Thank You Sunflowers


Hello, today I have a card to share with you that uses Hobby Arts June Monthly Special Sunshine & Sunflowers.

I stamped the sunflowers onto watercolour card using 'Rich Cocoa' Memento Ink. I then used Arteza watercolour pencils and a water brush to colour the image.

Then used the Mixed Media Christmas corner dies from Sizzix to cut out portions of the background. I then added some Stampendous Aged Gold Embossing enamel to the centres of the flowers and randomly over the background.

The sentiment was embossed with Ranger 'Queen's Gold' embossing powder and attached with 3D foam. I also raised the sunflower panel with some 3D Foam and added a panel of blue backing paper.

I finished the card by adding some pearls to each corner and mounting onto a 5 x 7 " Kraft card base.
I hope you like my card and thanks for stopping by.

Little Winter Owl


Hello, today I have a card to share with you that uses this months new release stamp sets from Hobby Art, which were featured on Hochanda on Tuesday.

The owl is from the Little Owl stamp set and was stamped onto white card using 'Tuxedo Black' Memento Ink, which I also used to stamp the Ivy from the Christmas Foliage set. I then used Arteza Expert coloured pencils to colour them before cutting out.  The owl was stamped and coloured three times and decoupaged with glossy accents added to the eyes and beak.

The snowflakes are from the Winter's Snowflakes stamp set also by Hobby Art and have been stamped onto acetate and embossed with Winter Wonderland embossing powder by Stampendous.

The Kraft card was embossed with a wood effect embossing folder and green Stickles was added in places to create a moss effect and chunky white embossing powder from WOW was also used. I added a layer of green card stock between the Kraft card and the Kraft card base and die cut a circle in the middle. I then used Black Soot Distress Oxide to ink the centre of the base card before sticking all the elements into place.

I finished the card by adding some White Woodware Fluffy Stuff and some clear crystal gems to finish.

I hope you like this card and thanks for stopping by.
