Prickly Plants Planner Clips and Hunkydory Spectrum Noir ColourTint Review

Hello all

I was asked by Hunkydory to review some of their products, so today i will be reviewing the new Spectrum Noir ColourTint Pencils.

The pencils are so easy to use and they blend really smoothly

I used the Prickly Plants Stamp set and wanted to create some fun bookmarks with them.
I started off by stamping out the images onto card using Archival Ink. The images stamp out crisp and with no smudging.

I then use the ColourTint pencils to colour them in before cutting out the pieces. Next i used double sided tape to mount them onto thick card and cut them out. Finish off by adding a large blob of glue to the back and press the larger paper clips into the glue, leave them to dry overnight before using them.

The pencils can be used as they are or used as watercolour pencils by adding water. I used a water pen to colour the stamps and get a more vibrant colour.

Bleeding Art Challenge Show Us The Love

Hello all

i am back with my entry for the February challenge over at The Bleeding art challenge.

The cube was covered in tissue paper and then a stencil was used over the top. The whole thing was then painted using DecoArt Fluid Acrylic in Magenta.

The Hearts were stamped onto card and then stamped over with a texture stamp before being coloured in with water paints.

I like to use small alphabet beads to add words to mixed media projects.
I added Art balls around the top and painted up a small wooden house which i stamped on.
I then stamped out the large hearts doing two of each so i could sandwich the copper wire into the center. 
You need plenty of strong glue to hold the hearts up.
I then sprinkled on loads of pearls.

I used products from these brands
