Bright and Beautiful (by Zoe)

Good morning Lovelies, I'm going to use this post to wish you all A Very Merry Christmas, I hope it's a healthy one.

So back to my post, here are some more of my samples created for the Hochanda shows last month.

I used the beautiful backing papers for my first card, I did very little really, just stamped in blue ink and heat embossed the lavender looking plant (sorry I'm not great with flowers) and the butterfly.

I heat embossed onto another backing paper and coloured my flower using pencils, simple matting and layering, and Voila!

My canvas was coloured using spray inks, I stamped the main image onto rice paper and adhered using a mat gel medium. Once dry I stamped around the edges to create some texture, highlighted with white gel pen and added some texture paste through a stencil. I finished off with gilding wax around the edges.

Whiteboard heart from the website which was coloured in layers using Oxides. I coloured the stunning flower with Distress Inks and a waterbrush.

Simple stamping onto linen texture cardstock and coloured using watercolour crayons.

A trio of greyboard tags which I brayered with chalk paints and simple stamping.

I do hope you like my creations, I loved making them.
Have a wonderful Christmas xx Zoe xx
