a simple card

a simple card


Hi everyone, is it just me.... or is it just a little crazy at the moment? There just doesn't seem to be any time. Today I would like to share with you a card I have made and I am really pleased with how simple it is yet so effective.

I have created the background by sponging distress inks onto glossy card and carefully blending three colours together. A few die cuts later and a little ribbon and it's done.






Drop into Busy Becs and have a look at all the great new dies including MFT( My favourite things).

Supplies used:
Distress ink pads: shaded lilac, ripe persimmon, seedless preserves
Impression obsession dies: greeting set, tree frame
MFT die: File tab
memory box die: alphabet soup

Thanks for stopping by and having a look

see you soon,
Mandy

Turn your face to the sun

It's so hard to believe that it's November already and there never seems to be enough time to do all the  things that I want to do. I am sure you feel the same way.

for Bizzy Becs I would like to share with you a journal page I have created. The face is drawn in Prismacolor pencils on acrylic paint with various layers of ink and distress stains.


I have used extra heavy through a memory box stencil- texture wave, to create the texture in her hair. The colour in her hair is layers of acrylic paint and on top of the gesso distress stains in vintage photo, rusty hinge and wild honey.


the background texture is stamped and embossed using the darkroom door damask stamp


I don't have any real plan when drawing and art journaling I just add more layers and textures until I feel happy with the result.

Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to drop in to Bizzy Becs online store to grab some goodies. You can now Pre-order My favourite things dies (MFT).

Cu next time
