Hello lovely

Hello, here is my blog post from Seven hills crafts blog.
I have quite a lot to share today. 
Do you ever start playing with new stamps and just cant stop? lol 
Well that's what happened here with Concord and 9th flourish stamp set and wonderful words dies.

My first card is really simple to make .
To start I stamped some of the flowers from the Flourish stamps set.
They are stamped around the top edge of the card as I wanted some empty space.
I then used distress inks to colour the whole panel and flicked some water onto the ink and allowed to sit then using a paper towel took off the water.
This removes the colour  and adds some extra detail.
The sentiment is made using the wonderful words dies and the hello from the stamp set.

My next card carries on with the distress ink background.
I added the colour to the top and bottom of the panel  before stamping the leafs and stem.
They all come as one stamp so you can have them all in the order shown or you can choose to just ink up the part you want to use.
I inked it up with brown ink and wiped away the ink from the leaf areas and stamped, then did the same but the other way around with green ink. 

I then stamped the berries directly onto the panel to.
Th large flowers are stamped in shades of pink and yellow then fussy cut and added to the panel and one with foam tape.
To finish I stamped the sentiment in black archival ink and added some sequins.

My last card is actually the first one I made as soon as I open the stamps. 
I was just playing but decided to go with it as a card.
I used distress inks but before stamping onto my water colour panel I spritzed with water.
I did  this with all the stamps.

When everything was stamped and dried I used some distress ink to add the blue background.
Before adding the sentiment I used the new starry colours water colour paints to add some flicks of gold.
The sentiment is another of the die cut wonderful words and the friend sentiment from the flourish stamp set.
Again I finished the card with some sequins.
