Going bananas



Hello, today I have a card made using the presscut stepper die
It is a great die because it takes all the measuring away and also
comes with some layering dies with a lovely scalloped edge.

I have used the Darice embossing folder to create the cloud effect on the 
die cut matting pieces.
I have then stamped out a few of the Magnolia leaves and coloured with copics.
The colours I used are YG03,YG63,Yg67 and G99.
The monkeys are made using scraps of card and the Marianne monkey die
I also used a white gel pen to highlight eyes and belly button.

Products used-
Marianne design - Eline's monkey
 Darice cloud embossing folder
Presscut die- Stepper card 
Magnolia stamp- Jumgle leaves 
Magnolia stamp - Going bananas

Birds and bloom collage


Today we have a card made using the Heartfelt creation stamp called
'Birds and bloom' 
I have stamped the image on watercolour card in brown ink and then embossed
with clear embossing powder.
Then using the Tim Holtz blending tool and pads I have used different distress ink pads
to create a coloured background.
I stayed away from the leaves because I wanted to paint them.
When I was happy with colour I spritz a little water on the image to add another effect.
I stamped the bird collage again and this time cut out a few details
so that I could decoupage them.
I coloured these pieces with distress markers and used silcone glue to add them.

The frame is made using the Sue Wilson shadow box die
and gives a lovely stitched effect when die cut.
