Evening folks. I hope your week has started well. We are being well and truly spoilt with this wonderful weather aren't we? Although it sounds like we have to make the most of the next few days judging by the weather forecast.
I spent the wet days last week cocooned in my craft room having a lovely play with some stamps I'd almost forgotten about. Sheena will be on your screens on C&C this Saturday 12th October revisiting some of her older stamps, amongst them the Poppies and Daisies and the beautiful Church. The Lakeland Silhouettes are also due to make an appearance.
I combined the Poppies with the Church for this sample. The church being stamped in Walnut stain and the colour pulled out with water. I then distressed the edges with scissors and added stamping and water blobs to age it. All the backing papers are stamped with the Ageing Beautifully set except for the embossed piece. The poppies are painted with Poppy H20, what else??
There are always so many beautiful new stamps to tempt us that we forget about the ones we already have. I have thoroughly enjoyed revisiting these and will share some more during the week.
Thanks for stopping by and Happy Crafting.
Edit-I've had a question in one of the lovely comments you've left from a lady called Annette. I can't track her blog to reply personally so hope you call back here so that I can answer your question. The poppies on this card are embossed with black embossing powder on scrap card, painted with H20's, cut out and stuck on with 3d glue. I haven't used any acetate overlays although I know Sheena did when she made her version of it. I hope that helps and thank you for your interest, I really appreciate it.
