Heron Reflection on Black Card

Hello there,

How are you all today? Good I hope!

When Inkylicious were Hochanda last month, Emma did a fantastic demo of stamping onto black card, using white ink as a base for the colour.  I loved the card so much that I've had a go at recreating it.  My colours aren't as vibrant as Emma's were but I think that's because my white ink pad ins't as wet as it should be. Here's my offering:

The stamps and stencils that I've used on this card can be found  can be found here.

I'd like to add this card into the following challenges:

Penny Black and More - Feature a Creature
The Artistic Stamper - Stencils and Masks
Rubber Dance - March Challenge (Colour)
Time Out Challenge - Bold

Forest Friends at Stamping Sensations

Hello there,

It's time for our new challenge over at Stamping Sensations.  The theme this month is 'Forest Friends' and what fun I've had making this card:

I love my 'Green Man' stamp from Make Your Mark in York but I don't get much chance to use it really, so this was a great opportunity.  I started by stamping him with Impress Olive Green and then water colouring him before over stamping the image with Distress Walnut stain. Next, I used a Clarity mask to create more interest in the background.  I created the hills before going on to colour the sky.  I stamped the rabbits directly onto the card and the rest of the animals were stamped, coloured and then fussy cut.  I think this gives them a little more dimension and I could place them where I wanted.

The tress and branches are stamps by Inkylicious and the animals came free with a craft magazine that I bought last year.  I really love these animals, especially the deer.

Here is this month's fabulous prize:
Ribbon storage box, ribbons, bow makers and inspiration book

Stamping Sensations is a stamping challenge, so we must see a stamped image, sentiment or quote as the focal element of your artwork, this means: Stamping must be the central point of attention and interest.

All the details of our challenge rules can be found here

Please note:  If we don't comment on your entry it will be because it doesn't follow our theme to qualify under our rules, or because we are asked to sign in or provide additional data to comment on third part hosts such as Instagram, Flickr or Facebook etc.  We really don't want to be rude but we do want to be fair to those who follow the rules.

That's all from me for now, so I'll wish you a happy and peaceful day x

Rudolf Day February 18

Hello there on this very cold and snowy day.

I'm here a little later than usual with my 'Rudolf Day' post as I completely forgot about it but better late than never as they say!

The card I'd like to share with you today is made using a Penny Black stamp that I received for my birthday recently.  I'm a great fan of tree stamps and I just couldn't resist this one:

The background was made using Distress inks and Glycerine.  This is a new technique for me so I though I'd give it a try and I'm happy with the result.  I've added glitter to the snowy parts although it doesn't show too well in this photo. The Deer are by Memory Box. 

I have a busy day today but I'll try to catch up with my commenting as soon as I can.  Until then, stay warm and happy x

It's All About The Light Bulb

Hello there on this Sunday morning,

I do hope that your weekend is going well and that you might find some time today to do something that makes you happy x

I'm here with a few more of my Inkylicious samples and I do hope that you're enjoying them.  The ones that I'm sharing with you today are made using the new 'Create A Light Bulb' stamps and the elements that can be used within it.  Here goes:

I've seen quite a few light bulb stamps around but I really like these are they are left empty so that you can choose to use other of your favourite stamps within them.  They also come with the elements and various inspirational words if you just want to keep them a little more traditional.  The first two cards are made using Brusho and stamps from the 'Create A Light Bulb Element' set.  The last card just had to be done as I just love the Winter Cabin stamp.  The background on this card was made using the 'Splatter Circle XL' stamp.  I've used Oxide Inks which I think give such vibrant colours and are just perfect for the Northern Lights.

As you can see, I thoroughly enjoyed playing with these wonderful new stamps and the possibilities with them are endless.  I'll be back mid-week to share the last remaining few samples, until then, take care and be happy x

I would like top enter my first card into the following challenges:
The Artistic Stamper - Use the colour RED

I would like to enter my third card into the following challenges:
Allsorts - I spy something beginning with 'B'. 
My 'B' is for the Bulb and for  the colour Blue in the background

Inkylicious on Hochanda

Hello there, and I hope that you're all enjoying a happy and peaceful Sunday.

I would like to say a big thank you for all of your good wishes regarding my cold, you are all so very kind and I'm pleased to say that it's slowly improving.

I just wanted to let you know that Inkylicious will be on Hochanda today from 2 - 4pm.  It's been quite a long while since they've been on telly and I was thrilled when Deby asked if I could help out in making a few samples for their show.

I'd like to share with you one of my personal favourites today and I'll be back at some point soon to share more of my cards with you but just for now, here's a little peak at some of the lovely stamps that will be on today's show.

Enjoy the rest of you day and I'll be back soon x
