I coloured up the images with my copic markers, then created a splashy background with my Distress Oxide inks. Having them stand on the new Friend strip die completed this card!

Stamp Anniething


Hey everyone! Today I have the pleasure of working with Stamp Anniething, along with my Cards and Colour Facebook group for her latest theme special release!!

The theme for this release is under the sea, and lots and lots of mermaids!! I am so in love with this special release, the stamps are awesome, the dies are the bomb and the little die cuts are so fab!

Stamp Anniething - What's Kraken - Jessie Banks.jpg

I decided to use the only non mermaid stamp in this release called The Kraken! She is adorable! I also used two of the new die sets to create the land and the waves behind her. I also used the Land Of Oz Dies, cutting the clouds out of some cardstock and using it as a stencil to create the sky background.

Make sure you check out the hop and see what all these amazing crafters created to share!

Rain or Shine

Hey everyone! Today I have a fun card to share with you all featuring some copic colouring and Distress Oxide watercolouring!

I love how this card came out! The distress oxides in the background leave it a nice soft really washy feel to the colours laid out on the paper, as opposed to the real vibrant look I get with my traditional watercolours. I really like it, so expect to be seeing more of that in the future!

I love this image so much! I need to do the little boy out of the other set MFT released at the same time and the other little girl out of this set.
