Evening folks. I hope your week has gone well. It's been a bit of a blur in The Craft Garden of Christmas samples one minute and birthday scrapbooks for my MIL the next!!!! No wonder my poor blog gets sadly neglected these days!!
Anyway, it's time to unveil the first of my Sheena samples. It's very strange doing Christmas in June but I must say with these new stamps it's been a pleasure to get in the festive mood. They will be launched on C&C on Wednesday 19th at 11am and 3pm as current schedules stand and in total Sheena has 6 new stamp plates, all very different from each other but all equally gorgeous.
This first one is great to work with. It's a large image and can be used in so many ways. My fellow Inkoid, Linda even turned it into a lovely Summer scene. Anyway, here is my winter version.
I used distress inks for the sky and then painted the image with H20's before stamping all around the edge with the snow storm stamp that's on the same plate and embossing with silver WOW powder.
I loved making this second one and it turned into such a big image I had to make a card to fit it!!!! Talk about getting carried away.
I treated it like the collage I did a while ago with the abbey arches stamp. The image was bleached out of the distress inks with water before being over sprayed with the gold pourables that had been decanted into a mini mister. I then stamped the snow storm all over with white acrylic paint and the ivy corners were gold embossed and painted with green H20's.
It really had a lovely sparkle to it.
Well, that's me for today so thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a lovely weekend whatever you are up too.
