No Line Watercoloring Using Markers! Stampin' Up! Australian Demonstrator

Hello, and thanks for visiting my blog today.
Here is a technique you may not have tried before: no line watercoloring using markers.

I started by using watercolour paper.  I coloured up my stamp using direct marker to stamp technique, which allowed me to stamp the image with  pink blossoms (Melon Mambo) and green foliage (Old Olive).

I coaxed the colours out towards the middle of each section using my aqua brush, treating one section 
at a time. I coloured the very centre of the bloom with yellow marker (Daffodil Delight).
I added a loose pale blue (Tempting Turquoise) watercolour wash all around the bloom as a background. 

Finally I mounted the art piece onto Basic Black card stock and added a white heat embossed sentiment which I attached to the bottom left hand edge. The black rhinestones were coloured using a sharpie.

I love how it turned out, and it even looks though it could have been hand drawn.

      Thanks so much to my lovely online customers for shopping with me!  Vicki  x 💝

Watch Carrie explain the benefits. After having used a Misti for so long, I am THRILLED to see a better stamping tool. It will be well-priced, too, so I am lining up to buy one for myself.

Paper Crafts Festival

I spent a fun day at Penrith Panthers Paper Crafts Festival today. The Stampin' Up! team did an amazing job and were definitely the most outstanding display as you can see from the photos.

I caught up with my friend Cherryn and her friend Veronica for lunch and we had a great chat about all things paper! The crafting bug is something that provides a lot of joy for me, and I love sharing my crafting passion with others.

Have a wonderfully creative weekend!

Our Wedding!

It's been a while since my last post, as Paul and I have been away on our honeymoon! We had a traditional Hawaiian Ceremony in Maui and it was absolutely perfect.

We have been together for 6 years and the 2nd of September is our "day". It was the day we first met, the day we moved into our new home, the day Paul proposed, and the day we were married. 

I made so many little mementos for our wedding, including all the signage for our photos.
I can't think of a better way to use the Large Numbers and Letters Framelits, can you?

I used a steel-edged ruler to make sure they were aligned perfectly on Basic Black Card stock (I used the 12" x 12" size as it was a little longer than the A4 size.) I adhered them with tombow multi adhesive and cut them out using the Copper Foil Sheets.
I love how they turned out, and I will be keeping them in my keepsake box of wedding treasures.

                                                      Large Letters Framelits #141712
                                                   Large Numbers Framelits #140622
