I recently went to a workshop with Annette Lee and this stamp was part of our kit and I love it. We made a canvass but this is the second card I have made useing it and I cant wait to make more. I think I may zentangle the next one.
7x7 card and a piece of black card six and a half inches square and a piece of white card six inches square. Also a piece of A4 card.  Paper Artsy chalk acrylics in Jade,Prawn and Southern Skies. Artiste spray gold shimmer ink. Sentiment was Stampers Anonymous  and the stamp is from the Paper Artsy Eclectica rang. The white dots are gesso.
To make I randomly applied the three colours of paint useing a baby wipe to the A4 card and to the small square piece of white card. when dry I sprayed with the gold. On the A4 I then stamped all the flower parts doing 3 of each of the flower heads which I cut out and layered. I randomly stamped onto the 6x6 piece with the small stamp  then glued on all of my flowers and finished by adding the white gesso to the buds with a ball tool. To complete I layered onto the the black card then the base card. The sentiment was then attached after layering on black card as well.
I would like to enter this card into the CRAFT STAMPER MARCH CHALLENGE

Hello to all you lovely bloggers and followers. Yes its me back again after a very long time away. Can I just say thank you to all of you who visited my blog last year and particularly those who took the time to leave lovely comments. these make it all worth while. Not to dwell too much on things but just a little explanation as to why I went of the radar. Sadness visited my life towards the end of last year. My lovely brother took ill and then died in December. It was particularly hard as he did not live local to me so I couldnt see as much of him as I would have like to. I found it difficult  to focus and hence my absence.
A new year began and slowly I have got my crafting mojo back. It started first of all with a workshop with Annette Lee which I will share with you later but today I am sharing some of my work that I did last weekend at the Anna Finnibair workshop I attended. This is the second one that I have been fortunate enough to attend and believe me she is amazing. Not only a talented lady but such a gorgeous person to. I couldnt begin to start to describe to you how these were made but  I will just say that the top one featured my dear mam. The second one was a fifteen minute challenge we did which was such fun and the picture is just random. The third reatures my beautiful daughter Sally on her wedding day.
Hope everyone out ther is well.
Happy Crafting
