Flower Garden

Hello everyone!

I finally had time to sit down and play with my new Hero Arts purchases today!

I love the new Flower Garden Bold Prints background and couldn’t wait to ink it up!

I heat embossed the image and  then coloured it using the palette from this week’s Color Throwdown challenge (grey, purple, lavender and kraft) – and added a die from a my Monthly Hero kit to finish it off. As I used my Twinkling H2Os, this is beautifully sparkly in real life – so difficult to capture in a photo though!

Thanks for stopping by!

Flower wish

Hello everyone!

Even though we’re now in March (and by the way how did THAT happen?), the Daily Marker 30 Day Colouring challenge continues for two more days, and that means my personal wood stamp challenge also continues!

Today I’m playing along with the challenge over at both the Retro Rubber Challenge blog and the Try Stampin’ On Tuesday blog which have a shared sketch challenge.

I used a stamp from a 2006 Hero Arts set (how can that be 13 years ago?), but when I was creating the card, I felt I needed a way of extending the image to the sentiment. So I drew a stem – quite pleased with how it turned out in the end.

I added some paper pennants cut from Basic Grey and a sentiment from My Sentiments Exactly.

Spring Gems

Happy Saturday everyone!

So I was doing really well with my attempt to catch up with the Daily Marker 30 Day Challenge and then life suddenly got a bit busy!

Luckily I was able to spend a lot of time in my craft room today so I can start catching up. AGAIN!

Today, I’m playing along with an amazing colour challenge from the Color Throwdown. Rust, purple, grey and white. Isn’t that a great combo? Actually quite Halloween-like, but including grey rather than black softens the palette I think!

Anyway, I struggled to find a suitable wood-mounted stamps to showcase the palette properly… and then I came across my fabulous Spring Gems stamp from Hero Arts. I stamped the image using Brilliance ink in Pearlescent Rust and then coloured the dots using my Twinkling H2Os. I added a sentiment from Mama Elephant cut from glitter card and finished off the card with a few sequins – you can never have too much sparkle in my view!

Orange Flower

Hello Everyone!

Today I’m playing along with the latest sketch challenge over at CAS Colours & Sketches.

I decided to move away from hearts and instead used a beautiful wood-mounted flower stamp from Magenta as my focal point, which I coloured for my Day 16 Colouring for the Daily Marker 30 Day Challenge. I played around with different ideas (leaves, smaller flowers) for the other two images until I came across my fun Hero Arts Quattros set – I liked the contrast between the images and decided on a stamp from that set instead!

I added some controlled ink smooshing and a sentiment from a Karen Burniston die to finish off my card.

Thanks for stopping by!

Flower Tree

Hello everyone!

I’ve been playing with another older wood-mounted stamp from Hero Arts this morning! This one is called Flower Tree and is from 2009! I remember buying it from one of my local stamp stores! That was when I had 4 stamp stores within a 40 minute drive…. only one remains today, so sad

Anyway I used the colours from this week’s Color Throwdown challenge (red,orange and yellow). I was quite nervous about adding the splatters, but it worked out ok!! The sentiment is from Avery Elle.

Owls galore!

Hello everyone!

Hope you’re having a great weekend! I had one of those days today. You know when little tasks take forever and before you know it the whole day has just disappeared!

I did manage to get into the craft room for Day 9 colouring for the Daily Marker 30 Day challenge and for my take on this week’s fun sketch over at the Freshly Made Sketches challenge. I used some of my MANY MANY owl stamps! All of these are from my wood mounted collection and are by Hero Arts. I finished off my card with a sentiment from Simon Says Stamp.

Thanks for stopping by!
