Stencilling with Eclectic Layers and Some Ombre Sponging

I really enjoyed making this one !



I did some ombre sponging, starting with Rich Razzleberry and working through Berry Burst, Melon Mambo, Flirty Flamingo, Calypso Coral and So Saffron.

Then I created a mask by die cutting what I describe as the trellis die from my Eclectic Layers Thinlits.  The mask was laid over the ombre base and then I sponged through the mask using all of the above colours.

I really like the result - it's soft but effective.



The black die cut sentiment was heat embossed several times with clear embossing powder to achieve a really nice shiny effect.

Hubby came in and his verdict was "Wow - I like that.  Very contemporary" !!  He loved the colours too.  High praise indeed !

Well I hope you like it too.  Its a very nice and absorbing technique.  Should keep you out of mischief for a while !!

Thanks for looking - and I hope you will pop back again.

Bye for now,

Delicate White Doilies as Stencils ? Why Not ?

So there I was messing around applying inks to my little piece of Whisper White card stock.

I sponged on some Island Indigo, Pool Party and Lemon Lime Twist.



I loved the blend of colours on my card stock and when I was happy with the coverage, it struck me how pretty this would look with some stencilling.  I grabbed the closest thing to a stencil, which just happened to be my Delicate White Doilies.

Placing a doilie on the card base, I sponged over it in Island Indigo.  Then I repositioned it a couple of times on the lighter areas and sponged over again, this time using Pool Party.

I was thrilled with the result - its really soft, subtle and pretty !



Then out came my favourite Saleabration freebie, Amazing You.  I love the sentiment which I stamped off before applying to the card stock, for a softer tone of Island Indigo.  Simply die cut with my Stitched Shapes Framelits and Layer Ovals Framelits Dies, the topper is perfect and the injection of the crisp white just lifts the whole thing.

Its just a lovely little card - and I shall definitely use those Delicate Doilies for this technique again.

Thanks for looking.  I hope you will pop back again.

Bye for now,

Partial Die Cutting - You Move Me Photopolymer Bundle

Here is a very simple card made using the partial-die cutting technique.



I kept the colour scheme quite understated in Whisper White, Powder Pink and Smokey Slate.

I like the way the pretty butterfly is the focal point.



I also thought it would be nice to stamp the sentiment "Thank You" inside the card on the Powder Pink layer, because I think stamping the inside of cards is often overlooked.



Its pretty,clean, simple and unfussy.

Thanks for stopping by - I hope you will pop back and visit me again.
