Butterflies Birthday card

For this card I used a butterfly stamp, versamark ink and black embossing powder. I water coloured them in using whisper strokes pens. Mat and layered on to some pick paper and for the back ground I used a swirl stamp and pink brilliance pearlscent ink. The greeting is gold embossing powder and versamark ink.

Altered Cd - another one

This CD I done for my cousin Adrian and Fiancee Lisa. I used Mavy metallic pen blue and green (which was the colours they choose), spritz with water and used a sea sponge all over and used an oriental stamp to form this tree effect using black stazon. With what was left still on the sponge I managed to do the four dominoes below.

Altered dominoes - set of 4

This is a set that I did for my family (a domino each) who I seen at the weekend. I used Marvy metallic pens blue and green, sprintz with water and used a sea sponge. I used oriental stamp and black stazon and stamped across all four diminoes and then added a few more over the edges. I used versamark ink and clear embossing powder on all four all over to seal them. I think they liked them, well they took one home each and I had the last one!

Dragon Cross Stitch

This cross stitch I did a while ago now but I thought I would put in my blog because I like it, I changed the colours from the original one from red to blue. I have got another one to do but haven't got around to doing it yet.

Altered Dominoes - Wizard

For these dominoes I have used Marvy metallica silver pen and black stazon ink. The wizard is from stamposaurus. I have used twinkling H2o's to colour it in, Snap dragon (purple) and lemondrop (yellow). I stuck on the stars which I already had for a different look. (If you like this idea an decide to stamp on multiple dominoes like this make sure they are all the same height when laid flat, I didn't and it didn't work very well because mine wasn't all the same, but we live and learn from it!!) I didn't have this problem with the dragon.

Wedding card

This is just to show what the card looks like when standing up!!!
For this card I have made a A4 gatefold card using the easi score board. I have used some silver peel offs for the bride and groom and water coloured them in using whisper strokes pens and added glittler to the brides vail. I mat and layered the groom on blue and silver card. For the bride I mat and layered her on pink and silver card. I then mounted them both on 3d faom pads and stuck other silver peels including the greetings all around. (I wanted it to look like confetti but I dont know if it does!)

For the inside of the card I used the same peel offs but they are as a couple. So we have a before and after kinda thing. I used the same techinque for the bears to colour them as before and mat and layered them on pink, blue & silver card. I stuck more peel offs at the 4 corners and put the bells above and the congrats below with a present in the right hand bottom corner to finish it off.

Psp console card

Another card for a man! For this card I googled the image of a psp console and printed on card 4 times so I could decoupage it. I triple embossed with clear embossing powder and cut the various bits out. The background is using Marvy Metallicas pen with a spritz of water and a sea sponge. For the greeting I used a silver peel off and used a black peel off pen. I am really pleased how it turned out.

Altered Dominoes my first 3

This domino is the very first one I have altered! For this one I have used pergamano pintura paint - red and yellow and mixed the two together and made orange. (It was supposed to look like a sunset but im not it does really lol.) I then used black stazon for the tree image.
For this domino I used pergamano tint turquoise ink and painted it on with a brush. I stamped the swirl stamp using versamark ink and silver embossing powder.

For this domino I used marvy metallics copper pen and a sponge and a spray of water. I dadded a little leaf green pergamano tinta ink with a cotton wool ball. I used stazon ink and the lady from the vintage see d stamps.

2 Mothers day cards

This card is for my Mum. I have used encore ultimate metallica gold ink and used a swirl stamp for the background. The flower is from one of my oriental stamps and I used versmark and gold embossing powder. I used twinkling H2os for the colour, spiced pumpkin for the petals and irish mist for the leaves, I also edged the card with the same gold ink to finish it off.

This card is for my Mother-in-law for this card I have used my see d floral stamps and stamped the image as a background using black ink. I then stamped the same image on a piece of white card and used my whisper strokes pens to water colour in the flowers. I have my encore ultimate metallic gold ink around the edges, mat and layered it onto yellow and purple card. To finish it off I used some white shrink plastic and stamped the same image using stazon jet black ink and coloured it in using some coloured pencils and stuck it to the card using silicone glue. I ended up with 2 completely diffenerent cards, which is always a good thing.

Shrink plastic keyrings

These are for a friend of mine for her children and partner. I used white shrink plastic and used the ransome alphabet see d stamps and I used brilliance pearlescent coral and pearlescent lavender inks for the girls names. For the boys names I used brilliance pearlescent jade and pearlescent sky blue inks. The dragon is for my friends partner (I haven't left her out, we made it together so she already has it, it's the same dragon with different colour tummy) The stamp is from stamposaurus and I used sakura stardust pens to colour it in. I hope they like them, don't know how long they will last as keys rings, this is the first time I have done them.
