Mini Makes

Good Afternoon all


After being used to making larger cards for Sheena Douglass DT team, I decided to make some mini 4" cards.  There is a fabulous blog hosted by Jules http://jules-alwayswithaheart.blogspot.co.uk/.  She has template layouts that she is happy for people to use and seeing as I found 100 x 4" card blanks and envelopes I thought I would work my way through them.


These are the first few I have done using Sara Davies just for men paper pads and stamps, as well as paper from my stash and scraps (and there are 100's of them!).  I used Sheena Douglas stamps and a couple of others from my stash and magazine stamps.  I had great fun making these and there are many more to come!



Thank you for visiting, hope to see you again soon xx

Donna Ratcliffe's fabulous new stamps

Good Afternoon all

Donna's new stamps are brilliant and it would have been rude not to have a play.  All the backgrounds are from my inky stash

 
A brusho background, stamped in versafine and coloured with distress oxide inks

Oxide inks on the background, stamped with versafine and embossed and gel pens to add colour to the butterflies

The background is a stamp from Sheena's "something in the air" stamps and embossed in white, all stamped and coloured with oxide inks.

I painted some gesso on my craft mat and pressed the card into it and pulled it up which gave it texture and dropped brusho's on and sprayed wit a little water so it ran into the texture and then stamped with versafine and embossed. The butterflies are also stamped and embossed and the sentiment was stamped in copper on black card. 
 
Thank you for visiting and see you next time xx
