CAS COLOURS & SKETCHES #443 SKETCH CHALLENGE

 Hi there Crafty Friends! It's time for another challenge at CAS Colours & Sketches and we have Vicky as our host this month. She has given us another fun sketch to play with this week. 


I stamped the leaves using the second generation method with Antique Linen spritzed with water. When dry, I stamped again, repositioning the stamp and this time using Zig Markers and Distress Oxide Inks. 
I inked the edges and splattered with gold ink. The sentiment was originally stamped in gold, but then I went over it in red to get more depth. 

Stamps: Penny Black Nature's Gifts; SU sentiment
Die Spellbinders frame


I hope you'll pop on over to our blog to see the wonderful creations from our Design Team and be inspired to join us in the challenge.

More Fall Cards

I have a folder on my Desktop that's full of cards I've made, but haven't yet posted, so today I decided to share a few.

 

I used Karin Markers direct to stamp, blended with wet brush, to stamp these trees. Added a bit of definition, a wash under the trees and of course a touch of splatter:)
Stamps: Stamplorations Vignette: Tree Silhouette

I used Karin Markers again to stamp these leaves. I couldn't resist adding some splatter!
Stamps: Gina K Autum Silhouettes

The grid pattern was stamped with Delicata Gold ink and I used Karin Markers for the leaves, sentiment and splatter.

Bear in the City

 My Daughter asked me to make a Bear themed card for her Boyfriend's birthday. 

I stamped the cityscape off the edge on both sides of the panel using Karin Markers and spritzer.  Then I painted the road with watered down Karin Markers. 
The Bear was coloured with Zig Markers. 
To finish I stamped the sentiment and coloured the balloon with Karin Markers. 
Can you tell I love my markers? They're so versatile!

Stamps: Penny Black Skyline; The Ton Stamps Honey Bears; W&W sentiment

CAS COLOURS & SKETCHES #442

 Hi there Crafty Friends. It's time for a new challenge at CAS Colours & Sketches.  Vicky's  hosting this month and she's chosen another gorgeous colour combo for this challenge.  I hope you like these colours and will play along with us. 

Once again I turned to a Penny Black stamp to create with these gorgeous colours.

I chose to make a square card because of the size of the stamp. The image was coloured with Karin Markers and the edge of the card was inked with Distress Ink. To finish I added the sentiment an mounted on a white card base. 

Stamps: Penny Black Delight, Stampin Up Artistically Inked





I would love for you to visit our blog to see what the rest of the team have created and will feel inspired to join us in the challenge.

Paper Rose Studio Dies

 I have a few cards to share using Paper Rose Studio Dies. I just received some of their  stamps today, so I look forward to playing with them I always good to support an Australian Company:)


This one is my favourite, because I'm really into Australian Native Florals at the moment. 
I used Daniel Smith watercolour paints to colour the die cut.  The background was sponged with Distress Inks and liberally splattered with water.
Die: Paper Rose Studio Gum Leaves; Penny Black Antique Frame

***************************************

I used pretty Kaisercraft Japanese inspired patterned paper and the Inlaid  Die-cutting Technique.
I painted behind the Lotus with Altenew Metallic Paint.
Die: Paper Rose Studio Lotus Bloom

This time I used the die as a stencil and brushed Distress Ink on the rose. I used dimensional tape behind the die-cut.

Bee-youtiful!

 I have another card for AA Card Challenge 200th Birthday celebration. I've been a bit obsessed with making bee cards recently and this is one of them...


I embossed the hexagon pattern with a die. Next I die-cut the hexagons to make a stencil and mask. 
Then I sponged Distress Ink and stamped the script through the stencil. 
The bees were stamped, coloured with Zig Markers and die-cut. 
Stamps: Gina K Beautiful Bees
Die: Stampin Up Honey Bees
