Happy Halloween

I don't have a Halloween card to show you today as they've been posted earlier. This one does have some pumpkins though! The image was stamped in black, clear embossed and colored with alcohol markers.

This is the card for the Persnickety group lottery. I stamped the leaves with Versamark and embossed with black e/p. Next I colored in the leaves with alcohol markers. I then colored over the leaves with a Versamark pen and clear embossed. The final step was to sponge ink to create the colored background. The vellum overlay is from a stack of vellum quotes.

This is an ATC I made for one of my groups. The theme is reading. I applied various inks with a sponge and the flowers are done with a gel pen.

Happy Holidays

This is a portion of one of my favorite Christmas stamps. I colored it in with alcohol markers and used my Nestabilities and a flourish die cut from Spellbinders. Pretty simple!

An Anniversary Card

This is an anniversary card I made for my daughter and her hubby. The image is colored with H2Os and really has a lovely shimmer to it in real life.

Magenta Workshop - Card 3

This technique is really kewl. We applied alcohol inks to an acrylic tile. The poinsettia is stamped with black Memories on to the tile once the alcohol inks are dry. (You are stamping on to the side that has the alcohol ink). As soon as you have stamped, and while the ink is still wet, you blot off the excess ink with a paper towel. Then gently rub off the rest of the ink with the paper towel. By removing the ink, you are left with a white image. Neat eh?

It's Fall!

It's beginning to look and feel like fall here in Quebec. I so love Fall. I think it's my favorite season and I decided to do a card for the season. I haven't worked with my pigment inks in ages and I really had a lot of fun making this "Magenta" card.

Thanks for stopping by and hope you have a wonderful day!
