Runway Inspired

I had fun making this card. I went hunting for a sea sponge I had from my ceramic painting days and could only find a synthetic one. After wetting the sponge I dabbed it in the Kuretake Gansai Tambi paints and created the background on watercolour card with some splashes of paint in the darkest blue. A couple of exciting purchases arrived yesterday, one of them was a MISTI. I stamped my other new acquisitions from Winnie&Walter using the the MISTI tool and voila! Here is my card inspired by the current Runway Inspired Challenge #80 photo from Nonoo Spring2015 collection. I'm also adding this to Simon Says Stamp Wednesday - Anything Goes challenge.

I'm back!

Finally, after a month off from blogland... I'm back!  I was very tied up with Chinese New Year activities and visitors from interstate and overseas over the past 4 weeks. I had a little bit of spare time today and sneaked into my craft room to produce this card. I have not had a lot of time to play with my new Kuretake Gansai Tambi water colours, so I made up for it today. I embossed the AlteNew Peonies with white EP and painted the colours on. I'd also added the pearl colour over the flowers, love the sheen on it!
I'm adding this card to the following challenges:
CAS(E) this Sketch #114
Virginia View's Challenge - #13 All Things Embossed
Fusion Card Challenge - Floral Fusion
Thanks for dropping by! Can't wait to make more cards very soon!!

Blue Roses

I'm back again with another Sympathy card for a friend who's mother just past away. I wanted to use the PTI roses again having been inspired by Jennifer McGuire, yet again! This card is based on the current CAS(E) this sketch challenge and also the PTI Blue Ombre Challenge. I have not tried this combination of blue inks before and I love it! I used the HA inks Pool, Stone Wash and Navy for the roses and Green Hills and Field Greens for the leaves. Thanks for dropping by!

Engagement Card

I managed to make just ONE card this weekend, right at the stroke of midnight on Sunday night (that's the only time I found all weekend). I based the card on the current Retro Sketch and used the last of my favourite Basic Grey Mint Julep paper and Mama Elephant stamps and die. The tag is from PTI, another favourite! This is an extra large card made for one of my staff at work. Thanks for dropping by!!

A Blue Sympathy card

A card I made recently when I ran out of Sympathy cards and had to make one in a hurry. I used the Floral Fusion and a BluePrint die to create this card. I'm adding this to Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Anything Goes. Thanks for dropping by!
