Nocturne Versafine Clair
Distress Oxides
Finger daubers
Craft mat
Water spritzer
Mixed media card
Heat tool
Brown heat resistant craft mat

I created a background on mixed media card using distress oxides, Iced Spruce, Cracked Pistachio and Seedless Preserves.
Applying the colours first on a craft mat, spritzing with water and smooshing the card on top. Drying with a heat tool between colours to build up the layers.
Using a sponge finger dauber I then applied Seedless Preserves and Cracked Pistachio, randomly over the dried background.This gave intense areas of colour ready to stamp the water droplets and circle swirls with Nocturne Versafine Clair.
A white card panel with the large flower bloom, stamped, coloured and fussy cut and the Grow sentiment finished the card ready for mounting onto a card blank.

Hello All,

I posted yesterday on Facebook and since then I have been messaged by a few people asking what i would pick 3D printer wise. So i thought i would share this here and there incase anyone is interested.

These are my opinions only and i would 100% recommend anyone do their own research before purchasing a 3D printer. There are lots of other brands out there, Anycubic and Creality were two other brands i looked at, but for me Elegoo always seem to be slightly ahead or the same specs for less money and they have a great reputation in the industry.

If i couldn’t have got the Saturn, I would have gone for the Mars 2 pro, however the mars 2 is just as good if you want to save some pennies, the main differences between these two, are the pro has a very marginly bigger build area, has air filtration, has aluminum vat and knobs rather than plastic and a few more bits. None affect the quality of the models that come off though as both have the same light source/screen.

I would not go for the Mars (not linked) as the improvements between that and the 2 were quite a jump, including the much better mono screen and its all about the screen with these machines ? (well kinda lol)

I have linked the two mentioned below on Amazon as this is the best price i found, especially as a prime member and today being the last day of prime deals you get a chunk off, in fact with your savings you can get a bottle of resin for the printer and still have change from the normal price
Hope this helps (remember the prime member prices are only whilst prime day is on!)

Mars 2 £200 – £152 if prime member

Mars 2 pro £280 – £224 if prime member

This is the resin i have purchased to start me £34 for 1000ml – £27.20 if prime member
