BILDMALARNAS

Card One

I am delighted to be able to work with these wonderful stamps this month as a Guest Designer.  I have used the same stamp in two different ways to show the versatility of these stamps.

For this one I have used  rich colours and have chosen design papers that compliment the colours of the image.

Also I have used  different techniques on this sample and my second sample.

I have used a Spellbinders die to cut and emboss the image and then distressed with black ink.
I also used some small dies to create these flowers.


Techniques:

Medium:

Copics and Prisma pencils
Distressing Ink
Spray Glitter


Papers:

Pattern papers (Quixotic Paperie)
Plain (Crafters Companion)

Punches:

Leaf punches x 2
Dies used:

Marianne dies - flourishes, flowers and butterfly



Templates:

Bazzill Jewel - for creating the gem flourishes

Embellishments:

Black crystal gems

Card 2
As you can see this sample is very different from the first sample.  On this one I have used a softer pastel colours with a red as an accent colour.
The style of the card is clean and simple - straight lines and clean cut style.  The only equipment used for this sample was a guillotine.
I have added more embellishments to this card which gives balance to the design.
Techniques:
Medium:
Copics and Prisma pencils
Punch:
Butterfly
Embellishments:
Paper flowers  (Wildorchid)
Metal charm  (Quixotic Paperie)
Faux brads (QVC)

Thank you to Bildmalarnas for this chance to join their team as a Guest Designer.  I hope I have managed to inspire and express how much I enjoy working with these stamps!
Best wishes,

Fab cards Sharon. It's amazing how different an image can look in a different colour scheme. Love the rich colours on card one and the summery feel of the second one.
