Celebrating Spring at Magenta

The Magenta DT members are celebrating Spring and we are showing you our creations to bring you the Spring feeling.

This is my take on the theme

I stamped the flowers with versamark and heat set it with white embossing powder. Than started to sponge the whole background with some yellow and orange colors of Distress Oxides. 

I removed the color from the flowers with a waterbrush and than start to color it again with a pink color of Distress Oxides and added some highlights with a colored pencil.

Play time with Distress Oxides    

This card is created by blending 2 colors of Distress Oxide ink onto the background. 

I placed the web stencil on the background and removed some ink with a wet kicthentowel. 

With the cats eye stencil I blended some extra color on the background.

Added some background stamps and adhered the stamped white embossed butterflies to the card.

Magenta DT Team - monoprints

On one Tuesday each month, Magenta feature DT member's tips and/or tricks in regards to a crafty topic. This month, the team is sharing different tips and ideas on ways to mono print or gelli print.

This is my take with the gelliplate: using Nuance

For this background I have sprinkled two colors of Nuance powders (Aquamarine and Spring Green) on the gelliplate and added a spritz of water. Than placed a piece of watercolor paper onto it.

This is a very easy way to create colorfull backgrounds.

Play time with Nuance

Hello Magenta fans!
Mariëtte here with some playfull Nuance creations and to help you to go play with Nuance yourself I have some step by step instructions as well.

Some step by step instructions

I am working on A5 size watercolor paper of 200 grams.
Sprinkle a color of Nuance on your craftsheet and add a spritz of water. Dip in your paper on several spots into the Nuance. And than dry your paper.

Than do the same with another color and repeat the above process. This way you can add layers on top of each other.
I have used the following Nuance colors: Jade, Purple, Golden Yellow, Coral, Berry and Ocean
Adhere white ink thru a stencil to create some white circles

Now I cut the A5 size background into a regular card and ATC.

Make some highlight spots onto your background by adding a bit of distress ink (mustard seed and abondoned coral).
I have also used some distress crayons for some little accents.

Take some background stamps and randomly stamp them with distress oxide inks onto your background. Use colors that matches your background.

Stamp some butterflies on your left over from your original background. I also added some more color to them with distress inks and coated them with a layer of thick embossing powder.

Add some lines in black and gold with the use of the sideback of an old credit card. I also added some splatters.

Last step is to add a sentiment and adhere the 

The final card is at the top of this post, and below is the final ATC.

I hope I have got you inspired and if so please share your creations with us on the Magenta Facebook fan page: Magenta Style Passion Studio
