    GD CAS watercolour: poppy reminder

    Hi friends It’s reminder time at the CAS Watercolor Challenge – and here is my card. Again I used the clearly besotted poppy stamp set and my zig clean colour real brush markers and used distress oxide inks to create the background. The heat embossed sentiment is one of my favourites from Heffy Doodle I hope you will join us at the challenge.

    GD CAS Watercolour: Poppy

    Hi friendsI’m absolutely thrilled to have been asked to be a guest designer at CAS watercolour this month. For my first card using the theme poppy I created this card using clearly besotted stamps. I used my zig clean colour real brush markers to add the colour to my flowers and background. I added a simple white heat embossed sentiment, some white highlights to the flowers and a couple of jewels. I hope you like my card and will join us this month. Can’t wait to see what you create.

    You are Turtley Awesome

Firstly I found this fab stamp by Mama Elephant called modern borders, it may be retired now, and thought the scallop would make a great looking sea. I used my tim holtz stamping platform to help stamp my ‘sea’ with Altenew inks in shades of blue. Next I stamped my turtle with memento tuxedo black ink which is Copic friendly, fussy cut it and did some quick and easy colouring. Then I trimmed down my scallop panel and used my tim holtz knife to create little flaps around the waves…

    Happy Penguins

    Hi Sorry I have been MIA lately, had a lovely holiday with my hubby in Vancouver (our first in seven years!)

I wanted this to be a one layer card but unfortunately the copics bled through my card stock. I masked my Penguins and the balloon and did a little bit…
