Say wit stamps - postcard coloured with Twinkling H20s

SAY WITH STAMPS - this is the new challenge at Simon Says Stamp!

I used a flower stamp from Flourishes Stamps and I coloured the flowers and the background with Twinkling H20s and Primary Elements (powder pigments) from Luminarte.

In real life this postcard is super-shimmery! I used a pre-printed watercolour postcard from Fabriano.

I added a sentiment to thank a friend.

Celebrate STAMPtember at Simon Says Stamps

I created a tag with Darkroom stamps (kimono volume II)  and Ranger Specialty cardstock, Distress Inks and Distress Markers that can be found on the Simon Says Stamp store.


I coloured the background with Distress Inks, I created a mask for the pink circle. I coloured the geisha and the flowers with Distress Markers. 
The water spots are created by spritzing water on the Ranger Specialty cardstock. I applied glossy accents on the geisha image and on the sentiment. Since the fan is much larger than the geisha hands, I stamped it on shrink plastic and it became the right size for the geisha's hand.

doodling on the plane

I sketched this while I was flying from Rome to Helsinki.
I started sketching on a watercoloured background I had made with Winsor and Newton watercolours.
The images I sketched on the page were inspired by a page I saw on the Zenspiration book by Joanne Fink.
I coloured the sketches with Dylusions Spray inks. I used a paintbrush instead of using a spray bottle.

Then, I used some stencils and I partially removed the watercolour with a Magic sponge.

Embossed Geisha

I clear embossed a geisha stamp from Darkroom Stamps.
I used Distress Ink for the pink circle and the brown background. After stamping the geisha I used a versamark pen to fill it with embossing ink, then I embossed it with clear embossing powder.

I created the border with "punch around the page" border punch from Martha's Stewart.

First, I coloured a piece of glossy cardstock with alcohol inks. Then, I stamps the Papillon background from Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous.

I coloured the butterflies with Copic markers.

I am submitting this tag to the Animal Antics challenge from Simon Says Stamp.

Stamping all-stars: new Simon Says Stamp Challenge

This week, for the stamping all-stars Simon Says Stamp challenge I have a card stamped with my favourite flower stamps (Papertrey - Rosie Posie stamp set and dies).
It is one of my most used Papertrey stamp sets.

To create a frame around the circle, I used a border die from Papertrey Ink and I cut it in many pieces. Then, I arranged all the pieces around a circle cut with Nestabilities. The stamp I used on the circle is from Waltzingmouse Stamps.

The Ikat background is from Avery Elle.
