Cheering Myself Up

Good Evening all

I have had a rubbish few days so I decided to have a couple of hours crafting using Sheens Douglass's new stamps that I got over the weekend. That sounds rather indulgent I know but needs must!!!

I used pan pastels to create a background and then stamped the images in black ink of the leaves and then pink and blue archival inks. I matted this onto some black card.

The flowers I stamped separately and then painted with mica powders mixed with water. I then cut them out to stick on later. I also did the same with the leaves.

For the background I made, I used similar colours of Pan pastels but lightened it. The leaves I coloured with a sakura pen. This was stuck on to a card blank (8x8)

I stamped the sentiment onto white card and rounded the corners

Here is the resulting Card.

I hope you like it!
Have a good evening and happy Crafting!

Not so Snowy Saturday...depending on where you are!

Good afternoon Everyone!
I thought I would share with you all the grid card I made when Barbara set a challenge to make one. I used Distress inks salty Ocean and squeezed lemonade. Where thet overlapped it gave a lovely green colour!!
I was pretty pleased with the result and I will have another go at this type of card...the biggest problem was sorting out the stamps to use!!! It made me realise just how many I had got!!!
Hope you all have a lovely crafty saturday and are staying warm and safe! xx
