More card ideas....and a video!

Hi everyone, I've been playing with Lin's new stamps again and have created a few more samples...and as they are fairly simple and quick, I've made my first video tutorial!


As there are a few samples to share, it's about 10 minutes long so if you've got the time grab a cuppa and enjoy.....all feedback and comments welcome.



Close ups and finished cards



Stamping in watering can archival ink, gold paint, and the embossing powder is gold sparkle




All of the large stamps work so well as a base for collaging the smaller stamps onto.



So simple and quick


'Inspire' works just as well with the leaves as it did with the butterflies in my last post...


...and yes it is probably my favourite.


Thanks so much for dropping by, not sure how long before my next video, it does take a bit of work especially when you are learning from scratch and filming on a makeshift tripod that looks very Heath Robinson! Have a lovely creative time whatever you are doing.

  9. Really enjoyed the video, very educational. I have often thought about delving into collage but never had the confidence. Now I can refer to your excellent demo, I feel more confident. Thanks. The tag is my fave!!
