Seasonal Snowflakes

I have found with the Seasonal Fragments stamps that they are such a great inspiration to making cards all year round.
This is the first card I've made that will go into the box of festive cards for this year.
I used the snowflakes with a three blue inkpad and stamped all over the card. The stamp was rotated and the snowflakes fits together well. The tree is from Turtle Doves and again I used the same inkpad. A die cut snowflake and sentiment was added.
I'm sure that I will use the snowflakes stamps, there are two in many other cards.

Her basket of Dreams

I spent Saturday with an amazing group of ladies who were taught by the truly talented Tracy Easson.
This is the room before we started.
I have always envied people who can draw faces well. Tracy taught the group of 21 to achieve our goal. Some of the ladies were more confident than others and Tracy supported through the process. 
To say we all had the same teaching, tools and media, each canvas had it's own individuality.
I have fallen in love with drawing and painting these figures and will continue with confidence.
This is a girl I did on Sunday, she was my third attempt of the day.
I showed my hubby and he was impressed (as much as a crafters hubby can be) (very nice darling). So I bought a frame and she's sitting on my newly painted sideboard. I have a great love of pottering in the garden so included a few plant pots.
Thank you for visiting

Let the wind blow

Good morning.
The Seasonal Fragments are proving to me that they are going to be a go to set of stamps, that will have so many uses.
My card is made from only three stamps. The dandelion seeds from the Seasonal Fragments, the fairy from December Fairy and the thistle from Thistle Butterfly. I used Seedless Preserve Distress Ink to colour and added a little colour to the thistles with pens. All of the stamping is done with black Versafine to help show the detail. A little stickles was added to the fairy wings.

I also made a little tag using the flowers from the Seasonal Fragments. I will be adding it to a tag book that I'm in the process of making.

Many thanks for visiting

Seasonal Fragments Tree

Good morning.
I have thoroughly enjoyed playing with the new Seasonal Fragments and have enjoyed making a wide range of backgrounds with them.
I started with a piece of Kraft card and stamped with black versafine ink then coloured with Prima watercolour pencils in autumnal shades. I was delighted with the colours on the card.
Using cream card I stamped the Woodland Design-a-Tree stamp with brown ink and the leaves were stamped using various colours. I started with the lightest colour then filling the branched with the darker inks. I chose colours from the stamping to matt the tree image and background stamping.
