Marbled Balloons for CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge

Hi All

I want to share a card I recently made for my sister's boyfriend using a marbled card from last month's shaving foam technique class.



The inspiration came from CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge #190 combined with the colouring technique I used for CC&S#188

 


I used the outline balloon stamps from the Balloon Celebration set to create a couple of masks before stamping on the marbled card. I created more depth by using the Aqua Painters to add shadows before colouring the background with Island Indigo marker and drawing the strings using white pigment pen. I then heat embossed the stars randomly in gold as well as adding shimmer on the balloons with a glitter brush pen.




I still have a few of these marbled cards and will share more makes once I think of other ways of using them.

Thanks for stopping by and hope you like the card.

Stampin' with Flower Patch and Wherever You Go

Hi All

I am sharing with you today a couple of cards using the Flower Patch and Wherever You Go sets from Stampin' Up! 

From my last post, I was inspired by my sister's wedding bouquet and loved the effect so much I created some more using the Flower Fair dies.


I used the Layering Circles die to emboss the base card before stamping and decorating with the flowers. Sentiments used are from Wetlands and Thankful Thoughts.


I used daubers and cotton buds to colour the inside of the flowers then finishing off with the pearls and gold metallic thread.


I was very pleased with these cards and surprised how the vanilla base card made the flowers pop even more.


Thanks for stopping by and I hope you like the cards. Contact us if you have any questions regarding the products used which are available on our Online Store.

CAS Colours & Sketches 189

UPDATE: Alas I was too late :( hopefully next week I will be on time submitting my link.

Hi All

A really quick post to enter my card for Challenge 189 at CAS Colours & Sketches.



Using the above colours with the Flower Fair framelits, I tried re-creating flowers from my sister's wedding bouquet. I really like how they've turned out and will try and do more soon.


Thank you for stopping by
