Science of Beauty - Inspired by Da Vinci - Bee Crafty Stamps DT

Hiya and welcome to my Tuesday post for Bee Crafty Stamps

I have been getting messy with some of my Inspired by Da Vinci stamps I brought with my pocket money a few weeks ago - I have a Need! list of  new stamps for Payday im a bit addicted 

For this card I have used....

Distress Ink Pads - Victorian Velvet, Tea Dye & Walnut Stain

White Pearlescent Cardstock

Watercolour Card

Pearlescent Textured Paper

6x6 Scallop Card Blank

Circular Frame Die

Waterbrush & Blending Tool

Paper Flowers - Cherry Blossom & Roses


I stamped Science of Beauty off-centred onto a trimmed piece of watercolour card using Memento Ink 'Rich Cocoa' then stamped again onto eclipse masking tape and cut around to form a mask which I fixed over the stamped image on the card. I then inked up the Da Vinci Script using Tye Dye distress ink and stamped twice over the edge of the mask to create a script background. I inked up the Cow Parsley and stamped around the edges of the card filling in all the gaps and stamping in various directions. I then removed the mask to reveal no script has been stamped accross her face. I used my waterbrush to wash over the background blending the 2 colours slightly. I tapped the Walnut Stain & Victorian Velvet ink pads onto my glass mat then using my waterbrush to pick up the colour I painted her hair and features of her face. I let this dry out while I prepared my paper flowers, first I trimmed off the stems then inked the edges using Walnut Stain ink and my blending tool. 

I trimmed a piece of pink pearlescent textured paper to a leave a few mm border around the watercoloured picture and fixed this to the cardblank. I inked the edges of the watercolour picture using Walnut Stain ink and my blending tool and attached this to the card front. I die cut the Circlular Frame using white pearlescent cardstock - I attached this over Science of Beauty and most of the script to frame them using a glue gun. I then arranged and fixed the flowers using the glue gun. I used the stems to create foliage in between the flowers. I finished the Card with some gems in the corners.

I hope you like my project and will visit again soon to see gorgeous makes by the Design Team Girls

Cloud Nine - Fleur & Freddie - Bee Crafty Stamps

Happy Tuesday which means its my turn to share with you my Design Team make for Bee Crafty Stamps

I sticking with my new years resolution to use up stash I already have and to try new techniques with them 

As soon as I see this stamp I thought Fleur & Freddie were flying so for this make ive created a sky as a background

I stamped the image onto watercolour card using Archival Ink (waterproof) then I painted over ths image using Art Masking Fluid so I could make the background look like its behind the figures

Using: Tumbled Glass, Broken China & Stormy Sky - Distress Inks I sponged them over the watercolour card which I had spritzed with water - I sprinkled this wet background with Salt (for a speckled rain effect) and then dried it using a heat gun on the lowest setting

I rubbed away the dry masking fluid to reveal the uncoloured image

I then watercoloured the image using Distress Markers: Walnut Stain, Fired Brick, Faded Jeans, Tattered Rose & Victorian Velvet

I matted the watercoloured picture using dark red cardstock and fixed it to a scalloped card blank. I stamped the 'With Love' WORDage stamp in the corner and used Glossy Accents on the heart balloons to finish the card

Thank you so much for visiting the my Blog today Happy Stamping

Chocolate Valentine - Bee Crafty - Fleur & Freddie

Hiya! Its Tuesday so its my turn again to share with you my Design Team creation using some of the lush Bee Crafty Stamps
This week I've been planning ahead for Valentine's Day Cards and I've had the cutest stamps to work with 'Tete a Tete' from the 'Fleur & Freddie' collection - I chose Chocolate Brown & Rich Reds for a chocolate box looking card
I couldnt resist getting my Distress Markers out for this one - I scribbled them on a plain white tile and picked up the ink using a waterbrush to use them like watercolours - I chose browns and warm reds to match the brown spotty paper and red silky cardstock i had chosen to use

I went for a layered up effect on the cardfront using pearlecent cardstocks and glittered spotty papers, a heart edged circular die (and the waste hearts from it too) and a lattice heart die. I chose a WORDage stamp to use 'Glad I Did It - Small' - I love this sentiment and would be perfect for my Hubby's Valentine Card this year
I'm off now to get inky with some more yummy stamps - see you next week

Co-ordinating Pencil Pot & Planner Page Marker

 Hiya a New Challenge started today over at That Craft Place Blog and the theme this time is 'Anything Goes' what better chance to make a few co-ordinating items for my new Filofax Planning Addiction

Head on over to the Blog to see the amazing Samples by the Amazing Design Team

I have upcycled a Crisps Tin and made a Page Marker and decorated them using 'Portfolio' papers by 'Pink Paislee' I brought from That Craft Place Shop on Facebook

I love this paper pack and the lovely pages of mini journalling cards that I cut from sheets of the paper - the flowers on the page marker are cut using die's and punches.

I drew round the original filofax page marker onto 'Core'dinations' cardstock twice then glued them back to back to strengthen the marker - I marked the holes and punched using my 'Crop-o-Dile'

The Pen Pot started out as a 'Pringles' pot which I have washed out and covered using 'Core'dinations' cardstock in the same colour as the page marker. I wrapped washi tape around the top and the bottom to match the greys in the papers. The two journal cards I cut from the paper pads and rounded the edges using a corner rounder punch. I used some Paper flowers from my stash to finish the pot.

I hope you will enter the Challenge over on the Blog and I hope to see you again soon
