A Flowery Sheena Sneaky Peek

Afternoon folks. At last I can share with you some sneaky peeks of the samples that have been keeping me quiet over the last week.

For someone who loves their garden and flowers as much as I do, these new stamps were a dream to work with, especially with the new clear rock-a-blocks that Sheena has eventually persuaded Crafters Companion to make for her. It was a bit of a joke at the DT retreat that I didn't like the old purple ones but I have to admit to being a total convert now. These are sooooo easy to use.

The very first stamps I played with were the Bluebells.

I created the background with H20's splodged onto wet card and then overstamped with the bluebells inked up with the H20's. The decoupaged flowers were stamped and painted with the same colours.

The photos don't do the mica justice but I just managed to capture it a bit.

For this second sample I used Fusible fibre for the flowers. I have Karen (a fellow Inkoid) to thank for reviving this idea and it suited the bluebells beautifully.

I'll be back tomorrow with some Lily of the Valley and Sheena will be on Create and Craft this Saturday with all the new stamps and clear rock-a-blocks at 10am and 3pm.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you are keeping warm in this lovely Summer weather. We've had hail and sun and a balmy temperature of 6oC today.

Beautiful cards Lisa. What patience you have cutting out those bluebells like that - and the background is gorgeous.
Love them given the fusible fibre treatment. Bet they look fab IRL.
