The first uses spring awakening, stamped with black versafine, clear embossed, and coloured with pencils.
Die cut, then mounted on a 7" square white card blank randomly stamped with an old flower stamp from my stash using old paper distress ink, then sponged round the edges (Briar rose butterfly, currently available through the Craft Channel website)
Summer fair is the next stamp, again stamped in black versafine and clear embossed before colouring with pencils. I stamped a mask using masking tissue and masked the image before adding a gelli plate background uisng distress inks.
Again an oval die cut, and a 7" square white card blank stamped with a stamp from poppy meadow across the bottom using peeled paint distress inks, with some of the colour dragged out with a waterbrush.
Autumn medley also has a gelli plate background added after colouring and masking the image, this time using acrylic paints and leaves from the garden.
This time the mount is an 8" square white card.
The wood -effect background is thanks to a link from Eileen Godwin - I used weathered wood, peeled paint and wild honey distress inks over the glue onto white card.
winter dawn, stamped with versamark onto light blue card and embossed with silver. Coloured with pencils again, white chalk marker for the snow , rhinestones added to the snowflakes.
Base card was 8" square in silver pearl, randomly stamped with a snowflake stamp from a child is born using silver pigment ink.
The mats are dark and light silvers.
