More Spectrum Noir AquaTints and Sheena's flower stamp set ...
Hello my lovely friends and visitors, I hope your weekend is going well. Sorry for posting and running but my back is in constant spasm right now so I can’t sit up for long and am so very, very grateful that I prepared my creations and posts a week ago! Sadly I’ve not been able to get any crafting done so am still behind with Christmas Card Club. Thank goodness for DH and the fact that he supports and help me with my crafty obsessions lol! DH photographed this for me so I could enter challenges and here it is …
A 15cm square card for a change!
The Patchwork Templates have been a true blessing for me
A very old brad and a very old large gem stone!
A final look
Created for me and especially for these Challenges
A Sprinkle of Imagination Challenge Anything Goes
(The Dreamweaver paste and Perfect Pearls are stocked by ASI)
Frilly & Funkie Challenge Happy x 3: I love experimenting with old stamps and supplies and creating something new and a bit more current with them!
Rubber Dance Challenge: fuchsia pink, purple & yellow the colours are there.
However the yellow has blended more than I expected into the pink and
where the purple and pink have blended they have gone a dark blue/purple colour!
Another experiment with my Spectrum Noir AquaTints inks (SNAT). I've used them to create spray inks and added Perfect Pearls to create my ink sprays, I've used them to stamp and then colour an image, to colour embossing paste, to create BG papers too and to colour white acrylic paint to create my own custom colours. They are very versatile and I haven’t found anything they won’t work with yet, lol. I know they are dye based so I’ve made sure I only play with water based products at the moment.
My favourite thing to create is spray inks or spray paints and add Perfect Pearls to them. That has enabled me to do more mixed media projects and experiments and as I am a frugal crafter these days that was why they really appealed to me and why I asked DH to purchase them for me for Christmas last year. If I don’t win a Spectrum Noir challenge I will be asking DH for another set this Christmas too – I need the gold, silver and white, lol, then there is a set called Beautiful Grunge - I really really need that set too.
Thank you so much for taking the time to visit and comment. I really do appreciate it and I hope you get some time to do what you love to do this weekend ttfn Karen x
