Shy violet and frustration-inked background

Have you ever been so stuck on a card that you have fuzzy cut it twice? Once with a border and once without? And then been so frustrated on what to do with the actual that you’re almost just throwing away the image? Well this happened to me, on this card. It’s possible because it is yellow. I am not very good with yellow. So how did it end up as a card?

Well… I got out one of my copic refill ink bottles and just tossed some ink down on the blank card, then I got a cotton pad which I poured more ink on and just rubbed it on the white background. And there we go. It wasn’t supposed to be pretty, or planned, or anything. In fact I liked how it just showed my frustration somewhat, hahaha. I made a sentiment text and printed it out and layered it between the inked background and the coloured image.

A perfectly reasonable way to react when you cannot think of what to do, right? haha. I really quite like it, though, and I will definitely do more cards like it. Although… it will be more intentional next time! Maybe I should do a tutorial on it then…

And the image? That is Shy Violet by Tiddly Inks. The card is for the new Tiddly Inks anything goes challenge. Come join in, will you?

The shy pot plant

It is time for a new challenge over at Tiddly Inks. This time it is an autumny colour collage you can use for inspiration. I’ve stuck with most of the colours, apart from maybe the orange. The stamp I decided to use for this is one of the stamps you get in the Shy Violet set. It’s been coloured in with Copics. You can find the list of colours below.

I’ve used a text sentiment from Lili of the Valley, and flowers from The Hobby House and Wild Orchid Crafts.

Copics used: (pot) E42, E43, E44, E47, E49, (table) W1, W3, W5, W7, (flower) R81, R83, R85, R89, (leaves) G40, G82, G94, G99

Shy Violet

It is Tuesday and time for a new Tiddly Inks challenge. This time it is anything goes!! How easy, right?! Or in my case, super hard! I spend far less time choosing an image when there’s a specific theme, than I do when I can choose whatever I want. I am awkward though, I know…

In the end, the decision fell on Shy Violet. The listed stamp is not just one, but two stamps. I used the other stamp, the flower, for my release card, and I thought it was time to use this cutie as well! All coloured in with Copics, of course. I went for a rather pale look for once, which I tend to find hard to do.

The papers are Lili of the Valley which I cut out using GoKreate dies and distressed the edges with purple. To jazz it up a bit I used extra distress ink on the second background and added frantage to some of the layers. The decorations are made with various goodies from Noor Design (the butterflies), Wild Orchid Crafts (the flowers) and Live and Love Crafts (the pearl chain, the berry flower and the lace). The ribbon I purchased online from a dress shop. Isn’t it pretty?!
