Garden in Bloom

The triple banner punch is great for quickly adding that extra element to cards.  For this card I have punched vellum, stamped with Staz-on ink and then used markers to colour the reverse side. 
The Stampin' Write Markers I used are the 2014-2016 In Colours.

Garden in Bloom is a fun set that lends itself well to lots of playing.  You will be seeing more of it from me in the upcoming months.

An Open Heart

'An Open Heart' may seem simple but it's a stunning set.  I just love it.  There's a lot you can do with it.  I was inspired by a card I found on pinterest here.

Awesomely Artistic

Good morning.  Today's card uses 'Awesomely Artistic'.  I just love this set and the range of images it has. 
Again I have used the background watercolour technique on the shimmery white cardstock. 

Colour combo=  Blackberry Bliss/   Mint Macaroon/   Tip Top Taupe.

Loving the randomness of the metallic thread.  I use a glue dot and then scrunch and secure from there.

Summer Silhouettes Watercolour Technique

In my latest newsletter my 'top tip' was creating watercolour backgrounds on shimmery white cardstock.  I used this technique for my team swap last month(pictured).  The flower/leaves are all from 'Summer Silhouettes' and the sentiment from 'Choose Happiness'. 

Spritzing and 'painting' with the aqua painters is fun!  When it comes to stamping the images, if the cardstock is still a little damp, they bleed slightly creating a lovely effect. If the card is too wet then the images can turn to mush.  I learnt that along the way :)  The thing I like about this technique is that no two cards turn out exactly the same.

The shimmery white cardstock sparkles in the sun.  It really is stunning IRL.  The colours are tip top taupe, mint macaron, and watermelon wonder.
