Well, wow, what a busy month May is turning out to be! I have LOADS to share; my first craft fair, my first DT retreat with "wor Sheena" and my fellow Inkoids :-) AND new stamps that launch on Saturday on Create and Craft :-) Can't possibly do it all in one post so will start today with some Sneaky Peaks!
Sheena's new stamps are just gorgeous! If you jump here onto Sheena's blog you will see all the new stamp plates and they are lush!
My first sneak peak is from the beautiful Violets plate. Not only do you get that GORGEOUS main image but also the art nouveau style swirls and a fabulous bee but more of that later! The card is very blingy as twinkling H2O's were used to paint the embossed image and background ( the Passion set with the addition of Oyster and Alfalfa). The swirls and wording are Dusty Concord distress ink. This card would not have been possible for me to create without the use of a brand new product , CLEAR rock-a-blocks from Crafters Companion. It is fair to say I lurve them so thanks Sheena and Sara Davies!! They made the shadow stamping and over-stamping with clear embossing powder a doodle - so happy camper !

The background is Centura Pearl ( the wrong side!). First add a couple of random strokes of white emulsion to act as a resist. Then cover in a wash of covered in a wash of Luminarte pourables ( I used the Citrus Punch set; one drop of pink grapefruit and one of sunburst.) The shape is the largest Resplendent Rectangles ( Spellbinders). This was then matted onto black mirri card. Finally I used Collal 3 D Gel glue to attach the blooms and some green ribbon. Finally I drew on the birds using a black micron pen- phew!!
Hope this was of help Shana? Don't forget Sheena's shows are at 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. on Saturday on Create and Craft. More sneak peeks and news tomorrow
