grungy gift card

Hi there 
Thanks for joining me for my turn on the blog today.

I would like to show you a really simple card I made. Time is just getting away from me and I needed a gift card that was super fast to make.

I simply sponged the card background and water spritzed to create a watercolour effect.

Supplies used: 
Sizzix Thinletts - Detailed butterflies
Impression Obsession Seth Apter Stamp Set- RPM's
Impression Obsession Seth Apter Stamp Set- Planetarium
Spellbinders- Seth Apter Splatter Proof
Avery Elle- Gift card Die (older design ) "for you"

There are still a couple of days left to take advantage of Bec's Birthday Flash sale,
so pop into Bizzy Becs online store to take advantage of the savings.

Until next time

Shop 'til you drop...

Hi everyone.

 Popping in on this cold and very wild and windy day Spring day in  Perth  to share with you a new card.

I have had fun today playing with a newly aquired stamp set from Penny Black.

I stamped this cutie onto patterned paper from my stash and have coloured
her up with Copic Markers, using a little glitter from a Glitter pen to add accents
to some of the shopping bags and the balloon, together with white
gel pen for high lights.

I have used the following:

Penny Black Transparent Stamp - You're Retro
Lawn Fawn Stamp & Die Set - Hello Sunshine 

Becs Flash Sale has been extended until the end of September, so pop on over and take advantage of the sale to grab some goodies.

Happy Crafting

Watercoloured Distress inks Spellbinders Elegant Ovals

Hi there everyone, Shaz here with a another tutorial on watercolouring, with distress inks.
The best way to colour this fine lined image, was with Distress inks watercolours - no detail is lost! Plus they blend beautifully.
Distress ink on white piece of laminated cardstock, or use a stamping block, with white paper under it so you can see colours.
sed two mauve/ purple, and three green with blue. DI Blue Denim was used on both purple and green for shadows.
So here is the completed image .. this was for a very special friend"s birthday. Also lightly inked whilst the die cut still in Stitched Oval die with Distress inks in two greens, Peeled Paint, and Pine Needles. Cottage Cutz Stitched ovals  fit really well the largest of the Spellbinder Elegant Ovals.
I shaped the flowers as love the 3D look, although it doesn't really show that clearly - see here to show I do it. I did this with a single coloured layer.. a cheat's way :D
Completed card. All dies, etc, used listed below.

Items Used:
 Spellbinder Elegant Ovals
Our Daily Bread Beautiful Border Dies.
(Available previously with Bec before, so check availability).
