I am just a little bit excited to be teaming up with the lovely Alisa Tilsner from South Australia and we are going to be known as Stampin' Down Under.
We are planning some fun classes for you in the near future! In the meantime, we are getting our feet wet by bringing you some short (there's only two of us, ya know) blog hops, starting with this one! We have both picked a card the other has made and CASE'd (Copy And Selectively Edit) it, creating our own versions!
I loved this sweet card Alisa designed because it showcased watercolouring and the beautiful new stamp set called Nature's Beauty. For every Nature's Beauty stamp set sold here in New Zealand, $4.50 is given back to mental health organisations! I love that we can all help in this area of our health system just by buying this set!
My version is watercoloured just as Alisa did, but then I flipped my card, added a few more card strips, including copper foil for a bit of bling. I also stamped my entire card base, tone on tone, with a snow image to create visual texture. But I didn't stop there, I was on a roll!
My next card features the beautiful fox image, using the same watercolour technique, I brought in some more copper foil, added a few more layers and a little Bakers Twine. I also stamped the snow image again, but only over part of the base this time, before adding texture using the Subtle Embossing Folder. Phew - I threw the whole catalogue at this one!
I have had a sneaky peek at the card Alisa has created using one of my own as her inspiration. Her take is rich, warm and vibrant so make sure you hop on over to take a look!
