Sweet Daisies for CCIIDT.

Hello to everone.  I am sharing my DT card for Crafter's Companion IIDT.   
This week I have been having another play with the fabulous Spectrum Aqua markers. 
 I started by stamping and embossing the image onto my card and covering with Pebeo Drawing Gum.   This really is fabulous and is so easy to remove when your background is painted.   
I then applied the markers to a flat stamp mount, spritzed with water and applied to my watercolour card.  It gave the fabulous effect you can see below. 
 I filled in any colour gaps with a sponge and inks left on the stamp mount. Splatter with gesso.  Remove the drawing gum from the image.  Lots of messy fun. 


List of materials used to make this card:
Spectrum Aqua markers used: Aquamarine, Teal, Meadow, Bud Green, Sunflower, Gold, Fawn, Slate.
Sheena Douglass A Little Bit Sketchy Stamp Set - Poppies and Daisies Stamp.
Crafter's Companion Diesire Embossalicious Folder.
Crafter's Companion Kraft Card.
Crafter's Companion Watercolour card.

Pebeo Drawing Gum Masking Fluid - 45ml

Crafters Companion Fresh Blue - Centura Pearl A4 Printable Card Pack (10 sheets)

Cheery Lynn Circle die.
White glitter embossing powder, gesso for white splatter detail.
Twine, bling and heart charm all from my stash.

Creating whitewash effect on kraft card.

Hello to everyone.  I hope this finds you well.  
Sharing a sweet card with you, featuring the beautiful Tiered Dress from Stampendous. The image is stamped, embossed and cut 3 times to create 3D detail, so much depth and flow.
 This is one of my favourite stamps and is so very versatile.   
The card has the most delicious sparkle detail, which the picture has not captured. 
 The topper has been bowed and attached with an acetate strip and the dress really stands out from the card base. Further embossed images have been added to the background kraft card.
