colourful world (by Veronica)

 More samples from the May tv shows to share with you today. A lovely variety of designs in this show, really something for everyone.

My first samples use the mushroom house, a  quirky stamp that will go well with fairy stamps and can also make a different new home card....
the first card was simply stamped in black versafine ink and painted using Koh-i-nor watercolour paints. these are very vibrant colours, so Iwent a bit crazy and created a rather psychedelic house, adding the spots with white pen afterwards.

A more normal version, again stamped using black versafine ink. The mushrooms were masked using masking tissue, and a cirsle for the moon as well. The sky was created using chipped sapphire distress oxide ink and a blending brush plus some yellow for the moon. again painted with the watercolours, but more 'normal' mushrooms this time!

This uses the artichoke stamp, stamped in black and clear embossed  -this time I used masking fluid to cover the image before sprinkling with brusho powders in blue and red and spritzing with water. Once everything was totally dry, i rubbed off the masking fluid. Toning blue and red mats for a change onto a white card blank.

I used the border stamp from the same plate here to create a frame onto a square of wite card using a dark green dye ink pad, and rubbing the ink pad along the edges to create a dark edge.  I used the same ink pad to stamp the apples onto a smaller piece of white card before colouring with watercolour pencils.

My final card was a little different, and I used a stamping platform to create this.  The leaf spray was stamped 4 times using a light green dye ink pad, and then a waterbrush to spread the colout into the leaves.  I used the same ink pad to stamp the rose hips into the gaps left by the leaf stamp. I cololured the leaves with watercolour pencils and then painted the hips orange to make them stand out - the stems came together in the centre to create a squiffy square (purely accidental) so I painted this as well to create a focal point.


  1. Stunning work and colours.

  2. These are all stunning cards Veronica and so beautifully coloured in a variety of bright and also more subdued tones and great that you used Brushos, inks and pencils too for the different cards. x

  3. Wonderful cards Veronica, I love the brightly coloured mushroom houses, Kate x

  4. Such a fabulous collection of art, great colours and a wonderful variety :)

  5. Amazing array of samples, there are a lot of techniques here! I have to try the masking fluid!

  6. In reality they boldly proclaim that their product has collagen and elastin. Consequently their income do in reality nicely. Now this is not a lie. But it is a deception. Allow me give an explanation for. When assayed via independent laboratories the beauty product will certainly have collagen and elastin.


Thanks so much for leaving a comment - it brings a little ray of sunshine into our day when we know our work is appreciated!
