Treats on Tuesday with Christine

Hi Everyone, it's Christine here with a little pencil colouring on black mixed media card.
This card was made by taking black mixed media card and spraying it with Distress Oxide sprays, (mixed media card will stand up to the water based sprays better than regular black card stock). Once it was dry I stamped the bird image on the card and used pencils to colour the image.

The distress sprays give a great mottled effect on the black and adds so much visual texture at the edges, closer to the image I used some pencil colouring to soften the background.

Ellie's creative Monday / Lundi créatif d'Ellie

An easy bound notebook: 

- Create a colorful background with Distress Oxide Inks, Broken China and Fired Brick. 
- Stamp the flowers and heat emboss in clear. 
- Remove the color from the images with bleach. 
- Mask the images and stamp the script in the background. 
- Add red to the centre of the flowers and the berries with a watercolor pencil. 

- Create the book by folding black cardstock, and white paper in half, use the 3-hole-binding to bind the notebook with waxed thread. 
- Cut the book to size. 

- Heat emboss the script in white on the black front cover. 
- Sponge with the same colors of Distress Oxide mentioned earlier over the black cardstock. 
- Stamp the word "NOTE" on white cardstock.  
- Assemble the front-cover as shown. 

- Add white doodling with a gelli roller or acrylic marker... and add white splatters! 

I hope you got inspired!

Les beaux dimanches de Nathalie / Nathalie’s Sunny Sundays

Depuis que je n’ai plus de chat qui patrouille dans mon jardin (j’ai perdu mon dernier à l’automne), j’ai un gros écureuil, très semblable à celui-ci, qui y prend ses aises, pour mon plus grand plaisir.


Ici, j’ai tout juste rehaussé l’image aux crayons de couleurs. Juste quelques tons de gris et bruns, et un tout petit peu de bleu, à peine esquissé en plaçant la pointe du crayon de côté pour un effet très doux.




Since I no longer have a cat patrolling my garden (I lost my last one in the Fall), I have a big squirrel, very similar to this one, which takes its ease there, for my greatest pleasure.


Here, I just enhanced the image with colored pencils. Just a few tones of grays and browns, and a tiny bit of blue, barely sketched out by setting the tip of the pencil aside for a very soft effect.

Super Saturday with Pam – Super Samedis avec Pam

Welcome back to Magenta Super Saturday!  I had so much fun making these cards.  I stamped and painted one large image then cut it into three pieces to create three cards.

I stamped the Floral Background stamp onto a piece of black watercolor paper with VersaMark ink, then embossed with gold embossing powder.  I taped the piece to a board then painted the flowers, leaves and berries with some beautiful Iuile watercolors that I found on the Etsy website. 
The watercolor paper I used is kind of delicate and to get a clean cut you need to use dies or a guillotine cutter. I let the piece dry well then used dies to cut out two 2 3/8” squares from one side of the image.  I used a guillotine cutter to cut a strip 1 5/8” x 5”.    I cut pieces of coordinating solid color cardstock to mat each of the images.  I also cut cream cardstock – 3 ¼” x 4 ½” for the square images and 3 ¾” x 5” for the vertical piece.  I stamped the sentiments and embossed the images on the cream cardstock (gold embossing powder for the happy birthday, clear embossing powder for the other two cards.) 
I positioned (but didn’t attach) each painted image on a piece of cream cardstock.  I wanted to add a bit of interest to the cream cardstock so I used VersaMark ink to stamp the small flower petal from the Petal Blossoms set a few times around the image and sentiment.
I adhered the cream cardstock onto pieces of solid cardstock, adhered the painted images and adhered everything to an A2 card.   
Thanks for visiting the Magenta blog today.
