New stamps ...

Hello my lovely friends and visitors, I hope your week is going well. After creating some cards with lots of details and lots of layers of ink and paint I was in the mood to create something a little lighter and here is the end result …

A 150mm square card
It has depth but is good to post
All the details
I managed to capture some of the shimmer

Love to Scrap Challenge LTSCB #105 Anything Goes
Scrapy Land Challenge #82 Anything Goes 
I used Crafters Companion dies 
Tuesday Throwdown Challenge #TT376 Anything Goes

I stamped and heat embossed the flower and leaf directly onto the card blank and then onto snippets of white watercolour card. I coloured the rose and leaf and once the stamped snippets were dry I fussy cut each one and put them to one side. I then decided that I wanted some extra details added to the card to help all the elements tie together so I used a different set of stamps, which has some small silhouette stamps, and I stamped the little hearts and butterfly directly onto the card. I die cut both the hearts and sentiment from snippets of coloured by me card that were left over from other projects.

As the watercoloured elements were dry at this point I added them to my card using Collall 3D glue gel and then I adhered the die cuts. I am seriously in the mood for creating watercolour cards and the experimenting with different stamp sets continues though lol! I was awfully lucky just before Christmas because I won the Simon Says Stamp Challenge voucher and I knew before I got email what stamp set I would be purchasing next – it was the More Spring Flowers and Winter Flowers and I’ve used the spring flowers today. Thank you so much for taking the time to visit and comment. I really do appreciate it and I hope you get some time to do what you love to do soon ttfn Karen x
