Abstract acrylic pour


I decided to try the technique called “dirty pour” with acrylic paints   This is very basic and I will continue to tweak my technique

Mixed media perhaps


Using the same technique of embossing paste and Indigo Colour Burst over a stencil. Added a die cut from Penny Black called Field of Dreams, lightly sponged with Chipped Sapphire Distress ink. Silver heat embossed Quietfire ‘s With Sympathy on vellum.

Embossing paste, stencils, and Dylusion ink sprays

Here’s another…



Embossing paste, Color Burst, and stencils

With inspiration from Ingrid on Stampnation, I have been playing with stencils and embossing paste.  Last night I made several panels with embossing paste smoothed over the stencils and Color Burst sprinkled on and lightly misted with water , stencil then removed and left to dry overnight.Stencil is Garden Birch Landscape by Memory Box Greeting from a set by Phill Martin. The dimension is really great on this card. Stay tuned as I turn more starts into cards!

Translucent Yupo and alcohol inks

I used alcohol inks and canned air to get variations in depth of color then gold heat embossed the AltenewMajestic Bloom stamp and die. Added some leaves also cut from Yupo and greeting. The just because greeting is from Flourish stamps and the sympathy one is Suzanne’s elegant script from Quietfire designs. Not sure if you can see the scoring on the blue one but it’s quite pretty

Calm at the end of the day
