Crazy Crafters Blog Hop | Special Guest Nadine Köller

Welcome to the Crazy Crafters Blog Hop with special guest Nadine Köller. Nadine's blog had me mesmerised... clean and white themed cards really appeal to me - yet I don't make them often, funny that!  After a cup of coffee whilst viewing Nadine's gorgeous projects I decided on the below card to CASE - Copy and Selectively Edit

I love the background effect, and especially the colours,  and how there is a hint of the stamped design, however the randomness (is that a word?) of the technique freaks me out as you can't really control how your pattern will look - anyway, I've stepped out of my "control" zone and given this technique a go

I chose Peekaboo Peach, Flirty Flamingo and Sweet Sugarplum for my colours, I was a little bit heavy handed with amount of ink I applied to the watercolour paper with the cling wrap, and I was freaked out! (hahaha), but I walked away and left it to dry - I was pleasantly surprised when I returned, the colours weren't as intense as when I first applied the ink, they were more subtle, I was a little calmer now.

Next I stamped the large daisy from the new Daisy Delight stamp set (available 1st June) with Versamark and heat embossed with White Stampin' Emboss powder, then I sentiment. Instead for "splattering" the card, I used the tiny daisy heads stamp and applied my little dots, then stamped single mini daisies randomly. I mounted on Blushing Bride and Sweet Sugar Plum, then on the Whisper White card base.

I enjoyed the card so much I got adventurous and made a second!

This card highlights 3 of the gorgeous 2017-2019 In Colours - Powder Pink, Berry Burst and Lemon Lime Twist (my daughters favourite), I wasn't sure at first as the colours were so bright, but when I added the strips of Lemon Lime and Berry Burst cardstock, WOW I was so happy with the pop of the colour combo.

  1. Very pretty! Congratulations on overcoming your inner control freak so successfully! Your cards are lovely!

  2. WOW Sue...I adore them both BUT The 3 incolour card is my fave :) I love bright and cheery and this ticks both boxes. (Plus Green is my fave colour and I am addicted to LLT)
    The beauty of water colour is it fades as it dries ... what you think you ahev been heavy handed with will more than likely be quite alot lighter whenh dry
    TFS Sue
