Spectrum Aqua's

Good morning today I am sharing an older stamp from "Clearly Besotted Stamps" I think this one has been discontinued as I cannot find it in the shop.....



Using "Spectrum Aqua's" I scribbled 2 different colours on to a stamping block and added some water so it was drippy and I pressed it down on to my water colour card and rubbed it across with the block to create my background, I them stamped and heat embossed in white and coloured the flower, I used the matching die to cut it out and 3d'd it on to my card, I then stamped my greeting and added some small gems, really fast and simple, but really enjoyable, thank you for looking today big hugs love Pops x x x 

Colours used:
Background: Kingfisher & Bud Green.
Flower: Gold & Sunflower.
Leaves: Bud Green.


EDIT:
I have had some question regarding the Spectrum Aqua's I am not an expert using them I just prefer them to any of water colour set I have ever had.

  1. I use these brushes "HERE"
  2. I use this water colour paper "HERE", I have not tried Crafter's Companion one as I don't have any so I just used what I had in.
  3. I print digis on my Epson printer using genuine ink and after a few mins it is ready to colour without running.
  4. No they are not refillable, but they are worth every penny, they are so easy to use.
  5. Yes you can colour backgrounds or make your own and images and straight on to stamps with them.
  6. How do I stop it going outside the lines, I use very little water in fact on images my brush is almost dry and I just play and if it goes over the lines wash it off with a clean brush and water.
  7. I will try to list the colours I use each time.
I hope that helps somewhat hugs Pops x x

Crafter's Inspiration Issue 6

Good morning another early start I like getting up early and seeing the day start :0) I got my new issue of "Crafter's Inspiration" on Saturday and now I can open the CD's with the laptop I can actually see what everyone else sees, on my old computer I had to go in to each file and never got the benefit of seeing all the things they can do, so I have a huge wish list of crafter companion CD's, starting with the Bebunni, omg how cute is the Bunni and you all know I have a thing for Bunnies, well my birthday is coming up so be rude not to pop some on my lists, so I have used some of the free papers and a super cute image from the CD to make my creation for today.....




I printed of 2 different papers and a topper sheet, cut the to fit and distressed the edges with Tea Dye, I layered them on to Kraft card and added some lace and ribbon, and a sparkly button, I used a really old x cut punch to make my flowers and popped in a little gem, I die cut some leaves using an old, sizzlet die and added a sentiment a butterfly and some glitter, isn't this Bunni adorable, I am so in love with this cutie, thank you for looking today biggest of hugs love Pops x x x

Butterfly Wishes

Good morning, yesterday my hubby came in with some "Spectrum Aqua" markers to cheer me up, I needed cheering up as we have yet another leak, the stop tap has leaked and ruined all the flooring, it has been leaking for sometime according to the plumber, the floor has risen and has all cracked and as I cannot get out I picked this one from a book and they no longer sell it so a full new floor is needed when it has dried out, it just never ends with leaks in this house, so feeling a bit sad Lee went out shopping and came back with some markers for me to cheer me and he did cheer me up lots, so of course I had a good old play and got lost in watercolour.....




I used 2 colours, Aquamarine and Yellow, I scribbled them on a block and sprayed water on it and pressed it on my card, I then sprayed more water and tipped it up to let it run slightly, while that was drying I stamped out my "Butterfly Wishes" in white and heat embossed them, I used the "Dies" to cut them out and them using the same colours added some colour to them and sprayed them with water, I added my sentiment and a few tiny sequins and I used foam pads to stand it up a little, I enjoying playing with watercolours so much it is so relaxing and if you was debating getting these markers I suggest you get them they are LUSH, thank you so much for looking today biggest of hugs love Pops x x x

Time for me again..

Good morning I have finally sorted through all my bits and got them all in one place, I am now in the cupboard under the stairs, it has finally dried out from the roof leaking, I am so sick of leaking doors, windows and pipes, I have lost count of the number of times I have had to throw away and start again but now we are all dried out and hopefully water proof, there is nothing that can leak now (fingers crossed) as you all know my crafty cupboard got the worst of it and warped so the shelves started collapsing, the wheels buckled a few weeks ago and it was just beyond repair, so I told Lee I needed a new desk and I have picked this one "HERE" so while I am saving up for it, Shaleise has bought herself a double bed so she could not fit her desk in her room so she gave me it while I save up for my new one...

I have it all planned out when I get my new one it will go at the larger end so I don't keep cracking my head :0)))), the cupboard measures 9 foot 10 inches long by 2 foot 10 inches wide, obviously the roof gets smaller as the stairs are there, its very cosy and dark but there is a socket so I could have a lamp in there, suits me perfectly.....




This is my desk and colouring space with all my markers and pencils, expect for the 2 that I stupidly threw away when I threw all the wet papers and ribbons away, IB1 and BT1 are gone :0( but it is handy having them all in one place at arms length...




The other end of my desk, surprisingly it all fits, because I threw that much away again...




The draws are for family stuff at the moment and my stamps are on the top along with family drinks, and coats above them...




I got a little stool and now can sit and play, I was on the dining table but I like to have meals as a family so I had to keep putting it all away, which is kind of a mojo killer, now I can start a creation and walk away if I need to without putting it all away, it is perfect for me, so on to today's creation....




I used "Video Boy" and coloured with "Spectrum Noir Markers" sorry I didn't write the numbers down I couldn't find a post it :0) I used up scraps of paper and distressed the edges, I will be in my tiny cupboard today creating as soon as I have cleaned through, thank you for looking today have a fabulous Saturday big hugs love Pops x x x

Still on white

Good morning so I decided to use another die set I have never used, shocking that I have never used them, but I have now I have one more set I have not used, and I shall be playing with that one today if I get myself sorted, I started sorting out my craft supplies and trying to be more organized, wow I wish I had never started, but since I gave my craft room to my son so he could have his lift fitted I sort of took over every room, draw and cupboard, I have to get it all out sorted and back in to my crafty cupboard so it is all in one place, sigh....




Another simple super fast card using die cut flowers, butterfly and gems, Have a wonderful day its sunshine and gorgeous here again :0) huggles Pops x x  x

White card

Good morning I was asked to make a card for a friend for her Mum, I am not to keen on making cards for other people to much pressure :0) and if I have to send a card I use my Hallmark cd I don't really make people hand made cards unless they are special, I do make lots of cards as you see from my blog but they either go to shops as samples, TV for samples or I donate to 3 different charities, so with a huge amount of pressure I made a card for her Mum but went for the safe option of white....




I printed my sentiment on to Linen card, and cut it out with a really old die set that I have never used, I added some die cut flowers a MFT swirl and a Butterfly, I then added some Gems and some Gem brads, a simple white card, thank you so much for looking today, biggest of hugs love Pops x x x
