Hello everyone, I hope that you are all keeping well. Today is my Wedding Anniversary, and I should have been in sunny Mexico, but as with so many things this year, it was not meant to be. Like so many of us, I know that family, friends and the simple things in life are far more important than holidays and lots of possessions. Enjoyment of Nature, the changing seasons, and the promise of Spring and lighter nights always seems to spur us on.
I have made some projects using the
beautiful stamps showcased on last month's TV shows on Hochanda which I
am sharing with you today. The first card uses the lovely Be at Peace
stamp drawn by Dawn. I have given the card an Autumnal feel by
colouring the leaves in different colours, so quick and simple to do. I
added the sentiment in a circle around the tree, and distressed the edge
of the background before matting onto kraft card.
My next two projects were created using the Life is Wonderful stamp set. I created a gelli plate background using green ink and a texture tool, and then stamped the little dragonfly over the top. I coloured the image with pencils.
final card was created by stamping and embossing onto black card with
white embossing powder. I painted the image with Koh-I-Noor paints, and
added some splatters with white paint. I used one of Lesley's zingy Designer Papers A5- Background Splash to matt the design onto. Definitely much bolder than my previous design!
Thanks so much for stopping by, as always, stay safe, and take care. xx
