Mayuri and Nina-Marie are up today.  First up is Nina-Marie:



For my card, I have used the lovely handwritten sentiment from the Stories Neat & Tangled stamp set, as well as some cork feathers, which are included in the Scrapbook Circle kit.  I love the ink smooshing technique, so I had create a watercolor background using some distress inks!

For the cork feathers, I covered them with Versamark ink and heat embossed them with gold embossing powder to tie in with the rest of the gold elements I have on my card. To finish off the card, I scattered Winter WonderlandPixie Dust and Gold Dust sequins around the card front.

And now for Mayuri:

So, you know how I like a good smoosh, right?! With inks I mean? That's the technique that I've really been enjoying for showcasing Danielle's beautiful, hand drawn sentiments, but paired with those cork embellishments, you're definitely on to a winner!

I used Dylusions Ink sprays here, but not in the usual way - I unscrewed the bottles of a couple, and drew straight onto an acrylic block with the little pipes/nozzles. Then, I spritzed a piece of watercolour paper with water and laid the acrylic block upside down, allowing the ink to spread and blend!

The effect is different every time (which is why I keep going back to it!). I trimmed the panel down to be the same size as my card base, stamped the sentiment from Stories with Versamark ink and heat set in white. The die-cut panel was then adhered to the card base - to finish, I added a couple of cork embellishment and called it done!

That's all for us today, but please stop by the Scrapbook Circle blog to see what their DT created, and remember to leave comments on all the hop posts this week to be entered for the prizes!

  8. Do I watercolor stamps? All the time! My dad has a huge pad of watercolor paper but I haven't used it yet. I just use regular cardstock and my absolute favorite colors are from LuminArte, who makes the most amazing watercolors. I have a whole container of paintbrushes so I can take my pick. I love to color and I color with crayons, markers (I just bought some Copics), colored pencils and paints. I even have chalk pencils! I also love the saying "We are all made of stories" because it is so true! Nice job on the cards.
