Watercolour Flowers

I’ve not really done much water colouring but after watching a few videos on YouTube I had a go. I picked up a few tips and this was my first attempt on watercolour card. I used a small palette I already had plus my Twinkling H2O’s.

The main tip I saw was to lay water down on the pre stamped Versamark and white embossed image before adding the colour. I’m very pleased with the result so will be practicing more in future as I think water coloured flowers look beautiful.

Lilac Fairies

I’m really into my pinks, lilacs and greens at the moment – it helps having embellishments like Nuvo Drops, Shimmer Powders and Distress Oxides all in those colours as I then have a selection of similar colours to use. This is the front, inside left and inside right of the same card. I used Tim Holtz Distress Oxide for the front background and various rubber stamps. The insert and die cuts are from a Hunkydory kit.

Pixie Dust

Large topper made using Creative Expressions Craft Cosmic Coloured Pixie Dust (appropriate for a pixie card!) in Rich Gold on top of Tonic Studios Nuvo Shimmer Powder Cherry Bomb. The Pixie toppers are from Hunkydory. I die cut a fairy (don’t know what make) and finished off with letters and Tonic Studios Nuvo Drops in Ebony Black and Pink Champagne. I will share the finished card when I make it up as the Nuvo Drops will have dried differently.

Neverending Card

My first attempt at a neverending card with the kit free with @papercraftermag. Could drive you crackers! I decorated it with the toppers and stamps in the kit plus a few stickers I already had. Will definitely make another one / I love unusual shaped cards 💙

Dawn Bibby Fantasy Flowers – a selection

I have made a few more cards from Dawn Bibby’s Fantasy Flowers kit. I haven’t added sentiments yet as I haven’t decided which to use. The two easel cards were made by cutting just the top layer, the pink one on both sides and the mauve one just on one side. I then stuck the small cut pieces to the base, scored the part that was left and folded it over to make the easel. The blue card has another card facing the other way inside it. I’m going to put something like WISHING YOU … on the front, A VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY … on the inside white page, then TO A SPECIAL FRIEND ….. on the final inside page.

Dawn Bibby Fantasy Flowers Kit card 1

My first card made from my @dawnbibbycreations Fantasy Flowers kit from @createandcrafttv. Beautiful colours and great quality. As usual finished it off with highlights of @tonicstudios #nuvodrops in the same colour to match
