June Hits and Highlights!

Hi there

Hope you are all having a great day..

I am back to share the latest Hits and Highlights post at MFT with you all and this time around we are sharing all things Summer, Surf and Sand..

I chose to work with the Pure Innocence, Sweet Summertime and coloured her in with Copics, die cutting out and working then with the Watermelon Slice die..

To which I die cut the components out and inked up the panels with distress ink and adding them to a white card base along with my little girl…

I completed this simple card by stamping a sentiment onto some Black Licorice card stock from the Bitty Thanks and Gratitude set..

I added this to the top of the card and added a scattering of enamel dots..

I hope you will find some crafty time and have some fun playing..

Have a great day!

June Mid Month Release Day 2!

Hello Again

Time for Day 2 of the Mid Month Release for June, I hope you have all loved what you have seen and we have even more install for you again today, so be sure to head to the blog..

I chose to do a bit of inking and create a resist inking technique..

I took the Corner Blooms stamp, stamping onto some card stock and embossing with white embossing powder..

Next, I chose distress oxide inks, black soot, evergreen bough and antique linen, blending all the colours together until happy..

I wanted to frame my image so I die cut the Framed die onto white card stock and added my image to this background and then to a Steel Grey card base..

I finished off this card by adding a sentiment from the Essential Sentiments that I embossed with white embossing powder onto Black Licorice card stock, adding this to the base of the flower and Clear Drops..

Have fun seeing all the amazing projects again today and thank you for all the amazing comments about my Magnolia Blossom card…

June Mid Month Release Day 1!

Hello

Welcome back to my blog and for a fun mini release from MFT, showcasing new floral stamps..

Be sure to head to the blog to see even more details about what is being released and what the DT have created for you all..

I tried my hand with some no line water colouring and using my Karin Brush Markers again and I am starting to get the feel of these wonderful brush markers..

To start my card off, I took one of the Magnolia Blossoms and stamped with Antique Linen Distress Ink onto some water colour paper..

I took my time colouring the image until I was completely happy with the result..

Next, I stamped a sentiment from the Happy Hummingbirds with Cement Gray Ink..

I completed the card by adding some score lines around the image and some pearls..

I wanted to keep the image the show case and I hope I have succeeded..

I look forward to being back here again tomorrow..

Have a fabulous crafty day!
