Roses and Reindeer's (by Brenda)


Hello all, I'm here again to share a few more of my samples from last months Hochanda shows where Lesley inspired us all with more beautiful stamps.

For my first share I gave a piece of watercolour card a watery covering of DI then stamped Crackling Rose with Versafine black and coloured in with sparkle pens. The sentiment is from Loving Sentiments which I cut into several pieces to arrange around the bloom. The edges have been lightly inked, matted onto coordinating cardstock and a organza bow added down the side.


Reindeer Landscape is such a lovely stamp and I decided to keep it fairly simple. I stamped the main image and added some watercolour to the sky using a mask to block out the moon plus a little shading to the hills, then stamped part of the image twice onto a larger piece of card so that I could raise the focal coloured one in the centre to carry the scene either side. I also stamped one of the Deer again, cut it out and decoupaged offsetting it to the left.


My last share is a bit more inky indulgence using die cuts to create the base card which I then inked with Oxide inks and stamped with Harlequin Bouquet and Floribunda Net, coloured in with the same inks and the sentiment from Loving Sentiments stamped with Versafine black. I also added some leaves using leaves using the Useful Leaves stencil. Finally the three pieces were then tied together with seam binding threaded through eyelets.

Happy day all.

  5. Great inspiration Brenda and love your yellow Crackle Rose, so fresh and pretty, then the great design for the Christmas card and love the extended background and the dimension you have given it by adding the deer. Finally the three prettily shaped sections stamped with two of the rose stamps and a great idea to use the middle section for the sentiment, and some lovely stencilling in the background. x
