Heartfelt Love

Afternoon lovelies, hope you are all ok and looking forward to the weekend 🙂 
I wanted to share my latest card with you today. I have used Tiddly Inks Wryn – Heartfelt love and coloured her using just my Ice Grey Spectrum Noirs with a tiny bit of red. 
What do you think…
I have had this idea for a while after looking through the Tutorial over on the Spectrum Noir blog and knew this would be the perfect image for it. I wanted to keep the rest of the card nice and simple because i think this image really doesn’t need much else with it, so all I have done is added some ribbon and wood hearts which I coloured using my Spectrum’s. 
I hope you like it 🙂

Globecraft & Piccolo Heart stencil card.

Morning lovelies. 
I have been using my stencil technique again…original post can be found here 
This time i went for something slightly different and created a coloured base and then stuck the Filigree Heart Accents over the background and sprayed over the card using Black Dylusions and some mica spray.
I then used the Filigree hearts and arranged them on the card. 
What do you think ? 
This picture shows the sheen from the mica. 

Once it was all dry i mounted it onto some black Core’dinations and then onto a card blank. 
Happy crafting 🙂 

Globecraft & Piccolo…adding texture

Morning everyone, Tuesday which means Globecraft & Piccolo day from me. 
I wanted to show you today a pendant I have made that is slightly different…
I have used Royal Sterling Embossing Enamel and given 4 thick layers into a Teardrop bezel. Whilst it looked beautiful without me doing anything else i wanted to add some more texture, so whilst the immediately after heating the powder on the last coat I used a script rubber stamp…**PLEASE NOTE** do NOT use any other stamp other than rubber otherwise you risk damaging your stamp…Leave the stamp until the enamel has cooled and then slowly remove….and you then have some beautiful texture. 
 You can just see a hint of blue here, that is because i used some 3D enamel gel in Turquoise  and “buffed” over the surface with it, because the surface was so textured you find the gel sticks in certain areas…it is a lovely effect. I also rubbed some gilding wax in some areas and then finished off with a nice thick layer of Glastique Finishing Glaze  

 This picture shows all the different colours, texture and glaze perfectly. This technique can be used with so many different stamps….and it fun too 🙂 
Happy crafting

I love how this turned out, and the possibilities are endless with these. 
The list of items used are at the bottom of this post. 
This picture shows just how fantastic the powders are, you can also see the “face” which I used a clock embossing folder on and then distressed using inks, Glimmer mists, waxes & Enamel powders. 
This one shows the gears and the lock…..you can also see the dimension of the powders. 
I hope my post has inspired you. These frames are brilliant for preserving keepsakes, or photos.

Globecraft & Piccolo Stencil card

Morning Lovelies, today is Globecraft & Piccolo day.  
I wanted to show you an that Piccolos have lots of uses, and one of the ones i love is that you can use them as a stencil. 
I have used ATC Bubble Background which i have to confess is my favorite Piccolo at the moment. 
I then took a 4.5 x 5 card blank , a black strip of card cut to 2 x 5 and a strip of watercolour card cut to 1.9 x 5

For the next step you need a temporary adhesive to hold your “stencil” in place, I always use Crafter’s Companion Stick and Spray. 
Spray one side of your Piccolo “stencil” and position on the watercolour card. 
Pick your medium you wish to use to add colour, I swear by Dylusions, but it is totally up to you. 

Be as creative as you wish and apply your colour, I run a heat tool over the area before i remove the Piccolo, and then VERY carefully remove the Piccolo, I have found removing the paper from the Piccolo is the best way. 
And of course you now have a pretty coloured Piccolo 🙂 
Once fully dry rub away any excess adhesive and glue to your black strip and then adhere this to your card blank. I then rounded off the bottom two corners and added a simple sentiment. 
And here is the finished card, you could be so creative with this method. 
Items used: 
4.5×5 Card Blank 
Watercolour Card 
Black Cardstock
Dylsusions Ink Sprays 
Crafter’s Companion Stick & Spray 
Sentiment Stamp. 
Happy Crafting
