Honey Doo Rose Stamp

Two different presentations of one stamp from the Honey Doo Stamps range -  Rose
The first is detailed painting with a watercolour wash  background
and the second is black stamping. Living with it as is but may add a pale wash to the flower and leaves.

Workshop Samples

Relaxing Workshop on Saturday!

It was quite quiet  on Saturday as we got our paintbrushes working!
Here are a couple of my extra samples I completed at home as my others got left behind on Teacher's table! I'll show them later

A lovely Penny Black Stamp called Poppy Gems was the featured stamp. Used Distress Inks but I smuggled in my Kuretake Gansai Tambi Japanese Watercolour Paints and these are what I used on these 2 samples.
Had a lot of freezing on my computer so hope this posts all right!
Thank you for having a look...

Flower CAS Card

CAS Card Challenge

A single Flower CAS card Design

Hole in the Wall Card

It's a Hole in the Wall

Had a great time making this card. It used several techniques. Stamping, Ink work for creating the tree scene, die cutting and flower making..... Embossed the brick wall and cut out the aperture randomly. I chose to use the new Metallic Gilding Polished from Creative Expressions ( also on the Bird Cage) to colour the wall.
Die cut the Orange Blossoms Complete and Open. Edged the open flowers with the Polishes  and stamped up the cut complete with the matching stamp.
Cut Finishing Touches Collection Laurel Leaves and used Bundled Sage and Spiced Marmalade ink to colour.
MDF Bird cage and Butterfly for interest.
Workshop held at J&C Creations. More details on their website. Here's the link:
