Flourishing Vase

Today I am showcasing a card I created using my A6 Stamp "Flourishing Vase" #213, from AALLandCreate. Our stockists can be found HERE.
I created a blended backdrop for my focal image, blending Shaded Lilac, Wilted Violet and Broken China Distress Oxide Inks across my card.
I spritzed the Lotza Dotz Stencil with water and then lay the stencil down onto my card and allowed the water to sit for a few moments so that it reacted with the Oxide Inks and I then removed the stencil and allowed the water to dry naturally.
I also incorporated some doodling to draw the eye into the focal image. I also added further dimension to the pot and the flower heads.
Thanks so much for visiting. Tracy x x

Today Is A New Beginning

Today I am showcasing a card I created using my A6 Stamp "Flourishing Vase" #213, from AALLandCreate. Our stockists can be found HERE.
I created a simple backdrop using the Lotza Dotz Stencil and Wilted Violet Distress Oxide Ink. I love the background and sometimes you don't need to over complicate things. I also added a spotlight for my focal image, again using Wilted Violet Distress Oxide Ink.
I added some dimension to my pot and also my flowers, colouring a piece of white card with Distress Oxide Inks for the flowers and the pot I used a scap of a brayered background.
The sentiment was also stamped onto a scrap of card. The touches of yellow you can see in the background were from colour left on the stencil from a previous project.

Eclectic Stem

Today I am showcasing a card I created as one of my demo pieces from a few shows I have attended around the country, using my A5 Stamp "Eclectic Stems" #199, from AALLandCreate. Our stockists can be found HERE.
This background was created simply from cleaning my Gel Press from a previous card and I have to say I adore the outcome. It looks like worn wallpaper to me and something I would like to repeat. It's not really possible to create a background exactly the same but something similar is achievable .
Once again I have use PaperArtsy Fresco Finish Paints Sugar Plum, Lake Winaka and Sour Grapes for my background . At the moment these are a firm favoourite.
I added touches of Cheesecloth and random cut out pieces of card to ground my flower and I included a banner sentiment.
I clear embossed my flower and also incorporated a jump ring to the centre for added interest.
Thanks so much for stopping by. Tracy x x

Wishing You Happy Everything

Today I am showcasing a card I created as one of my demo pieces from a few shows I have attended around the country, using my A5 Stamp "Eclectic Stems" #199, from AALLandCreate. Our stockists can be found HERE.
I have really enjoyed the past few projets I have created and I am now officially in love with the colour purple in my artwork. Isn't it funny how we change from one month to the next with the things we love and for me my choice of colour schemes changes as much as the weather!!
I created my background by applying Broken China, Shaded Lilac and Wilted Violet Distress Oxide Inks to my non-stick craft sheet, spritzing with water and then mopping up the beads of ink with my card. I repeated this process about 5 times, spritzing the ink in between applications with water.
I used the little daisy stamp from my A5 Stamp "Eclectic Stems" stamping the daisy stem with VersaFine Clair Monarch, Distress Oxide Wilted Violet and VersaFine Clair Noctorne. Stamping in different inks and shades gives depth and dimension to the design.
Very difficult to see in the pictures but I did add a few touches of glitter to give a touch of sparkle to my design. I also included some vintage book pages from a vintage gardening book.
A few delicate splatters of white paint add a further layer of interest.

Flower Stems

Today I am showcasing a card I created as one of my demo pieces from a few shows I have attended around the country, using my A5 Stamp "Hope" #200, from AALLandCreate. Our stockists can be found HERE.
My Gel Press is getting a lot of use just lately and I have to say I am really enjoying the process of just creating backgrounds and I am loving some of the results.

This background was created with PaperArtsy Fresco Finish Paints in Sour Grapes, Lake Winaka and Sugar Plum and I have to say I adore these colours together.
I love the fact that the Fresco Finish Paints dry a little quicker on the Gel Press so give me some white open areas in my design which I find really pleasing to the eye.
Torn Parchment has been included to house my sentiment and to add a touch more texture. I have also added a touch of stamping to the bottom of my card using the little daisy stamp from my other A5 Stamp Set "Eclectic Stems" #199.
I applied the Fresco Finish Paints to my Gel press then went back and added touches of the Lake Winaka to the Gel Press and lightly touched my card onto the Gel Press to achieve just a light touch of the colour.
I also used the Lotza Dotz stencil to give a further layer of interest in my background. Laying the stencil onto the painted backdrop on my Gel Press.

Create Your Own Magic

Today I am showcasing a card I created as one of my demo pieces from a few shows I have attended around the country, using my A5 Stamp "Eclectic Stems" #199, from AALLandCreate. Our stockists can be found HERE.
I am really pleased with the way this one turned out.  I applied Shaded Lilac, Wilted Violet and Broken China Distress Oxides to my 5" x 7" Gel Press and added a few drops of Infusions into the mix to give me a fabulous backdrop.
I added a spotlight for my focal image and also included some doodling and I echoed this doodling around the outside edges of my card.
My flower has been stamped onto a background blended with Distress Oxide Inks, stamped and then cut out.
I added a touch of delicate background stamping using my well loved background stamp "Background Mashup" #210.

Wishing You Happy Everything

Today I am showcasing a card I created as one of my demo pieces from a few shows I have attended around the country, using my A5 Stamp "Eclectic Stems" #199, from AALLandCreate. Our stockists can be found HERE.
I created my backdrop with Distress Oxides Broken China, Shaded Lilac and Wilted Violet. I love the blend of colours. I then spritzed the Lotza Dotz stencil with water and then placed the stencil water side down onto the ink. I allowed the ink to sit for a few moments and then removed the stencil.
I added a spotlight for my focal image and incorporated some doodly lines for added interest and to draw the eye into the focal image.
I also doodled a few lines around the outside edge of my card with a white gel pen which also helps to draw the eye into the focal image.
I bent the flower a little to give shape and movement and also incorporated some vintage book pages. Further dimension has been added with a decorative bead to the centre of the flower.
