Welcome to my blog! I am a stamp addict who has become obsessed with Mixed Media techniques and learning new techniques! I’m trying to learn how to draw and paint using books and social media. I love creating cards and mixed media projects for others and my family. I blog to keep a record of my progress.
my lovely friends and visitors, I hope your week is going well.
Along with new stamps and dies for Christmas my lovely husband has
also purchased me some more colours of the Pebeo Dyna acrylics that I
love and I’ve spent the last couple of days playing with one of my
new colours and here is the end result …
A 150mm square card
A good to post card
All the details
This is how shiny it is!
Created for me and especially
for these Challenges
1. I die cut the banner using
watercolour card and coloured it with a thin-ish layer of Pebeo Dyna
Silver. I know from previous use of these paints on white you need
to be minimal as they are really for black card but I love the look
on white and kraft and my paints have to do double duty so on white
was my first experiment. It’s a really stunning colour, not too
garish, waters down beautifully. I left it to dry naturally.
2. I stamped the border with
Salty Ocean twice and heat dried the ink before adding the crashing
waves and heat drying again. It’s really important to do that when
stamping over these paints as the ink won’t dry otherwise, lol.
3. I stamped fish onto the
banner with rusty hinge and heat dried that.
4. I stamped the boat on a
snippet of white card, heat dried it. I added a layer of Cosmic
Shimmer white watercolour paint which gives a pearl look and left it
to dry. I fussy cut the boat and put to one side.
5. I die cut the sentiment
from a coloured by me snippet. I figured out the layout and decided
to keep this card very minimal as I felt that worked better for this
There will be many more
experiments for the rest of this month and probably next too because
I was very lucky this Christmas and add in the fact that hubby has
become a seasoned craft shopper, knowing some of the places to go to
get the best deals lol! 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 soon ttfn Karen x
