Purple Butterflies...

Happy Wednesday,

Toady is the last wednesday off the month so its time for my regular workshop at Breedon priory.  We will be playing with the new media plates and stamps etc today so Im sharing a card we will be trying today.

I made the butterfly first using a mix of Izink pigment inks stamping off the ink using the feathers stamps.  I hand cut this out and added a messy bow and a set of the Gerbera daisies made up and shaped.

The background panel is made by running the brayer over the piece of card once I had smoothed the ink on the media plate.  I stamped over using ink from the media plate with the butterflies stamps.  I matted and layers this adding the butterfly over the top.

Flower and Feathers...

Happy Saturday,

Day five of the Sneak Peeks and today its the turn of the flower media plates.  Ive teamed them up with the feathers set for todays section.

This plate is in the shape of a flower and as with all the media plates is blank for you to add so much texture and images / colours to it.

once again here I have mixed the flower with the feathers using a lighter palette of colours.

More tomorrow, enjoy...

Falling Leaves...

Happy Friday,

Its day four of the sneak oeaks and today I'm sharing the Leaf Media plate and the skeleton leaves clear stamp set.  One of the most popular demos I have done with the media plates has been using a skeleton leaf I thought it would be handy to have a set of stamps to make this easy and to match!

Here i have used a selection of the stamps in the background wit the foreground using the same stamps in a brown on white.  The sentiment t is form the same set.

Here I used a selection of the leaf stamps along with the Leaf media plate and some fantastic new Izink sparks for the background. Tune into the show to see what these are and how they are used.

More Tomorrow,

More Dragonflies...

Happy Thursday,

Its day three of the Sneak Peeks for tis weeks launch of my new stamps and media plates, today its the turn of the Dragonflies.  As i'm sure you all know by now I love a dragonflies which Ive included in my die range, now there are matching stamps and media plate that all work together.  The Good News is that if anyone missed the dragonfly dies when they sold out last time they will be back in stock on Sundays shows.

I love the way the Dragonfly media plate has come out I really feel I can get some of the lightness of wings that they exhibit in real life.  Here I have used the smaller stamps on the plate and above with a mask to add texture.

More tomorrow,
