Bloom .....


A set of Twinchies made for a swap over on UK Stampers Forum .....

I cut the bases from re-cycled food packaging and then chose some printed paper from IndigoBlu and cut this to 2 x 2 inches. This was stamped with a skeleton leaf stamp in green Versafine Clair ink.

I then took a flower stamp (IndigoBlu) and stamped this 4 times on white card. I then coloured each of the flowers with Posca markers adding a touch of gold. These were trimmed out.

The backgrounds were added to the bases and the flowers stuck in place and a hand-drawn leaf added in more Posca.

The words (IndigoBlu) were stamped in black Versafine, heat embossed with clear embossing powder and trimmed out before edging in black ink. They were added as shown.

Each of the Twinchies were then edged in Krylon gold pean to finish .....

Made an Artist Trading Card for a Challenge in Crafty Individuals Facebook Group where the theme is 'Winged Things' ......

I cut the base from re-cycled food packaging and cut the background paper to the same size featuring some blue wood effect (Crafty Individuals). This was then stamped with Versafine black ink and this was heat embossed with clear embossing powder.

I then stamped again in the same ink on white card, again heat embossing with clear embossing powder. Just the birdie was trimmed out and the body coloured with blue Distress Ink wash. This was then applied on foam pads over the original image.

I decorated the hearts and leaves with dots of Posca marker in red and green.

The ATC was edged with red Versamagic chalk ink and finished with some self adhesive letters spelling the work 'fly' ... these were edged with black Micron pen .....
