Wow! April is almost here… 2019 is flying by! Makes the time that I spend creating all the more precious.

I had super fun this month, really enjoying the end results of my page.

I started with Dina Wakley Media – wallpaper – stencil in fuschia on a tangerine background. I then collaged a fab napkin that I had found with gold foil spots.

Next, I had a play with some texture paste flowers through an Art by Marlene stencil by The Crafter’s Workshop – TCW691 – Songful Flowers

Once I had those done… the Christine Adolph flower stamps by Prima just took over!

Three Techniques with Dye-na Flow for Cardmakers

Hi gorgeous people, today I’m going to be making some fast fun cards with Dye-na flow inks from Lulu Art!   Now Dye-na flow is not something I’ve used a lot so I’m going to have a play with 3 different techniques to create three different but equally beautiful cards.

Begin by prepping your watercolour card – cut it to size and add some clear embossed images to 2 card pieces.

Drops

Spray water over watercolour cardstock and drip on a rainbow of Dye-na flow, begin with one drop of each colour and only add more if needed.  Splatter with gold Gansai Tambi paint and leave to dry

Painting

Add Dye-na flow to a paint palette and use a dry brush to add to dry watercolour paper, previously embossed.  This gives a quite varied and tonal effect and looks really pretty.  I used a single colour – Periwinkle.

Pressing

Add a rainbow of Dye-na flow drops to a non-stick craft mat – I added the colours in the order of the rainbow so I didn’t make a muddy mess.  Then spritz lightly with water and press dry watercolour card (previously embossed) into the colour pool.  Press down with fingers to make sure all of the card has contacted the surface and then gently peel up and allow to dry.

Now it’s time to finish the cards!

Begin by adding embossing powder to chipboard elements – I used Obviously Black and Caesar’s Gold.

Add stamping to some of the card backgrounds.

Wrap each background in gold twine.

Mount card fronts onto coordinating backing card and adhere embellishments and we are finished!

And of course, so you can watch and play-a-long I’ve filmed a process video for you, focussed on how to make those yummy Dye-na flow backgrounds!
