This panel has been created using Glossy cardstock and Alcohol Inks. Apply your colours randomly using the applicator and then start to stamp. Use Archival inks in different shades with your foliage stamps to create some depth and then stamp on your main designs using black. A few white highlights with a white sharpie pen and a little stickles to add some sparkle adds the finishing touches. The sparkle greeting is a Wow stamp set – Born to Sparkle.
This panel has been created using Alcohol Inks in a mix of rich oranges and reds. I’ve applied the ink using the applicator to glossy card and then sprayed it with Stazon Spray stamp cleaner. The cleaner is how I achieve all the white speckles (don’t spray Blending solution as it is flammable!).
The flowers and side pattern are from the Kim Dellow PaperArtsy stamp set – EKD04 – a fabulous bold flower design which has dots that I’ve accented with Stickles and then added some white highlights with my white sharpie pen.
The make a wish is from the ELB28 Lin Brown PaperArtsy set – a favourite of mine as I love my sayings! This is a nice, quick easy project to make – as the designs are so fabulous you don’t need to add a lot of detail to make an eye-catching design.
We don’t sell our alcohol inks online (due to postage restrictions) – but we have a huge range of colours available in the shop!
I always recommend stamping your focal point first. so in this case it was the house – otherwise it’s very easy to add your foliage into the design and run out of room for your main image! I’ve added some Stickles to the fairy’s wings and then used my white pen to add the fairy dust they are sprinkling (with more stickles!) I’ve added lots of white highlights using the White Sharpie pen to bring it to life.
We stock a huge range of Lavinia Stamps designs – they are great fun to play with!
Time to have a play with some Jofy stamps from PaperArtsy. This is the JOFY42 set and features this fun quirky girl and her chum. I’ve embossed all the designs first using black powder before adding my colour with Koi pens and a waterbrush to give a shaded look.
This project has been created using the Stampendous matching butterfly stamps and dies along with their pop-up die. This makes it so easy to create these pop-up designs as it cuts the mechanism for you and you just decorate it.
This simple card starts an an A4 card, with a third trimmed off and then cut with the pop-up die. Then I’ve stamped the Butterfly Trio stamps, coloured with Koi Pens and then cut out with the dies (no staying within the lines – easy colouring as you are cutting out!).
This project was created for one of my club night make and takes. The flower is Chocolate Baroque Swirl Centre Flower and I have embossed it in silver and then coloured in blue using my Koi pens. The flower has then been cut out. The background is a simple silver embossed with Chocolate Baroque Studded Lattice stamp. I’ve then cut out a mount of card out of white and coloured the edge with my Koi pens to match and mounted onto a 5×7 card. The greeting a Kaisercraft stamp from my stash and is also embossed in silver and coloured with Koi pens.
I’ve made lots of cards using the Stampendous Bird Blossom matching stamps and dies. This little bird can be coloured in so many different ways to appear to be a particular bird, or you can make up your colours as I did.
Everything featured on this 8×8 card is on the same stamp set. The lovely blossom is great to stamp, colour and layer up on your projects.
This has been coloured using the Koi Brush pens. So easy to blend your colours together.
