Plane and Simple Embossing

Today I’m sharing a card featuring a white heat embossed acetate panel. I love the look of this technique, especially when layered over a panel of colour. I shared another card previously using this technique - click here to check out that card too. I cut a piece of heat resistant acetate and treated it… Continue reading Plane and Simple Embossing

Triptych with Cherry Blossoms

I’m sharing a triptych style card today featuring the Pretty Pink Posh Cherry Blossoms stamp set. A triptych is a picture across three panels, and the stitched pieces die is great for creating this look. I wanted to do some watercolouring with my zig pens, so I cut a piece of watercolour card to the… Continue reading Triptych with Cherry Blossoms

Me and My Galaxy Dragon

I shared a photo the other day on instagram of a dragon from the Mama Elephant Me and My Dragon stamp set, which I’d coloured to be a galaxy dragon. I used Faber Castell polychromos pencils to do this. I’ve done plenty of distress ink galaxy backgrounds before, but never tried using colouring pencils so… Continue reading Me and My Galaxy Dragon

Happy Balloons with Distress Oxide Watercolour

Distress oxides are my favourite ink to use. I’ve had my distress oxides for a while but I haven’t used them for watercolour before, so I thought I would try them out on my card today. I chose two colours of distress oxide inks - peacock feathers and cracked pistachio, and pressed the ink pads… Continue reading Happy Balloons with Distress Oxide Watercolour

Hearts and Love Sentiments

The new Love Sentiments set from Pretty Pink Posh has some lovely hearts in various styles and sizes. I thought they would make a great background to accompany a sentiment from the same set.

Blue and White Petunias

I’m continuing my love of blue and white florals with my card today. This time, I’m using colouring pencils for a different look. I began by white heat embossing some flowers and leaves from the Pretty Pink Posh Pretty Petunias stamp set. I then chose some blue shades of pencils and did some very simple… Continue reading Blue and White Petunias
