Simple Sketchy Stamped Tag For Fiskars

I'm a little bit obsessed by contemporary sketchy looks at the moment so when I saw the stamp that comes with the Fiskars Continuous Stamping Wheel™ my brain went 'Ooo! That would look good just as it is with a touch of bright watercolour - clean and simple!' You can see how I made this one if you pop on over to the Fiskettes blog.  The colour is provided by the ZIG Art and Graphic pens and a ZIG Watercolour System BrusH2O Waterbrush. have some sketchy fun!

Just A Bit Of A Sharing

Well look at that! It is Thursday all ready. I thought I would share a couple of things today, apologies for not having any finished items to show but how about some news and a work in progress? I was having a bit of a play this week with my ZIG Art and Graphic Twin pens, as you guys know they are one of my favourite items in my colour medium tool box. The ZIG Art and Graphics have a brush tip and a bullet tip, in case you…


Kind Hearts And Go-To Shapes

Hearts are one of my favourite motifs, it is my Go-To shape, I return to them again and again in my art. There is something about the shape and form of the heart symbol that works so well in so many compositions. Then you have all the different emotions that the heart symbol embodies and can give to a piece. I have a random heart to show today, it was an unplanned, growing with the moment, card I made in my Kuretake demo a few weeks ago. It is…


Being Yourself

The thing about Bank Holiday weekends is that the following week is shorter - which is good right? Of course it is! But it does mean that I'm thinking it is Wednesday when actually it is Thursday. Am I the only one? You guys can back me on this right? As it is Thursday and I haven't posted since Monday I thought I would drop in and post a very quick make from my Kuretake demo last weekend. I've used the ZIG Art and Graphic Twin Watercolour markers for…


Looking For Some Ideas With Resist Stamping?

Hello all, hope that where ever you are you have some sunshine because there certainly isn't any here in London. But then if you are living here yourself or watching Wimbledon you would know this too. *sigh* So I am desperately sneaking sunshine, please send some if you have any spare! Meanwhile an update on my latest article in Simply Cards and Papercraft issue 99 It is a resist stamping article using several different methods to make a resist, not just heat embossing, so if you fancy expanding your resist stamping techniques…

All In The Illustration

I love experimenting as you know and I love trying my hand to different things, again this won't be too much of a shock to those of you who regularly pop by my blog.  Well today I have one of my own illustrations to show. I've been doing a lot of work with watercolours and I just love how watercolour effects look with a clean black line so I thought I would try making a little birthday card using this look. The watercolours I've used are the ZIG Art…


Kuretake Challenge Time

Ok so are you up for a Kuretake challenge? This time the theme is Red, White and Blue with a touch of bling - perhaps something to do with some jubilee or something going on in Britain last weekend? You remember? The long weekend I kept going on about? I thought I would go a bit Punk on the theme, part of this street grunge phase I seem to be going through at the moment. I've made an ATC using ZIG Art and Graphic Twin watercolour markers. The stamps are the…

Inspiration Monday {Rainbows}

I'm starting this week with a HUGE splash of colour for my La-La Land Crafts Inspiration Monday make. Be warned it is COLOUR OVERLOAD! I've used one of my favourite Lukas - Lil' Rocker Luka, he makes me want to get my guitar out - I can't actually play it, but I keep meaning to learn! Well the La-La Land Crafts Inspiration this week was Rainbows, so I might have taken it a bit literally!  I called this one School of Rock with the Hero Arts Formulae background you see? The background…


A Tag And A Couple Of Fond Farewells

Hey All, I have a tag for you today using the lovely Paper Smooches Promenade stamp kit available over at the Make The Day Special shop. I've used the ZIG Art and Graphic Twin pens for this make and you might recognise the shape! I did say that it was one of my favourite tag shapes at the moment. You can download a free template for it with my project over at the Make With Me website if you would like to use the same shape. ***** Well, as this…
