Natural Colours by Penny

Goodly Morning lovely peeps, and a very warm welcome to you all.  Today it is my pleasure to share a couple of projects with you featuring the beautiful stamps from last month's tv shows.  So grab a cuppa and spend a few minutes getting crafty with me.  

Nature's Colours.

For this card I have used stamps from the Lords and Ladies, Artistic Affirmations, Square Bubbles and The Rose Tree sets: Distress Inks, crayons, white embossing powder, Kraft card.

On a piece of Cartridge paper I scribbled three colours of crayons randomly all over it, then blended them with water using my finger.

When dry I stamped and embossed the  Square Bubbles in white all over the background panel.  I then used a white marker pen around the panel edges and matted it onto Kraft card.

On another piece of Kraft card I stamped and embossed the bunch of grasses image in white, then painted it with Distress Inks. I did the same with a sentiment and a bee then cut them out as panels and edged them with white pen as before.  I cut the bee out separately.

I took a cream base card and stamped the focal image along both sides before attaching the background panel.  I then attached the panels and the bee to complete this cheerful card.

Feather Bookmark.

This is a lovely quick and easy project.  I have used a stamp from the I Shall Be Your Wings set; colouring pencils, colouring Kraft card, coloured card, ribbons and pearls from my stash.  

I used an offcut of colouring Kraft card for this little project, and stamped one of  the feathers with Versamark ink and embossed it with white powder.  I then stamped and embossed the sentiment underneath it.  I coloured the images with pencils, adding a shadow line around them, then  I added white marker pen to the edges.

I took a piece of coloured card and cut it slightly wider and about 10cm longer.  I then cut a fringe  at one end.

I attached the focal panel to the coloured card base.  I then added some ribbon and ric - rac in         co-ordinating colours, and some tiny pearls.  Not only is this a quick and pretty project to create, you can use up some of your spare card off cuts too!

Thank you all for dropping in today, see you again soon,
