Saturday and time for a new challenge at Allsorts where our host is Tracy who has chosen the theme of 'CAS' and for the winner we have a pretty floral die and frame set from Sizzix.
I also have a sneak peek of some of what's coming up on tomorrows Stamp Addicts show on Hochanda at 12 noon, it's a Christmas show with several different Poinsettia stamps, plus more. Also my shares from my post today over at the Chocolate Baroque blog, this months Hochanda show was all about Roses so I was in my element.
For my Allsorts DT card I have gone for this lovely Penny Black stamp again, I really do love this one as you might have guessed from it's repeat appearances in various colours. As usual I used Distress Markers direct to stamp with a spritz of water and built up the colour by stamping a few times using my Tonic stamp platform. The sentiment is also Penny Black and to soften the colour I used grey ink and added a little of the magenta coloured Distress Marker and again a spritz of water which gave a nice soft finish with a hint of colour.
I made this one using two of the lovely new Poinsettia stamps in different sizes stamped onto vellum and heat embossed with details clear EP.
Here's my Chocolate Baroque shares from the Hochanda shows which were all about Roses, they are perfect images for making Summer cards........and confetti, I have been dehydrating rose petals on a daily basis to fill little boxes to hand out to guest as they arrive at Church for our eldest Granddaughters wedding.
Full details of how I made them and all the stamps used can be found here................
