    Galaxy watercolour background no 1

    Hiya Hope you are well? I am still ill but think antibiotics taking the edge off. I have been watching all the videos in the current Pinkfresh Studio YouTube hop celebrating their liquid watercolours and loved this one by Lea Lawson. Her galaxy background inspired today’s card, and the next post too! and they tie in nicely with the current Pinkfresh Studio Challenge which is to be inspired by the DT. I used my PFS liquid watercolours – sapphire, licorice, bubblegum and lavender – gold gansai tambi paint and white acrylic paint to create my background which I trimmed down to fit a UK A6 white card base. I white…

    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. Once melted I used my zig clean colour real brushes to add colour. Then I fussy cut a section and 3d mounted it into another panel of the same heat embossed stamp on white Bristol card. The sentiment is also by Pinkfresh Studio and is embossed on a pearlised blue…

    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. This is my go to floral set, I’ve def have my moneys worth with this one for a change.…

    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…
