I’ve kept it nice and CAS this week with my card and added some simple Copic colouring.  I love this cute little Tiny Trailer stamp from Stampendous – I can imagine heading off to a wee music festival in this!!!  The gorgeous sentiment is from Altenew stamp set called Floral Frame and it’s just gorgeous!

Water Colouring with Distress Oxides and a video!

Hello – I’m popping in with a rare post that has nothing to do with a design team!!  I don’t often get time to make cards other than for the design teams I’m on (Avery Elle and Simon Says Stamp) but today this card is a “just for fun” card using a stamp set called Hello Lovely by Concord & 9th that I’ve been coveting for AGES!!

At the same time as getting this set I also got other happy mail in the form of my latest order from Simon Says Stamp and in it there were some DISTRESS OXIDE INKS!  Yes, been dying to get hold of these since I saw them at CHA in January.  So anyway, here’s a couple of cards I’ve made with this stamp set.  The first uses the Distress Oxides as a water colouring medium (LOVE) and on the second I kept it simple and coloured just part of the design using a couple of Zig Clean Colour Real Brush Markers.  I even created a video too!!

So I bought this set months ago and it’s been sitting there crying out to be inked ever since!  I LOVE the modern, graphic style of the flowers and the larger scale is fabulous.  I used Altenew’s crisp inks for the design and double stamped with the MISTI to get really gorgeous, flawless results with the colour.  Te sentiment is from the Label Love set – one of my favourites at the moment – SO useful!

I recently picked up a stunning set of watercolours from Simon Says Stamp – the Zig Kuretake Gansai Tambi 36 colour set.  WOW – they are SO pretty to look at, I just fell in love with them.  What I really liked about this set is the addition of the metallics and pearl palettes – so lovely.  A new addition to my stamp collection is the Altenew Persian Motifs set – they are screaming to be water coloured so that’s what I did!!
