At Last! 4 cards to catch up.

Good morning all,

I hope you are having a lovely weekend.  Sorry it has been a while since I last blogged, but I haven't been feeling brilliant.  I have had a viral infection which has drained me of energy (not that I have much energy at the best of times!)  Anyway, I am mostly better now although I do still have a bit of a cough left.

Four cards to show you today, to catch up a bit:

This one uses the Lily of the Valley stamp set and distress oxides inks.
Stamp the Lily of the Valley in place with a permanent ink
Squish the ink pads on a piece of acetate, spritz with water and add to the card, around the image.
Water colour the image using oxides inks picked up from a mat with a damp paintbrush
Stamp the verse
add some gems
Squiggle a fine line round the edge of the card.

A nice simple card, just stamp the Freesia and verse in place and colour in
Place a heart stencil over the verse and apply a gold colour ink through the aperture
Add a few strips of designer paper for interest

The stamps used are from the Freesia and Mother verse set

For the third card I've used:
Mandalas petite stencils set 1
Mandalas and Mask stamp set
Journalling set
Gel Press Petites set 1

Start by adding ink to the square gel press petite plate, add some texture with scrunched up copy paper and print onto some stencil card,
Repeat until you like your background
Tear round the square
Ink up the stencil with plenty of black ink
Place face down on the prepared square and run through a die cutting machine to transfer the ink
Stamp the mandala on a separate piece of card, colour with pencils, cut out and attach to the centre of the stencil image
On another piece of stencil card, mke the background by stamping various images from the journalling set and sponging and splattering some ink.
Mat onto black card and attach together
Finish with dots of black paint

Last card for today! Using the same stamp sets as the previous card and the Mini word chains 11&12
On two pieces of stencil card, use distress oxides to create the backgrounds,
Cut one piece down and stamp images from the journalling set
On a separate piece of card, stamp three mandalas, colour and cut out to create flower heads
Attach these to the main card, then draw some stems with a fine black pen
Add the words and some paint dots
Add sequins in the centres of the flowers.

Thank you for visiting and I hope to see you again soon!
