Hello everyone, Happy Valentine’s day!!! Today I’m sharing ideas an inspiration using beautiful Neat and Tangled supplies.
I’m loving the cute images, sentiments, dies and stencils by Neat and Tangled. I really think these kinds of supplies will provide you will all the design elements you need to create beautiful, simple and original cards.
To add colour to all the cards in this post I ONLY used Nuvo shimmer powders. I didn’t use any other ink or pigment. Plop! the colours are pure awesomeness.
I’m sharing videoto share tips and ideas with you using all these crafty supplies.
In the video, you will see how easy is to blend the Nuvo Shimmer powder pigments to add colour to all the images in the cards today and how to apply 7 simple techniques to create backgrounds using the powders.
In the video I also shared the idea to make your own DIY shimmer sprays or aqua flow brushes to apply embossing resist techniques as I did for the card above.
For this card I used : Jump for Joy stamp set, Jump for Joy - Nice and Neat Dies, Mail Background stamp,Typed SentimentsSkinny Strips - Nice and Neat DiesandBox Nice and Neat Die, Love Mail - Nice and Neat Dies.
I’m also used a blending sponge and stencils to apply the Shimmer Powders on to the background panel above and in the video I show you how to this as well.
I also show you how to blend pigments on the paper when it is still wet and I’m sharing ideas and creativity to share the stretch the use of your supplies.
I also create the background above and the one below in one go using just one spray and a stencil.
For the card above I used : Slow and Steady, Slow and Steady - Nice and Neat Dies and Nesting Hexagons - Simply Stencil , Skinny Strips - Nice and Neat Dies
And I also made a more dramatic background using embossing resist techniques with stencils.
In several previous blog posts, I shared different ways to use the powders as they are great to create backgrounds but they can be used as liquid colours or watercolours.
You can make your own DIY sprays or pens using the powders. You can use a damp sponge to apply the pigments on images stamped images, embossed backgrounds. You can use them with stencils in different ways. You can use a roller to apply a solid layer of colour on cardstock… the sky is the limit and when you have super cute images like the ones I used in this post today you will also love coloring with these pigments diluted with water.
As a result, you will get shimmery colours like no other!
