Hello Lovely Peeps.
Spring has sprung and there is a wealth of spring flowers in the park at the moment.
Among them BluebellsWhich brings me to this
lovely set designed by Janie Burnett-Bleach.
I coloured this in toning shades of grey then added Wink of Stella in a clear silver it gives it a metallic sheen. Sadly this does not reflect well in the photo.
This time I brought the Gelli plate out to play, Brayered a soft background. this really is a quick fifteen min card. Add Bluebells and Bees....a sentiment and that's it, job done
I have a confession This card the one above was an accident. I used the wrong ink as the background! Tim Holtz distress inks. Still using the Gelli plate I inked and pressed but... the effect was odd it went into speckles of ink! I liked the effect so stayed with it and this impressionistic type print was the result. This is just using the trees out of the bluebell set. and the grasses.
A combination of sets here still on the theme with Bluebells
( I do like this set can you tell!)
I have teamed with the Star of Bethlehem set. To add interest to a little wooden chest I picked up from the range ( I think ).
I Painted the box with soft acrylic blue paint then stamped the bluebells, around the lower half of the box and painted them in Twinkling H2Os. The star of Bethlehem I have had to stamp onto card, as I couldn't get them to sit and stay as I wanted. Painted then stuck onto the top of the little chest. Added some twine around the bottom and was going to add a few buttons but I couldn't find the colours I was after...Please with this it would make a nice little jewel box or a place to hide your sweets!
Last but not least is the baby in the cot. An older set along with the baby on the washing line But lovely....both come in grey rubber. and are a quick easy stamp to use when you need a Christening card or Baby newborn or indeed a first birthday.
Hope you like this month's samples xxx I had great fun making them xx
