Summertime

May 30, 2017

Hi there,

this is my third creation using the fabulous Gerda Steiner Designs Pool Piggies:


  • color one of the adorable Gerda Steiner Designs Pool Piggies with ZIG Clean Color Real Brush Pens and a damp watercolor brush
  • cut out a stitched panel from watercolor paper and create a soft background using Distress Re-Inkers (Squeezed Lemonade, Scattered Straw, Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean)
  • use the Taylored Expressions Rolling Waves dies to cut the bottom part of the background into waves and ink up the edges with Distress Ink (Salty Ocean)
  • at the top apply Distress Ink (Mustard Seed) through the Tim Holtz Layering Stencil (Rays)
  • add some water droplets in order to create more texture
  • stamp the sentiment from the Market Street Stamps Chillaxin' set with Versafine (Smokey Gray)
  • add some Nuvo Crystal Drops (Morning Dew) and some blue sequins as final embellishments

Until next week.

Yours,

Hello crafty friends!

I hope your week is going well so far.

I'm popping in today to share a card with you using another adorable owl from the 'owl rather be with you' stamp set.



I decided to do something different and colour this sweet little owl in pink! I coloured her in using Copic markers and I made her extra girly by adding some long lashes with a black gel pen. I used the same pen to darken...
