Over the last year I have created lots of cards, here are some of my favourites.
Jar of flowers
This card showcases the 'spotlight' colouring technique and uses the wonderful blending brushes and some simple masking to create the band of colour on the card base.
Items used - ink pads, watercolour pencils, blending brushes, Jar of flowers stamp set, Jar punch.
Welcoming window at the beach
This card features dsp (designer series paper) from the Sand and sea collection and has been torn to create the look of waves breaking on the beach. The window pieces, the jug of flowers and the sentiment panel have al been die cut.
Items used - Ink pads, cardstock, Sand and sea dsp, Welcoming window bundle, Tasteful labels dies.
Stitched leaves sympathy
I love the simplicity of this card which has been created using layers of colour and white. The leaf has been die cut out of the top layer, a stitched detail shows all around the outer edge. There is vellum in between the coloured and white layer which has the leaf vein detail.
Items used - ink pad, cardstock, vellum, Stitched leaves dies.
Whale of a time
This card is all about adding colour and stamping. The background has been watercolored using water painters and ink pads on watercolour paper.
Items used - ink pads, cardstock, watercolour paper, water painters, Whale of a time bundle.
This trio of small square cards have been very simply stamped using different colours and a variety of sentiments. Each card has a main colour which is used for the stamping and middle layer and a lighter complimentary colour for the bottom layer.
Items used - ink pads, cardstock, Forever fern, Stitched shapes dies (retired)
I hope you have liked looking at a few of my recent cards made, you may have noticed I really like using square card bases, most of my cards are either 6 or 4 inches square.
I will be back soon with my first post using something from the new catalogue. I can't wait to share it with you.
