Catching up...

Morning bloggers,

I have just realised that I haven't posted any of my samples from the last TV show, and the next one is only next week, so here are a couple of cards from the show at the beginning of September.
Both use the same image, but the first one is a stamp and the second a stencil

 I cheated a bit here and found a gelli plate background I had in my stash, I picked out one of the colours from the background (purple) and simply embossed the image with purple embossing powder, tore round the edges and mounted onto dark purple card, then white base card
I had a piece of the background left, so used it to make the strip.
Add a few pieces of card candy et voila!

This card is actually quite a bit bigger than the first.
Again, I found a background from my gelli stash and this time I attached the stencil and squished versamark ink through, then removed the stencil and added white embossing powder.
I added a few hills in the background, then mounted on white, dark green and the base card

I always use plenty of talc on the card before embossing to help prevent those unwanted speckles!!

Stamp used is Bird Tree
Stencil used is also Bird tree stencil

One of my new favourite images, although watch out for a beautiful image in the same sort of style - coming up next weekend.....!
Have a wonderful day

  5. Love the colours of the first card Janet. The pacas have settled in but we have had to go to great lengths to stop the 'ginger' cria escaping.
