Wedding Season!

This is a lovely stamp from LOTV, which I have stamped 3 times so that I could layer the dress and then the flowers.  I used a die to make a frame around the image and then layered onto spotty paper, rounded the corners and adhered to a plain white card.

Another one for Christmas

Yeah!! So pleased to see Cuttlebugmania is back with their challenges.
I have used a Christmas folder, and a pretty blue Basil card (it shows up on here as purple though!). I have sanded it back a little to show the design, and coloured in the two doves, and also used "Wink of Stella" clear on them. I edged the piece lightly with silver ink and then layered onto white card after wrapping with silver thread.

This week's card is made with a beautiful image from Chocolate Baroque. Their challenge was to use the colours tan, brown, blue, and white.
I stamped the image on a snippet of white and tore around it and edged with walnut stain DI. The blue background was painted with Fresco paints and the word stamped and embossed with detail white ep. The flowers were coloured with copics and promarkers

How does your garden grow?

With pretty hydrangeas like this one?

I stamped the image (Rubber Stampede) directly onto my card with memento ink and coloured with copics. I thought it looked a little flat, so stamped again on some scraps and layered them on, shaping them to be a little more realistic. I added some 'wink of stella' to the flowers, and dabbed the centres with gold 'Smooch' Finished by rubbing a little blue chalk around the edges.

First of all - welcome to my newest follower Kevmac, thanks for joining

This weeks card features a lovely stamp from Crafty Individuals, sorry I don't have a number for it. I have paper pieced the dress in a printed paper, and the hat and brolly in a plain colour. The paper has the edges sponged with Dried Marigold DI. The background is another CI stamp done in 2 different colours, randomly torn and placed behind. The lovely paper flowers have been in my stash for a number of years, and they do match better IRL. Sometimes scanners manage to change colours!!

Just sneaking this one in at the last minute at
Sweet Stamps.
Their challenge this month is parchment or vellum. I stamped my flower 3 times on some vellum scraps and embossed in white. I cut out the layers to make this pretty flower, and added it to my background of brayered Fresco paints, and a piece of sheer ribbon which is coloured and heated for that lovely 'crumply' look
I will also pop into Pixie's Playground with this as I used up some scraps of vellum

A little bit shabby chic!

I couldn't wait to try out my new stamp set that I won from Paper Artsy.
I stamped it onto a slightly linen finished card, and then stamped again onto kraft. I cut out the 3 elements, sponged all the edges, and adhered with mounting tape. Finished off with some toning baker's twine.
