Christmas in September part 2 by Zoe

Good morning Lovelies, here is my second post for this month, featuring the projects I made for the recent Hochanda show, wasn't Lesley fab? 

My first card I splattered with wax, once dry I then stamped the fab Ivy leaf using Gesso, I inked over using Distress inks and dried thoroughly, I then stamped again using Versamark Inkpad and heat embossed using a sparkle gold EP, I tore some vellum and stamped and embossed one of the fantastic new Christmas Sentiments using Versamark and the same EP.

I used a chalk spray ink for my background and heat embossed the pretty design using a pink pearlescent embossing powder, torn vellum and a Christmas sentiment in silver EP

Some simple partial blending using Distress inks and some random stamping in the background using the same inks, the design I used pigment inkpads directly to the stamp.

Simple heat embossed in black EP and coloured using water colour markers which I dotted in various colours to create some texture.

I used Archival inkpads to stamp this beautiful corner stamp and creat an ornate tree, the smaller corner and "Believe" are the stand of the tree.

I hope you like my creations, thank you for visiting, I love reading your comments, have a wonderful day, xx Zoe xx
