Special Friend Card with Claire


Hello and Happy Monday to all my special crafty friends! I’ve got so much to tell you!

New launch reveals, giveaways, craft show events for your diary and a Live TV show on Create & Craft. All coming up this week - Eeeek! So excited I could burst into flame!

I’m loving how busy things are at Thirsty Brush right now. It really is turning into a mammoth year for the brand, and I couldn’t be happier. So, before I delve into this weeks technique, here is the TB news (cue fancy news bulletin music):

Now you are all up to date, onto this weeks blog project….

Something a little different from me this week. I don’t normally do a blog post for a new release until after live shows, but I’m so excited about the upcoming designs that I have decided to give you all a little teaser treat! 

I’m a huge Instagram fan. I can spend hours looking at all the fantastic papercrafts and techniques from fellow card makers. Having come across this beautiful dotty colouring technique, I knew it would be just perfect for the new designs. Firstly, a big crafty thank you to fabulous US crafters @mommacooksalot and @alexsyberia for sharing this amazing technique and allowing me to pass it on to you guys.

Now, it isn’t the quickest of colouring methods out there and it does take a bit of practice (well, a lot of practice if you want to get as good as the beautiful makes from the ladies above!), but I promise you it is totally worth it. I had so much fun losing myself in the process. This card took about 2:26 minutes. Precise huh?!! I know this because, its exactly how long my duvet took to boil wash in my machine, after the cat decided to go pee pee on it. Hashtag Angry Face. I swear, my animals will have me bankrupt soon! It’s a good job I love them. 

Supplies for this technique:


How to create:

I just love this look and will definitely be using it to make more cards with all of the Thirsty Brush designs so far. Feel free to bookmark this page so you can try this out when you receive you new stamps from Fridays launch or why not try it with your existing TB stamps!
