If you follow my blog, you know I love cats – so I just had to colour this cute kitty like my cat Mack. I coloured him with Copics and added some detail with Prismacolor pencils.

Penny Black and July PageMaps

simplicity sister

This month I had the privilege of using some Penny Black products and created a card for the PageMaps July card sketch.

july15_7x5d_sm

In order to follow the sketch, but avoid an overly busy card, I created a lot of subtle textures using some Penny Black stencils. Both the pattern on the butterfly and the chevrons in the background were created by running the stencil through my Cuttlebug with a rubber embossing mat. The blue dots were created with a stencil and coloured embossing paste.

You are a Blessing – Jane’s Doodles

Jane's Doodle Banner

Today I’m sharing a card using some Jane’s Doodles stamps. I kept things pretty simple with this one. The flowers are coloured with Copics and then I added some Wink of Stella glitter brush pen for some shimmer. To ground the flowers, I added a couple of strips of patterned paper. For something different, I used some leather grain card stock for the card base.

You can find the post here on the Jane’s Doodles blog.

Happy Birthday – Penny Black

simplicity sister

Today I have a colourful card showcasing some Penny Black products. I started by stamping the hexagon stamp from the Penny Black Textures stamp set repeatedly down a piece onto watercolour paper. I then heat embossed it with white embossing powder. Next was the fun part – I went to town with a rainbow of Distress Ink colours, a paintbrush and some water.

Happy Birthday - Penny Black | Marion Vagg

I did some partial stamping to create the sentiment. The Happy is from the Sprinkles and Smiles stamp set and the Birthday is from the Good Day stamp set.

Jane’s Doodles Release Blog Hop

Jane's Doodle Banner

Today I am taking part in the Jane’s Doodles release blog hop. Three new sets have been released into the store.

Anemone

Under the Sea

Winnie Halloween

First up I have made a card using the Anemone stamp set. I am really into adding texture with embossing paste at the moment. It creates subtle interest in background for a focal point. I coloured the white embossing paste with Antique Linen Distress ink. The Anemone is coloured with Copics and a Prismacolor pencil.

Next up is a cute whale from the Under the Sea set (which is out of stock, but it can be pre-ordered). To create the background, I blended in some Salty Ocean distress ink and then created the splatters with some water and had a paper towel on hand to mop up the moisture – removing some of the colour.

Speaking of whales, there are a lot of them migrating north at the moment along the east coast of Australia. The kids and I went looking for them this afternoon and I did manage to catch a glimpse of one. Amazing creatures.
