Clean & Simple Cards and GIVEAWAY with Kasia

Hello again lovelies.. I'm here today with a set of clean & simple cards created with the Colour Artist Inks, Colour Embossing Powder & Uniquely Creative dies.

I heard on the grape vine a little while ago that the lovely Mel Struths had a thing for lightbulbs so was super excited when I got to turn my little lightbulb doodles into dies for Uniquely Creative. I had a million Colour Blast projects in mind when creating these dies and couldn't wait for them to be made. 

To celebrate the release of these dies, Uniquely Creative is giving away a set of the Lightbulb dies & the Scripty Sunshine die & a couple packs of Embellies too. For all the info how to enter read the info at the bottom of the email.

Now, lets get onto making some cards...   

For the backgrounds I cut down some watercolour paper to 5" x 7" and taped them down to a hardwood board with low tack masking tape. I wet down the paper with a wide brush and then dropped in little amounts of the Colour Artist Inks with a round paintbrush. 

I let each layer dry completely (you can speed up the process with a heat tool) and then wet down the surface again and dropped in more colour. 

For the greens & blues I used a combination of the Citrus, Lime, Grass, Mermaid & Oasis Colour Artist Inks. 

I did the same process here with three layers and while the last layer was still wet I sprinkled on some salt crystals and let them sit for a good few hours.. I wasn't patient enough to let them sit overnight, but if you are the effects would be a little more dramatic than on my background. 

For the above card I used a combination of the Spice, Sunburnt, Cider, Barley, Slipper & Berry Colour Artist Inks. 

I then die cut some lightbulbs, and sentiments from white cardstock and embossed them 3 times with the Bling & Stormy Weather Colour Embossing Powder, to get a lovely thick embossed effect. Don't forget to give your embossing powder a little shake before using it so that the embossing powder and sparkle mix well. 

I then created three 4.25" x 5.5" card bases, cut down a piece of glitter cardstock to 4" x 5.25" and die cut my coloured backgrounds with a cross stitch rectangle die and stacked these on top of one another to create the background for my cards. 

I then bundled up some silver and gold thread to layer under the sentiments and put together my cards. 

I also added a sprinkling of rhinestones and pearls around the sentiments to add a bit more texture and ground the sentiment a little more. 

This background was created in the same way but using the Spice, Cider & Citrus Colour Artist Inks.
