Make & Take Fri 26th March

Swipe a Kaleidacolor ink pad on a waterproof mat and spray with a co-ordinating colour of Glimmer Mist which gives the background a sheen which you cant see in the picture then pull your card through it in one direction to keep the colour in line. Dry using a heat gum, rub with an anti-static pad now stamp the flowers using black Versafine ink and emboss with clear powder, use bleach to make the flowers white(I keep a water brush filled with bleach) stamp some extra small flowers in the background. I added a little colour to the centre of the flowers and added a dew drop. Trim and layer on to a purple piece of card that has had a swirl stamped and embossed at the right side using Versamark and white powder.

Make & Take Fri 19th March

2 Variations of the same card
The tree is first stamped with Versamark ink and embossed with clear powder then the background is added by swiping a Kaleidacolor ink pad on a waterproof mat and spray with water then pull your card through it and the tree resists the ink. Mount on to white card leaving a larger margin on one side for the lilac version, then stamp flowers at the side using Dusty Concord Distress ink then colour in with a clean water brush and you pull in the colour from the ink.
Stamp the owl using black Versafine and emboss using clear powderThese cards are made using a stamp set from Kan ban
