a stamping play

Good evening everyone.

Well! I did tidy my desk & I did get to play.  Did you spot this freebie during the last few days?

It 's a full A4 sheet & comes with the latest issue of "Creative Stamping" - lovely Renee Mackintosh style stamps.  So I chose a couple of the stamps & got stamping.

Ignore the image second up on right hand corner -  guess who didn't have her stamping mat in the right place.  I stamped them in black archive ink & heat embossed with clear EP.  Next I coloured them using my faithful pearlescent water colour paints & water brush. 

Then sat & cut them out leaving a small white border around them.

I often mention my paints & paint brush - here they are - this is what I am talking about. I bought them years ago from The Works & they were so good I bought another set.  This is still the first set I am using & the pale green (2nd from top on left) has just worn through to the palette & I think the pink one will be doing so soon as well.

After playing around with different cards & layering colours - I created this card;

Very pleased with that - now I have to use the other pieces for more cards & try the other stamp images out. The Birthday Wishes is not part of the set - the ones in the set were a little too big for my design, but they will get used soon.

Tomorrow I am meeting Caroline for a coffee & natter, so may or may not have time to create again tomorrow.  We will see.

I hope you have had a good day too.  That's me for today.
'Bye for now.
