This is the card I made for my Mother in Law for Mothers Day and uses the Kaisercraft Collection – Magnolia Grove. I coloured this Penny Black stamp with my copic markers. I definitely think that there are some colour families that are a bit more tricky to get the blending right with and although I love this beautiful dark red R89 I did find it more difficult. Don’t let that discourage you though! I cut out my image with the Lacey Squares Die. Since the white of the blending card was just too white, I used Antique Linen Distress Ink to give a more aged look that suited my patterned papers better. I cut the patterned papers, distressed the edges, wrote on the little tag, picked my embellishments and assembled the card as shown in the photograph.
One of my favourite new products at the moment is the Prima Resist Canvas Shapes (you can get different packs – the one I have has butterflies and flowers). I coloured one of the butterflies with my Aged Mahogany Distress Marker and then spritzed with a mixture of biscotti perfect pearls and water. I then dabbed off some of the colour (and also a little of the perfect pearls) and then coloured with resist part with my Antique Linen Distress Marker (it was left looking a little bit too pink which didn’t quite match my card). I shaped the butterfly wings, left it to dry and then added the pearls. I think these shapes just give that really finished look to cards or scrapbook pages with a bit less work than stamping and embossing on canvas myself and when I am short on time that makes me happy!
Thanks for stopping by.
