Technique – colouring

Featuring colouring other than watercolouring

Happy Owl

Hi everyone!

I love participating in sketch challenges as they often push me beyond my CAS comfort zone… and I also find that I can use up some of my very neglected patterned paper mountain at the same time!

Today’s card is for the current My Favorite Things sketch challenge – I’ve paired MFT stamps with dies from Simon Says Stamp and Memory Box on this card. And I’ve been able to use some of my patterned paper (from My Mind’s Eye). Woo hoo indeed!

Thanks for looking!

A floral hello

Happy Saturday!

I’ve been practising my no-lines colouring today. I stamped the gorgeous floral bouquet image from Avery Elle in Antique Linen distress ink and then used my Twinkling H2Os to colour the image.

I cut a frame using a die from My Favorite Things and added a sentiment die from Avery Elle and a smattering of gold stickles to finish off the card.

I’m entering this into the current Color Throwdown challenge (coral, green and yellow) and the Flower challenge (anything goes).

Thanks for looking!

You’re so wise

Hello everyone!

When I saw Barb’s guest post for Technique Tuesday a few weeks ago, I just HAD to have the sweet owl stamp. It landed on my doormat yesterday and I inked it up straight away!

I coloured it using my Twinkling H2Os and added a touch of Nuvo Aqua Glimmer Gloss for extra shimmer. I then masked off the image and used a stencil from The Crafter’s Workshop to anchor the little owl. Finally I added a cute sentiment from My Favorite Things.

Thanks for looking!

Beautiful day

Hi everyone! I’ve just found a great new-to-me challenge – the Retro Rubber challenge where we have to use a stamp that is least a year old! I still love using my old wood block rubber stamps and so I think I’ll be entering the challenge quite a bit in future!

Anyway, on to today’s card – I used a flower stamp from Magenta and a sentiment from Amuse Art Studio. Neither of them have dates on them but I think I’ve had them both for 7 years or so!

I’m entering this into the Case This Sketch challenge and also the Retro Rubber challenge.

Thanks for stopping by!

Makes my heart sing

Hi there!

I’ve been trying to use the Purr-fect Friends stamp set from My Favorite Things for quite a while – and finally did today. I used images from the set together with two stencils by My Favorite Things to create this card (The sky/cloud inking on the window background is soft and so didn’t really show up in my photos unfortunately!).

Anyway, I’m entering today’s card into two challenges – My Favourite Things Sketch challenge and the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge (Furry Friends).

Thanks for stopping by!
