Wildflowers ......

Here is a Birthday card made recently .....

I used a variety of techniques and mediums to make this card.  Modelling paste was used through a stencil, dye inks were blended and applied with a waterbrush.  Diecuts were coloured in a similar fashion.  The layers were matted on foam pads and some pearls used to decorate.

It is available in my Etsy Shop too !

Birdie Birthday .....

Made a birdie Birthday Card today .....

Started with a 6 x 6 inch white card blank and made a panel using Distress Inks & Distress Oxides with stamps, stencils and sprays.  This was trimmed and matted on printed paper.  The bird was diecut from some card decorated with printed papers and assembled on foam pads on a branch which was stamped in Versafine black ink on the panel. His beak was coloured black and a black gem added as an eye.

Another panel was stamped with the sentiment and again matted and placed as shown on foam pads.

Some orange flat backed gems were added to finish the card.

Buildings ......

We run a monthly postcard Swap over on UK Stampers Forum - this months theme is 'Buildings' ...

I started with a 6 x 4 inch piece of white card as the base.  I then used Distress Oxide in walnut stain & vintage photo and stamped lots of times with a distressed spots stamp from Prima.  I then sprayed with small amounts of water and continued to stamp to blend the two colours until I obtained the finish I liked.

I then stamped some text (PaperArtsy) in Versamark and heat embossed this with detail black embossing powder.

I then used a Magenta stamp and stamped this in Memento black onto more white card.  I trimmed this out and coloured selectively with a gold Posca pen. This was stuck in place with Glossy Accents.

The words (PaperArtsy) were stamped in Memento black onto paper, trimmed out, stuck in place and decorated with a yellow Posca pen which also edged the words, main image and dots around the card.

I used dark brown Versamagic chalk ink to edge the card.  The whole thing was mounted on another layer of card to finish.  I then sprayed with matt acrylic sealant to protect.

It travels through the post 'naked' to its randomly chosen recipient at the end of Month.  If you like the idea of joining this and other Swaps, please click HERE to go to the Forum and join us !
