Rock Chick birthday card using Imala and Brusho

Hello

I hope everyone is managing to stay safe and well.  Today I am planning to finish sewing one of the blinds for our conservatory/extension.  It gets very hot in there because of the skylights so we bought some blackout material to make blinds.  Most of you will know how much I dread the heat, so hopefully this will do the job.




Today I am sharing a birthday card last month using one of the IMALA stamps by Toni Darroch and Carley Duff.


Supplies used:
Brusho
Imala Stamp - Rock Chick
Versafine Ink

You can see the process video here.

Journal Page: Sloth Mode On




I made this journal page on a few days ago.  I was recovering from a horrid migraine and felt like I was fighting the day, a sloth day as I like to call them, hence my sloth inspired page.  The background of this page was already coloured in distress inks.  I spirtzing a few stamps with some water to create a watermark effect and then added some sunflower stamps with distress inks and dragged the colour with a damp pain brush.  The sunflowers are cut and torn from a Carley Duff Design Team download.  I have used the Sloth charisma and die from Carley Duff's Signature Collection (you will note I added little bit of pink polish on the nails with a gel pen, difficult to see in the photo but I also added eyelashes with a Zig millennium pen).  I have printed the quotes and given them borders with Stabilo point 88 fine 0.4 pens.

Journal Series "Inspired by" ...

...The No.1 Ladies Detective Agency

Welcome to my first "Inspired by..."series journal page.  Whilst most of my journal pages are random I have a long list of inspirations for journal pages, such as books, films, songs, etc.  I thought it would be an ideal way to create a blog series.



This page started life as a mop up which was mostly bright orange.  This bright colour made me think of an audio book I recently listened to "Tea Time for the Traditionally Built" part of The No.1 Ladies Detective Agency series by Alexander McCall Smith.  I coloured the Imala stamp Day Dreamer using gel pens, cut into the image to make it look like the lady is wearing a scarf  this was also inspired by the same series of books my inspiration being the beautiful vibrant colours and patterns the ladies wear in Botswana.


To bring the page together I have added stamping including Savannah Stories stamps from Katy Sue Designs and Polkadoodles vintage text stamps.  I dug out all my bright orange, yellow, pink and green inks as well as lots of washi tape.  The words were printed on my computer, torn and dragged through Dried Marigold distress ink, these are the titles of the first three books in the series.



I used another off cut from the stamp pattern to create a tab.  I have become weirdly obsessed with creating tabs for my pages!  I've gone back through all my completed pages and added a tab to each.
