Design Team Intro | Angelique de Groot

We are really excited to introduce NEW Design Team member…

Angelique de Groot

I’m Angelique, 59 years of age. I’m Dutch, but live in the beautiful Belgian Ardennes (The French speaking part of the country). However, in Spring, me and my man move to the Netherlands, where we manage a small campsite throughout the Summer. Ever since I could hold a pencil I’ve been drawing, colouring and crafting, it keeps me busy in quiet times, happy in sad times and sane in mad times. I’m mainly a card maker and use all kinds of mediums to create. From colouring stamps with markers, pencils and watercolours, to more mixed media style techniques, with inks, stencils, gell plate and more. I have just started exploring the world of journaling.

Angelique is on our INSTA TEAM!

Angelique’s beautiful cards, wonderful use of inks in her backgrounds, and gorgeous colouring really stood out to us ♡

Angelique stamped the gorgeous heart with Versafine Clair ink onto 300 grs watercolour paper, then used red + orange Brushos with water to create colour bursts. When dry, Angelique brushed red and yellow Harmony inks through our INK SWIRLS stencil creating a wonderful effect in the background. Polychromos pencils were used to colour some of the details in the heart stamp, and a white gel pen was used for highlighting. To add some texture and shimmer Angelique added Glossy accents to some circles, and clear sparkle splashes all over it. The edges were distressed with black ink before matting and layering with black card onto a white 15x15cm white card base.
