Hello everyone, I hope your week is going well.
I was honoured this week by Zoe at Zoeblingcards with the Liebster Blog Award. If you have a chance, please visit Zoe's Blog to check out her beautiful creations. This is the fifth time I've received this award & I'm thrilled that fellow bloggers have chosen me. The idea behind this award to pass it on to 5 other blogs that you enjoy visiting & who have less than 200 followers. I've already passed it on so I cannot chose again, it's too difficult.
I would like to welcome the new followers and visitors that stop by. Blogging would not be so much fun without you, thank you for your support.
I have several cards today using stamps from the Fantasy Woodland set by Chocolate Baroque. I used different images & techniques for each one. There are so many wonderful images in this set and I've had fun 'playing' with them.
This first card is a mixed media design and I've joined into the "Use Stamps" Challenge over at Addicted to Stamps & More.
I used Dylusions Inks (red & purple) to create the background on the card above.
I also used Acrylic paints, Modelling Creme & Stickles with TCW
Circle Explosion & Dylusions Luscious Leaves Stencils. The tree is from Fantasy Woodland which I stamped with black Stazon.
I got my Pan Pastels out which blend so beautifully for this next card.
I blended the Pan Pastels to create the 'mood' behind the trees. I also added a little design with TCW's Mini Solace stencil and Distress Ink. I stamped the delicate trees from the Fantasy Woodland set along with the quote from Words of Inspiration (an awesome little set) with black Versafine Ink.
And for the card below I've changed up the colour combination and used Smooch Inks.
The background was created using Pool, Lime & Ocean Smooch Inks. For a description of the technique please see my blog post here. I embossed one of the small trees from Fantasy Woodland with gold to create leaves in the background. The main tree image was also embossed with gold & I blended Smooch ink to colour. I embossed a 2nd one to decoupage. The die cut is Spellbinder S5-062 and the small piece under the Owl charm is S5-063.
The photo does not do the Owl charm justice, he has lots of bling that it hard to see.
Well that's all for today !
Thanks again for stopping by,
