Hello to anyone visiting.
I have been playing with a beautiful new stamp that I have just purchased from Chocolate Baroque, called Summer Fair.
It is one of a series of four, depicting the four seasons.
I particularly liked the summer one as I have a poppy seed head stamp which matches perfectly and can be used as a background or border . (September-Poppyseed).
I decided I would do another card using the challenge colours , which I think are gorgeous.
In the first sample I have stamped and embossed onto parchment paper. Haven't used parchment for ages and had forgotten how delicate it looks when coloured. The background is done with Distress inks and then over stamped with the poppy seed heads, in the same colours.
The second card has a background the same as the first and the lady is stamped and embossed onto white card and coloured with the same colours of Distress inks.
I'm sure I will be using this stamp a lot as I really like the design.
Hope you have enjoyed your visit and happy crafting.
If you are at the Doncaster Craft show at the weekend, please come and say hello. I shall be demonstrating on the ArtCuts stand. May see you there.
Bye for now
