Great Impressions

Glorious Gazebo

Happy Friyay Everyone!

Today’s card is for the Inkspirational challenge which has a theme of ‘watercolour’.

I’ve loved this wood-mounted Art Impressions Gazebo Window for a while and when I saw it was on sale a few weeks ago, I snapped it up! I stamped it with my new go-to ink (Frayed Burlap Archival ) and coloured it with my Twinkling H2O paints.

After I trimmed down the image, I decided I wanted a little something extra, but not too overpowering as I wanted that beautiful image to take centre stage! So I cut the beautiful Poppystamps Massa Leaf Frame and adhered it to my card base before adding the image on top.

Great Impressions Stem Vase


Hello again Everyone!

I’m back again today with a non-Easter card that I made for the Inkspirational challenge. As soon as I saw the photo, I knew I had to play along and although my first thought was to pull out my dies, I remembered this elegant Great Impressions wood-mounted stamp that I felt would be perfect.

I stamped the image using my Frayed Burlap Archival ink and then lightly blended some distress ink around it. I coloured the image with my Twinkling H2O paints and added a Mamaa Elephant sentiment.

Garden Girl

Hello everyone!

Day 10 of the latest Daily Marker 30 Day Colouring challenge and my personal wood stamp challenge.

Today I’m playing along with the latest Case This Sketch challenge.

I seem to spending a LOT of my free time in my garden at the moment – it’s become quite overgrown and so I’m doing a lot of weeding and pruning. A lot of hard work, but very rewarding! So today, I inked up the Great Impressions Garden Squares stamp and coloured it with my beloved Twinkling H2Os. I really must try another medium tomorrow!!

Anyway, I added a sentiment from an older Kelly Purkey clear set and a Penny Black butterfly to complete my take on the challenge.
