Spotlight Technique with Shabneez

Happy Monday! It's  Shabneez here!  How was your weekend? I was busy demonstrating new craft products yesterday which was very enjoyable and in fact I have another couple of months of demos coming up. I'm up on the blog with a tutorial on the spotlight technique today.  This technique is used to emphasise particular areas of a card and I've shown two different ways this can be done using the Wishes with Magnolia stamp set. To begin, I took the stamp set and positioned the stamps individually before stamping with my stamp platform. Next I used a couple of circular dies and die cut areas from the image I created. I am drawn to colour pencils at the moment so I used my Chameleon pencils to colour in the images within the circles. To compose the card, I covered my card blank with paper then stuck on the stamped image and used double sided foam tape to adhere the circles. I stamped a sentiment from the same set and die cut it before

Tubby Craft inks on various bases with Priyadarshini

Hello everyone Welcome back.... My post for today is all about  Tubby Craft  inks. Tubby craft inks are water based dye inks and can be used for stamping, stenciling, water colouring and inking backgrounds. I always wanted to try using inks on other textured bases as well and fortunately today my post is all all about inking on different textures. Since they are water based, inking turned out to be very easy and fun to make. I am using 3 bases here, the first one is paper clay mould, the second one is burlap/jute and the last one is felt. Adding water to the inks make them move and blend freely.  Materials used: 1. Stamps     a.  Adorable runner     b.  Darling four    2. Inks     a.  Jet black       b.  Turquoise     c.  Lemon yellow     d.  Magenta     e.  Imperial red     f.  Liliac purple     g.  Lavender violet     h.  Emerald green     i.  Mustard yellow     j.  Tangy Orange 3.

Watercolored Florals with Mona

Hello Everyone ! Today I am on the Tubby Craft Blog with a card using Beautiful Stamp  Wishes with Magnolia Stamp  by Tubby Craft. I have colored this lovely stamp few times lately but I realized  I had not posted it on the blog. I did some no line water coloring with this stamp which took me for a while , but I am happy with my result.  I recently bought Venezia water colors from Germany and they blend beautifully on the cold pressed water color paper. I am really happy with the coloring and the blending. I fussy cut the rectangular panel from the stamped paper and fussy cut the stamped image from the sides and pasted on the black card base to give it some contrast. Finally heat embossed the sentiment from the  Fancy sentiment by Tubby Craft  stamp set to complete the card.
