Flowers and foliage by Rachel

 Hello there! Rachel with you today with a second installment of my samples from the February shows. For my first sample today I have painted a ceramic piece with glaze using the Thistle Butterfly and Honeysuckle butterfly stamp sets. Once dry this was overglazed and then fired in the kiln.

In this next sample I used the Eastern Grasses stamp set. I started by creating the background of the card using a light green ink on my stamp. Next I stamped the topper on  a piece of card coloured with inks and layered this onto some black card. Finally I added the stamping on the right hand side using a darker green ink.

My final card was made using the fresh florals stamp set. Firstly I stamped the poppy image onto the left hand side of my card and coloured it using watercolour brush pens. Next I stamped the same image onto black card and painted it using mica powders. Its so shiny! I decided to layer it up using some red felt so its quite a tactile piece. 

Hope you enjoy your day!
Big hugs
Rachel xx

  5. What stunning samples Rachel, I love your card designs, beautiful colours and images and as for your ceramic candle holder it's wonderful. Do you actually make the holder your self or just paint it?..whatever it's gorgeously painted, Kate x
