Galaxy Background Using Watercolours

I have tried ‘galaxy-like’ backgrounds for my cards but have been fascinated by the watercolour galaxy background cards that some card makers have shared on various platforms…I couldn’t understand how it was done until I saw the tutorial by Yana Smakula….I do realise that I have used too much colour and less water so my backgrounds are quite blotchy and brighter than they should be… anyways,these are my first couple of tries following the technique….

I chose gold cardstock to create the card base for my first card…I cut out a watercolour panel to size and stamped the dragon,the hedgehog and the log and masked them…I didn’t know how my background was going to turn out so I did not colour in the images right away… ๐Ÿ™‚
I then pulled out my Gansai Tambi watercolours and my heat gun and followed the tutorial to create my background…I did add some gold paint splatters on my background which Yana hasn’t…
Once my panel was completely dry,I coloured in the images using Spectrum Noir markers and added the stamped sentiment label to the card front…finally, I used the sparkle pen on the coloured images and my card was ready…

For my second card I chose a green card base and cut watercolour cardstock to size for the front panel…I stamped and masked the unicorn image and proceeded to create the galaxy background…
Once dry,I coloured in the image and die cut a tag from silver foil cardstock and stamped the sentiment using blazing red stazon ink…I adhered some craft foam under the tag before adding it to the card…

To embellish this card I have used silver star sequins…and because I find foil cardstock so hard to photograph I have added quite a few pictures of this card…here is a much clearer and close up shot of the silver tag…

Sending Hedgehugs Action Wobble Card

My elder daughter misses her best friend a lot and wanted to send her a card…she wanted a bright and cheerful one so I came up with this one…

For a plain white card base I chose a watercolour cardstock which I have cut the same size as the front of the card…I also used a large double pierced die to emboss this layer for a bit on texture…
Using Gansai Tambi watercolours,I painted rainbow strips on the card…was pretty happy with myself as I finally got the order of colours right…I have usually managed to muck up the order in almost every project…once the colours were dry,I adhered the panel to the card front…
On a separate piece of cardstock,I stamped the little girl and the two hedgehogs…I coloured them in using Spectrum Noir markers and cut them out and placed them on the card…I have used a mini action wobble spring for the big hedgehog…you can check out the small video for this card on my Instagram page..
To embellish the card I have used clear sequins in various sizes…adding more colour to this already colourful card didn’t make sense..
Thank you for your visit today…I’m glad you stopped by my blog…Have a wonderful day ahead…!!

You Can Always Lean On Me

These happy hedgehogs from MFT are adorable aren’t they??I just need to add them to a card and it instantly adds cuteness to it…this time I made a simple one layer card using this stamp set with the sentiment banner on top…

On a die cut watercolor cardstock card front,I stamped the hedgehogs,grass and the little butterfly using black ink and then die cut a circle using some scrap paper….with that circle die cut I created a mask for the stamped area and used Distress Inks to create the background…the shades I have used are abandoned coral,candied apple,fired brick and ground espresso…I spritzed a bit of water for effect and once dry,I removed the mask…
I coloured in the images using Spectrum Noir markers and created a small banner to stamp the sentiment on…and finally I have used a few clear sequins to embellish this card…
I’m so glad you stopped by to take a look at my card today….Hope you will have a beautiful day ahead…!!

In Case You Didn’t Know…

Sometimes even when you plan so much or try too hard,things don’t go the way you want them to….but sometimes things fall in place so easily that you’re left wondering if it actually happened…I had a rough idea about the card I’m sharing today but it came together so quickly and without any goof ups that I spent quite a bit of time after trying to see if I had done everything right or not…. ๐Ÿ™‚
The card base is plain white and I have used watercolor paper for the top layer….first I sponged in some distress inks for the background and used green die ink to stamp the grass…I then die cut a few birch trees,used a bit of distress inks on them and laced them on the card…i also placed a couple of birds on the trees…
I stamped and coloured in the cute hedgehog images on a separate piece of cardstock,cut them out and then placed them on the card..I also stamped the sentiment above those two…
Thank you so much for taking the time and visiting my blog today…Have a wonderful day ahead…!!

How Much Do I Love You?

I am amazed at card makers who are super organised…they plan so well and create ahead of time for all occasions,festivals and events…the rest of us probably just scramble to create once we’ve shocked ourselves after looking at the calendar… ๐Ÿ™‚ย 
And that’s what happened when I looked at the calendar today…Valentines Day isn’t too far now…so I thought I got to start creating a few cards for that…
The card base for today’s card s plain white and I have cut watercolor paper to size for the top layer…I firstly stamped the super cute hedgehog and tree stump and masked it with drawing gum and let it dry….
I then used various distress inks to create the background…then using my Stampin Up hearts mask and red ink I printed the hearts..I also used a white gel ย pen to put some decorative dots all over..
After removing the mask,I coloured in the hedgehog and stump….I placed a large heart die cut from glitter cardstock and placed the stamped sentiment above it…
Thanks for visiting today…Have a lovely & blessed day ahead….Happy crafting…!!

Happy Hedgehogs Wishing You A Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas Everyone….!!
Wishing you joy,happiness,peace and good health for today and throughout the coming year….from my home to yours…!!
I’m sharing my favorite card today..I used the Happy Hedgehogs stamp set from MFT for this card and used Christmas beanies from another stamp set to make them look Christmas-sy…
I chose a plain white card base for this card and die cut watercolour paper to size using cross stitched rectangle die…I then sponged in twisted citron,evergreen bough and candied apple distress inks on the top layer…I also splattered a bit of white watercolour on it….once dry,I ran it through my trusty old Cuttlebug using a WRMK next level embossing folder..
On a separate piece of cardstock,I stamped and coloured in the cute hedgehogs and their hats as well as a Christmas tree….I cut them all out and placed them on the card…
I stamped the banner style sentiment using blue ink and placed that onto the card as well….and to add a bit of bling I added some clear star sequins…
Hope you liked my card….it’s ย my last post for this year…I’m so thankful for your support and blog visits this year and am looking forward for your visits and continued support in 2017…
Cheers,
