Challenge 18 - Horsey Card 3

Bee Crafty Challenge 18 - Cheltenham Festival

This weeks challenge was based on the Cheltenhma festival, so I dug out some Paper Nation Decoupage pages and some horse themed paper and put these quick card together. I must make an effort to start my challenge cards much sooner in the week!

New Stamp Two ...

This is another of my new Woodware Clear Stamps - A Gerbera Flower. I used a Wild Honey Ranger Distress Ink, to distress a piece of cream card. (This was my first ever attempt at distressing) Then I stamped two gerbera images onto the card and cut one of the images out. I removed a few of the petals and then gently bent the petals back to give a bit of depth, The second image was then attached to the first using 3d foam, and the centre of the flower was filled in with glossy accents. A light dusting of gold glitter was added to the petals and hey presto I had a Gerbera! I plan to make lots more of these flowers in bright colours and then use them to make a card - I will post a piccie once I have made it!

Just One Of My New Stamps

Just had to share piccies of my favourite new stamp - It's a Wellington Boot Stamp by Woodware (available from Bee Crafty in Bidford). The stamp is just over four inches tall and is so easy to personalise. Just stamp your image onto plain card and colour in with your Promarkers or Distress Inks, or just simplystamp your image onto patterned card or paper and cut out the various sections to decorate your boot. I haven't decided what kind of greetings card I will make out of these as yet, but what I do know is that I will have fun making them!
