brick wall

Happy New Year everyone, hoping that you have all had a happy Christmas and received loads of crafty goodies - if by any chance you haven't, the Chocolate Baroque sale ends today, so you still have time to put the lack of goodies right!
I have shown a couple of samples from the last TV shows for you today - the first one uses the steampunk butterfly set with a background technique I learnt from Lesley using crackle medium and brusho powders, as well as Lesley's sticky label method.

The second sample uses one of the new garden stamps, which are only now on the website after being exclusive to the Craft Channel. Both of these are big stamps, and come with a mini stamp as well.
I chose to use the brickwall stamp, stamped in sepia versafine onto kraft card, the the bricks coloured with white and brown pencils. I added white and pale blue pencils to the shutters, and green to the leaves of the bush and the ground.
The mini stamp was used to create the background on the card blank.
More details on my blog if you would like to check it out

Thank you for looking, and don't forget to check everyday for some fab samples from the rest of the team - there are some real goodies coming up!

  5. I love the butterfly and the beautifully coloured cracked background and then the brick wall and the garden stamps is really pretty and the mini stamping on the background finishes it perfectly Veronica. x
