Hello everyone.

Sharing  two cards with crazy dogs. I made these cards for my sons friends birthdays. 

For 4x6 cards

I made inky background with oxide inks. I applied the ink one at the time to the acetate with a bit of water and then added to the card, then repeated with other color ink again to make these messy backgrounds.

Playing record card

Hello everyone.

Sharing a male card. I've been asked to make a card with playing record so here is my make. 

For 7x7 card I used mixture of dies. 
I looked at some images of playing records on Internet and decided to make one. I cut a rectangle frame Tattered lace die in grey card and layered onto black card slightly bigger and used the corner punch Xcut for it. I used a punch hole for little circles in silver mirror card for recorder and for little handle. To make little handle I cut a black strip around 3 cm long and around 0.3 cm wide and cut slightly smaller strip in silver card. I used my guillotine to cut the strips. Then I cut two tiny black squares and added to the both ends of handle. I cut a recorder from spellbinders set and added to the playing recorder with handle and numbers.

For the background I used midnight blue and aqua lagoon pixie powders on watercolour paper.
Tattered lace pin dots square and rectangle frame dies, musical notes, tiny numbers and a microphone.
Spellbinders headphones, recorder and sentiment from sing it loud 2 set,
Xcut alphabet dies,
Justrite stamps I used "you" word and embossed in silver embossing powder on black card and cut it around.
Creative expressions gilding wax silver added for details.
Card from Papermilldirect.

Hope you like this card and thank you for looking and leaving your comments.
Have a wonderful day!

Hello everyone.

Just sharing a card tutorial with some water colouring techniques using distressed inks. This project I made for Creative Minds Kind Hearts group which you could find on Facebook.

For the image I used All dressed up stamp.

I used stamping platform, firstly I stamped the image with watering can archival ink then I stamped again with wersamark ink and embossed the image with clear embossing powder. This way the ink won't go over the embossed lanes.

Choose coloured inks for the image to colour. Here you can see inks of my choice. I choose broken china colour for the dress because I had already a matching coloured card.

Add inks onto acrylic block 

For the skin colour I used Tattered rose ink and applied the ink with the brush using small amount of water (you don't need lots of water) I added the ink around the top of face for shading then added a bit of water to the rest of the face for lighter colour. If you have too much water on the image you can always take it out with kitchen towel while is wet and apply some more colour if you desire.

For the dress I used broken china ink, I kept shading on the left side and pleats by applying the ink.Then drag the colour with water to the rest of the dress. You can mix the ink with water on the block for lighter colour.

For the hair I used antique linen ink and gathered twigs ink. Apply darker colour to hair for shading.

 Also I added some hickory smoke ink with water to the bottom of the image.
And here is coloured image.

To make this card.

All dressed up stamp,
Aqua A4 card from Papermilldirect fold in half, cut the header die from Tonic on the top of the folded card.

I added some glitter kiss by creative creations to the bows on top of the card 

 Here is some measurements for the card in inches on the photo. And in centimetres is 13cm by 17cm.
Cut the sentiment "celebrate die"from Trimcraft die set four times, I cut three times in white card and one in aqua card. The easiest way to glue them together is to keep the sentiment in the card which is shown in the photo below.

I added the glitter kiss to the sentiment for sparkle.

 For mating and layering I used silver glitter card from Hunkydory cutting with stitched Crealies dies.
Matt the white card with image onto silver glitter card and to the front of aqua card. Also matt and layer card to the inside of the card.

Add the sentiment to the left top side of the card and some gem stones to the card.

Thank you for stopping by and leaving your comments.

Hope you will try using your inks to watercolour your images. 

Happy crafting!

Hugs Natalia.
