So took me to the workshop and crafted!
Played with inks and colouring in mostly......CASed most of 'em too!
WARNING: lots of photos
Everything is Stampin' Up unless mentioned as not, when is it just mostly from my stash
This set is called Love is Kindness and I have used the newish SU alcohol ink pens to colour this one. Images stamped with Momento inks unless I say otherwise.
Primary colours are Raspberry Ripple and Old Olive.
Up-close of the image - see how the wrapper seems almost three dimensional?
Button and hemp ribbon
This one is from a set called A Happy Thing
Vintage style and various diecuts and sequins
Again coloured with the alcohol pens
Not as much control as the Copics give you but they are fine for quick work
Die cuts and sequins!
The lemons are from the same set - well, there is one lemon, and I masked to create three
Left a white streak for light
Old punch and some buttons from the stash
Colours are Hello Honey and Old Olive
Turned to the SU markers for a contrast - and a watercolour feel for this one
Background is stamped using Pumkin Pie ink on Tangelo Twist.
Stamped with StayzOn ink onto watercolour card for bird image
Splattered with a paint brush
Should have masked bird before splattering!
This one used the ink pads direct onto my Silicon sheet, sprayed with water mist and then my big brush from watercolour painting kit used to layer three colours into the card.
With the ink left I remisted and laid a piece of white card onto it, and swiped up the remaining ink to create a background sheet to use at another time - looks good too!
Stamped with Momento ink over the colours. A technique suitable for those who are not sure of their colouring skills or just for a slightly different look.
The tag top is punched out and the ribbon and button added - the whole tag is sitting up off the page, and could become a gift bookmark or tag to pass on.
I could have used Momento Navy for a sharper outline.
My background paper is just various washi tapes with a small gap between them
So, my time was not wasted I think - I enjoyed this little experiment with colour ways!
Hope you do too
I cannot enter these in anything 'cause I mostly CASed them from other very clever crafters.
