Stamp Review Crew...Sale a bration sets!

 Stamp Review Crew

Happy Monday folks!
This weeks Stamp Review Crew hop, is all about the Stampin'Up! Sale-a-Bration sets...Who doesn't love a freebie!

I've gone with the super cute "Hey Chick" stamp set and used the Stitched Framelits and lovely "NEW" watercolour pencils...they are awesome!
As you can see by 2 of the pics, l have given this girl a very liberal coat of "Wink of Stella"...Don't you just love that crazy hair!

No idea why the watercolour paper looks so yellow in the pics, as it's no where near that IRL...Natural light is great for taking nice bright pics, but obviously not the best for watercolour paper..:0(

Just Add Ink #344....Inspiration!

It's go time again over at Just Add Ink,  Kim Badelt has given us some lovely summer inspiration to create with this week and it was the perfect time to ink up my lovely "Beautiful You" set from Stampin Up!

I have combined the image with water colouring and the reflection technique. It has been ages since l played with this technique and forgot how much fun and how simple it is to do.

To get the reflection, l stamped most of the image on some acetate/window sheet using Staz-On Black and quickly flipped it over and pressed the image firmly to transfer...So easy!
Once the Staz-On was dry, l used an aqua painter & Tempting Turquoise ink pad to watercolour. This was all done on Whisper White card stock, so if you give it a go be mindful of the amount of water added.
Once it was all dry, it received a very liberal coat of Wink of Stella clear on the bottom section to give the appearance of water.

For lots more inspiration, pop over to the challenge blog and check out the fab DT creations!

Colour INKspiration #02

 Colour INKspiration

Its Colour INKspiration challenge time and this weeks colour inspiration is very on trend and a little bit of an obsession at the minute....I love succulents!   
Have you just arrived from visiting Rachel Palmieri? How sweet and pretty is her lovely floral project.

Well, as you can see l have been playing with some of the new pretties from the Occasions catty. I've combined the "Build a Birdcage" &  "Oh so Succulent" sets and created using the colours from Colour INKspiration and this is what l came up with!

I was inspired by some rustic black birdcages that l'd had forever and recently planted up with succulents. For once l have managed to not only keep them alive, but they are actually flourishing...Yay for me!

Don't forget you can join in the fun by joining the Colour INKspiration group over on Facebook and add your creations there! Click the link above and come and play!
At 7pm every 2nd and 4th Wednesdays we have a brand new colour combination and blog hop, with heaps of fab inspiration from the "Colour INK Crew".

Next on the hop is Rebecca Scurr and her gorgeous 3D project!

Just Add Ink #343...BLOG HOP!

 Just Add Ink

Welcome back to the Just Add Ink challenges for a new year and "Happy 2017" to you all!
To start the challenge year we always begin with a themed blog hop consisting of the whole Just Add Ink design team. This one is all about "POP-UPS & INTERACTIVE ELEMENTS"....Lots of fun and heaps of options from super simple to the very involved!
The DT have created some awesome projects to share and inspire, so don't forget to follow the hop and check them all out!

For both of my projects l've used the new "Balloon Adventures & Balloon Pop-Up thinlits bundle". I have created two very different cards, the first includes the pop-up element more as intended, the second uses the same element as shaker card.
It makes creating fun and interesting cards so, so kind of crafting really!

Now you are off to be inspired by the creative talents of Patrice.
