WATERCOLOURED BUBBLEBLOOM LILLY



Hi... thanks for popping by...
On this white water coloured card stock by Crafter's Companion I created a background with a few Spectrum AQUA pens.  I used my heat tool to ensure the background was dry.  I stamped the image using  Woodware's 'Bubblebloom Lilly' stamp set (includes the stamp and sentiment) with WOW embossing powder in Metallic Gold Rich then heat set it.  Using a selection of Spectrum Aqua pens, water and a fine brush,  I coloured the flower and leaves.  I used Ranger Archival Ink Pad in Coffee to stamp the sentiment

TO SOMEONE VERY SPECIAL


Hi... thanks for popping by
This is an A5 white card base with a thin mat of antique copper foundation card by Creative Expressions then a mat of white card that I embossed with a folder called linen by SW for CE.
I used the 3 section only of the Shadow Box frame  and cut this out using antique copper card I also cut 2 tags with the same card.  I cut and embossed Happy Birthday in white card (die from my stash) and adhered to the first tag, added mounting foam to the back then adhered to the final tag.
I also cut 2 You're A Star sentiments from the Shadow Box Accessory - You're A Star by SW for CE and used a spray glue to adhere them together.  This was then placed below the images as shown.  From the same You're A Star accessories I cut and embossed one football, one rugby ball and the number 1.  I used felt pens to colour each one, added mounting foam to the backs and adhered them into the individual cubbies.  Using an Archival Ink Pad in coffee I stamped the sentiment, from Phill Martin's 'Baroque Border Sentiments' for Creative Expressions to the bottom of the card, added a few bronze sequins and placed a verse inside the card

SUNFLOWER & A SPECIAL OFFER NOT TO BE MISSED!


Hi... thanks for popping by
I used ivory linen card for this and stamped the image, 'Sunflower Delight Stamp Set' by Creative Expressions with Ranger's Perfect Medium Clear Embossing Ink.  I then sprinkled Silver Metallic Embossing Powder by WOW over the image and used my heat tool to set it.  I used Spectrum noir pencils in yellow and  two shades of green to colour the flower and gently brushed a 'smoothie', from my stash that already had a little bit of ink on it (sorry, can't remember the colour) to brush a little colour on the background.
I created a wide border using the Double Pierced Squares by SW for CE to form a frame and adhered this to the main card
