- I started out by laying down some colour. I had a few different hues of blue and green, but the “shading” wasn’t dramatic at all.
Stop by the Technique Tuesday blog to see what everyone else did with this lovely set!

The layout is this week’s DECONSTRUCTED SKETCH and it’s awesome. I never think of simple sketches like this and I should – it was a good way to use a bunch of different patterns on one card without being so busy! Head over to the Deconstructed Blog and check out the details!

I coloured her with copics and did a little shading with my pastel chalk pencils. (White and black) All the papers are from My Mind’s Eye and I was hoarding them like crazy – but I’m glad I used them for this card. lol…

It’s reveal day for this month’s Greenhouse set from Technique Tuesday.
Isn’t it pretty? I stamped the image a few times on watercolour paper and embossed with white embossing powder. Then I misted with a few glimmer mists and dylusions ink sprays.
I love that it can be messy and free-form and come out looking so good! SO much easier than colouring with Copics, hahaha..
I stamped the sentiment on velum and wrapped the ends around the back to I didn’t have to deal with the whole adhesive/velum issue! Whatever’s easiest, right?
Here’s a look at the stamp set:
I love the font this month!

- Stamp image with versamark ink and emboss with white embossing powder onto watercolour paper
- Mist Dylusions Ink sprays onto paper
- Mist sprays with water to blend, and to create a pooling effect
- WITHOUT blotting, dry the mists. (this is what creates the watermarks)
Neat effect, right? By letting the inks pool they sit inside the embossing and the image pops out from the background!
Happy Valentine’s Day!
We don’t really do much around here besides little candy gifts and cards, but I think it will be a nice day!
It’s time for a new Deconstructed Sketch, and here’s today’s card:
- I just love this new set from There She Goes called The Doxie With Moxie, especially because I have a little wiener dog of my own now!! Since she’s been around we’ve made a lot of wiener jokes and this set warms my heart!
- So the little city-scape is part of the Doxie set so it was really easy to put together this little scene. The only tricky stamping was the “shadow effect” on the buildings – it’s super easy though. First, stamp the image in black, and second, stamp the image in grey ink and offset it slightly. DONE!
- The sketch is this week’s Deconstructed Sketch:

- I was having so much fun creating these cards with Valentine’s colours that I didn’t even notice it’s resemblance to graphics from my favourite show...
- I made these for today’s CAS challenge: Love Is In The Air, so naturally I pulled out my fluid acrylic inks and mists in pinks and reds because they are the colours of Valentine’s Day.
- I did the splatters first, dried the cardstock with my heat tool, then I stamped the sentiment in Versamark and embossed with white embossing powder.. Really simple and fun!

It went through a lot of different permutations (white, all-black, all green/gold) and after all my fussing I ended up with a background I absolutely love! One of my favourite elements are the hearts.
They were stamped with archival ink then I used black paint to add shading around the outside and it ended up with the colors emerging from below... So cool!
This quote is so perfect for my life right now... My ulcer is 100% stress-related and I really do need to uncomplicate my life, so doing art like this is extremely cathartic and necessary.
