Good Morning Ladies,
I hope today finds you all well and that those of you that are struggling to get food and supplies have found some kind of solution.
I wasn't feeling great yesterday and my creativity was taking a holiday so I decided to use the latest Creative Stamping Magazine freebie stamp set and follow a couple of their ideas.
For this particular cards I used the same 'Foliage' stamp on both cards to comply with the Challenge.
The first card used Distress inks blended together to create the background, I then masked a narrow strip along the bottom of the card off, I stamped the border, I used a lighter green to add some trees in the back ground of the card. I added the sentiment, using versafine Onyx Black. The cute hedgehogs were stamped onto white card, stamped in Archival Coffee ink, I fussy cut them three times and added two straight on the card, one raised using foam pads.
The second card is a 5 x 7 card, I took a 5 inch square piece of card and blended Mowed Lawn, Squeezed Lemonade, Tattered Lace. After blending the Oxide Inks across thr card and spritzed it with water to get it to 'Oxidize.
I dried it briefly and the cut it into strips, I used the foliage stamp to add detail to the bottom ofcthe strips and stars, stamped in Dried Marigold ink.
Next came arranging the strips, leaving space for a sentiment at the botton, I raised this layer up on foam pads. The finishing touches for this design was a handful of stamped and fussy cut butterflies.
All of the products used on these cards (stamps) were magazine freebies.
Take care sweet friends,
Love and hugs to all of you,
