First up I started with a black card base. I then took a piece of red Kraft core Core'dinations from the distress stack and placed it in my folder and ran it through the cuttlebug. I used my TH sanding block to reveal the kraft core and distressed the edges with my tonic distress tool.
I then used some kraft coloured cardstock to stamp the image of an asian lady with archival jet black. I stamped her on scrap paper to make a mask to cover her while I stamped the bamboo. I used Faber Castells for the bamboo as I did not want the colour to run when I coloured the lady. To watercolour the lady I used permanent carmine scribbled on my non stick craft sheet and a Tim Holtz waterbrush.
A few more quick cards to share. This first one uses K & Co paper and tan cardstock. I made two like this from the same sheet of paper, the first is love bsed the second is travel based. Very quick cards indeed . . .
The next card uses some more K & Co paper and some bugs coloured with Faber Castells cut out, painted with homemade glimmer glaze and mounted on squares edged with distress ink :)
Thanks for sharing my journey with these cards :) I have a few more to share in the days to come including a couple of really cute baby cards featuring Jemima Puddleduck and Peter Rabbit.
