Birthday Dahlias Coloured In With Crayola Markers

I never thought I’d get such a great result from Crayola fine line markers and a water brush…I got the set of 12 colours and this set was quite cheap and easily available..the only thing is that they work best with water only on watercolour cardstock…

I started by stamping the flowers and the leaves on watercolour cardstock…I did quite a bit of masking as well to make all the flowers and leaves look like they were a part of a bunch…I then added only a little bit of colour from the marker and used a water brush to pull out the colour and fill up the flowers and leaves…

Once dry,I die cut the top layer from this panel and adhered it to the a plain white card base..

Using Altenew sapphire ink pad ,I stamped the sentiment on a small strip and cut it out and adhered it to the card front using some adhesive foam underneath…

To embellish my card I have simply added a few sparkling clear sequins and used my sparkle pen to add a bit of glitter to the flowers and leaves…

I’m sharing a picture of the marker packaging in case you’d like to try them out…as far as I know, there are two different 12 packs and a 40 pack of markers…I used this one for my card today and it was selling for A$2.99 when I bought it….
So very glad you stopped by my blog today….Hope you will have a bright and sunshiny day today…!!

Atlenew Decoupage Flowers – A Card & A Tag

I have been planning to try out the decoupage technique for a very long time and have finally been able to create something…I have seen a lot of cardmakers create beautiful cards and share tutorials for this technique but the one video that I found the most helpful was the one by Yana Smakula…and although she used wood block stamps and coordinating layering dies for her tutorial,you get the idea of how exactly it is done…here is the link to her full post if you’d like to check it out – 3D Decoupage Technique by Yana Smakula

I made a card using Altenew Dahlia Blossoms stamp set and halftone stencil as well as a tag using the Altenew Beautiful Day stamp set…and even in the pictures you can see that the flowers give a dimensional look…

For the card I chose a dark coloured card base and die cut the top layer using white cardstock and a pierced rectangle die….I then used the hafltone stencil and broken china Distress Oxide ink to print the pattern lightly onto the top layer,making sure not to cover the whole panel…

On a separate piece of cardstock,I stamped and coloured each of the flower images twice using Peerless watercolour..I also stamped and coloured in a few leaves….once dry,I cut out the leaves and one each of the flowers…then to create the decoupage layer,I cut out the inner layer of the second flower and adhered it to the main flower using foam squares…

I adhered the leaves and the dimensional flowers to the card front,added the sentiment on a small panel and adhered some rhinestones to embellish my card…and finally,I added a bit of shimmer by using my Spectrum Noir sparkle marker…

Here is a close-up shot of the flowers…

So while I was practicing this technique,i decided to make a tag as well…this time using the Altenew Beautiful day peony flower outline stamp…
First I die-cut the tag using watercolour cardstock and painted a few lines in various colours…then I stamped the flower leaf images on a separate piece of cardstock and coloured them in using Peerless watercolours as well…once dry,I cut out the two of the flowers as is and one flower’s inner layer…
I placed the darker coloured flower and the leaves at the bottom of the tag and then placed another flower above them…and finally I used foam squares to adhere the inner layer on this flower…
I added the sentiment,some pink sequins and a pink ribbon and my tag was ready…

Easy Stamp Painting – Two Cards,Two Techniques

I have tried the ‘no line watercolouring’ technique so many times and have failed miserably to get the right result…I probably need lots of practice but for now I have found an easy way out which gets me the look of hand-painted flowers so easily…maybe this has been tried and shared by others before but I haven’t seen any tutorials/videos yet…
Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

For my first card I chose a lime green card base and die cut the top layer from watercolour cardstock….now for the fun part….I used the detail stamps from a rose layering stamp and and various Distress inks to stamp directly on the top layer….I used one colour at a time and with a water brush I quickly painted on the stamped area,spreading the ink out and painting a flower shape…I used my heat gun to dry the images and repeated the stamping and painting with other colours…I have used picked raspberry,spiced marmalade,candied apple,mustard seed and mowed lawn shades of Distress inks…

To add the gold splatter I had to roughly mask the painted section……I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment on a green label and layered it with a gold glitter label before adhering it to the top layer…

Finally before adhering the top layer to the card base,I ran the it through my Cuttlebug using a large rectangle cross stitch die…

I used a different…and much simpler idea for my second card….most of you would take one look at it and know exactly what I did to get the hand painted look in this card…

On a piece of watercolour cardstock,I stamped the dahlia and leaves outline images using a very light distress ink….I used a thin paintbrush and Peerless watercolours to paint on top of these stamped outlines…and my painting was done…tell me if I’m wrong but I think it looks hand painted.. 🙂

I then splattered some purple paint on the rest of the card and die cut the words ‘love & hugs’ from it…I then die cut the same words from orange craft foam and adhered it all back onto the card…to embellish my card I have used a few metallic orange sequins…

Thanks A Bunch

Every now and then I challenge myself to make a card which is not too colourful and looks classy…as I know that even though I love making them,not everyone likes bright cards…I was very careful with this card and quite happy with the result as well…
The card base is plain white and I have cute plain green cardstock at an angle for the top layer…I also embossed the top layer using the WRMK next level quilted embossing folder and adhered it to the card base…
On a separate piece of cardstock I stamped the Altenew Dahlia blossoms…it’s a layering stamp set and saves you the time that you would spend on colouring in…once stamped,I cut these flowers and leaves out and placed them on the card…
To embellish the card I have used bottle green and ebony black Nuvo crystal drops..
Thank you for visiting my blog today…Have a lovely & blessed day ahead….Happy crafting…!!
