Messing around with inks and glue


Morning peeps, just a few shares, not too much blurb as the eyes are still playing up and looks as though the screen has synovitis dance (that's how Goole says it spelt so who am I to question) again today which is getting very tiresome, so am keeping it short and sweet.

The top card is one of my Stamp Addicts samples using their Scenic Stamp Sheets and Aquamarkers.


This one is a Stampalot sample using several Art Impression stamps, sponging and brayering with Adiraondack dye inks.

This one another for Stampalot which has a nice messy background, basically stamping lots of different stamps onto plain copy paper, tearing into strips, gluing onto a piece of cardstock, covering with gesso and then stamping and colouring with Copics. Both main image and sentiment are Penny Black.

And my final card one of those I made for a Garden Centre order, the stamp is Hero Arts and coloured with Copics and DP is Nitwits.

Have a good day everyone.

Wowers, these are all fab.

Paula said...

Lovely Brenda. I love the last two floral ones especially - but then florals were my first love before I discovered colouring images a year ago. Your variety of styles is just delightful & the scenic route is an ambition of mine that you're furthering. I've arrived at a favourite as I type - the Penny Black with a background that I can aspire to.
Thank you so much.
Much love

Beautiful selection of cards Chris xx

Beryl said...

It's interesting to see how it's spelled. When I was a child and on the fidget my mum used to say I had Saint Vitus dance. I always wondered just who Saint Vitus was and what was his problem. Just had a browse to see how much I've missed again this week and I'm loving what I see. Good to see you can still craft.
Hope things improve for you soon.
Hugs
Beryl xx

Toulouse31 said...

lovely cards :-), I found this and wondered if you had tried the MS diet? (i was actually looking for gluten free stuff for me but thought of you)
if you go on http://www.direct-ms.org/presentations.html
you’ll see a lecture by Cordain on Paleo Diet and MS, and if you browse the website, you’ll get an article on darwin and MS (based on Cordain’s theories, and the author says that he has a son with MS that doesn’t have any symptoms, since he has adopted a diet with no grains, dairy, and legumes:
