Dare to be Brave


It's the first Sunday of the month so time for our new challenges at We Love Chocolate Baroque and Stamping Sensations. Our themes for this month are 'I Love'.......so we want to see your favourite crafting loves and 'Monochromatic'. Prizes come from Chocolate Baroque and Stamp Addicts.

My "I love......"'s are inks, grunge, flowers and inspirational quotes, the latter for this one and the one below come in the form of two from my own stamp set released on Hochanda TV on Friday called Life Is So Much Better. The background is Oxides and stencilling, CB Floribunda Net stamped with Versafine Clair and the flowers stamped onto inky offcuts, cut and paper pieced. The quote is stamped with the same ink onto a piece of vellum and heat embossed with detail clear EP.


Two for Stamping Sensations and the first uses Stamp Addicts Oriental Lilly, stamped with Versafine Clair and coloured with Kitsch Flamingo DI, the same colour used for the stencilling and the sentiment stamped with the same Claire inkpad.


The second again had Oxides in various greens onto a masked base piece, stencilled sun rays then using Versafine Clair I stamped SA Feline Family along with some random numbers using SA Distress Numbers plus a couple of index clips.

Alice (scrAPpamondo) said...

Wow! Che cards stupende! Sono davvero vibranti e di grande impatto! I colori della prima hanno una grande energia, mi piace moltissimo lo sfondo a stencil e non avrei mai pensato di fare le foglie viola ma come sono belle!! La seconda ha lo sfondo più delicato, ma è così luminosa!! Bellissimi colori! Molto interessante anche la terza con lo stencil a raggi di sole e vedo che anche tu hai usato giallo e verde intenso :D
I tuoi sentiments sono bellissimi, Leslie ha fatto molto bene a trasormarli in rubber!!
Qui la primavera sembra arrivata, tempo di seminare e di piantare qualcosa nell'orto. Ieri ho messo a dimora due nuovi alberi da frutta: ho la schiena a pezzi ma sono molto soddisfatta.
