More Watercolour Play

This is a card I made before WCMD which I did not have a chance to blog. When I saw that this week's SSS Wednesday challenge is 'Watercolour'.... here it is! I used distress inks to ink up the stamp, then stamped onto watercolour paper, added a brush with water and let the magic happen! Thanks for dropping by!

Seeing Red

This is another card I made on my WCMD weekend away. We were thrilled that Chupa joined us on the last day of our weekend and she brought all her Penny Black and WPlus9 stamps. We were lucky to be the first ones to try one of the new WPlus9 Christmas collection! I've made this card for Catered Crop's Seeing Red Challenge. Thanks for dropping by!

Masculine Birthday Cards

Back again with a couple of cards I made on our Crafting WCMD weekend using borrowed stamps from Lyndal and Jenny. The first one is made with Hero Arts stamps and the second with Mama Elephant sentiment stamp. This first card is for the Mixed Media Vintage Challenge.



This second card is for someone younger. A bit of stencilling with and embossing with my newest favourite EP from Ranger. This platinum colour was out of stock for a long time and I finally got a jar of it at last! Now I understand why Jennifer McGuire love it!! The sentiment is from Mama Elephant and I'm adding this card to ME's October Anything Goes challenge and Virginia's View Challenge - Clean and Simple.
Thanks for dropping by!

World Card Making Day 2014

It took us a little while to try and get 5 people together for a Crafting weekend. At the last minute we decided that the first weekend in October suited 3 of us and it happened to coincide with World Card Making Day on 4th October. Lyndal and I drove down to Queenscliff, about 1.5 hours drive from Melbourne to Jenny's beach house. As we came down after work we were a bit tired to start crafting. After a caffeine kick on Saturday we were off. It was so good to try out each other's stamp and die collection. Initially, our theme was Christmas but we got side-tracked with other challenges and DT work (not photographed by the way). Our tally on Saturday night was 15 cards. We were joined by Chupa on Sunday morning. We were excited to meet her family but we were more excited when we saw her WPlus9 and PB stash! Sadly it all had to end Sunday afternoon. Final tally was 29 cards with Chupa managing to make one in the morning! About a third of the cards were Christmas ones. Thank you to Jenny for hosting and Lyndal and Chupa for use of your collections!

This first card was made on Sunday morning when I decided to join in on Festive Friday's #41 challenge (inspiration photo below). Lyndal and Jenny had both made cards the day before using the same MFT Dienamics Winter Wreath die. It is great to see how we all had interpreted the same challenge and came up with three different cards! I'm too tired to blogged the rest of the cards, I will be adding them later this week! Thanks for dropping by. I've added some photos I took below .

Rainbow Feathers

A quick card for today's post. I had an idea to do this as soon as I saw the sketch on CAS(E) This Sketch this week. Took me a while to find a bit of time in my Craft Room to finally get done. The images were stamped with distress inks and then sprayed with water. Love the magic with water and distress inks on water colour paper! I'm also adding this card to Simon Says Stamp Wednesday - Anything Goes! Thanks for dropping by!

Persian Market

It's been a while since I've inked up any stamps! Here is one that I made a while ago for a publication submission but was not picked up. This was the first time I had stamped up my new AlteNew Persian Motifs! I just love the designs coloured in with Copic markers! I'm adding this card to Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Anything Goes challenge. Thanks for dropping by! I'm looking forward to a Crafty weekend next week with some Crafting buddies!!

Wine label card 4

Another wine label card to add to my collection. I've made a series of these cards and each one is slightly different. I've made this using distress inks on water colour paper, wetting just the watercolour paper and not the wine label. Love this effect! I'm adding this card to Simon Says Stamp - Make your own background challenge. Thanks for dropping by!
