I’m still not painting, but I am crafting more, so the signs are good… Today I have made four more cards using my new Dyan Reaveley stamps, Copics, Glossy Accents, patterned papers from the latest Simon Says Stamp card kit, some older Bazzill cardstock and the Simon Says Stamp Uplifting Thoughts stamp set.
I thought this was quite fitting given my weight loss surgery journey has had some drastic and very unforeseen consequences, but has been worth every drama and detour. I used Dylusions paints, Distress Paints and inks, and a favourite StencilGirl Stencil.
I recently received the latest Simon Says Stamp card making kit, a couple of dies, and some cute Dylusions stamps by Dyan Reaveley for Ranger (it’s the Puppy Dog Tales set). These are smaller than her previous dog and cat stamps, so great for card making. I haven’t stamped sentiments on them, I’ll do that once I know what I want to use them for.
I made the backgrounds with Tim Holtz Distress Oxides, using the greens and blues such as Twisted Citron and Peacock Feathers, then spritzing with water. The stamps are stamped with Simon Says Stamp Intense Black ink and coloured with Copic markers, then the noses and eyes highlighted with Glossy Accents.
This week’s quote has been modified slightly as it felt a bit too Christian for me, but that was easily fixed; I like the general idea though. I used a new Paper Artsy stencil, Dylusions paints, white gel pen and Pitt Big Brush marker.
