Having a whale of a time!

Hi crafty people, how are you all doing?  It’s getting colder here in Scotland although no sign of snow yet.  Today I’m back with a card entry for both the freshly made sketch and Simon Says Wednesday  challenges.  The sketch is here and the SSS challenge is to create a clean and simple card.

fms final 371-001

I had a few sales bargains arrive this week from Clearly Besotted Stamps so I chose to use the “Whale done” set to make a get well card.  I cut a square from some polka dot paper and rounded the corners as per the sketch.  The whale was stamped using the cool graphite dye ink pad and the water is bahama blue from memento.


I’m trying to do some more clean and simple cards but it’s definitely not my natural tendency, but I think this one counts as CAS!

Thanks so much to everyone who stops by the blog, it’s so lovely to know that people take time to read and even to hit like or leave a comment!

Fluttering by to say hi!

Happy Tuesday everyone, how’s your week going?  I’m back with another project painting with pixie powders, this time using pinks and purples.

I heat embossed this butterfly stamp in a few different colours first to see the different effects (using white, silver, clear on black ink and sparkly on black ink).  Then I used pixie powders (aubergine dream, silver dream, purple violet and scarlet mist) to give these butterflies some pretty wings before fussy cutting them out.


The background was made with the same stamp (heat embossed with clear powder) and blending distress oxide (picked raspberry) and distress ink (shaded lilac) and then lightly spritzing it with water.  I followed the sketch from the current fusion card challenge and used a stamp die for the square.


The finishing touches were some nuvo drops in black.  I added some of the background paper along the bottom of the envelope and a butterfly inside the flap of the envelope.

I’m entering this project for two challenges:

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge and

 Fusion Card Challenge.

Thanks so much stopping by and I hope you’ll pop back soon.
