The coat...

Hi there yes you read that right is so blimmen freezing I need that winter coat back on!! hee hee but that's not what I mean with my title. I am talking about the lovely technique Joseph's coat.
I shot a video for our Stamp With Us members and I fell in love with it all over again. It is such a beautiful technique and like many others so little used.
I have used Apricot Appeal, Certainly Celery and Pale Plum for my background colours swirled across some Whisper White card stock, I then embossed in clear the Medallion and Baroque Motifs stamps. The final step was to sponge Elegant Eggplant ink all over the card including the embossed areas. The result dramatic and so very beautiful. I have since played with a fee variations of the same technique you will have to wait and see them soon.
And the flower....


...well the flower was simply made from 1 1/4"circles. Simply twirl the edges against something like a bone folder and bend into a cone shape. Stick in place onto a circle piece and add a centre. Love how this card ended up.
The other thing I wanted to share was my NEW COLOURS. My order arrived last week and I was gutted as I couldn't play till the weekend. Jane a Joanne came over and we all chatted more than crafted but we did manage to make a few cards. This was the first one I made

Finally I managed to ink my Bird on the branch. I adore this set and I love RICH RAZLEBERRY!! But I have to confess I love Melon Mambo more *shock* as I really thought razzle will be my fave.
So Rich Razzleberry, Melon Mambo and Summer Sun, the branch was stamped in Soft Suede and the dots in the softer So Saffron.
Right I am off now, thanks for stopping by  hope to see you again soon. Till next time Hugs xxx
