Make A Wish ......

Here is a card made for the weekly challenge over on the Less Is More Challenge Blog whose theme this week is a sketch ....

I started with a 5 x 7 inch white card blank and cut another slightly smaller matt as the base.  I then diecut 3 roses in different colours and arranged these on the matt before sticking in place.  The sentiment (PapertreyInk) was stamped on white card in Versafine black ink and trimmed out before applying on foam pads.

Three coloured gems were added to finish before the matt was applied to the card on more foam pads.

Friendly Inchies .....

A set of Inchies made for the September Swap over on UK Stampers Forum Facebook Group.......

I punched out six 1 x 1 inch squares of kraft card as the base, followed by six more from white card coloured with Distress Oxides.

I stamped a flower in black Archival centrally on the kraft squares.  I then used a die and cut a square aperture in the centre of the coloured squares.

I then layered the coloured over the stamped kraft squares.  I stamped 'friend' (Papertrey Ink) in archival black as shown and used some gel pens to colour the central flower and the inner square frames.  I edged with turquoise chalk ink & finished with a fine black Micron pen.

Fly by .... butterfly

Made this Birthday card with a butterfly & who doesn't like a butterfly?

Used a 5 x 7 inch white card base and then diecut some watercolour paper.  I stamped the butterfly (Darkroom Door) in Archival black ink and used Distress ink colours and a waterbrush to colour the image. I thoroughly dried the paper matt and then (using a stamp positioner) overstamped with more Archival black ink and heat embossed with detail clear embossing powder.  The background was coloured with distress ink and some ink was removed by adding water and blotting off with a piece of kitchen roll.  This was then matted onto black card.

The sentiment was stamped in Versafine black ink on white card, trimmed and again matted onto black card.

Both image and sentiment where then applied to the card front on foam pads. three gems were added to finish the card.
