Touchy Feely ...........

This card has been made as an entry into this fortnights recipe challenge for weeks 286 & 287 over on the Less is More Challenge blog whose theme is 'Use Something Tactile'

I decided to look at what I had in my stash and found a collection of pots of micro Deco Beads in various colours and I thought if I used these as an infill on a solid stamped image it would provide a touchy-feely texture to the finished image.

I took a 4 x 4 inch white card blank and stamped directly in Versafine black ink with a styalised flower stamp from Anitas that I have had for years.  It's a solid image of a flower with foliage which I thought was ideal.

I then used Glossy Accents as an adhesive and coloured the petals with magenta beads, the leaves with green beads and the flower centre with gold beads. I left a border showing in black to set off the infill with the beads.  Once dry these provided a raised textural finish to the flower.

The sentiment (PaperArtsy) was stamped in black Versafine ink to finish.

Low Calorie Diet?

The challenge this week over on the City Crafter Challenge Blog for week 323 is 'I Gained A Stone' so I made this rather sweet card as my entry.

I started with a 6 x 6 inch white card base.  On another piece of white card I stamped four 'inchie' stamps from Inkadinkado in black Memento dye ink and then punched these out with a 1 inch square punch.  Thought that these stamps fitted the bill for the subject perfectly.

These were then coloured with Marvey alcohol brush pens, edged in black and decorated with diamond Stickles for a bit of bling.

I then cut lengths of rainbow striped Washi Tape, torn at one end and applied directly to the card base and edged the left and bottom sides with fine black Micron pen to add relief.

I then applied the decorated inchies on foam pads over the Washi Tape as shown.  The sentiment is from Stamping Bella and I stamped direct onto the card in Versafine black ink to finish.

Think if you have a sweet tooth these little tempting treats could soon add on the weight although the subject centres on baking really and who doesn't like to spoil themselves with a little treat from time to time ?

Enjoy !!!!

Leafy Celebration

I made this card using mainly Uniko stamps and clear embossing powder.  Bold colours but subtle embossing to allow the original colours to show through and acting as a resist to more colour layers added after the embossing.

I started with a 4 x 4 inch white card blank and cut a matt slightly smaller out of more white card.  I then set about colouring this with Adirondack and Distress inks in greens and blues applied on cut'n'dry foam.  I then randomly stamped the rough spots (Finnabair) in emerald ink.

I then stamped in the leaf stamps in Versamark ink and heat embossed with detail clear embossing powder to act as a resist.

More of the same colours were added to produce a much darker layer and the excess wiped off with a dry paper towel to reveal the lighter lower layer.

The Celebrate Today sentiment was stamped in black Versafine ink on more white card, trimmed out, edged with blue distress ink and applied on foam pads as shown. Three green pearl cabochons were added to finish.

A bit moody but bold at the same time.
