My Creative Monday for Magenta - bubble, bubble ..

3 cards and an ATC from one A4 gelli monoprint .. 

I've used the lollipop stencil on the monoprints
.. I thought they were shells, really!

Fish.. fish.. 

and even more fish...  

... and a dragonfly on the ATC. 

I LOVE the distressed look on the monoprints; edges and white space:
.. white spaces are interesting to use in collages like this!!

This was the A4 sized monoprint I used!

Hope you liked it!!

My Creative Monday for Magenta - some bling

Some bling this time:
on the flower hearts (from real glass)
and distress stickles on the berries.  

On al the cards I stamped the flower bacground stamp and heat embossed it with white heat-embossing. 

I've used various Nuance colors to color the embossed images.
In some areas I added a hint of extra color with a watercolor pencil and/or marker.

My Creative Monday for Magenta - a technique

Using a less quality of  paper has its advantages. 

This is the technique I've used on the ATC above and the card further down : 
Sponge a very colorful background with distress inks as shown. 
Dry it very properly. 
Heat emboss a stamped image with open space with white embossing powder.
Add some water to the insides of the image with a brush, and the color will soak into the paper.  
Easy isn't it? 

On the card above I additionaly splattered some water on the background to add interest.
To get the collage of the stamped images, I had to mask the front flower, of course.
