AQUACOLOR CRAYONS - Blog War Challenge - Project

Hi All,

I hope you had a great weekend.

Here is my project using the Lyra Aquacolor Crayons.

Not only are the crayons great for vivid colouring of stamped images but they can also be used to create backgrounds like I have in this card on the White Gloss Card.

I stamped butterfly image on the front of the vellum in Coal black, the crayons were used on the back of the stamped image, this way it doesnt matter if u slighty go over the line while colouring, and the colours are bright enough to still be seen from the front.

I used the lavender stamp to create the grass and flowers, using a piece of scrap paper as a mask, the edge of the vellum was edged in Coal black ink also, and adhered to base card using vellum tape...

Have a Scrap-a-licious day,

Hi all,

Here is a card I created using the Paint Dabber Splash Technique which is featured in this months "Australian Cardmaking Stamping and Papercraft" Magazine (Vol. 15 No. 7) on Pages 74 - 77.

The technique and cards were submitted by one of our own very creative Kaszazz consultants - Michelle Smith.

When I first saw the cards , the first thought that sprang to mind was kids cards, fun, birthdays....

This techniques creates a very vivid, colourful and striking background with a unique textured effect and is very simple to acheive.

Here is my first attempt at using this technique......

I have used Pool Paint Dabber (ABD22466), Raspberry Paint Dabber (ABD22480), Blue card - Primary Pack (9782), White card (9014), Happy Birthday Script Stamp (4088KF), Cupcake Stamp (4136KF), Cupcake-Stripe SB Paper (4831), Coal Black Ink (72010), Aquacolor Crayons and added some Icestickles to the icing on the cupcake image.

Hi all,

Here is a cute little card which I actually created for last weeks Blog War Challenge and have only just had the time to post it now. Last week BW Challenge was to ccreate a card or LO featuring a pet or animals....

I have named her "Petunia Babe"..... as she is made with Petunia Bazzill and "Babe" named after her inspiration "Babe" from the movie.

So here she is ..

I'snt she gorgeous..(and I think she knows

Making this card brought back some childhood memories of when I made a paper mache` pig in primary school, painted it pink and added some daisies very simular to these ones. I have also decorated the back of the card but havent added the picture yet.

Happy Scrappin'

I thought it was about time I shared the cards we made last month when I visited Pam (from my upline) -- "waves to Pam - Hi" and the other girls...

These gorgeous cards were created by Naomi Elliot one of Kaszazz's very creative consultants .....arn't they just devine.

Hi All,

I can't believe its been 3 weeks since I have time has flown by - wish I could say I was having fun.

Appologies for my absence, but its been a real battle and difficult time (physically and emotionally) for me the past few weeks.

My dad has been un-well for over 7 months, 2 weeks ago he was hospitalized for 5 days on intravieness antibiotics 7 times a day... three days after he got home ( he should never have been sent home, but that is a long story), friday he was told by his specialist he had to go to the city hospital a.s.a.p. (5 hours away) to have partial amputation of his foot as he developed gangrene in the bone...(which wouldnt have appeared in the 3 days he was out of hospital..grrrr country hospitals) so that operation happened on sunday morning.... he still isnt out of the woods yet he has to heal without infection and fingers crossed they got all the affected bone.

Today there has been talk that he may have another operation as an Angiogram he had yesterday, revealed he has a couple of blockages... So we are not sure how much longer he will be in hospital for.... it could be a couple more weeks yet.

So on top of all this I havent been feeling 100% myself, I'm emotionally drained and I have lost my mojo at present, but it will come back.

Ending on a good note I recently got notification from Kaszazz that I have had some workshops I submitted accepted.

Cheers Jo
