Hibiscus & Butterflies Skull

 Our DT member Irene Carolan sent us this sample and we were struck by the way that she has coloured around the image as well as inside the image.
So we decided to duplicate the look but Vicky and I chose 2 different mediums.
Both images were stamped in black onto Kraft card

I chose to colour mine with Polychromos pencils

and Vicky chose Brushables, pigment pens.

Obviously I did not spend as much time on mine as you can see that Irene did on hers, building up layers of colour with her pencils. 
But you will see me demonstrate one of these on The Craft Store TV at 3pm on Saturday 22nd May.

Geisha Skully

 Geisha Skully will be making her debut in our show on The Craft Store TV on Saturday 22nd May at 3pm along with several other designs by Teri Sherman.
The top card is stamped onto Inchies and watercoloured
the bottom card is stamped onto craft card and coloured with chalk pencils.

Keeping it Simple

 Keeping it simple with only 3 different Versafine inkpads and 3 stamps.
Wisteria, Bee and Thinking of you.
Because of their solid style the inkpad does all the work.
They are stamped onto a sealed surface card which keeps the ink vibrant.

Colourful Mod Garden

 This one took me quite a while but I really wanted to have the Mod Garden with different coloured tops on so I coloured the stamp with water based pens but could only colour a couple at a time and then stamp, hence why it took quite a while.
The butterfly is stamped onto acetate and coloured on the reverse with Diamond Glaze and mica powders.

Mod Bloom in Amazing Glaze

 Did you catch our show on The Craft Store TV yesterday?
This is one of the cards I made using our Mod Blooms.
I covered the Twinchie in 3 layers of Amazing Glaze and then 2 layers of Gold embossing powder before inking with Pink Cosmos Stazon Pigment and stamping into the hot embossing powder.
The dragonfly is in the set with the Mod Bloom.
