Hi, it's been while since I posted some new projects. I'm so sorry for such a long delay. You know when everything happening at once in your life and you don't know when to start and what to do first.
We had beautiful Christmas here in London visiting our friends in Richmond. Having fun especially with these two fellas. :0) No snow, just rain and cold wind. Having long walks and watching bright stars in the evening. Thinking of our dearest family back in Slovakia.
Now, lets move! New Year 2016 started so did all my craft projects. Here is my New Years resolution I will work harder to deliver you more tutorials and videos, introducing you all new techniques, bringing you all news from papercraft industry and share all my new projects and ideas.
My first two projects created this year are for Poppystamps new January release 2016.
We have fantastic Blog Blitz running at Poppystamps Blog right now. You can win two fabulous craft dies each day. Pop over for more info. Here are my creations.
I'm learning watercolour technique at the moment. Practicing on watercolour paper. It's really big fun! You will never know what you create till your paper dries out! Thought that rich spring green background would be perfect match with new Poppystamps Tic Tac Toe Love craft die.
I was also playing with dimension effects. As you see hearts, x and os are pushed in while their frame boxes are coming out. I didn't use any foam pads, the trick is in layering.

My second card should bring you lots of fun and smiles. I was again playing with watercolours, but this time when the paint dried I ran whole background panel through my die cut machine to create beautiful polka dot texture. I love Poppystamps Jourdanna Collage Die. It gives your projects instant pattern and structure!
Then I had idea to hang Eiffel Tower on the balloons and create some movement on my card. So I tied black embroidery strings on each balloon and securely adhere behind stamped and die cut tower. Do you like it?
