What I have actually been working on…

Rather than the HunkyDory Challenge I have instead been playing around with new stuff… naughty me…

The Under the Sea Stamp is from the new Heartfelt Creations range and although I have not used it here, it also has a matching die. The image is stamped onto Neenah Desert Storm card, which I have also cut using a Tonic Die frame. Both the frame and the background are inked-up in distress inks and I have also stamped some more fish onto the background using the same distress inks. The fish itself is coloured in Spectrum Noir and although it does not show on the picture, I have gone over the top with a Wink of Stella pen to make my fish sparkle

Daisy Girl is a stamp that I actually bought for the frame, however the little girl is quite pretty too 😉 The whole thing is coloured in distress inks with  little bit of Wink of Stella on the sentiment and the girl. The girl herself was stamped with Momento black ink however all of the other stamping was also done with distress ink with the flowers being done in first and second generation stamping as well as in a couple of different coours. For anyone who does not know what is meant be generation stamping, it refers to the number of times that you stamp an image before you re-ink it; so second and third generation stamps will be faded in colour and not necessarily a complete image depending on how evenly inked the stamp was to start with

The other two SJ images follow the same principle, however the main images were coloured with Spectrum Noir rather than distrss inks.

  1. What beautiful cards you have been working hard. I love the fish! Great colouring. I love spectrum sparkle pens, but I’m always disappointed that it doesn’t show up in photos.


    1. Ta very muchly! Yes, I am often mildly disappointed in the photos, some of the colours don’t seem to come out quite the same either – booooo!
