Tando Card Week

This week on the Tando Blog the theme is cards: 

I've used a small circular gel plate to make the background in layers, making sure each layer is completely dry before adding a new one.

Layer 1: turquoise acrylic paint

Layer 2: using the Numbers Stencil add lilac paint onto the gel plate

Layer 3: using the Grid Round Stencil add lilac paint onto the gel plate

Final layer: titan buff acrylic paint and then pull the print straight away onto the card blank.

I've finished off with a butterfly stamp and 'miss you' because we're all missing someone or something right now.

Tando colour theme - September

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

I'm continuing with the Twinchies:


I've added some text washi tape to the Twinchie base and then used acrylic paint blended over the top.

The compass is part of the Industrial Twinchie pack and I simply painted it with acrylic paint.

I finished off with some randomly positioned Aged Copper Embossing Enamel and a word sticker.

Tando August Colour Theme

This is August's Colour Theme for the Tando Blog:

I've continued with the twinchie theme.

I've painted the base with acrylic paint and then added paint through the Stitches Stencil and then added paint splatters.

I've painted one of the Mini Book Plates and once dry, I used a dry brush and a very small amount of white paint to give it some detail.

I've then finished off with a stamped image, some doodles and a quote.

Tando - Stencils

This week on the Tando Blog the theme is stencils and I've made a very quick card:

The stencils are perfect as a background for a stamped image, keeping it clean and simple.

I've inked thought the Giraffe Mini Stencil, which is one of my favourites for a simple background.

All that is needed then is a focal point and a greeting.

Tando July Colour Theme

This is the colour theme for this month on the Tando Blog:

I've made another Twinchie

I've painted the base of the twinchie with acrylic paint and then dabbed paint through the leaf part of one of the 3 part Vine layering stencils.

I then painted 3 of the Mini Flowers and one of the Mini Leaves 2 with acrylic paints. 

I've then stamped a text stamp and doodles to finish everything off.

I've made another Twinchie:

I've used the semi circle from the Industrial Pack

I painted the base and then the semi circle with acrylic paints. I've used the Dots Stencil onto the base and a text stamp.

I've given everything some doodles and then finished off with a stamped bird and a quote.

Tando - Arches

The theme this week on the Tando Blog is arches:

I applied Modelling Paste through one of the Flourish Layering Stencils and when that was dry, everything had a coat of Everlasting Chalk Paint.

When that was dry I applied some Brusho powders in Turquoise  and Lime individually and sprayed them with water, letting them flow around the stencilled parts. 

I added some spray inked splatters and doodled the edges, finishing off with a stamped image and a quote.
