Treats on Tuesday at Magenta

Hi Everyone, I'm over at Magenta, it's now published come on over and check out how I made this card.
I had a few glitches this week one was a blogger issue. I learned the hard way that at the moment once your post is published on the new version of Blogger it won't let you change the date to a future time and day. We've all hit publish when we meant to save ๐Ÿ˜

Apologies everyone I got my post time and date mixed up and new blogger won't let me change it, the should have gone live tonight. The Magenta post will go up at midnight, I hope you drop by.

Another Salt Background

I have another Salt background to show you this time with an ocean theme.

Wet on wet watercolour, sprinkle course grain salt over it and wait for it to dry. Once dry brush off the salt and stamp. I used Versafine Clair and clear embossing powder to stamp the images.



I'm entering the following Challenges.
I hope it's CAS enough for the two CAS Challenges.

For my card I used a die cut window, a stamp Drummer stamp which was a freebee in a magazine.
I hope you like my Twelve Drummers Drumming.
I masked the drum and then stamped the Nutcracker soldier over it, the drum stick is a little off but it still works๐Ÿ˜. I die cut the 12 and popped the panel up to give a little dimension.

CAS Christmas Mid Month Reminder

Hi Everyone it's time for CAS Christmas Mid Month Reminder.

Marcia is asking us to think of the Nativity when we create our card, please join the team and add to your Christmas Card stash. Don't forget to check the CAS rules to be considered for winner or one of the Top 3 cards.


Here is my card, I'm using the Flourishes (unfortunately no longer in business) Three Wise Men stamp.


I stamped the image of the Three Wise Men on coated card stock with Stazon ink, I sprinkled blue brusho's spritzed with water and allowed it to run away from the image, and did the same on the bottom with a caramel colour. By allowing it to run to the edge away from the centre I managed to keep colour contamination to a minimum. I coloured the wise men with Posca Acrylic Paint pens, and the horses with Stamping up watercolour pen.
The image reminds me of a windy desert scene with heat causing distortion waves in the the air.

I also just received my thin frame die from Simon Says Stamp, I know they have been around for a while but finally bit the bullet and bought them and now I love them.




Card Recipe
Stamps: Flourishes (no longer in business.
Paper:  110lb White, Mirror Gold, Coated Card
Ink: Stazon, Versafine Clair
Accessories: Brusho's. Posca Pens, Water Spritzer, Simon Says Stamp Thin Frame Die.
Techniques: Powdered inks spritzed, Acrylic paint pens
