Shaped Cards

Hi everyone

This is my submission for this months Clarity Stamp Blog Challenge 31 which is called 'Shaped Cards'

I decided to do a hexagonal shaped card which was die cut from a piece of linen card. Next, I die cut two smaller hexagons out of Centura Pearl card and created the larger background using Distress Inks splashed with water and the smaller one coloured with an Adirondack 'Pool' ink pad which was then stamped using the small 'Leafy Swirl' stamp. 

I stamped two small butterflies and coloured them in with Distress Markers, once cut out I added antennae made out small stamens normally used with paper flowers and added a little bit of stickles. The butterfly wings were curled and mounted on foam pads to give added definition.

I hope you like the card and any comments/feedback would be much appreciated. 

Good luck in the challenge everyone.

Lavinia Stamps Blog Challenge 9 - Hot Bright Colours

Just a quick post, late again as ever but I have a lot going on at the moment. For this challenge I have made a card using mainly Adirondack Brights dye based ink pads. 

The background hills are done with the different dye inks pads and then the silhouette stamps were made using a mixture of Onyx Black Versafine and Cobalt Archival Ink pad. Once dry a few highlights were added using a Sharpie fine point white pen.
