Ink pens

  Hello,  I share with you today the result of using colored ink pens on Chocolate Baroque stamps. 

Card :  At first I stamped with Archival Jet Black in third generation Scrumptious Succulents and above a stamp of Wild Meadow. I used a green ink pen for coloring the succulents and marked with more strokes the "branches" of the stamped top down grass. I connected the small wisp and the succulents by strokes with a brown ink pen . On this trunk I stamped the little butterfly, that you can find in Patchwork Butterfly plate. The red spots on it and on the sentiments of Words to Dazzle & Sparkle are done with red ink pen. 










This Birthday Card has the same color for stamping and hatching Blossom and Grow stamp






I hope you liked this combination of colors, hugs

Three projects

  Hi, 

I am glad to share with you three projects made with Butterfly Poppy Collage


For this Birthday Card I used Distress Ink Pad Brushed Corduroy,  Forest Moos and Seedless Preserves. On the blended mat, using a mask made previously,  I stamped the geometric part in green and the flowers in red and also some flowers  stamped randomly in second generation. You can find the sentiment in the plate Words to Dazzle & Sparkle 





Butterfly Card:  This time I used a craft card and  applied the wet on wet technique using Distress Paint Abandoned Coral,  Mermaid Lagoon, white acrylic and scratched immediately with a spatula  As soon as the acrylic paint was dried I brushed quickly a very watery diluted Twisted Citron wash  When the card was nicely dry I stamped the script and the butterfly with Archival Jet Black 
I highlighted some letters and the contour of the butterfly with a white pen 






Happy accident Tag :    I pushed too hard and at the same time I rotated the foam blender while I was placing the first color. I liked this outcome and did the same with the other colors too.  Then I stamped with Archival Jet Black the butterflies and covered the background with white acrylic, leaving the butterflies popping out. 








I hope you liked my projects today and thanks for reading this long post, hugs

Let us dance

 Good Morning, 

The idea that summer offers us long evenings led me to create this page. What could be nicer than to wear a light, flowing dress for dancing till late? I used for this page: Butterfly DressWords to Dazzle and Sparkle, Distresss Crayons, stencil, baby whipe, Archival and watercolor pencils.



Summer hugs to you all,  Magda

Not only Ink Pad

  Hello,

I share with you today the result of my curiosity and consequently my attempt. After I draw a sunflower with charcaol, I had the idea to see how this medium would react  stamping with it instead of using an  Ink Pad.  Well, I am  satisfied and here below I post the outcome of my "strange idea" 

I rubbed the willow spindle on the stamps Pretty Poppies and Birthday Words and stamped. I used  charcoal pencil for coloring the poppy and scribbled in the background. 








Thank you for passing by and have a go if you had loved this idea, hugs

Spring Cards

 

Hi girls,  I have two fresh cards to share with you. I used the following rubber plates:  Lily, Hydrangea Tag and Essence of Nature. On a white cardstock mat I stamped the images with Archival Jet Black, colored all the flowers with Brusho. For the background of both cards, I used wet on wet and wet on dry layer washes.

Stained Glass Window

  Hello,

I am starting today a new Journaling and I share with you the inspiration I had watching the TV show of Chocolate Baroque on The Craft Store Channel. 

At first I stamps the poppy of Pretty Poppies rubber stamp sheet A5  using Archival Jet Black, after that I divided the page in 8 unequal parts, stamped accordingly the individual stamp On the Tiles,  marked each section with a waterproof black pen and colored the page with watercolours. I let all dry and finished the page attaching the sentiement using Words to Dazzle stamp.

 


Thanks for passing by,  hugs

Imagination

 

 Hello,

I had to get free myself as if I were caged in a frame and looked out of a window. Suddenly my thoughts turn into imagination and materialize in this project.  

I stamped "Mosaic Flower"  with Archival Ink Jet Black, and colour it with watercolors. A thick coat of white gesso borders the image on which I put some self-adhesive mesh pieces and a label I created stamping the sentiment of "Mushroom House" on white cardstock. The little spots on the flowers are done by flicking with the brush white diluted gesso 



Thanks for passing by, hugs

Happy Place

 

 Good Morning,

Valentine Day is coming and here below I have for you a quick Step by Step, as idea for your make.

1. Stamp "French Heart" directly on your page with Carnation Red Archival Ink  

2. Stamp it again on a White Cardstock, cut it exactly as a mask and put it on you red heart

3. Stamp all around "On the Tiles" background stamp with Archival Jet Black

4. Cut the leaves and stems of your mask (point2) as a decoupage and color them with a green watercolor and glue them on the first stamp 

5. Stamp the sentiment of "Word of Love", cut it in pieces and color the edges with the same green colour you used at point 4

6. Glue the sentiments as shown 

7. Highlight the red flower with some crystal glitter.



Hugs,   Magda

Who of you would like to join me for shopping ?   

Thanks for passing by, hugs

 Hello,

here we are in the New Year and full of positive thoughts I share with you my first project for January.  The colorful background is done with my index finger, printing each row with a different Distress Paint color. On a yellow colored cardstock I stamped with Archival Jet Black the images of the stamps " New England Winter",  "Gothic Fragments", "Sketchy Doodle Landscape""Patchwork Landscape" of Chocolate Baroque and glued all the cuts on the journaling page.

Thanks for reading my post and I wish you all a very happy and healthy 2022. Hugs
