Rosy Embrace and Fancy Flora by Penny

Hello and good morning peeps, I hope you are all well and warm.  Can you believe we're in December already?!  I hope you're all a lot more ready than I am lol!  Anyway I have a couple of my samples from the CB tv shows last month to share with you today.

Rosy Embrace.

I have used stamps from the Freedom Flower, Small Graph Paper and Words to Dazzle and Sparkle sets, black Versafine ink, Distress inks, clear EP, Masking Tissue, pink glimmer spray. 

On a piece of white card I stamped the flower in black Versafine ink and embossed it with clear EP.  I masked the image with Masking Tissue and sprayed the card with a pink Glimmer Spray and let it dry.  I stamped and embossed the Small Graph image over the flower in black, then added the graph strip and some dot images using DIs.  I stamped and embossed a sentiment then blended DI around the edges of the panel before removing the mask.

I took some black card and cut it to size to create a border for the focal panel.  I stamped the graph strip and dots images around the edges of the black card using DI, attached the focal panel to it and then attached them both to a white base card.

Fancy Flora.

For my second project I have used stamps from the F is for..., Small Graph Paper, Butterfly Mind, Freedom Flower and  Classic Alphabet Lower Case sets, Distress Inks, Versamark ink, gold EP, and pearlescent paints from my stash.  On a piece of black card I stamped the F is for... image using Versamark ink and gold EP.  I then stamped the rest of the word and embossed it.  I stamped and embossed the small graph image across the card, and stamped and embossed the flowers on a spare piece of black card.  I did the same with the butterfly, then painted both images and the flowers on the letter.  I cut out the flowers and the butterfly.  I used gold pen around the edges of the focal panel and stamped the large dots image randomly in DI.  

I stamped the definition image onto a small piece of black card and embossed it in gold.  I then die cut it into a tag, stamped the smaller dots randomly using DI, used gold pen around the edges and added some ribbon.  I took an ivory base card and stamped the Freedom Flower and small dots randomly around the edges, then attached the focal panel and tag.  To complete this design I decoupaged the flowers and butterfly using 3D glue.

Thank you all for popping by today, I hope that you have found my post helpful and enjoyable.  I shall be back later this month with more crafty fun!

Take care all,
