Now, back to the cards I made for today. My first card might be one of my favourite cards. 

I used the new Small Campfire DIE1067, Stars Background Stamp L5756, pairing them with an older die, the Fir Trees DIE084-V. I also used part of a newer sentiment Coffee Under Stars C5752. I used the second part of the sentiment.


For the background I used distress oxide inks blending until I was happy with the look. I then dried the piece very well, then stamped and heat embossed the Stars Background stamp using white embossing powder. I then splattered the background with Midas Touch Shimmering Pen.

I die cut the trees using watercolour paper and used Daniel Smith watercolours to paint, as I did with the campfire also.


For my second card I was being a bit cheeky. I stamped the Chairs E21380, and coloured using Copic markers. I then did the watercolour background, some of it smooshing and a bit with my paint brush using Distress Oxide inks. I added in the grass with Copics and stamped the Park It B5747 sentiment, and die cut using a circle die, adding shading around the edges.


Both of these cards were great fun to make, and I hope you have enjoyed them as well. 

Next up on the hop is Laura Fulcher.
