Only use Tangled Fragments to make your ART by Maria

Hey everyone,

I hope everyone is fine and can enjoy the nice weather for the moment ( I hope it doesn't rain in the UK?). But of course when it rains we still have our exciting hobby!
Today I made some samples with the new Tangled Fragments stamps, they are real fun to use! As you see you don't need any other stamps to have a nice result.

As you all can see I have played with my pan pastels, I've used Orange, Burnt Sienna, Bright Yellow Green and Rich Gold.

For the first card I took some white paper, some versamark to stamp with, and then put on the colours with a pan pastel tool. For the flowers, I've used the leaf fragment stamp, cut all the leaves out and played with them till I had the right flowers, aren't they lovely? The butterflies were cut out first and then I used the patterns to stamp on their bodies, great isn't it?

On the second card I used the leaf fragment again, cut the leaves out, and made a kind of frame on my card with them. The butterflies are made like my previous sample. I used some cut leaves to add more details. For the background of the second card, I used my acrylic block, put some versamark on it and stamped with it onto some white paper. I started with my block at the 4 corners, then I used my orange and afterwards my gold pan pastels and coloured the whole paper in the background colours!

I really enjoyed playing with these new fragment stamps I hope you like what I did and try it out!

Have a wonderful stamping time and enjoy summer!

  6. I can see you are really enjoying using both your PanPastels & the CB Fragments stamps. The colours you have used in both of these is a real joy & I love the flowers made with those 'Inapod' tangle segments. The way you have lined up the fragment patterns with the wings/bodies of the butterflies is so effective. I particularly like your frame in the second one. Your gems on the orange 'pods' are a real joy. You certainly brightened my morning break today.
