Kingfisher Meadow (posted by Claire)

Good morning all, Claire here with a couple of projects made using this months lovely new stamps.

For this card I began with a background made with mica pigment powders on watercolour card, it's really shimmery in real life but sadly it doesn't show too well in the pic. I overstamped the background with lots of lovely foliage stamps ( you can find all the new stamps here). I stamped the kingfisher on white card and painted him with the same mica pigments, he looked a little flat so I had a rummage in my craft room and found some very old Sakura stardust pens which my some miracle still worked so I used them to give him lots more detail. I cut him out and layered him up on 3d foam pads.  A stamped sentiment in a little punched envelope were added to finish the card.

My second project today is a tag and a pendant made with the leftover ink from making this card. I had a tiny bit of colour left on my craft mat so I misted it with water and mopped it up with some white card. I cut out the tag and stamped with some delicate foliage and edged with silver embossing. I stamped the rest of the card with foliage and used glossy accents to glue a cabochon in place, once that was dry I cut it out and popped it in a bezel and added some green velvet ribbon to make a pendant.

Thanks for taking the time to visit, I hope you're enjoying the new stamps and don't forget to share your projects with us on facebook.
