Faux watercolour card

No rules for the new challenge at Simon Says Stamp.

I made a card using the faux watercolour technique I learned from a watercolour online class I took some time ago from Online card classes.

I used Kitchen Sink Stamps (multi-stamping) and Stampin Up inks. Then, I used a waterbrush to soften the edges to give a watercoloured look.

I added stickles to the centre of the flowers and I heat embossed a sentiment.

botanical art journal page

I made a journal page with Tim Holtz stencils, stamps and paper.

I added a lot of texture with molding paste, mica fragments and paints.
I think this is a good page for the current Simon Says Stamp challenge: add a little texture.

Geisha tag with translucent embossing paste

I made another tag for the Simon Says Stamp challenge: add a little texture.
This time, I added texture through a Tim Holtz stencil.
I first applied gold acrylic paint through the stencil, then I applied Wendy Vecchi translucent embossing paste.

The Geisha stamp is from Darkroom doors, The love stamp is from the same set, I mounted it on a fragment from the Tim Holtz ideology line.
The Japanese text on the background is stamped with a Kaisercraft background stamp.
I coloured the background with Distress Stains.

Geisha tag

On the Simon Says Stamp Challenge blog there is a new challenge: add a little texture.
This card has a lot of texture in my opinion.
I used a background stamp from Penny black, then I added texture with gold embossing powder and a Tim Holtz stamp.
The Geisha stamp is from Darkroom door, while the flowers are from Crafter Companion - Sheena Douglass and the little bird and cage are from Waltzingmouse Stamps.

gelli print background

My new addiction is to create cards with the huge amount of gelli prints I made in the last year or so.

I used a gelli print as a background for my card and I stamped the gelli print with Design by Ryn stamps and Artemio stamps (feather). The sentiment is from Indigoblu.
I heat embossed the stamped images on the background to create more texture.

The new challenge at Simon Says Stamp is to create inky backgrounds, I love creating my own backgrounds with inks and paints.

Inky backgrounds

I love the new challenge at Simon Say Stamp.
I love creating my own backgrounds and I love inks and paint.

I swiped some white cardstock with some dye inkpads, It gave a grunge look to the cardstock,
Then, I stamped some images to create a collage-style card.
I put glossy accents to some of the images to create more texture.

Designs by Ryn and peerless watercolours

I made a background with peerless watercolours and I added Designs by Ryn stamps.
I also used some white pigment ink through stencils to give more interest to the background.
I really love how this card turned out!
I used Gold glitter embossing powder to give more texture to the stamped images.
The sentiment is from Indigoblu  (UK). I stamped the sentiment on a piece of cardstock coloured with Distress Paints.
