Be Strong, Be Fearless, Be You

Hi everyone xx

I'm on the Bee Crafty blog today with a card I made using the gorgeous
Skull with Birds and Feathers. .. unique, beautiful and so versatile

Also used:
Oak leaf stamp
Girl Boy Work Hard stamp set
Shaving foam
Sparkle pens

I created a square background using inks and shaving foam, and set it aside to dry
On a seperate square of card I stamped the image in black onyx versafine 
Once dry I applied sparkle pens on a glass mat, spritzed with water then randomly applied it over the image..spritzing with more water to create a smooshed effect. This was set aside to dry
I stamped the Oak leaf randomly over the shaving foam background then adhered it to card blank
Once dry I stamped the sentiment on the square topper then adhered this on to the background 
I framed the two with wiggly lines, drawn on with a black pen

I love the versatility of this gorgeous image....I hope you do to

Under the sea

Hello crafters xx
Unfortunately I was unable to do samples for this weeks Hochanda show, where Bev and Sam released the fabulous new sea life stamps xx
So i thought I'd make, and share an Art Journal page using the gorgeous Seahorse and Octopod stamps, for my weekly DT blog xx

Also used:,

To begin i gessoed the journal pages and dried with my heat gun
I then randomly smooshed paints over the spread. You can also use Distress inks/oxides or any other inks in your crafty stash
I dried the pages thoroughly
I blended white paint randomly through the Circles Dinkable
I stamped both images on to tissue paper
Once dry I coloured the reverse side of the images with my pens
These were adhered with a Matt medium.
I stamped the seaweed across the bottom and coloured in with paints
I added white paint to highlight the air bubbles
The sentiments were stamped on to white card then cut out and adhered with gel glue
To finish I used a black pen to add a frame around my spread

I hope you liked today's make. Thankyou for popping by

Hey everyone
How are we all? Hope you've had lots of crafty fun..I know I have 😁
I'm back today with a card I made using the gorgeous Seahorse.

Also used:
Ticker Tape 2 sentiment stamp
Distress Oxide 

I blended 2/3 different blue Distress Oxides through the Circles Dinkable to create a background, which I adhered to card blank.
I put some of the same Oxides on to a glass mat, spritzed with water then smooshed over a smaller piece of card.
I then applied the Oxides direct to the stamp, spritzed with water and stamped it onto the card.
The Seaweeds were stamped and coloured in with the oxides and a water brush 
To complete, the sentiment was stamped on to white card , cut up and glued in place. 

Many thanks for popping over today

I'm back again 😁 ....  with a card I made using the fabulous Octopod stamp.

Also used:
Ticker Tape 2 stamp set
Pixie Powders

A simple but effective card to make.

I inked through the Regular Dots Dinkable, direct on to the front of the card blank, with white ink.
On a separate square of white card, I created a background using Pixie Powders 
The Octopod was stamped in Versafine and glossy accents used on the head.
The Seaweeds were also stamped in Versafine and coloured in with Kuretake Clean Colour pens 
This was adhered to card blank and a frame added with a black pen.

For You

Hello crafters xx
Hope you're all well and have crafty plans for today?
I'm back on the Bee Crafty blog with a card I made using the beautiful Unicorn stamps. I combined them with the gorgeous BEAUtanicals Wildflower stamps. ...perfect combination I think xx
Also used:
Everyday Sentiments stamp set
Distress Oxides 
Sparkle pen

To begin I stamped a selection of the beautiful Wildflowers across the bottom of the card blank. I used different coloured Distress Oxides and stamped in first and second generation, to create depth and dimension
On an oval die cut I stamped the smaller Unicorn in Smokey Grey versafine. 
This was masked off and I then stamped the bigger Unicorn, so it appeared behind the other 
I removed the mask 
I randomly inked through the Distressed Diamonds Dinkable in a green Distress Oxide.
I coloured my unicorns in with watercolour pencils and a water brush then add a hint of sparkle using a clear Sparkle Pen 
The sentiment was stamped in Smokey Grey versafine and to complete I adhered this to the card blank with foam pads

A beautiful magical card for any occasion 

Thankyou for popping by and I'll be back again soon
