Hello You

Hi everyone xx

I'm back on the Buzzy Goings On At Bee Crafty Blog with a card I made using a couple of the Banksy Inspired stamps.
Girl with club 
Boy with Dog

I decided I wanted to get inky/messy lol so thought the use of the Texture stamp sets would suit this look well

Also used:
Texture Borders 
Texture Circles 
Pixie Powders
Distress Oxides 

I made a background, on watercolour card, using Pixie powders as I hadn't played with these for a while
I then stamped some of the Texture Borders and Circles in Distress Oxides and Versafine, randomly over my background, thinking about where I was going to be placing my main images.
I dried off the background before stamping my girl and boy in black onyx versafine
Once dry I matted this on to black card and then adhered to card blank

I hope you enjoyed today's inky make and I'll be back again soon with another Bee Crafty make

2 for 1....

Hi crafters

Couldn't resist playing with the gorgeous
Seahorse stamp set so thought I'd share my make over on the Bee Crafty blog 
Today you get 2 for the price of 1, with 2 makes using this gorgeous image
The first is on a Calender I'm working on and the second is a card  xx

Also used :
Texture Circles 
Everyday Sentiments 1 XL 
Mandala 7 Inkable
Distress Oxides 

On a seperate piece of card, measuring the width of my Calendar, I created a background using my Sparkle pens
The Seahorse was inked up in several shades of Distress Oxides and then random Seaweed stamps were stamped across the bottom in coordinating Oxides
(A couple of my own sentiments were stamped but you can use any of the many Bee Crafty sentiments available)
I layered this onto black and glitter card then adhered to my calendar

For this sample I started by blending a mixture of Distress Oxides through the beautiful Mandala Inkable

The gorgeous Seahorse was then stamped in two different shades of Distress Oxides

I randomly stamped the seaweed,  air bubbles and texture Circles, in coordinating shades of Distress Oxides, in first and second generation stamping, to add depth to the image

The sentiment was inked up in several shades to complete this make

Hope you've enjoyed looking through today's post and I'll be back again soon with another Bee Crafty make

LIFE... Do something today x

Hello my lovelies

Hope you're all well and have a good day ahead of you xx

I'm on the Buzzy Goings On At Bee Crafty Blog today and I thought I'd share a card I made using the gorgeous Butterflies, Tall Teasel and Dandelion set. These are all so beautiful and compliment each other well

Also used
Ticker tape sentiments
Dinkable - Distressed Harlequin 
Distress Oxides 
Sparkle pens

I cut a panel of white card and slightly bigger one in black

I masked off a panel on the white card and blended a few Distress Oxides,  drying each layer in between, after spritzing with droplets of water

The Oxides were also blended through the Distressed Harlequin Dinkable

The masking tape was removed

I inked the Tall Teasel in pink and black and stamped it twice

The Dandelion set, and Ticker tape sentiments, were stamped in black onyx versafine

On a seperate piece of card I stamped 3 butterflies, coloured with Sparkle pens then cut them out

These were adhered with foam pads to create some height

I love the combination of all these stamps...I hope you do to

I'll be back again soon with another Bee Crafty make

Ratzzi and Ghetto get musical

Hello crafters xx

I'm back on the Buzzy Goings On At Bee Crafty Blog today with a fun make using some of my favourite Banksy stamps
Ghetto Rat
I combined them with some of the fabulous Music themed stamp sets.
The Dots Soundwaves and the Fur Elise Music Backdrop stamp.

Also used:
Everyday Sentiments 1 
Texture Border stamp set 
Distress Oxides 
Pixie Powders

Background was created using Pixie powders 
The Ghetto Rat and Ratzzi were stamped in black onyx versafine 
I held topper in place with temporary adhesive then stamped the Soundwaves in the Versafine, so it stamped both on the card blank and the topper
I then randomly stamped the Fur Elise and Texture Borders, in Distress Oxides,  both on the topper and card blank
I matted topper onto black card stock then adhered this to card blank, ensuring the stamped Soundwaves lined up. 
To complete I stamped the sentiment in Distress Oxide 

I hope you enjoyed today's post and liked the combination of the two Rats, and the music themed stamps

Hi crafters xx

Hope you're all well and have a lovely day planned
I'm on the Bee Crafty blog today and I decided to try something new. I bought some natural Slate coasters and had a go at stamping on them. Have to say once I got the hang of it I was on a roll...and will be doing more no doubt lol

I used:
Large Butterfly
Large Sunflower 
Maple Hand Drawn leaf
Embossing Powders
Metallic Markers (from my crafty stash )

When stamping/heat embossing on these you MUST use a GLASS MAT as it will get very HOT

Do NOT touch the slate coaster during and after heat embossing as it gets extremely HOT. It takes a long time for the slate to cool down

Anti Static the coaster before stamping your image in Versmark.  Press and hold down firmly for a minute or so to allow the Versmark to soak into the slate properly

Apply embossing powder 

Heat. (Please note it takes a long time for the embossing powder to melt!!! )

Once dry and the slate has cooled right down then you can colour in your images.
I used metallic Markers from my crafty stash 

Once dry I applied several coats of Varnish 

I hope you liked today's makes..I  enjoyed making them 

I'll be back soon with another Bee Crafty make
