Spread Your Wings

Hello my lovely crafty friends.

I'm here today to share a couple of cards with you that I made for today's Inkylicious shows on Hochanda. You may have already seen some of today's samples previously on my blog or on Pinterest so I won't post those again.  Here are the cards that I'd like to share with you today:

I've had the 'Dreams Come True' stamp for quite a while now and this stamp really lends itself to beautiful backgrounds.  I've made this one quite feminine and used Spectrum Noir markers on the back and then dispersed them on the acetate with dabs of surgical spirit on cotton wool. I originally left it quite plain but felt that it needed something adding and so I used some Spellbinder Edgeabilities with black card as a border.  I felt that the border suited the theme of the card and I was much happier with the end result.

The 'Spread Your Wings' stamp was new to me, and what an absolute joy it's been to use.  I could have done dozens of samples with this one.  I have done a few in different colours, just to show how versatile this wonderful stamp is.

I hope that you got to see the fabulously talented Deby and Emma on Hochanda today doing their amazing demos.  If you didn't manage to catch it, then you can always use Catch up on Hochanda for the next week or so.

There's a new challenge starting on Sunday over at Fashionable Stamping Challenges so I'll be back then to share with you what I've made.  Until then, take good care of yourselves and stay happy:) x

I'm entering the first card into the following challenges:

  14. What lovely card, Sandra. Your beautiful backgrounds and colours really set off these lovely stamps. Thank you for your lovely comment, and I'm glad you enjoyed seeing my new stash. It is a shame when someone can't use them - there was a lot of new stuff and it must have been so frustrating for him being too ill to use it. I hope I do it justice! Thank you so much for your good wishes for my health. I'm doing so well these days - it's great!
