W plus 9

Berry Happy Wishes

Hello friends!

Today, I’m playing along with the current Color Throwdown Challenge which has another super combo – purple, lavender and green.

Now you know I always struggle with lavender – the colours I use never really turn out the right way and never look like lavender should…. Today I just decided to use my new Milled Lavender oxide spray and a Bright Rosa stencil and hoped for the best – it’s still not as deep as I’d like BUT I do think it looks quite lavender-esque!!

I cut the largest stem from the Bright Rosa Foliage Sprigs die set and coloured it with my Twinkling H2Os and then added a ton of Tonic Nuvo glitter drops. I layered the die cut onto two other die cuts to give it a bit of extra dimension and adhered it to my stencilled panel. To complete my card, I added a sentiment from W Plus 9.

Thanks for stopping by!



Merry Making – Wrap Up Day Coloured Cards

I love that Online Card Classes always include more techniques on their wrap up days and this class was no different! I will be trying them all at some point and will hopefully update this post when I do so.

In the meantime, I chose to start with Kelly Latevola’s card where she combined distress oxide inks with coloured pencils! Parts of this card were totally outside my comfort zone (loose water colouring, anyone?) but I totally loved making this!

I used the gorgeous W Plus 9 Christmas Rose stamp and a selection of my favourite distress oxide colours. It was fun to watercolour with them. I loved the effect created after the distress oxide was down, and was quite nervous about the coloured pencils, but I like the effect – more practice needed again, of course, but still great fun!

I finished off the card with some splatters of gold perfect pearls and sentiments from Simon Says Stamps!
