Welcome to the Blog of a Stamp Addict with OCD tendencies.
I mainly make cards but I am dipping my toes into altered art these days.
I'm happy when I have inky fingers and I love this crafty blog land! If you've popped by please leave a comment to let me know and I'll try to come visit you.
If you want to see how I made these papers then please look at my post here or for a proper step by step from our lovely Rocky go here. I've used one
of my brighter shaving foam technique papers to create this card and I think it works beautifully with this stamp.So here is what I have to share with you today …
Another C6 deckle edge creation
I love this cute little stamp and I think it looks beautiful decoupaged
Side view - should be okay to post
A final look
The background was created with
just my Distress Re-Inkers, Peacock Feathers, Picked Raspberry and Spun
Sugar.I really wanted to use these
colours and although I didn't achieve the 'swirls' I love the colour blending and splodgy inkiness I achieved which is a better way to look at it than oh dear I didn't get the swirls lol. Spun Sugar is one of my favourite
all time DIP’s even though it is very pale I love it, and using it with the Picked Raspberry and Peacock Feathers is my idea of inky heaven.
The Orchid is
a Dimension Stamps set I bought last year, a pre-loved set on
EBay which was fab value and I love it.
A useless fact
for you: I adore orchids and we've four plants in our utility
room. They flower when they want to. I've tried keeping them in our lounge and/or dining room so we can enjoy them more. If we move them they hate it and start to die. So they're in the utility and only watered when I remember. They don't need much water or care so are the ideal indoor plant for us.
back to the stamp set – this is the little orchid from the Occasional Orchid Dimension Stamps set. It is easy to stamp and colour and perfect for smaller cards – yay!!!
