I totally love the Rollagraph, but there is only so much you can do in either black ink or embossed, so I decided it was time to get some other cartridge colours to use. Here I used the Ancient Page Neptune (blue) and Plum Wine (pink) with the Dogwoods wheel (which was in the July product release). I then stamped with the medium butterfly stamp using my favourite inks - the Colorbox chalk inks and cut them out. The Ice Blue and Prussian Blue match great with the Neptune ink don't you think? And the Orchid Pastel and Dark Peony match well with the Plum Wine? I was impressed! The butterflies are stuck with tape runner (or DST) down the centre and the wings folded upwards so they look like they have landed on the card.
I have also been working on some technique workshops. This one uses the Circle Trio stamps and Perfect Medium to give 3 different effects. One uses the Pebbles Inc chalks, and 2 use Perfect Pearls - one stamping on, the other stamping off. The chalks give a lovely "cloud" effect whereas the Perfect Pearls are all shimmery and gorgeous! If you are interested in learning these effects/techniques just email me and I will organise to have a future workshop based around these.
And finally, I used the MondayMojo sketch (vaguely) to create this card. Tell me, is this look something that appeals or do you prefer a more modern look? Leave a comment below.
