Tuesday Trigger – Poolside Inspiration

The Tuesday trigger at Moxie Fab World was not so inspiring for me, as we head into the winter months in NZ.


However, as I am home from work with a bad cold and no voice, I sat down with my supplies and came up with this card.

I used my new “Angel” from Bombshell Stamps, water colour pencils, digital patterned paper and a rub-on, mounted on a gold card base.  The dive mask, snorkel and the Hibiscus in her hair are part of a Silhouette America cutting file (C0021), resized to fit. The elements are all edged with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.

Art Pieces ATC Challenge – Water

This week the theme at Art Pieces was WATER and my idea came to me late Sunday evening after a weekend full of a bad cold.  Perhaps I am getting over it?

April 174

I have wanted to try this stamping technique for a while now and I am pleased with the way it turned out, using Vintage Photo Distress Ink from the Tim Holtz line.  I used water colour pencils for the eyes, lips and the faint reflective surface.
