One of my favourite stamps

I love  using this Paperartsy stamp from way back, this time I made a background using Izinks Inks and then stamped in dark blue Versafine and embossed with clear powder. A Matt and a few words to make a stunning card.

Thanks for dropping by!!!

A few cards using the new Media plates

Today I am posting cards I have made using John Lockwood's media plates and the Stamp to Impress board, I am really impresssd with this board. I used Distressed Oxides for the backgrounds and Versafine for the images.

So I am now working on more samples which I will post later

Card with a difference

This card I started a few weeks ago when away from home and just had stencils and pens with me. So I started by adding an outline through my stencil then coloured with Distressed Oxides, next stamped over the whole thing with a little flower stamp and some extra ones in blue. Next step to cut out but decided the flower was actually too big so a cut into pieces and reassembled to fit my card, so nothing lost!!! Eventually it all went together well, so never give and don't throw anything in the bin you never know what you can do with a disaster!!!!

Distressed Oxides

So I was very lucky to be able to get my hands on three of the new colours of Distress Oxides, I choose Picked Rasberry, Antique Linen and Peacock Feathers. So here are three cards I created using these colours and a few from the first release. I love making backgrounds and then colouring in stamped images, cutting out and transforming into a card.

Zentangle Cards

When I am away from home I try to take a little craft stuff with me so usually it's colouring pencils and stamped images but last week I took card, stencils and pens. I zentangled through the stencils then added the colour and made up cards when I got back home. Here are the finished results.
