Magenta Inspirational Friday with Mariette

Today I have two cards for you created with the two beautiful stencils from the new Autumn collection.    



On the above card I have used the square lace stencil and went over it with 2 green colors of distress oxide. Just adding a sentiment is enough for this background.

And another one



On this one I used the small old lace stencil in combination of 2 orange colors of distress oxide inks.

Magenta: Inspirational Friday with Mariëtte

This Friday I will show you how you can easily use a stencil in a different way.

For this technique I used the new Rosa Canina stencils. So let's get started...

How to:

On the backside of the stencil sprinkle Nuance rosebud on it and spray some water on it to activate the powder. Than turn on the stencil and press it down on a piece of watercolor paper. Make sure you have a paper towel by hand so you can bloth up the Nuance peeking thru the openings of the stencil.




After a minute of two you can remove the stencil and your result will look like this. Let it air dry or heat set it with your heat tool. The background needs to be dry for the next step.




With a very thin black marker I traced the outlines of the Rosa Canina. I die cut out the panel with a square die with dotted lines and matted on black cardstock. Added the Thanks stamp on a black label. I have stamped the text with Versamark and heatset it with white embossing powder.




And another one with the same technique. On this one the Nuance did seek thru the openings too much, I was too late to depp it off with a paper towel.
So to solve this I just used bleech and removed the color with a small brush.

Hope you will give this technique a try yourself!

Magenta Inspirational Friday with Mariëtte

One of the new stamps out of the Autumn and Winter collection is the blackbird silhouette stamp. This stamp consist of 2 pieces, so you can make different compositions with it.



I have used this stamp on a background of distress oxide inks, where I also used the new foliage stencil

Magenta Inspirational Friday with Mariëtte

One of Ellie's designs is a big floral background stamp, and this one is so easy to use in your art work.   


This time I stamped it with Versamark and heat set it with pearl shining embossing powder. Unfortunately this pearl effect is not really visible on the photo. 

I colored the background with several colors of distress inks, the embossing will work as a resist ofcourse.

Inspirational Friday with Mariëtte

My first Christmas card for this year


The poinsettias are colored with distress inks and the partial border is created by adding torned tape to the background and sponging the ink with a blending tool.

Added some pearls around the poinsettias and added some glitter with a wink of stella brush.

Inspirational Friday with Mariette / L'inspiration du vendredi avec Mariette

The apple blossom bouquet is one of my favorite Magenta flower stamp.  

Le bouquet de fleurs de pommiers est l'une de mes étampes de fleurs Magenta préférées.




On this card I colored the apple blossom with the ZIG markers and blended out the colors with a water brush.

Added the script in the background and white heat embossed the text on a black label. Some sequins here and there finishes off the card.

Sur cette carte, j'ai colorié la fleur de pomme avec les marqueurs ZIG et mélangé les couleurs avec un pinceau à eau.

Ajouté le script en arrière-plan et embossé en blanc le texte sur une étiquette noire. Des paillettes ici et là finissent la carte.

Gelliprint transfer

Getracht een transfer te maken van een krant advertentie pagina, gedeeltelijk gelukt maar goed genoeg om de achtergrond verder op te bouwen met andere gelliplate technieken.

Ik heb hier gewerkt met verschillende sets van PaperArtsy (HP1009, HPXT01, ESN03)


Tried to create a transfer from an paper advertisement page, partially succefull but good enough to get going and building the background up with other gelliplate techniques.

I have used several stampsets from PaperArtsy (HP1009, HPXT01, ESN03)


Deze kaart is ingestuurd voor de transfer challenge van PaperArtsy
