Sir Stampalot February challenge

Good morning,

It's time for another challenge at Sir Stampalot and the theme for this month is "In the Garden". I liked this theme so much I decided to make two items.

For this card I used an image from Magenta called " Lovely Meadow". I stamped it with black Versafine ink and then heat embossed with clear embossing powder. I used alcohol markers and chalks to colour it. The paper is from Echo Park's "Country Drive' paper pack, the colour wasn't quite right so I swiped yellow distress ink over it and then stamped around the edges using one of my all time favourite stamps "Leaf Flourish" by Hero Arts (F5042). 


 My second project is a bookmark. I stamped Hero Arts "Wildflower Garden" CG170 in "Frayed Burlap" distress ink onto Claudine Hellmuth sticky back canvas and then painted over using Claudine Hellmuth Studio Line acrylic paints.I love this bookmark because of the texture of the canvas and the paints.

I hope you can join us this month.

Hugs and best wishes, Clare x

Absolutely love these, Clare, especially the card. They're so bright and cheerful. How ingenious to change the colour of the paper! I'd never have thought of doing that. Have a good Sunday,
