Marker Pop Guest Designer Card

Altenew

The lovely Holly at Marker Pop invited me to be one of the guest designers this week with this wonderful theme:

You can choose to make a card using three of the colours and a neutral and or incorporate the theme.  I have a real lack of sea stamps (added to my wish list now, of course) so I chose to use three colours.

Here is my card.  It uses the gorgeous Altenew Celebrations stamp set.  I coloured directly on to the stamp using brown zig clean colour brush and once stamped on to watercolour paper I used other zig brushes and water to soften the lines.  It’s a lovely technique I need to practice more.

Looking forward to seeing all your entries – p.s there is a fab prize pack up for grabs too!

Happy Monday!

I just got this Altenew stamp set and dies called Hug Me and it is so cute – be prepared to be bored with card posts using this set over the next few weeks.

A friend gave me the large background stamp – but without packaging so not sue who it’s by, if you know please please let me know – so I stamped it using my Misti and black ink onto a top folding card base.  I watercoloured the cute fox, die cut him out, added a sentiment and some enamel dots.  A quick and easy card.

Hiya.

It’s been lovely and sunny here in north east Scotland this week which seems to have brought my mojo with it.

My card uses beautiful paper from Pebbles called Lullaby along with a strip of gold cardstock for the bedroom.  I then heat embossed the cutest images from Popping In by Waffle Flower and then coloured them with Windsor and Newton Cotman watercolour paints on Bockingford watercolour paper. Aren’t these images just adorable?
