Wishes

I'm lucky to be guest designing at JUGS this month. It's time for a new challenge and it's a colour challenge this week.

Thinking of You

This is my third week Guest Designer for the month of September at CAS Colours and Sketches.

It's a colour challenge this week.

I stamped in a light brown ink (Altenew Sand Dunes) then coloured with Prismacolour pencils.  I have just received some Gamsol and so this is the first time I have used it.  I love how it smoothes out the pencil so there are no lines.

Once it was all coloured, I put the card back in my MISTI and restamped the flowers with Versamark and then embossed with Princess Gold embossing powder. It's such a lovely soft gold.

Happiest Wishes

It's time for a new CASology Challenge. This fortnight's cue word is DRAGONFLY.

I thought I would do some inlaid dies to keep it flat and CAS. To add focus and flow, I die cut some curved edges to make masks to add some shading.

I added Diamond Stickles to give those wings some real shimmer, and some Nuvo Crystal drops for a flight line.

Fly on over and check on the creations of the design team and be inspired. Looking forward to seeing your take on the cue word.

Artsy Birthday Cake

What do you do when you have left over alcohol ink bits and pieces (like from this and this card)?

Cut them up and make a cake!!

Topped with some fancy letter candles.

Special Birthdays

When you have those big special Birthdays, you pull out the big guns to up the ante!

Adding a metallic touch gives it that special elegant style. I used Platinum Embossing powder and Platinum Liquid Pearls.

Some of the flowers were die cut and some fussy cut from the washi tape.

Here's a close-up of the metallic embossing powder.

Get Well Soon

My second week as guest designer at JUGS for the month of September.  This week's challenge is a trend ... stacking dies.

All the die cuts were done in white cardstock, then I coloured with Copics.
