I know, before you say, I didn't post Thursday! :( Our lap top decided to totally stop working and it had to take a trip to the Lap top Doctors! I have my I pad but that didn't seem to want to play at blogging either! So to make up for it I have 2 projects to show you today and the first one is for my Allsorts Challenge post and it is my turn to host this week and I have chosen ~
Quick and Simply Does it!
and this is my project -
I have made this for a friend who has been a bit poorly so I hope it cheers her up.
I have used some of my very favourite stamps from Paper Artsy and the set I have used is from the very clever JOFY. We have a lovely selection of Paper Artsy stamps on the website. They are so easy to use and are already mounted so you can get started straight away.
I have used Spectrum Noir Aqua Tints to create a background on watercolour card and I have also painted the flowers and grasses in the Tints too. They are so easy to use. A little Vintage photo distress ink around the edges brings the eye into the main part of the project.
A little tag, which is on the stamp set, just adds a greeting.
Please pop over to the Allsorts Challenge blog to have a look at the other team members project and have a go at the Challenge we have some lovely sponsors with great prizes this week.
As promised here is a second project for the day -
This is a project that we did in class yesterday and we were using Sheena's Perfect partners stamps, dies and embossing folders. Mark has been busy putting all of these lovely goodies on the website so have a look if you fancy having a play, they are gorgeus to use (the picture has a little bit of shine as I have used pearl card). I embossed the folder and added inks to make a background and then cut the branches and leaves out and layered them over the embossed image. This gives a lovely 3d effect with such little effort.
I hope you have enjoyed looking at both projects.
Please leave a comment if you have time - recently I have had several of my blog friends ask how do you leave a comment so I hope the following makes some sense as I explain how to do it :-
