Katya (by Doreen)

Hello everyone, today sees the second post from our new Guest Design Team member Doreen Sympson. Doreen has created a  fabulous card using our popular stamp Katya.

Here is how Doreen created the card:


Stamps: Katya, Words to Dazzle and Sparkle
Shaving Foam (cheapest works best)
White card
Alcohol Inks
Glitter brush pens: grey green and red
Blue Lagoon Versafine inkpad
Clear Detail embossing powder
Glossy Accents
Gems from stash


Using shaving foam and inks, make a marble effect background on white card.

When dry use anti static bag all over card, stamp using Blue Lagoon Versafine and heat emboss with Clear Detail embossing powder.

Take glitter pens, water down in palette or on a craft mat, and colour using a fine paintbrush.

Check this is dry before applying Glossy Accents to gems in headdress, tassels, eyes and lips. Leave to dry.

Mat and layer onto card. Add sentiment and gems.

Thank you for looking,

Love Doreen.

Doreen will be back next week with her final post of the month,
