Skating Together and Skating Pond Scene Die with Nicky

Hey Everybody!  Nicky back with you today with some inspiration from the most recent Hello Bluebird release.  I’m using the new Skating Together stamp set with a background created using the new Skating Pond Scene Die I stamped my Skating Together images onto Bristol Smooth cardstock using Archival Ink and watercolour painted them using Kuretake Zigs.  I highlighted some points and subtly glittered them using Stickles in ‘Crystal’.  I then fussy cut them out and set them to one side.

Autumn Gatherings with Nicky

Hi everyone!  I hope you’ve been enjoying our big August release, I know I’ve had so much fun creating with it all.  My card today features Autumn Gatherings in combination with the Birch Trees Dies. To make this card I started out with an A2 panel of Bristol Smooth watercolour cardstock.  I ink blended it using Peacock Feathers Distress Ink and blended it out so that most of the colour was at the top and sides.  I then took Antique Linen Distress Ink and blended the bottom of the panel and dotted in some texture.   I applied this panel...
