Sally DT - Hochanda Doodle Art houses samples

 Did you see Bev on Hochanda on Thursday? She took the Regular Doodle Art houses, brand new dies and some wonderful new big ones inkables too. The whole range of Big Ones inkables were available and also the XL house stamps. Needless to say there were several sell outs, but the website will be restocked soon if you missed out. 

Here are my samples:

These first two were made with the XL houses. They were coloured with Ecoline brush pens and the new Cotswold Stone big one inkable was used at the bottom.

This card has 3 of the regular stamps, which were die-cut. On the left is 'Rainbow View' in the middle is 'Sky Terrace' and on the right is 'Villa Rosé', again coloured with Ecoline pens.

Next up areTwo samples using 'Bird House'

and some more using Villa Rosé, including a calico drawstring bag coloured with inktense blocks...

Here is another sample using Rainbow View and featuring the fabulous Big ones inkable clouds stencil

 and some more using Sky Terrace.
The background on this yellow and pink one was done with Dylusions sprays and crazing collage medium.

The Cotswold Stone inkable looks great on MDF too!

Thanks for looking!

Caz DT - Black ice 'Wisdom' hanging plaque

Seeing as recently we've had a cold spell I thought the black ice technique would be a good one to feature on this project...

Circular mount board
Silver mirri card
Archival black ink
Versamark ink
Clear embossing powder
Black soot distress ink
3D silicon glue gel
Heat tool


Take the Circular mount board (or MDF or hard board/grey board would work) and glue the silver mirri card onto it, then cut round with a craft knife...

Next swipe the black archival ink pad over the surface to achieve distressed looking lines, don't worry about smudges this just adds to the effect...

Now stamp out a design using the sets I listed above using black archival - then heat set before the next stage...

((close up)) hard to photograph due to reflectiveness...

Next you swipe the clear versamark ink pad over the surface of your design, creating distressed lines/patches of clear ink. Then sprinkle over clear embossing powder...

It will look like this, then heat set with a heat gun. This is where the black ice technique takes effect - the clear embossing enhances the background design - I love the simplicity of this...

Stamp out your sentiment from the life words, I chose wisdom as I felt it matched my project. Cut it out and edge with black soot distress ink. Stick on with 3D silicon glue gel. Add some twine or string to the back so it can be hung up. That's it complete!

Sally DT - A very quick musical note

 Hi there! Today's blog post is an extremely quick make - A CAS card using a stencil, Distress inks, a sentiment and some liquid pearls.

I used:
Distress inks in festive berries, mustard seed, twisted citrus, mermaid lagoon, blueprint sketch and wilted violet 
A brush to apply the ink (mine was a make-up brush from Home Bargains)
Bee crafty Wordage Small words sentiments
Liquid pearls, glitter glue or tiny gems
Smooth white 15cm square card
First I fastened the stencil to the base card. When using a stencil I generally find it easiest to let the card lay completely flat, so I didn't have it folded
I then applied the ink in strips of colour through the stencil in the order I listed them above. This sort of blending brush is very good for producing well defined lines through the stencil and not leaving bristle marks. 
Finally I removed the stencil, Stamped the sentiment in grey and added some dots of liquid pearls along the note. I told you it was quick! 
I have been busily beavering away at samples for the next Bee Crafty show, this Thursday (14th) on Hochanda at 11am. The stamps, dies and inkables on the show are absolutely gorgeous, so I do hope you can tune in and watch - got a feeling there might be a few sell outs!
Thanks for looking!

Vintage Butterflies Journal Spread


This week I am sharing a journal spread that I did a while ago but forgot to post!!

For the base of the spread I used washi tape and then added distress crayons over the top, instead of water though I used clear gesso to blend them so they would be more permanent.

Then I added some stenciling and highlighted areas with a white posca pen...

I stamped parts of the wildflower into the background using archival ink, then used clear ink and vintage photo embossing glaze to add the allium stamp.

For my focal points I stamped some of the butterflies onto a coloured background and added them to the page along with a sentiment from ticker tape 1...

Finally I added some white gloss spray splatters.

Here are links to the products used...

Thank you for looking and happy crafting!
