Dye inks on texture medium

Hello,

Welcome  to my blog and follow my work on social media. Please stay home and stay safe. 


I have a simple video tutorial here for Tubby craft and my focal point is using dye inks. These dye inks are water based and they work brilliantly with water. They have a vibrant and beautiful look when applied to paper. If you are using layered stamps, just dry every layer before stamping the next. The look these inks give for layered stamps are excellent.

Materials used:
1. Stamp
     a. Floral invitation
     b. Special day greetings
2. Inks
3. Texture paste
4. White cardstock
5. Colour pencils
6. Gem stones
7. Stencils
    a. Royal damask
    b. Leafy
8. Inks used in this video: Lawn green, Emerald green, Raspberry, Magenta



For this card, I used smooth texture paste which gives a shiny and smooth look once dried. I used lawn green and emerald green for the leafy stencil. 







I used grainy texture paste for this card and it gives a rough and not shiny look after it dries. For this card,I did water colouring technique on the pattern. I dabbed some ink on my work surface and spritzed water on the card and applied ink using my paint brush.

This is a very simple card and I used image from MFT - Space explorer. First I inked the background using Spiced marmalade, wilted violet, picked raspberry and broken china. I added the fuzzy cut images and finished the card by adding sentiment and stones. 





CARD 2


This is an interactive card using reveal wheel die set from Lawn fawn and image from The paper Shelter. I die cut the pieces from white card and inked the front panel with wilted violet, faded jeans and spiced marmalade. Using a brad, I secured both the circle die cuts together and added some small pieces of chipboard to the back of the small circle and added that to the base. I used some remaining chipboard around the reveal wheel and added the front to it. To finish the card, I added the images and gemstones.

This is my last card which is a slider card. I used wilted violet, faded jeans and charcoal ink and spritzed water. I took the slider die and die cut and traced the same in another card stock and added the ink. I used a coin for the slider mechanism and added a small double sided adhesive and added the image. Using chipboard, I added this piece to the card base. To finish the card, I added the sentiment.

Clean and simple floral cards

Hello,

Welcome to my blog and follow my work on social media. 


My new favourite base for colouring is kraft cardstock. I love the texture and how the colours are still vibrant. I have 2 clean and simple floral cards. I am obsessed with colouring flowers and that's the best way to practice colouring. I always use pencils for colouring and its my favourite medium. I turned the coloured flowers into simple and clean cards keeping the background plain.


Stamps used: Magnolias for her from Altenew
Tattered blossom swirls from Heartfelt creations

Colour pencils: Faber Castell polychromos

Floral layout

Hi there,

Welcome back to my blog and follow my work on social media.


Today, I have a layout where I added lots of floral elements. This is my first time making a layout and hope you all like it. I have two different sizes of card stock here and one is pink and and white card stock. There are more elements in this layout like heart charms, laces, ribbons. 


The floral elements  - Floral delight and Watercoloured Mauves are from Die cuts and more and the stamps used in the background are from Tubby craft - Floral invitation. I did repeat stamping in the background and covered all the sides of the white cardstock. 





I took the pink cardstock and distressed the edges and did some stenciling using texture paste. After the paste has dried up completely, I added some ink and spread it out using water and dried with heat tool. I placed all the elements to see if the layout was looking good and then added them one by one using heat gun. To finish the layout, I added this to the stamped piece and finish with the sentiment and gemstones.

Butterfly cards - Tubby craft

Hello,

Welcome  to my blog and follow my work on social media.

I have 3 cards using one stamp from Tubby craft. The stamp I selected for the main focus is Butterfly love. This is a beautiful stamp where there is a butterfly image and a wonderful sentiment. Along with this image I used Special day greetings and Tags pattern stamp set which has an amazing range of tags that can be stamped and used. I also used 2 stencils in these cards, one is Checkered and the other is Butterfly. 

Inks used for these cards are Jet blackLawn greenEmerald greenAqua blueChinese blueChocolate brown



Card 1


To make this card, I stamped the butterfly thrice on kraft cradstock  and coloured with pencils. I made a gate fold card so I stenciled the butterfly stencil on kraft cardstock and trimmed it down to the front size. The stencil has beautiful intricate design so I used Chocolate brown ink. I added double sided adhesive and added two butterflies to one side and one on the other. 






Card 2


For this card, I used tags pattern stamp and stamped the sentiment on kraft cardstock repeatedly using chocolate brown ink. I coloured the tag image and added it to the stamped base using double sided adhesive and then the butterfly. 





Card 3


For my last card, I used Checkered stencil and used aqua blue, chinese blue, lawn green, emerald green. I stamped the sentiment in the middle of the card and added the butterfly.
