Picket Fence Distress Stain Resist


Background created by placing a stencil on manilla card stock and applying Picket Fence Distress Stain over it, then dried. Once dry, it acts as a resist to the other colors of Distress Ink that I then applied. Added a bit of Archival black inked script here and there for interest and the butterflies ( K and Company)

Stained Glass Grand Gothic Arch


Alcohol inks on glossy paper , the die cut from Poppy Stamps


Alcohol Inks on Acetate


I stamped the butterfly is black archival permanent ink. Then turned it over and painted the outline with Alcohol inks that I dropped onto craft sheet and picked up with a paintbrush. The white is Snow Cap Mixative, I wasn’t sure that would work but I like the effect


Just the basics


We are camping this week and I just brought a few things along in case it rained etc. My mom has this poppy stamp and she stamped a few to tuck in my bag. I coloured them with copics( R22&R39) and cut them out. Put glossy accents on top and adhered them to card

Quick cards made simple


It’s nice to make one background piece and get two cards from it. I like the simplicity of these.

Window to the World


Used a Memory Box die (grand Madison Window) for the window, blended Distress inks for the scene, added a stamp from the Serene silhouettes set from Stampin up. The sentiment is a Heartfelt Creations one, the font is so nice!

Evening Mist


With more inspiration from Michelle Zindorf (http://zindorf.blogs.splitcoaststampers.com), created this card with Distress Inks and a blending tool and the large tree stamp from Stampin Up.

This card could be used for Thinking of you or sympathy card

Evening Bonsai Tree


This Bonsai Tree die is by Spellbinders. My Aunt bought it when we were in Vancouver and gave it to me to use, thanks Aunty Helen!

Background created with four colors of Distress inks and a blending tool.

She is so talented in making scenes with inks, this card was created after seeing one of her tutorials
