Watercolouring with Distress Inks for Purple Onion Designs (video)!

Here today with a video for Purple Onion Designs and with such a fab image  I thought it would be great to add some watercolour using Distress Inks.  This is such a fun technique and so easy too!

Inlaid die cutting at Addicted to Die Cutting (video)!

It’s time for another card in my Addicted to Die Cutting series and this is one of my favourite ways of using dies for sure!  And once you get your head around this technique it’s really very simple and so much fun too.

Stamper’s Challenge – Mists & Stencils!

Back with another Stamper’s Challenge for the Australian Cardmaking, Stamping & Papercraft magazine.  This time I had a blast playing with some wonderful Memory Box Stencils and Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists.  Here are the results!

Love how this gold panel turned out, I used a brush to paint white cardstock with the gold glimmer mist, who would have thought it would come out sooo sparkly!

Sweet Copics at Purple Onion Designs (video)!

Hiya, today I make a clean & simple card with some very easy Copic colouring for  Purple Onion Designs .  I just love that Memento inks are compatible with Copics, look….  no black ink in sight!

I decided to film as I created so you can watch it if you like.

Welcome to patterned paper at Muse!

Not sure if I may have just overdone it a little….   well, I did say that I wanted to use some patterned paper and so I did, a LOT of it lol.  I made a real mess creating this and at one point I couldn’t find my baby sheep at all, some hurried cleaning and he was luckily located all happy and ready to sit on the card front.

I can’t wait to see how this inspires you and maybe you can use just a little of your paper stash too!

Altering your dies at Addicted to Die Cutting (video)!

Now I don’t mean actually getting out the grinder and ‘really’ altering your dies but sometimes it is possible to adapt them to get the look that you are after.  Such as making the cut longer or wider…   so many possibilities.

You can see my video here or Watch it at Youtube.

Now, I used a dark background (so it would be easier to see the result) but after looking at the card I was thinking maybe I could have gone with my original plan and used a white background……  What do you think?

I’m back again tomorrow, twice, so I’ll see you then and again!
