Fun Sunday – magic card: you brighten my day!

Hi everyone. I have bought the “watts up” stamp set from Simon Says Stamp. It arrived with my other purchases soon after my order confirmed. I knew at once what should I do with it when I first saw it: a magic card. I haven’t made a magic card before so I searched online and found a video teaching how to make a magic card: http://youtu.be/VLH_9s0DJ-s . So I used the “watts up” stamp set and followed the instruction from the video, and made this card

For the card inside, I stamp the light bulb stamp from the set with memento ink and coloured it with my newly bought Copic markers. I coloured the background with mustered seed and wild honey Distress ink.

I used a dark card stock bought from a local store as card base. I applied versa mark ink and embossing power to make a sun shine pattern. Then I adhered the magic card onto the card base.

As you can see, I made a mistake when I cut the window frame :p

Fun Sunday- Happy mid autumn festival

People now start making happy autumn card. We Chinese, also celebrate autumn in the Mid-autumn festival. The mid-autumn festival is on the 15th august of Chinese calendar. We eat moon-cake, carry and play lanterns, and also celebrate the beauty of the moon. It is a really fun and warm festival. I especially love this day.

Therefore, I have made two cards for the festival. I watched the video from different artists of how they create a galaxy background, by pressing the paper on distress inks. I used the same technique for the first card.

For the second one, I just colored it with water colour pencils only.
