Still going! Some more Copic colouring, some heat embossing techniques and a shiny experiment on vellum.
Why do I keep coming up with ideas that are really hard to photograph well? For day 21 of #thedailymarker30day challenge I traced these Chinese lanterns onto vellum using a chrome pen, added some colour on the back with Distress oxides and some glittery sparkle on the buds which, with hindsight, probably should have been gold but I just went for a neutral option because I wanted the focus to be on the lanterns… #powerpoppy #molotow #distressoxide
Dashing around to get a pink birthday card made for #birkasbirthdayhop before the linky deadline at #happycraftyfriends – it’s not quite what I had planned, but being short on time guarantees things don’t turn out how you want them to 🙄 There’s ink blending over the background which will have to count as today’s colouring for #thedailymarker30day challenge. #toomuchtodo #haterushing #mustrelax #pink #handmadecards #flowers
Day 24 of #thedailymarker30day challenge and I’ve been experimenting with a couple of heat embossing techniques that I’ve been meaning to try for ages. For the balloons I ironed off the embossing after doing the pink ink blending. The ivy “tiles” were created by masking off the lines with 1-line Post-It tape, inking, stencilling, and heat embossing with ultra high embossing powder. #colouring #stencilling #heatembossing
