Morning Peeps, I hope everyone is keeping safe well........and sane, the latter seems to be a real challenge lately with us all being plunged back into lockdown and uncertainty, not that I've ever really come out of lockdown and shielding since last March. Our youngest son who went down with COVID just before Christmas is on the mend, scary that he's the young fit athlete of the family and it really knocked him for six. My MS is still having a hissy fit so commenting remains short and sweet, it's usually a few weeks before improvement when it sets in.
As it's Saturday it means it's time for a new challenge at Allsorts where our host is Helene and her theme is 'Something New'. Our winner this week will receive a super girly die set from Tattered Lace.
My 'new' comes in the form of a recently released floral stamp from Stamp Addicts called Groovy Blooms and is one of my samples for Hochanda TV. Sarah and Vicky have another TV show on Tuesday with some super new Judikins stamps, below is a sneak peek of a couple of the stamps coming up in the show along with the grunge alphabet.
So my top card, after creating an Oxide, acrylic paint and stencilled background, I stamped the blooms and leaves onto some old book pages, cut out and decoupaged, for the stems I used a fine liner to draw them onto the same paper keeping it all a bit random to blend with the style of the blooms. A few pieces of washi tape down the sides and a sentiment stamped into a piece of Aida fixed into place with a small clip.
I also have a post today over at the Chocolate Baroque blog, it features this card which is not unlike one I shared a few weeks ago but this time it has an acrylic background applied with a palette knife to obtain a different look. Also a YouTube video here, I know one of two had already seen it as I inadvertently published the video before scheduling it for the correct date......I was still trying to get to grips with the YouTube system!
These are the fun Judikins Cats which are one of the new stamps featuring in the upcoming Stamp Addicts show, as are the dotty lines and letters.
Happy weekend all and as always, many thanks for your kind visit.
