Hello there and I'm a bit late in the day for this but
Here I've used another NBUS set - this time from Altenew: Magnolias For Her.
I started out by blending distress inks onto the top corner of the card, fading it out
before spritzing a little water for some added interest. The magnolias are heat-embossed
onto vellum then coloured using my Derwent Coloursoft pencils.
The sentiment is from Clearly Besotted: Say it In Style and to finish sparkly sequins
from Pretty Pink Posh just because I love them!
I'm hoping the raised vellum blooms, sequins and 'feel' better sentiment will
work over at Simon Says Stamp!
Next up I've gone all Geometric which means I'd like to add this
over at Inkspirational - in fact the last card is also on a geometric
spectrum but I think I prefer this one - don't you?
I started out doing more inky blending in an ombre style using distress inks
in Blueprint Sketch, Mermaid Lagoon, Salty Ocean and Broken China.
Once I was happy with the blending I used a bokeh stencil from Simon Says Stamp
and re-inked in the various colours through the circles. A little spritz of perfect pearls
with water just because I can't stop myself then I decided to slice the panel
into 3 triangles for added effect! Just another geometric shape eh!
To finish a heat-embossed sentiment from Uniko: Simply Said Birthday plus
some Doodlebug Sprinkles and silver pearls from my stash.
Last up and I can admit I've gone crazy over Faux Mother of Pearl and
I've so many bits and pieces of various colours that I'll never
manage to use them all - BUT it's such fun playing isn't it!
So this one is heading across to Happy Little Stampers - CAS Challenge
and having created my Faux Mother of Pearl Panel with Liquid Pearls
and Distress inks I've sliced it into squares using the MFT Die-namics
stitched square dies. A bold 'thanks' sentiment which is die-cut 3 times
from WPlus9 and some sequins from Lucy Abrams to finish it off.
Ok that's all for me this weekend and it's work tomorrow so think I
should be making a move to bed soon!
Thanks for calling by and I'll catch up with you again soon.
