Technique – ink blending

Featuring ink blending

Autumn Bounty

Hi everyone!

Today I’m playing along with the Card Concept challenge.

They have a beautiful autumn scene for their inspiration – I was particularly drawn to the colours of the hydrangea flowers – mine are just like that right now. I love that hydrangea flowers are so pretty even after their summer moment of glory! Anyway, here is my card using dies by Memory Box, Concord & 9th and Penny Black.

Ghost Hugs

Happy Halloween everyone!

Here’s a quick card I made with the My Favorite Things Fab-boo-lous Friends stamp set and a wonderful background die by Winnie & Walter. I’ve been very drawn to cards with bright pink backgrounds recently so I HAD to do one of my own!

Thanks for stopping by!

Multi coloured pumpkins

Hi everyone!

Today I’m playing along with the sketch challenge at the CAS Colours and Sketches challenge.

A few weeks ago, some amazing pumpkin shaped cookies popped up on my Instagram feed. The icing colours were fabulous so I saved the image, planning to use it at some point this autumn. When I saw the sketch challenge, I knew it was time to roll out those pumpkins and my distress inks! I used the Pumpkins and Gourds dies by Poppystamps. The sentiment is also by Poppystamps.

Monster Boo!

Hi there!

It’s been a while since I played along with a Case This Sketch challenge and so I decided to hop back into the challenge this week!

I used the brand new Whittle Monsters by Poppystamps. You see that little green monster? He is the whole reason I bought this die set! The set contains a cat as well, but I felt a ghost would be better in my scene here so I added one from my Whittle Ghost set. I created the background using distress oxide inks and a Hero Arts background stamp spritzed with water and the wooded frame is by Memory Box.

Blue and Beige Vase

Hi everyone!

Today I’m playing along with the colour challenge at the CAS Colours and Sketches challenge.

I used a Taylored Expressions stencil for the oval and added die cuts by Simply Graphic and Altenew. The Altenew vase is cut from a piece of my beloved Basic Grey paper! The sentiment is from a very versatile Mama Elephant set.

Cranberry Cardinals

Hello again everyone!

Today I’m playing along with the Color Throwdown! The palette this week is kraft, cream and cranberry.

I immediately thought of a winter card when I saw the colour combo so I decided to play along with the CAS Christmas card challenge as well because the challenge theme this month is Christmas birds.

I used a older Memory Box die (Hadyn Twigs) and the cardinals from the Simon Says Stamp Chisholm wreath set. I used Fired Brick and Barn Door distress ink to colour the cardinals. They still look more red than cranberry in this photo though!

I added lots of Nuvo drops and a Hero Arts sentiment to complete my take.

Thanks for stopping by!
