Inkadinkado Poppies

Am back for a short post to show you some quick 5 x 7 cards made with an Inkadinkado rubber stamp - really like their stamps because they are so well designed and detailed that you can choose to leave the stamped image as is or colour it, and both ways look good - great if you don't fancy colouring!!

for the first option I just added gold flowersoft and embossed the sentiment, giving it a slightly oriental feel,


and for the second one, I used faber castell polychromos pencils without blending in using sansador, just the pencil on its own..

Paper pieced Peonies from Penny Black

 Hi bloggers, have neglected the ol' blog for a while as have been working away doing other things, but have a few bits to post, so here goes the first of a few days' photos for you to have a peek at.

I used an old Penny Black stamp called Peonies which is rubber and wood mounted - absolutely delighted to see what looks like a re - release of the image in the new Penny Black Flower Gallery set which you can find here.

Decorated the box for this one..

and love the Martha Stewart punch around the page set called Wild Flowers.

Some other photos to show you the gorgeous colours from the Twinkling h2O watercolour paints.. and the paper piecing - coloured a few layers and then mounted them so the flower is more dimensional.
