Monocromatic Spring

Hi Everyone


At WOW HQ this month is the theme of Spring.

I decided to use the stamps 'Make a Wish' and 'Lace' in my project.


I firstly made the background by using a leaf embossing folder from Sheena Douglas and white cardstock running this through my E Bosser.

I then used the technique 'monocrome with an acrylic block'.  I placed on my Slim Jim's black and white acrylic paint dots then squashed a further acrylic block on top of this making a pattern with the paint.  I then pulled them apart and transferred the paint pattern onto a piece of white cardstock, by placing the block onto the card.  I then let these dry.


The trees I used the stem from the 'Make a Wish' large dandelion and added on top, half of the lace stamp cut like a tree.  I then stamped out the lace a further 3 times and cut out the flowers. I used one on each tree and the rest were cut in half and used as decoration on the top and bottom of the card.

All the items were stamped and inked with Versamark and heat set with WOW ebony embossing powder.

The picture was then framed with black cardstock.

Get yourself some blocks - one colour and try some different techniques. Think outside the box with your stamps.

Spring Flowers!

Hello!
I love the fabulous picture that has been chosen as the inspiration picture for our current challenge: Spring. The pink blossom is just gorgeous, so I decided to created a little pink blossomed 'something' as my project this month!
I wasn't sure which pinks I wanted to use, so had fun experimenting a bit! Here are the results...
In the end, I chose to use flowers numbers 1, 2 and 4 from the sheet!
The flowers were attached to some springy wire, then added to a small wooden candlestick. I put some white card 'grasses' in there too, and included text paper and white cord as extra details!
Experimenting with colour mixes is great fun, it's amazing the difference in shades you can achieve just by adding a tiny tiny amount of powder!
Have fun,
Trish xxxx

These rings are so easy to make.  Just melt some Melt It powders and your chosen colour in a Melt Pot or small metal container and pour the melted powders into the various WoW Flower moulds available on the WoW website.

Sweet Laughter

Hello and welcome back to wow embossing powders.  This months theme is spring.  My project inspired by spring colours and some photos I took of flowers and my children in spring last year.

Sweet Laughter!


I have used wow embossing powders to transform my background page.  I used a stencil and texture paste and then applied the Metallic Gold Rich embossing powder over the texture paste. Heat set.


Close up 


 I used a number of photos I had taken and added them to my back ground.  To bring my photos into the background I used the same method as above but this time I used Bright white.  You get more of a distress look when applying to photos as the powder likes to stick to the photos.  You could spend some time with a paint brush and remove some of the excess powder.


Wow Products used:
WC01 Metallic Gold Rich Pale


WL01 Bright White

Spring flowers with love


This months theme is spring and I just love spring. It's my favourite season of all. Where I used to live spring ment the perfect time to go visit our little cottage far up in the mountains, going skiing, ice fishing and ridning snowmobiles. And yes, digging holes in the snow, putting down raindeer hides and catching a tan. Now it's warm days, spring flowers, warm asphalt and long walks with the dogs. I love it! And best of all, no bugs.

 I made this card inspired by the soft spring colors and spring flowers. I embossed the flowers in copper embossing powder and colored them using AquaMarkers. 


I love the foil trend that is so popular right now and wanted to try the Fab Foil, since I don't have a laser printer I used the bonding powder and I think it looks great for my first try. It's very shiny and pretty! 

I hope you liked my spring inspiration. See you next month, I'm looking forward to seeing what you make for the challenge!
