April Colour Theme for Tando

This month's colour theme for the Tando Blog is this:

I'm continuing with the Twinchies:

I gave the Twinchie a coat of White Gesso and then stamped a text stamp onto it. I then used spray inks by adding drops from the spray and adding water until I got a blend I liked.

I then painted a piece from the Twinchie Industrial set with acrylic paint and added some embossing powder to it. I then added more drops of spray ink and layers of embossing powder until I was happy with the look.

I finished off with a stamped image, some doodling and a couple of words.

Tando - Stencils

This week on the Tando Blog we are using stencils:

I've used a gel print as a background and used an older stencil on that (yet again I've used one not in the store!). I tore the edges and stuck it onto the black card that comes in the packaging.

I then used the Rings Stencil on the card base adding more rings to increase the height.

I've added a stamped image, some washiest tape and a stamped greeting.

Tando Colour Theme - March

Here is the colour theme for this month on the Tando Blog

I've made another Twinchie:

I glued a piece of the Harlequin Extra Thin to the  Twinchie the gave it a coat of White Gesso.

I then used watercolours to get a background I liked. It took a few layers to get there, then stamped on the harlequin.

I finished off with a stamp, doodles and a phrase from a book.

I'm continuing on with the Twinchies:

I created a circle of layered acrylic paints and then used the layer that came off the  Mini Clock on my last card I made.

I've added doodles, a stamped image and some words.

Spray Inks for Tando

This week on the Tando Blog we're using spray inks. I made this quick card: 

I've masked off some of the Giraffe Stencil to make it smaller, then masked off the card completely before spraying lightly with spray ink.

I've used 4 different colours of spray ink onto one of the Mini Hearts until I got the mixture I wanted. Doing this, the heart was so wet the front and back layers came off so I now have 2 more hearts to use. I've inked the edges of the heart and stamped onto it.

I sprayed one of the Mini Clocks with black spray ink. Once this was dry, I've lightly dabbed the clock and added Aged Copper Embossing Powder and heated. 

I've torn washi tape and added it to the card blank, then stuck everything in place, finishing off with a stamped greeting.

Tando January Colour Theme

For this year's colour themes on the Tando Blog I'm going to be doing Twinchies as two different sets were released late last year.

This is the first colour theme:

I painted the base of the twinchie dark blue and then used PVA glue to crack the beige paint. 

I've painted a Mini Butterfly then stamped and doodled onto it before finishing off with a stamped word.

Very quick and easy apart from the glue drying.

Tando December Colour Theme

This month's colour theme for the {Tando Blog} is this gorgeous set:

I've given the {Artist Trading Coin} a coat of {White Gesso} then added {White Crackle Paste} that I'd mixed with some acrylic paint to, across parts of it.

Once dry, I blended acrylic paint over the base and added ink to show up the cracks. Then added some paint dabs and doodles.

I've painted some {Mini Snowflakes} white and added glitter glue onto them.

Here's all 12 of them from this year:
