Triple Bauble card

Here is a quick card made using the smaller pink ink stamps out of their bauble set.

I just wanted to show how mistakes can always be fixed. This was meant to be a one layer water coloured card, but my impatience to wait for things to dry properly meant I smudged the red on the middle bauble.

I then tried to cover it with white paint and made it worse!

I then stamped the middle bauble again, this time used embossing powder to make the lines shiny and wink of Stella pens to colour it so it was sparkly, this made it more of a feature than the other two baubles.

I then mounted it on black card and placed foam pads on the back.

I put it over the smudged middle section.

I then mounted the whole thing and placed it on a folded card. I actually really like how it turned out and will probably do this design again.

Colouring wise: For the left and right baubles I used Derwent watercolours – inktense pallette 1 & 2 and for the middle bauble, wink of stella pens – orange, red and yellow

so don’t dismay when you make a booboo, just think of a different way to use what you have,



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
