In the Forest so green


Morning everyone, time for another challenge at Allsorts and it's the first of two which will run for two weeks during August. Lorraine would like us to create our own background, inks, stencils all manner of options there. There's a prize of a £15 store voucher from WOWVOW.

Not a new make above, but not previously blogged and one I enjoyed making as I am right at home creating backgrounds, in fact DP's terrify me. To begin with I can never choose and once I do I'm never quite happy with how it looks alongside my stamping.

All stamps are Lavinia stamped with Versfaine Claire onto the Oxide background and circle masks used to create the moon with auras.


My second card using the Freesia from one of the new AALL and Create releases called Delight in Flora. Background brayered with two shades of Oxide,  the focal element stamped, some stencilling and stamped script (second generation), the bloom paper pieced using an inked offcut, along with the sentiment and letter F onto a punched circle which I covered with Glossy Accents and matching envie. The set is not loaded onto the A&C website yet, but is available from Create and Craft here.

And one final share which was for Hightlight Crafts using lots of Two Red Robin dies to create a summer meadows scene.


Have a lovely weekend everyone.

I tuoi sfondi sono sempre bellissimi e un tutt'uno con le tue timbrate, fa parte del tuo stile inconfondibile e sempre molto interessante!! Sai che adoro le tue scene di fate, riesci sempre a creare un ambiente perfetto per loro, così magico!! Mi piace tantissimo l'effetto della lna con le sue aure e quelle piccole bolle/gocce aggiungono movimento e magia alla splendida scena! Stupenda così monocromatica nelle tonalità del verde!!
Bellissime tonalità nella card con i timbri AALL and Create, dolci e solari! E inconfondibile design con gli stencils, il paper piecing delle fresie (fiori che amo moltissimo!!)e i cerchi!
L'ultima card con le fustelle e le immagini di Two Red Robin è davvero rilassante e deliziosa, la rete rotta con l'uccellino e i fiori sono stupendi!! Amo sempre queste scene campestri e hai creato una bellissima atmosfera!
Spero tu abbia un buon weekend e che la tua salute stia migliorando giorno per giorno!! Abbracci!

It's a great challenge theme, and perfect for you Brenda- your backgrounds are always gorgeous! My favourite today is the Lavinia one, a magical scene using my favourite colour (not much green around in this part of the country just now!)
I hope you're doing well and your mobility is improving- not too long until the wedding now!

No challenge for you this theme... you are already an expert at backgrounds! Indeed both cards are fantastic. Vey tempted by the 2RR dies and papers, so effective at creating a realistic and pretty scene! x

Each one so beautifully done Brenda, you really are an expert when it comes to creating beautiful backgrounds!
Btw, the link to Create and Craft for the Aall and Create set goes to a RHD image, at least for me. Thought Id' let you know.

What gorgeous cards Brenda, beautiful scenes in the first and last cards, and brilliant stamping in all three. Love the Lavinia one and that verse is beautiful, I've not seen that one. I read it out to Hubby and asked if he could guess what it was about....Irish Fairies he said, well they could be, I was surprised at him, take care, Kate x

Gerrina said...

all three so beautiful, each in their own different way! A feast for the eye to come her... But you can gues that my favorite is the Lavinia one; that background is stunning! Hugs, Gerrina

Linby said...

Love the verdant card so fresh and pretty. Your second background is also full of interest which the beautiful pink flower and cute hares. Lovely scene for your third card. I think you must save a lot of space not using DPs!
