I'm launching a One Day Special on Hochanda this evening at 8pm with lots of fabulous Woodware Stamps. The one Day Special has a different format this time - you'll need to tune in to find out what that format is!
I have a two-fer for you today to tempt you 😊
Here's your first card -
Droplets Mask using CS PM Vintage Blue Ink Spray Mist onto Coconut White Card - I used Phill Martin's in a box technique to get a nice fine mist. I cut it out using Sue Wilson's Double Pierced Squares and inked around the edges with CS Clear Day Colour Cloud using a Smoothie.
I stamped the Submarine from the Woodware Mini Submarine Stamp Set onto Watercolour Card using Onyx Black Versafine Ink. I coloured in using CS Essentials Watercolour Palette and a Water Brush. I cut it out using scissors leaving a thin white border around the edges.
Woodware Sweet Mermaid Stamp Set onto Watercolour Card, again using Versafine Ink. I coloured in using some more of the paints from the palette and cut them out as before.
Rich Green Card using Sue's Underwater Accessories and added them in groups to the bottom of my background. I added some Clear Perfect Medium to the bottom of my seascape. I added CS Sea Turtle Brilliant Sparkle Embossing Powder (as usual, very hard to pick up the sparkle and shimmer on a photo - I'll try and wiggle it for you on tv).
Here's your second card -
I started by creating a background based on a technique I found in Dyan Reaveley's Guide to Art Journalling Book. I used Watercolour Card. I spritzed it with water. I removed the nozzle from the CS PM Vintage Blue Ink Spray Mist and drew circles on the card, re-dipping for each circle. I misted with water again and then drew circles with CS Pastel Purple Chalk Mister in the same way. I misted with water once more and then drew circles with CS PM Old Gold Mister. I misted once more and then used the nozzle ends to flick some of the colours onto my background. I blotted with Kitchen Roll and put aside to dry.
Once dry, I stamped one of the flowers from the Woodware Fancy Flowers Stamp Set using Onyx Black Versafine Ink. I also stamped the sentiment from the Woodware Posy Ring Stamp Set. I coloured the leaves on the image using CS Essentials Watercolour Palette using a Water Brush. I matted onto Black Card and then onto a Coconut White Card Blank.
I stamped the flower head from the flower onto Watercolour Card twice. I coloured them with more of the paint from the Watercolour Palette. I cut the centre section out using scissors. I cut the whole head out using Sue's Double Pierced Circles. I stacked these on top of my main image using CE Mounting Cushion.
I completed my card by adding a 5mm Black Pearl to each corner.
I've loaded pics of all the samples from the shows to the Gallery Section of this Blog and to an album on my Julia Watts Crafts Facebook Page.
