This, I think is my fave of the theme plate... stamped on pure white vellum with white Stazon (cheating! I know, but I'm a little heavy handed when it comes to parchment craft) Then I coloured the reverse with Tombow pastel pens and matted on black and gold, and just stamped the border in gold at the bottom,
This is a very simple one, I painted roughly a piece of water colouring card with glimmer mist Then stamped the words, Friend highlighted with a glitter pen, matted on matte silver card. I then made a mask with the single rose, stamped, masked and over stamped, and coloured with Tombows. Then I cut them out and mounted with foam pads.
This is my Hubby's fave... pity he saw it, I will have to make another for St Valentines Day now !
I Stamped the hearts on to the remainder of the painted card I used above and then highlighted the lines with H2O's then just cut them out, the middle bits where a bit fiddly but I managed ok with my swively craft knife, then I just made a tag with the left over and stamped the sentiment, mounted them with foam pads on a black card with a scrap piece as a 'ribbon'.
This one started off as a bit of an 'accident'.... I like to try different types of papers and inks just to see what they do, so I stamped direct to water colouring card and I'm not sure if the Stazon was a little dry or I didn't press firmly but it was really faded! Not to worry I waited till dry then spritzed it with water. Rough washed over it with Distress Ink (I patted some onto my heat mat and added a little water) Then did the same to colour the rose and leaves, I think it looks nicely distressed (waste not want not)
As I keep saying ......Please feel free to leave me tips and hints
