Back again...

It's been a while since my last post - too much work and too many other things keeping me busy here. But I'll try to keep up my blog more regularly again, so let's start with my first autumn card this year:

Leaves by Inkadinkadoo stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa, small leaves by HeroArts stamped with Fluid Chalks Burnt Sienna, sentiment by Kaleidoskop stampid with Memento Rich Cocoa. Design paper by Crea Motion. Highlighted with a white gelly pen and pink stickles.

I attended a stamping demo by Judi Watanabe from JudiKins recently. She used MicaMagic refill ink to create very rich and shimmery backgrounds. Here I tried to do something similar. I used metallic Palette refill inks to sponge the wavy line on the black cardstock (masking the rest of the cardstock). After this had completely dried, I overstamped the star images (JudiKins) and embossed them with green sparkling powder. The sentiment is stamped with Versamark ink and embossed with gold detail powder. I edged the black cardstock with a gold Krylon pen.
The card is much more sparkling IRL than on the photo!

I experimented with some new two-tone acrylic colors recently. They can be used as a quick and wonderfully shimmering background. I just brushed them onto white cardstock and overstamped with Palette Noir ink, added some white highlights with a gelly pen - voilà!

Flower stamp by Inkadinkadoo, sentiment by Magenta. Twin Color apricot-gold by Eberhard Faber.

And another card using the Twin colors, this time the applegreen-gold one. The main image was stamped onto a wooden paint chip. Swirls by Tim Holtz, branches by Penny Black, sentiment by Stempelmeer.

I'm so happy to be back in stamping and blogging world again! Please leave me a comment if you like the cards! Show you some more soon!
