A few more cards ... (posted by Claire)

Good morning, Claire here with some of the projects made for Lesley's shows on Hochanda.

This first card was made using stamps from Nature's Peace. I began with a PanPastel background and stamped the tree using brown ink, the foliage in the top corner with green ink and then stamped the foliage in the foreground with a dark green ink, over stamping with the berried inked in red ink. The sentiment was stamped and embossed with a vintage gold ink.

This card features Butterfly Poppy Collage, I love this large image it's so pretty.

I made the background by swooshing some white card through Picked Raspberry and Peeled Paint distress inks misted with water on my craft mat. Once the ink was dry I used a harlequin stencil and glossy black stencil paste over the top. While that was drying I stamped the image and embossed with black embossing powder. I painted the image with watercolour painted and splattered a little paint here and there. I distressed the edges and layered it on black card. Lastly I assembled the card adding some pink organza ribbon and a big bow.

My last card today  uses the seed heads collage from Butterfly Poppy Collage. I stamped the image to the side of a linen card blank and then doodles the wiggly edges with a black micron pen. I painted the image with watercolour paints and added some paint splatters here and there before adding the sentiment which is from Pretty Poppies.

Thanks so much for visiting today

  2. Three gorgeous cards Claire and all in such pretty colours. I love the first card with that pretty scene and then the next two with the Butterfly Collage stamps and the vivid textural background on one and then the more CAS treatment on the other. x

  3. Oh Claire these are lovely and nice to see a variety. I can't make up my mind which I like the most.
