Ephemera and Flowers

I am sharing my projects from the Hochanda October show with you. This show featured the wonderful Baroque Ephemera stamp sets 1 and 2

With my first card I used a slotted die in which I could keep all my "memories".  I used the tickets, train sticker and receipts stamps. I aged them with Distress Inks.

For my second piece , I stamped the postcard and receipts. Again I aged them with Distress Inks and tied with some lace and added a die cut flower. I added the "Love Post" stamp from the Mail Art stamp set.

For this wall hanging I think I stamped everything! 
I started with an A5 size piece of greyboard and covered with gesso. I then stamped a background with one of the large stamps from Dusky Damask and the crackle stamp from Echoes from Italy .  I then ripped the stamped images of the receipts and edged with Distress Ink, added some tickets and a tag. I stamped the Butterfly from Happy Flower's Day  Added some splashes and drips of ink to finish.

My last two cards are from Floral Grunge and Movie Strip Collage.
Both cards were made by spritzing Distress Inks on a craft mat and then stamping with Archival. I then colourd the images with the same colours I had used for the backgrounds.

Thanks so much for looking
