Last of the Inkylicious samples

Most of my remaining samples use the lattice background or the Almanac background. For this first one I swirled distress ink pads in mustard seed, spiced marmalade, worn lipstick, shabby shutters and broken china onto my large inky mat. I sprayed it with water and then placed some watercolour paper on top. when it was dry (and ironed so it was flat) I stamped the background with versamark and used gold embossing powder. The little circles were filled with diamond stickles.
A simple wedding card, using silver embossing powder, distress stickles and spun sugar and antique linen distress inks.
This simple sympathy card was stamped in memento black and coloured with a range of pastel promarkers. I cut a frame using Go Kreate arched window dies. The dots of liquid pearls finished it off.
Very similar, but this time I used some tree stamps to create a little scene.
I realised I had created lots of very feminine cards, so I thought I would try and use the almanac background to produce some more masculine cards. There are lots of different inks and sprays on this one! The embossing folder is a Darice one and the leaf die is sizzix. I don't think this one made it onto the show, but my Tag Bag did!
This  tag bag was made from 2 large tags and some concertina folded card, and I got the tutorial from here. The inkylicious large tags are ideal to make little gift bags with.

Lots of walnut stain and wild honey Distress ink on this one, as well as some gold mica sprayed on the Marianne die cut. I didn't spot this one on the show either.  I hope you have enjoyed looking at my samples as much as I enjoyed making them. Thanks for looking!

Goodness Sally - what a spread! I love your arched window sympathy card. The use of Stickles or liquid pearls is utterly effective with the trellis pattern too. It is the first which is my favourite - the sentminent is terrific & I love the way your embossed trellis glows against the inked background. The sparkly glitter just adds that suggestion of bling & I love your use of navy rather than black which would have been a bit stark/sombre. Your soft background of the sentiment panel continues the colours of the main background beautifully (& yet more mutedly)........ hope all that makes certainly got my brain working overtime with that.

Fabulous cards.

I blame you entirely for my recent purchase of several Inkylicious stamps! :o) I'm having a wonderful time with the floral stamps, they look so vintage.

A fab array of artwork Sal, as you might imagine the tree behind the arch window didn't pass me by on the show.

My worn paint stamp arrived yesterday so might get a play in later.

I still haven't managed to watch all the show (I recorded it thank goodness) but I did see several of these in the part I have watched. I loved both the arched window ones. You did really well with your samples Sally and all your designs were fabulous.

I must try to remember to watch the show when OH takes the dog out for his walk tomorrow. In the week since he retired that's the only time I get to choose what's on TV. I'm heartily sick of football already I can tell you and it's only been a week, lol!
