PaperArtsy Challenge : White spaces again

Still inspired by Ellie Knol, I made another CAS card for the PaperArtsy challenge
This time I used Distress Stains (Faded Jeans, Broken China, Dusty Concord and Wild Honey) and an acrylic block
The stamps are HP1007 and ID04, stamped with archival ink coffee
The die is Sizzlets Dragonfly #3

PaperArtsy Challenge : White Space 2

Another card for the PaperArtsy challenge. I was inspired by Ellie Knol's lovely CAS cards
For the background I used Distress Inks (sprayed with water and picked up on an acrylic block) - Peeled Paint, Forest Moss, Shabby Shutters and Aged Mahogany
The stamps are HP1007 and ID04, but stamped with Archival ink - tree branch
The die is PaperArtsy "Branch" (by Lin Brown I think), although I cant find in on the PA website to add a link (sorry)

PaperArtsy Challenge : White Space

The latest challenge over at PaperArtsy is White Space

I went with a very simple design for my card
I used Distress Ink Twisted Citron through stencil 023 by Claire Lloyd
then stamped a lovely flower stamp I got from PaperArtsy as a gift with one of my orders, and finally the "with love" from JOFY 23
I painted the flowers with Fresco Paints Tango and Yellow Submarine

PaperArtsy Challenge : Resists II

I decided to make another card for the PaperArtsy challenge : resists
This card was inspired by Jo Firth-Young
I used Fresco paints for the background (Stone and Chalk)
Then I squished embossing ink through stencil 023 (Clare Lloyd)
and covered with embossing powder and heat set. These are the lozenges down the right side. This bit I am most dissatisfied with, as I don't think it goes very well with the rest of the card now the card is finished.
Anyway, I then covered the card with Tango, Smoked Paprika and Yellow Submarine Fresco paints
Next Stone through stencil 11 (JOFY)
I wiped back the paint from the embossed area and stamped with JOFY14 and JOFY33
I coloured the stamps with more Fresco paint : Granny Smith and Tinned Peas, London Bus, Tango and Yellow Submarine

PaperArtsy Challenge : Resists

The challenge on PaperArtsy is resists, and this is my entry

I went old school with a faux batik effect for my card

I used a Tim Holtz Cargo stencil, and stamped clear embossing ink through it, then used clear embossing powder
Next I used distress inks (cracked pistachio and blueprint sketch) in Leandra's corner-corner-side technique
I then put a clean piece of paper over the car and ironed it intil all the embossing was lifted
Next I used Distress ink Brushed corduroy to distress the look
For my main stamping I used HP1110
and in the background Mini 44 with archival leaf green and cobalt
The word is from Stampers Anonymous Classics #1
