Hear No Evil

Magnolia Tilda Hear no Evil 1.jpg

Hey everyone! Today I have a soft and pretty card to share with you all. I have been using my Schminke watercolours now for a few months and absolutely LOVE them! I will have a youtube video coming up on them very shortly. But when I first got them this, Magnolia Tilda Hear No Evil, was one of the very first images I painted with them and it finally got on a card!

I do not have a list of the colours I used as I mix all of my watercolours and do not use them straight from the pan very often unfortunately, but, like I said above I will have a youtube video coming up and that will let you see more detail about how I choose what colours to mix together.

I used up a bunch of scraps of paper, a couple flowers from my stash some ribbon and lace and a doily, a little bit of cheese cloth tucked in here and there finished it off.

I am still on my use up old stuff thing here, you know so I can justify buying more lol, so I used up a ton of my scrap papers on this card. I didn’t have trim to match the colours I used on the image so I used some sprays on a piece of fabric then layered some sari silk on it box pleated it then added pearls on top. I used up some of my Dusty Attic Chipboard and some cheese cloth. A few flowers finished off this card.

Sizzling Summer Blog Hop

Welcome to the last day of the Scrapadabadoo Blog hop! You should have come here from Zandra’s Blog.  If you are coming here first you should really go back to the beginning at Scrapadabadoo’s blog and start from there to play along!!

 

Isn’t it wonderful what everyone has done with their Prima Bikes so far? I am just floored with everyone’s creativity!

 

I am a card maker, most of you know that… so this is so far out of my comfort zone, Barrie and Carol really threw me for a loop with this one.

 

My mind works in different ways (go figure!), when it comes to me “altering” or decorating something my mind goes to one place… Halloween (yes, YES! I know it’s summer and I am a few months early but that is okay… right?) When I decorate for Halloween I always think like overgrown house in the middle of forest, and that is how I decorate my house at that time of the year… so I ran with it… pretty with some twisted and creepy things thrown in.

So it all started with me spray painting the bike with Krylon Colormaster paint and primer in one in the colour Blue Ocean Breeze, after a couple coats of that and letting it dry I was ready to have some fun… I picked myself up a bag of Spanish moss from Dollarama (Canadian dollar store) and covered the bike in it.. giving it that over grown feel. I then took some “Creepy cloth” out of my halloween decorations and cut myself off a chunk. The cloth is like a heavy cheese cloth with large holes in it, I draped that over the front end of the bike.

I used Wild Orchid Craft Flowers, the store has plenty of options, but the ones I used were from my stash and are Dove Grey Cottage Roses 1 1/4″ (FM-00208), Walnut Cottage Roses 1 1/4″ (FM-00113), Ivory Trellis Roses 1 1/2″ (FM-00382).

I then added some of my fun Halloween little decorations, can you spot the Scorpion?
