Then of course everyone has releases around the same time so of course multiple orders going out on the wire here - there - there - ohhh dear time to stop ordering and let them all arrive. Which of course they all do within a week or so of the other and bang already the wee little basket is replaced with a bucket to be replaced with a roll away rectangular container to be buried under the mountain. DARNELL it must be nearly time again for a NBUS challenge, maybe with no limits on entries along as each entry is totally new schtuff???????
Ohhh who am I to complain I love NEW STUFF.
Anyway onto todays post
Isn't this beautiful. This is the stamp that arrived yesterday from Simon Says Blog hop win. The stamp is a Hero Arts 'Flower Medley' Background. As soon as I saw it I had to have a go. The top picture looks a bit spready at the bottom as though collapsing but its not so just must be the angle of the dangle.
Stamped with Versamark ink then white embossed on Tim Holtz Watercolour cardstock. Looked to see what others had done with it and found that its so NEW that there was very little to look at at all. Must admit white embossed on white can make it hard to see what your doing so I kept looking at the wee sticker on the back on the package that have a grey and white image to work from. I did a very very pale was of different colours picking out each type of flower and staying the same for it. At first I did orange roses, yellow little daisies, blue bell flowers, fuchsia ultra little flowers and green formal leaves.
Then played around, added more water and daubed with towel to remove excess water and colour, changed colours and generally played around till I was happy. the leaves dominate so I came in with a couple of different greens and yellow and teal to add some contrast.
Finished off with a bit of sparkle from gems here and there and just added straight to the card base. Card cut down slightly so it was the same size. Was going to leave with no sentiment then thought of the Penny Back 'Make A Wish' Die and thought this looks like a card you would go to to make a wish and cut two, one in black and one in grey to stick behind the black. Attached to the card.
Now have another 2 panels stamped, embossed and ready to play, just have to decide what I want to do next.
But for now I'm going to add this to Virginia's View Challenge - Stamping #16
Thanks for coming to visit and as I love to say ' See you when the mud cracks'.
