I am entering this card in the current Inkspirational Challenge #219 with the theme of face. I have three super cute giraffe images from A Day for Daisies and as they are digital I can resize them. I enlarged this one so it took the central feature of the card.Continue reading

Fall in Love…
Just a quick card post today. As it’s the middle of winter here in the Southern Hemisphere I found the Color Throwdown challenge colours would be perfect for this card.
I had found the perfect wintery image in my stash of Unity Stamp Company Kit of the Month Sept 2016 ‘Moments between Moments‘. I stamped it in the three colours of the challenge in Distress Ink first and then used my water brush to soften and spread the colours. The white was the card base. As I had used my MISTI to stamp the image and had left the stamp in place, once I was happy with the colours I placed the card back into my MISTI and restamped with Versafine Onyx Black. I deepened some of the shading with watered down distress ink then stamped the sentiment in Versamark and heat embossed with Zing Metallic Blue.
And that’s it…☺.

Stamping Bella Beauties
I’m really loving the Stamping Bella images from the Danielle Donaldson collection. They are so lovely to colour and I’ve matched them with some Unity Stamp Company sentiments.
All the images are coloured with Derwent Inktense Pencils on Fabriano Artistico EW watercolour paper. I used Clarity Stencil Brushes and Altenew Crisp Dye Inks to blend the backgrounds over Kaisercraft and Faber Castell stencils. I selected each stencil by matching an element of the image and using complementary colours.
I wanted to add a few extra details to the images so on two of them I added white gel pen dots.
This one I added Wink of Stella shimmer pen and a touch of matching gel pen to the bow.
Finally I used my Brother Scan n Cut to fussy cut each image and used adhesive foam (tape and squares) to create some dimension.
Such fun…more to come.
