Gradient Leaves With Penny Black

Hi everybody! Today I have a CAS card to share that I made using my beloved Penny Black goodies. Here it is:


I started with a white cardbase. First, I used my ink blending tool to apply ink all over the front. Then I trimmed a panel from white cardstock to fit the front and die-cut various leaves from it. The tiny leaflets from Penny Black are perfect for this! Now I adhered the panel to the card and stamped the sentiment. Finally I added clear sequins. I hope you like it! I'll enter it to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge CLEAN AND SIMPLE. 
Thanks for stopping by!

Masking With Dies (Video)

Hello! I finally finished the promised video on a fun masking technique. I created my own masks with dies and wanted to share this with you, because you can use a lot of fun inking techniques with this, even really wet watercolor techniques without the fear of bleeding ink under the masks.

Here are two different cards I made:


I used the big word dies from Winnie & Walter here, but you can use this technique for more delicate dies, too. One sample is THIS CARD. So many possibilities! Just have fun and play around.

Here comes my video. Or watch it on YouTube.


I hope you enjoy!


Because I created my own backgrounds, I'll enter these cards to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge "MAKE YOUR OWN BACKGROUND".
Thanks for visiting!
