Always Be On The Lookout For The Presence Of Wonder – (with process video)

Eversince I got my Under the Sea stamps from Dolly Dimples apart from making my DT submissions I have been itching to make a few more pieces incorporating the HUGE seahorse. So today I set to and had a play and this is what came of my crafty playtime…..

I have used –

Dolly Dimples Under the Sea Stamps
Dolly Dimples Mixed Media Card (the best!)
Ecoline Brush Pens
Dr Phils White Ink

Here is a video of how i made it

The Art of Life is Letting Go

Hello and a happy Wednesday to you.
I have been playing a lot with my watercolours and various quality ones too just to see the kind of results I will get from using cheaper products as opposed to the more expensive ones that some crafters just cant afford.
I bought a set of cheaper watercolours whilst in a POUNDSHOP on holiday last year
and I decided to colour this stamped image (stamp from The Range, sentiment from Colourific)
I think it came out ok. what do you think?

Home Grown

Today I wanted to have a play and try something a bit different. I still wanted vintage and I wanted washy too so…….
I used Thirsty Brush Bay and Oregano stamp set and dies for this teqnique.
Basically I used my stamp press and stamped out the leaves onto watercolour card and then I spritzed over them with water.
I stamped out the large leaves again and coloured and die cut them and mounted then onto the card and added the lovely sentiment. I added a few waterdrop gems and then I brushed around the edges with some Vintage Photo Distress Ink
