Acetate take 2

Alcohol ink on acetate panel, dry embossed rectangle, die-cut in copper metallic card, heat embossed sentiment in copper. I'm hoping to make one more card using acetate and a technique I haven't made before.

Thanks so much for visiting my blog!

I created the ombre background using a sparkle pen, brush and water.  Hopefully you can see the sparkle in this photo.

Poinsettia Christmas card

Inspired by the  Merry Monday photo.

I heat embossed in platinum, watercoloured and added gloss to the berries. It was the first day of Spring here in UK a couple of days ago, but with the 'Beast from the East' and Storm Emma etc it seems more like Christmas!

Using canvas - take 2

Another card using canvas, using a similar technique as the first, but after I made the distress crayon background, I stamped the text with archival ink and then used a stencil and baby wipe to create the flower pattern. This technique is new to me and quite easy to do.

The canvas piece was die cut and placed inside a deckle die cut aperture, backed with a dry embossed panel.

Using canvas

Inspired by the theme at CAS Mix Up which is Cork, Felt or Canvas + Stamping + Your Choice

I rubbed various distress crayons onto a piece of canvas and blended with my finger, then placed a stencil over the top and rubbed over with a baby wipe. It didn't quite come out as I hoped but I was happy with the effect.
