posted in: Cards, Stamps, Techniques | 0

Who doesn’t love chocolate and dogs? How about a chocolate colored dog? Well, then you are in luck because today’s handmade card project has both. Imagine challenged the Artists in Residence with three topics to choose from –Aubergine Color of the Month, chocolate and ‘What “wood” you do?’. When I saw a chocolate theme, I chose this fun bulldog stamped image and created layers of chocolate watercolored goodness using some of my favorite ink products. To see how I create this fun card head on over to the imagine crafts blog.2017_October_JN_Chocolate_detail1

Chiswick Mixed media cards from a Master-board.

On the Chiswick blog today with some weekend inspiration making mixed media cards using loads of products from Chiswick.
Combining different product is a great way of combining and experimenting with different products and what better way to just to play and have fun.
I combined some POP Paint with the beautiful stamp sets from Chiswick to make these fun cards.

The concept of a Master-board is to create a large sheet of mixed media artwork and then cut it into smaller pieces to use on other art works.
This is how I approached my cards I made.

These smaller pieces used on cards make for beautiful backgrounds and quick cards. And often these pieces look much better than the original piece of art created.
So the moral of the story is to just create – it will look amazing once it is cut down.

Hop on over to the Chiswick blog for a full step x step tutorial on how to create these cards.

This alphabet set is the creme de la creme for all projects. I can see titles stamped on my layouts, phrases on cards and words in my art journal.
