It's a scheduled post today so fingers crossed it pops up on time with my Monday Prickly Pear DT card and mid month cards for Penny Black and More and Stamping Sensations.
My Stamping Sensations card is some inky indulgence with Dylusions and Glimmer Mist and Timmy's Papillon stamp set, still my favorite of all his stamp sheets which I used along with a mixture of background stamps and a little Frantage around the edges.
For my Prickly Pear piece I have used the lovely Cockerel or as they call them in the States Rooster GG0197. As you all know I don't do much colouring but managed to coordinate with the Graphic 45 DP's which go perfectly with the image.
Stamped coaster tiles, lantern and bottles all from Baker Ross
My latest package from Baker Ross had some Pebeo paints, tiles, bottles and lanterns and above is what I came up with. I found stamping onto the lanterns a bit tricky due to the shape so I stamped onto some fine tissue paper and then glued that onto the sections and it worked perfectly. The tile on the left has been painted with acrylic pain and then rubbed with gilding wax before stamping with archival ink and the one on the right stamped directly onto the tile using distress markers which I sealed with Slap it On. If you are not familiar with the company do check out their web site, their prices really are very competitive and they offer something for both the card maker and those who like a bit of altered art.
