Let's Face It by Sandra


I'm sharing some of my cards from the October show on The Craft Store. These cards show different colouring techniques for the Beauty is in the Eyes stamp set.

For my first card I stamped the image onto some smooth card stock with Memento ink and then used my alcohol markers to colour. I love the soft pastel colours with the pop of red on her lips and nails. I finished with a sentiment and layered onto a DL sized card.

My next card uses some of Chocolate Baroque's Drawing Cartridge, a lovely paper that can take quite a lot of water. I stamped the image in archival ink I then added water to the bubbles with a brush. Whilst the bubbles were still wet I added small amounts of watercolour ink and let the colours run into each other. When it wad dry I added a sentiment and layered onto black card.

For my last card I stamped in brown Archival ink and coloured with  the Shimmer paints that I managed to get from the September show. It's a shame you can't see the sparkle!

Thanks for looking

  1. Two different fabulous looks using that beautiful lady Sandra, and the bubbles really add to the look of the stamp, contemporary but very pretty, and love the colours you have chosen for each, and different sentiments which work brilliantly. x
