Dream until your dreams come true



It's time for our challenges at Stamping Sensations and Penny Black and More where our themes are 'Butterflies, Fairies and Wings' and 'Photo Inspiration' which has a strong hint of Poppies about it. As always there are wonderful prizes to be won at both.

My top creation is my Stamping Sensations piece which has a background of Distress Inks and pearl mica spray. To achieve the coloured sky I masked the water line across a piece of Fabriano and added the inks followed by the mica spray as this helps blend the colours. Next I removed the mask and used DI's to add he water, I then stamped the images with back archival. All stamps are from Lavinia with the exception of the sentiment which is Inkylicious and finally some glitter to the fairies wings and a pretty bow.


For my Penny Black piece I again started with a piece of Fabriano and repeat stamped the PB Poppies and then painted on masking fluid to all stamped areas. Next I saturated the piece with water and sprinkled on Brusho's..............I like to use 600gsm Fabriano when using Brusho's as it does not warp when using a lot of water.

When dry I stamped all time PB favourite Dance, Sing, Love, then rubbed away the masking fluid and coloured the Poppies with Spectrum pencils.

I hope you will join us at both challenges this month.

  8. Gorgeous stamped cards once again Brenda. I have been trying to play a bit more with my stamps and inking techniques of late, I seem to have gotten in to a rut of creating cards with decoupage images for customers, but I have missed stamping.

  37. Two gorgeous cards, brenda. The fairy scene is so pretty. I love the tree and branch that the larger fairy is sitting on and the wee flying fairy is so dainty and pretty...and helps create the depth to your scene.
    Your second card is beautiful. Thee poppies of course are wonderful, but I love the brusho type background. I am not sure how to create this yet, nor do I know what Fabriano is, but I finally have some brusho's/burst powders and will watch you tube to figure them out!
