Essence of Nature by Zoe

Good morning Lovelies, I hope you’re all well.
 Today I’m sharing with you my samples from last months Hochanda show featuring these beautiful Nature inspired stamps.

My first card I used a coloured parchment and simply heat embossed in white and layered onto white linen textured card, I created a wrap for the sentiment using the rest of the parchment.

I used watercolour card for my second card which I used sparkle brush pens and washed them across with water, heat embossed in gold the stunning leaf, plain vellum for a wrap this time which was torn and heat embossed, I embossed, coloured and fussy cut the cute little ladybird.

I used watercolour card again, and making a mask using masking tissue I heat embossed in gold and coloured using Distress inks and lots of water, some glitter in the flower centres to finish.

I used a smooth card this time and using acetate I added sparkle pen, spritzed with water and laid it onto the card, I dried and then used a second colour and then a third, I love the white space, I heat embossed the tree in black both on my background and onto a plain card, I coloured the butterflies and fussy cut to decoupage them.

I hope you like my creations, I loved created them with these gorgeous stamps, I shall be back later in the month, so bye for now. Have a wonderful day xx Zoe xx
