Loves to create: mainly cards, but I love to create some other craft projects like boxes, bags… Also I love to do mini albums, just to keep some precious memories and to offer.
Favourite Darkroom Door product: Stamps, of course ;o) Especially the flower sets. I’ve always loved to use flowers on my projects and these sets are really great; Very inspiring! You can create different styles, vary from techniques to techniques, or inks to inks you use.
Have you ever been in a darkroom? Well, I don’t remember that but my father loves photography and when I was a little girl, he had a darkroom (it was in our bathroom… *lol*) but he stopped quickly, I was very young so I can’t remember of this period.
Let’s say you’re invited to come into our darkroom for a day. What would you bring with you? First, I would like to bring some memories of our meet! ☺
Then, to see the how do ! I think it must be fantastic to discover the images appear on the paper. And if need be… a lot of darkroom door supplies ☺ ☺
Are you afraid of the dark? Well, I’m not a fearful person, but I think I like the dark only at home, in my bed *lol* The dark is mysterious; Love the silence of the dark, it’s relaxing. You can imagine, think about projects…
Sylvie has created a wonderful assortment of cards with various techniques that we will share with you over the next few days. Here's the first set:
Cards with Masking Technique:
Darkroom Door stamps : Wildflower, Full bloom Vol 2
Darkroom Door filmstrips : Blank
Darkroom Door wordstrips : Full bloom
Additional materials :
ribbon (Stampin’Up !) ; Inks (VersaMagic) ; Square punch (Marvy Uchida).
Love the blank Filmstrips because you can create your own scene.
I used the masking technique to fill each filmstrip with my own colours and the stamps.
If you want to colour the inside (card #1), scrub your ink pad directly on the surface.
Also you can use a sponge with distress inks, the result is great too.
You can use several stamps on the same filmstrip as shown on the card #2 or only one large stamp on several filmstrips (card #3).
The possibilities are endless!

We're so pleased to have Sylvie as our guest artist this week! Sylvie and I have been online stamping buddies for a few years now, and I am so pleased for her that she is now the author of 2 stamping books! (She has featured my Stamp-It stamp designs in both of them too - thanks Sylvie!!) For more information on the books, please visit Sylvie's blog.
Don't forget to stop by tomorrow to see more of Sylvie's creations!
