Beautiful Rose

I loved the recent freebie with Simply Cards and Papercraft Magazine

It was this lovely embossing folder and stamp set. I embossed the design and then used Worn Lipstick Distress Ink over the raised areas. The rose was stamped with archival ink and then watercoloured with Distress Ink and a waterbrush. I also used Crafters Companion Clear Sparkle Pen to add some bling. Its such a striking stamp you need little else to make it stand out.

Embossing in Gold

I hope you enjoyed your Easter break. I managed to sneak in some crafting during the school holidays!

This is one of my all time favourite stamps from Crafty Individuals.  This time I decided to make it a little more modern by using this colour combinatio - Barn Door and Broken China

I stamped the images and decoupaged some of them for added depth. I then added WOW! Pale Gold Embossing Powder to some areas. The card background was made by spritzing ink in corresponding colours onto the card.

Spring Flowers

On our dog walk we found these beautiful daffodils growing wild.

So these were perfect inspiration for this card I made for the Craft Stamper Blog Challenge (Spring Flowers)

I created it using a PaperArtsy stamp set, masks and distress inks. First I stamped the the flowers and then masked them before using another mask to apply Distress Ink through. I wanted to keep it quite simple. You probably can't see but the flowers glitter after having Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pens added to them.
