Day 2 of Sneaky peeks of Sheena's new sketchy stamps

Today I am going to try a monochrome theme  using 2 of the new sketchy stamps being launched by Sheena D on Friday 14th September.

First off what can be more festive than mistletoe? This stamp is great and I loved the striking end result of this card:

The mistletoe has been stamped with Adirondack Pitch Black  on 5 x 5 centura pearl and edged with distress ink (black soot). The mistletoe border has been embossed using WOW opaque white on black card which has been edged using a Krylon pen.

For the second card I have used the winter sheep set. Whilst this image can be Christmassed I think the monochrome makes it suitable for male relatives or perhaps even a sympathy / condolences card?:

The main image has been stamped using black archival onto cream watercolour card. The shading has been added with black soot distress ink and water. The background is made using Sheena's wood grain embossing folder and the whole thing finished with a flourish!!

Ta da! - ( Just like this post!) Have a great evening xx

  2. I got sidetracked having discovered Eileen's lovely blog and have just got back to you!!! Love the Black and White theme, Fiona.
    The sheep cottage is lovely. I did something similar with the other cottage. They are such beautiful stamps they look great in monochrome don't they.
