Diane Duda Blog Hop

Well it's Friday 19th June, so that means that it's time for the Blog Hop! Everyone has hopefully been beavering away producing pieces of artwork with these yummy rubber stamps. I've loved mine, and I'm sure the others are just as inspiring.



My first card has been made using a muted colour palette of pinks and greens. I've distressed my papers with Tattered Rose and Pine Needles Distress Inks. I've hand stitched my papers together, pricking them first to make it easier. I made my own template for the large heart to echo the heart on the little cat, and copied the stitching pattern to stitch the large heart down. I've coloured my image with Graphitint pencils, Distress Inks and H2O's. I've made a Lollipop flower using the tutorial on the Next Level, sprayed with Pearl Glimmer Mist, and used a computer generated word which I have inked around with Tattered Rose Distress Ink.




My second card has been made with a black, red and cream colour scheme. I have paper pieced the dress on my image, and then used Distress Inks and H2O's to colour the rest. I have used Fired Brick and Black Soot Distress Inks to edge my papers and the red heart this time. I have used cream and red fabric flowers from my stash mounted up with black brads to complete the card.




I have really enjoyed this challenge, and wish that I had had time to make many more cards, as I had ideas for lots more. The stamp is gorgeous, and I can't wait to see the rest of the collection. I am really looking forward to blog hopping later on today, Judith x
