A quadruple post-Joanna Sheen,Crafters Companion, Jayne Nestorenko and Flowersoft!

I have soo soo many cards to put on my blog i have made over the last few weeks, im going to have to do a few multi posts to catch up or else you wont see the pictures before the next lot of launches.

First is a sample for Joanna Sheen - Pamela West Collection 2.
This time the card is made using the wonderful black & White image on the second cd.
I used Derwent Watercolour pencils, so when printing the image i left it to dry overnight, before using the them, but ofcourse printing is perfect to use Promarkers or Copics, as it doesnt bleed! Make sure you use a good quality copier paper though,not card as the pens will then bleed!.
I used Word Art from Microsoft Word for the Sentiment.

The next card is for the Popcorn Kids Pick of the Week,this week by Crafters Companion on Create & Craft/Ideal World

This card is made using the popcorn kids decoupage image,backing papers and sentiments/toppers from the new cd.

And this card is for the launch of Patchwork Polly by Jayne Nestorenko.
This is Jenny, i used Copics to colour the stamped images, using the patchwork sqaure,which comes with the stamp set, for the backing papers and the little embelishment button flower stamps, i stamped multiple times and mounted to the card using Collal Glue Gel. The flowers in the main pictures were stamped, using the masking technique, this is where when having stamped one set of flowers, stamp again onto a spare piece of card and cutting out, spraying it with the re-positionable Crafters Companion Stick &Spray, then placing the extra image over the stamped image on the card and this gives the effect of images behind or infront of each other, depending on where you mask off, besure not to use too thick a card for you mask though, as this will give you and edge that isnt stamped, so thickish paper is ideal, as sits flush to the printed image you want to add to.

Patchwork Polly & Friends by Jayne Nestorenko-Jenny

And finally, but not least.
This Easel Card is made using the wonderful Bicycle stamp from Flowersoft.

I stamped the image onto Acetate using Stazon, so it dries, then on the reverse of the inked image, i coloured using Promarker, this is so the pens dont bleed the image, as both alcohol based, then when pens dry, i covered the pen side of the image in Hi-Tack Glue and added banana paper to it, which looking from the correct side looks like solid white glue, leaving it to dry for atleast 24hours! this then gives you the backing which(I think resembles Brickwork and gravel/cobbles)
I then used the flowersoft to add the flowers to the baskets.
I then made up an easel card and mounted the image using Collal Glue Gel, as you will find the acetate doesnt want to be completely flat after the paper has dried on the back.
