Waves of Inspiration for #GDP442

Inspiration can come to us from anywhere and the inspiration for this card began with a scrap piece of stamping where I was just trying out some colours. This scrap looked so good that I wanted to recreate it for a card and the background of this project came to be.

I used the smooshed image from the Perched in a Tree stamp set and inked it up with Fresh Freesia ink. Then I spritzed the stamp with water before stamping. This created a watercoloured look. I repeated this a few times. As I was using Basic White Carstock I was careful not to oversaturate the image, yet keeping the fluidity of it.

I’ve followed the sketch at Global Design Project #gdp422.

The pelican was stamped in Early Espresso ink and I added a hint of shading with Crushed Curry and Gorgeous Grape Watercolour Pencils. The lovely large leaf in the centre is from the new Thoughtful Wishes dies. It was perfect for sitting across the card so I could add the pelican on top of it.

Some additional pieces of DSP and a heat embossed sentiment complete this card. The Waves of Inspiration stamp and coordinating dies and the Perched in a Tree stamp set are all retiring on the 30th of April. Get your favourite products before they leave.

Aussie Christmas Day 22 – 30 Day Christmas CardMaking Challenge

When I saw the colour challenge for the #30DayChristmasCardMakingChallenge I immediately thought of summer. Living in Melbourne, we generally get to have a warm Christmas and I chose to feature the Sunkissed stamp set.

This stamp set is perfect for our Aussie Christmases with it’s beachy images. I repeatedly stamped the small shell image on Shimmer White Cardstock. Then I did some simple watercolouring with our challenge colours of Parakeet Party, Tahitian Tide and Daffodil Delight. This formed a border for my slimline card.

For the top half of the card, I chose a large sentiment from the Brightest Glow stamp set which was heat embossed in White. Some gold ribbon was added to make this card a little more festive whilst looking summery.

The Sunkissed stamp set is on our Last Chance List which is effective 1st December. If you love it then add it to your order today. Last Chance products are only available while supplies last.

Just Add Ink Colour Challenge #613

For today’s card I’ve been inspired by the Colour Challenge at Just Add Ink with a beautiful colour palette of Mint Macaron, Fresh Freesia and Starry Sky.

I went bold by blending Starry Sky on Basic White Cardstock for my matte layer. A wave and some dots were heat embossed in white to compliment the shell. I used my Stamparatus (our stamp positioning tool) to stamp the wave as I only wanted to stamp part of the image and it allowed me to re-stamp should I have needed to.

The shell was watercoloured with Fresh Freesia and Starry Sky. I inked up a Clear Block which acted as my palette. I find that this method gives me more control for watercolouring.

The leaves were coloured with Mint Macaron Stampin’ Blends, providing a soft contrast against the bold background.

If you would like to get started with watercolouring, I’ve put together a pack that gets you the basics. It’s a great time to get started with July being World Watercolouring Month. This pack is customisable to suit your crafting needs. Click on the image to order and amend as required.
