Tando - Under The Sea

This week on the -{Tando Blog}- we are going under the sea. I made this quick and easy card:

I painted 3 fish from the -{Mini Fish}- pack with gesso then, when dry, I used pens to colour them. I've added some doodles and that was it. Really easy colouring!

I've added a stamped background and a computer generated greeting.

Tando Father's Day

For this week's Anything Goes on the -{Tando Blog}- I've been playing with some of the #Stampendous goodies that are now being stocked and made a Father's Day card:

I stamped one of the stamps from the -{Mish Mesh}- set onto the card blank then painted 2 hearts from the -{Hearts Grab Bag}- with acrylic paint.

I sprinkled the large heart with the Aged Copper Embossing Enamel from the -{Bronze Frantage Kit}- while the paint was still wet. I then used the heat gun to bubble up the paint and embossing powder.

I used another stamp from the Mish Mesh set with embossing ink and Aged Teal Embossing Enamel from the -{Teal Frantage Kit}- and heated it with the heat gun. The Frontage Kits give gorgeous effects with very little effort!

I finished off with the greeting.

Tando June Colour Theme

 This month on the ~{Tando Blog}~ we've got a pastel colour theme:

I made a journal page:

I used ~{Modelling Paste}~ through the ~{Letters Stencil}~ and the circles from the ~{Tree and Leaves 3 Part Stencil}~. Once dry, I've used ~{White Gesso}~ over the whole page.
I used my fingers and acrylic paint to add colour to the page then used 2 of the stamps I made using Tando chipboard from ~{this post}~ with paint.
I added some washi tape, doodles, a cow stamp and a quote from Pinterest.

Tando May Colour Theme

This week on the ~{Tando Blog}~ we have a colour theme:

I made this card:

I mixed some of the ~{White Modelling Paste}~ with 2 drops of ~{Titan Buff Fluid Acrylic}~ then put it through the ~{Mini Brick Stencil}~.

I painted 2 of the ~{Mini Owls}~ , a leaf from ~{Mini Leaves 2}~ and a flower from the ~{Mini Flowers}~ with acrylic paint. All of these and other minis are reduced in price at the moment ~{here}~.

Once everything was dry, I used watercolour pencils and paint pens to add details, before finishing up with a stamped greeting.

Tando April Colours

This week on the ~{Tando Blog}~ is another colour week. I made this card:


I've used the ~{Mini Criss Cross Stencil}~ with ~{DecoArt White Modelling Paste}~ directly onto the card blank.

I've inked a tag and splattered water on it, then painted up one of the ~{Mini Owls 2}~ using DecoArt Acrylic Paints.

Finally, I've added lots of doodles, some ribbon, feathers, die cut shapes and a stamped greeting.

Tando Recipe Week

This week on the ~{Tando Blog}~, we have a recipe theme of 

1 stencil
2 stamps
3 flowers

Of course I made a quick and simple card:

I painted 3 of the ~{Mini Flowers}~ with Decoart Acrylic Paint and while they dried, used the          ~{Mini Clock Stencil}~ onto the card blank.

Next I've used a Stampotique text stamp with white embossing powder onto the mini flowers and then glued them onto some white flowers and stuck them to the card blank.

The second stamp is a Stampotique birthday stamp.

Tando - March Colour theme

This is the lovely colour palette we're using on the ~{Tando Blog}~ this month:

I've interpreted the beigey colour to be gold as there's a Golden Wedding Anniversary in my family this week!

I've used 2 hearts from the ~{Hearts Grab Bag}~ and painted them with acrylic paints, blending the colours and then adding painty dots and doodles.

The central heart is from the ~{Jewellery Hearts }~ and I've painted it with gold acrylic paint and added doodles and ribbon. I've heat embossed the 50 on some coloured card fixed behind it.

The card is finished with some ink splatters, a stamp and doodles.
