Gladsome Flowers – Penny Black

Hi friends! Over the next couple of days I have some cards to share with you made with Penny Black products from their recent Bliss release.

Today I have three cards I have made with the Gladsome stamp. This is a beautiful floral image that can be coloured with a variety of different media.

First up I have coloured these flowers with Copic markers and then cut out around the floral images and popped them up on some foam tape. The background is a wash of Salty Ocean Distress ink and some paint splattering. The sentiment is from the All Great Things Stamp set.

The next two cards are very similar, I just coloured the floral images this time with Gansai Tambi watercolour paints. Once they was dry, I added a little bit more contrast to the images with some Prismacolor pencils. I just love the texture of the watercolour paper.

Just For You – Jane’s Doodles

Jane's Doodle Banner I have a card over on the Jane’s Doodle blog today. This card took a very direction to what I intended, but sometimes you just have to roll with it and see where creativity leads you.

The flowers are from the Anemone stamp set and the sentiment is from the Doodle Flowers set. I coloured the flower with cool grey Copic marker tones then fussy cut the images. I embossed an MFT frame in the background using an embossing mat, then did some ink splatters to add interest. The leaves are a Penny Black creative die and are cut from some green vellum I discovered in my recent move!

Supplies

Stamps: Jane’s Doodles Anemone and Doodle Flowers stamp set

Card: X-Press It blending card

Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black ink, VersaFine Onyx Black ink

Other Supplies: Copic Markers (C1, C3, C4, C7), Penny Black Leaves Creative die, MFT Stitched Rectangle die, Cuttlebug, Spellbinder tan embossing mat, Green Vellum, Paintbrush (for ink splatters), Memento marker – Onyx Black

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you are having a great week.

Featured Artist – Tag You’re It #67

I am really honoured to be the Featured Artist over on the Tag You’re It challenge blog for their 67th challenge. A big thank you to Tracey McNeely for inviting me. If you follow my blog, you would know I am a huge fan of making tags and I also used to be on the Design Team for this challenge. So it is nice to be back as a Featured Artist!

This tag is a little different to my usual style, but I was in the mood for some layers, texture and a more feminine creation. I used some texture paste and a Kaisercraft stencil to add texture to the background. The flower is a Die-Namics die called Upsy Daisies and the sentiment is from a MFT set called Label Maker Sentiments. The leaves die is a Fancy That die called Leafy Swirl.

I can’t wait to see how my tag inspires you. I hope you get a chance to play along. Head to the TYI blog for all the details.

Thankful For You – Jane’s Doodles

Jane's Doodle Banner

I’m back with a card that was up on the Jane’s Doodle blog earlier this week. I love the simplicity of the white heat embossing on the coloured card stock. I used two teal Prismacolor pencils and a Derwent blender pencil to add some subtle shading. The Jane’s Doodles sets I used are Lily and Thankful. Love them both.

Have you noticed I am also trying something new with my photography set up? I am no professional photographer, but I am loving all the flat stylised card photos I’m seeing around blogland of late, so I thought I would give it a try. I’m also trying out different locations around my new house that has the best natural light! This spot I found was just near my kitchen window. Who knows if I’ll be able to replicate it again next time!

Supplies

Stamps: Jane’s Doodles Lily and Thankful stamp sets

Card: Hero Arts Layering Paper – Pool

Ink: Versamark watermark ink

Other Supplies: Hero Arts white embossing powder, Heat tool, Anti static pillow, Prismacolor pencils (2 shades of teal), Derwent blender pencil


I hope you can get some crafty time in today,

Until next time,

Marion
