Guest Designing for Studia Katia

Hello everyone!

Today I am having the honour to guest design for Studio Katia today and wanted to share with you 3 projects that I have created

First is this floral card and I have to say that I just love  how the Spring Bouquet stamp set  come with the flowers already arranged in a bouquet and you don't need to mask or try to figure out yourself how to arrange the flowers in a bouquet ( which for me is the most struggling part when I create a floral card :)


To start the card I die cut a piece a water color cardstock using Dotted Patterns : Scallop Frames creative dies and the stamped and embossed using white embossing powder and Versamark ink.

For the coloring I used distress inks which I just smooshed onto a piece of acetate and just picked the color with a water brush.

Creating an easy alcohol ink background using markers

Image
Hi everyone!

Today I am going to share with you an easy way to create an alcohol ink background using alcohol markers.


I started by taking a piece of photo paper and some alcohol markers and just scribbled the markers on to the paper ( I used the non slick surface from the paper)
Then I took an alcohol ink blending solution and added a few drops to the paper and with a straw I moved around the color.

You can also check the video that I have created where you can see step by step the process of how my background turned out.


To finish my card I was inspired by the current sketch challenge from MFT, and coloured the images from Snuggle Bunnies stamp set and adhered them using foam tape. Also the sentiments is from the same set , I stamp it on black cardstock using Versa Mark and embossed it using white embossing powder. Finished the card using some Pretty Pink Posh sequins.
Thank you for stopping by! Have a great day.
