PTI August Blog Hop

I just love the inspiration photo in this month's PTI Blog Hop Challenge. I had just received my Make It Market kit and was itching to ink up the new stamps. The watercolour background is done with distress inks (wet on wet), then a layer of texture paste was added using a stencil from the kit. The flowers were stamped onto watercolour card and then die cut out. The sentiment was stamped onto kraft cardstock and mounted on dimensional tape.  Thanks for dropping by!

PTI Make it Market kit - Garden Gate, Canson watercolour card, Distress inks - Tea Dye, Walnut Stain and Spiced Marmalade, MFT Dienamics rectangle die, Ranger texture paste,

70th Birthday

I'm back with a really CAS masculine 70th birthday card. I was invited by Lyndal last weekend for a Crafty catch up at her place. There were 8 of us crowded around her dining room table and it was a fun day. One of the ladies brought along a book cover vinyl she had purchased from Kmart. A few of us had a go with die cutting the vinyl and I brought some leftovers home to make this card! I've got to go to Kmart to get some more. They will be great for Christmas cards!! I'm adding this card to Paper Smooches Guest Designer Challenge.

Materials used:
Neenah card, ME Happy Die, PS tag and digits stampset and dies, Kaisercraft glitter tape

A Large Flower Stencil

I would like to thank Michelle Lupton for giving this Hero Arts Large Flower stencil! I'm still a bit of a novice to the art of stencilling! I decided to add rainbow colours to this stencil and I really did not wanted the colours to be so strong (reminds me of batik). As I was blending to get a smooth coverage, the colours intensified. I added a spray of Perfect Pearls to give it the glittery translucent effect. I then left this to dry for a couple of days before I decided what to do with it. I decided to glue a panel of the background onto the inside of a card and the same panel was cut from the front of the card. I then cut out 3 'Happy' dies - one white and two black. The diecuts were then adhered together onto the front panel of the card and the sentiment and some sequins added. I'm adding this card to Virginia View Challenge - All About Colours. This post is for A Blog Named Hero's Facebook Fan Page.
Thanks for dropping by!

Materials used: Hero Arts Large Flower stencil and Happy Stamp and Cut
Distress inks - Mustard Seed, Carved Pumpkin, Candied Apple, Wilted Violet. Broken China and Lucky Clover
