    Watercolour stamping with Pinkfresh Studio + video

    Hello everyone so I tried again, video 2 now on YT.  Lighting issues plagued this one argh, but they take so long to make and edit etc that I am subjecting you to it anyway, lol.  Seriously tho I hope you will give it a watch, I cover watercolouring directly on your stamps and different ways you can achieve a messy Watercolor look.  I also cover stacked die cuts and have a ‘hidden’ die cut sentiment.

    Gold embossing with Pinkfresh Studio

    Hiya Here is my second card for the May challenge at Pinkfresh Studio which is based on this sketch I don’t have any puffy stickers unfortunately so my cards are based on the colour palette provided. I gold heat embossed this gorgeous Pinkfresh Studio Stamp on watercolour card with the help on my mini Misti, versamark ink and an anti-static bag.

    The Flower Challenge May – Vellum or Acetate

    Can you believe we are in May already??? It’s starting to fell like spring here in Scotland, yay. I was inspired by all the flowers beginning to shoot up for this months card for The Flower Challenge. To start I cut a piece of cold pressed watercolour card to 3” x 6” and also made a custom size cardbase (still to make the envelope). I used ranger archival black ink, which is waterproof, and a little bit of masking to create my scene with a Bloom from Altenew Golden Garden set.

    Hand in hand with Pretty Pink Posh

    Hiya A lovely Instagram friend @tesstimony_cards sent me a cute couple of images by Pretty Pink Posh (Summer Friends set) to colour. I’m embarrassed to say I’ve had these for about a year!  I recently made a few simple watercolour backgrounds with my peerless watercolours to have on hand ‘just in case’. This one with its sandy beach immediately reminded me of this cute boy and girl.  I coloured them simply with Copic markers and added them with 3d foam.  Next I used a memory box die and added some hearts in different sizes and added some wink of stella for a little sparkle. The sentiment is by a Pinkfresh…

    Pinkfresh Studio Be Filled with Hope

    Hiya I love pinkfresh studio products (wish I could get them easier in the uk), and today I was playing with the Walk In Faith Stamp set. The beautiful flowers and the heat embossed sentiment are from the same stamp set. I added my watercoloured panel, with a strip of black cardstock to a side folding cardbase and added the sentiment with 3d foam squares for dimension. Please let me know what you think. I have entered this card into the following challenges: Pinkfresh studio March challenge Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge – Floral Frenzy HLS March Watercolor Challenge – Anything Goes
