Rainy Days

Hi Peeps.....Just a couple of recent makes to share with you... I seem to be in vintage mode at the moment ?

This is a Crafty Individuals stamp stamped randomly over the card base with Versafine sepia. I'm sure there is a posh word for stamping then stamping again without re inking but anyway that's what I did for the background. The flower and leaves are Crealies and made of brown paper as is the mat and the 'runner'. I stamped the image onto cream card then roughed the edges with my scalpel and generally tried to make it look aged/tatty then applied vintage photo DI. Oh also coloured with DI's.

This is a Sheena Douglas stamp from the poppies and daisies set. I made a master sheet on A4 card using DI's, Chalk eyes, sequin waste and a Viva Decor script stamp but used a mask to cover the stamped daisy's before hand. The daisy's are coloured with a touch of DI's and my inkssentials white pen. I then just made a standard easel card and matted and layered my design on to it with a bit of ribbon and a sentiment from a Choc Baroque set (sorry forgot which as I keep all my sentiments together) Then I added a gold painted wooden butterfly

This is a Kanban stamp from the Steam punk range. I stamped the base card with a Viva Decor flourish. Used a scrap of patterned velum I found. Cut a large a Nesti which I coloured with DI's, and coloured the dress with the same, I think it was tattered rose, then I added a bit of sparkle with a Sakura pen. Finally added a pink flower
This is a Crafty Individuals stamp which I coloured with vintage photo DI and Inka Gold, then mounted on black card.  All the die cuts are spellbinders (iron works and picot edge circles) which I coloured with black soot DI and then rubbed Inka Gold over to give them the aged metal look. The backing paper is a CB one, from Essence of Nature CD and the sentiment is a Tim Holtz

And last but not least look who found his way into the clean laundry basket............. I put it up on the dining table then the monsters wouldn't sit in it and the cheeky thing has the audacity to hiss at me when I went to shoo him out...........Smacked legs and sent to bed early before he gets in the habit.... Cute though ha ha.
Be Good
