Feathers for Paper Rose

Today, I'm sharing a card using dies from Paper Rose Studio. 

 

 I started by cutting the feathers from white cardstock and adhering them to a white panel. I then added three different colours of Distress Inks using a blending brush, and then added a stencil over the top and added more ink blending. I splattered the panel with water, and then with Perfect Pearls in water. I adhered the panel to a card base, adhered the sentiment with foam adhesive, and finished with a scattering of sequins.

Monochrome for A Blog Named Hero

 Hello! This month's challenge at A Blog Named Hero is "Monochrome", and this is what I came up with.

 

I used the Script bold prints stamp over the whole card, and then stamped the Togetherness Flower Bouquet over the top. I coloured it with a mixture of Red Violet, Red and Warm Grey Copic markers, before adding a white embossed sentiment from the same stamp set.

Brayer roll off sheet card

 Hello! I made this card during an online gel press workshop with Lydia Fiedler earlier this year. I used a discontinued background stamp from Hero Arts and a discontinued word die from Pink and Main. Please don't come at me! This purple panel was a brayer roll off sheet, before I stamped over the top and then painted certain areas with bleach to add some interest.

The printed sentiment strip is from Paper Rose.

Sending love with hibiscus flowers for Picket Fence Studios

 Today I'm sharing a card I made using products from Picket Fence Studios.

 

I coloured these hibiscus flowers to match ones we used to have in our garden when I was a child. I did some creative cutting of the sentiment dies to nest the "l" of the love into the "g" of the sending.

Colourful birthday card for Paper Rose

 I have a colourful birthday card to share today for Paper Rose Studio.

I began with a piece of yupo, and I added some Alcohol Pearl inks. I die cut the Blooming flowers background die from white cardstock, and adhered it over the top of the yupo. I adhered this to a purple card base made from Brights coloured cardstock, added some white faux stitching with a gel pen, and added a printed sentiment from Big Black and White sentiment sheets.

Blue hello

 I sent this card to a crafty friend in the USA a little while ago (hi, Esther!), but only just got around to posting it onto my blog today.

It is an alcohol ink and alcohol alloy background with a die and printed sentiment from Paper Rose. I added some liquid glue to the bottom edge of the hello to add some gilding flakes.

Sympathy cards for Paper Rose

 Today, I'm sharing a set of sympathy cards for Paper Rose Studios.

I used a 3D embossing folder on some Neenah solar white 110lb cardstock. I used a blending brush to add some Distress Oxide ink around the edges (thank you to my crafty friend, Esther, for that suggestion!), before matting it on some matching cardstock and then adhering to a top folding white card. The sentiment is from the Daisy Border stamp set, which I white embossed onto a scrap of the same coloured cardstock.
