Hobby Art Daisy Stamp with Perfect Pearls
Good morning everyone.When I was at the Harrogate craft fair I visited the Hobby Art stand. Its a must, to see Jenny Mayes and her lovely daughter Becki. A great team. As always I came away inspired. I can watch Jenny for hours. Her love of stamping and colouring is so apparent when she is demoing. She was useing Perfect pearls and that really got me going. I always have loved mica powders but she gave me a fresh view on them. so I bought her new daisy stamp, came home and this is the result. I have recently been makeing backgrounds with shaving foam and Cosmic shimmer mica sprays. WARNING this is addictive. Anyway I used a piece I had made for the background and then stamped the Daisy stamp to the very left and very right of card in versamark then brushed with Pearl perfect pearls. I then stamped the main image onto a piece of card I had first distressed with Adirondack pale pink . Next I mixed some pearl mica and dipped crunched up cling film into it and dabbed onto card. I then stamped the Daisy onto the card and painted it with the pearl and filled the middle of the daisies with Wild Honey distress ink. I did also paint in some of the daisies on the background. While I had the paint wet I stamped a load of the daisy heads cut them out and painted those also and then cut them out. The card was then assembled matting and layering on pearlied cardand glueing some of the daises onto finished card.
I had great fun useing all of these techniques and hope you like it.
I am going to enter this into The Fussy and Fancy blog challenge and also send to Hoby Art and hope they are kind enough to put it on the customer gallery.
