Imagination Crafts Inspiration Post

Hi all

For my Inspiration Post this month Iv'e used one of the lovely new Celtic Die Cuts from Imagination Crafts and Lavinia Stamps.  

I coloured my cardstock with Denim Archival Dye ink around the edges and stamped a leaf design onto the card edges over the top with yellow, blue and bottle green ink.

I then added a Celtic Die Cut and used Detail Sparkle to add dimension to the wings and leaves on the tree.

The whole card was mounted on different coloured cardstock and the main card inked again around the edges with Denim Blue Archival Ink. I used another leaf stamp to decorate the edges again with green, blue and yellow inks.

Merry Christmas was stamped with Versamark ink and Silver Mica powders added, I then stamped the words again with Black Versamark ink to make it look like the words were in shadow.

Detail Sparkle was added to the sides of the card for decoration,

Products used:

Detail Sparkle - Silver Gilt
Celtic Dreams Die Cut- Nurture
Adirondack Ink Pad Denim and Bottle 
Stamp - Flowers Fushia
Mica powders

Imagination Crafts December 1st Project - Christmas Card

Hi all

I'm thrilled to continue on the Design Team for Imagination Crafts so here's my project for 1st December using more of the lovely versatile products.

For this project I used the Christmas Trees stencil and 3 different colours of Sparkle Medium on a patterned piece of cardstock.

The Leaf Flourishes stencil was also used with Silkies to create the border background.  I added Detail Sparkle too to create the look of snow on the trees and on the ground and to highlight the border.

Landscapes are one of my favourite subjects and these pre- pattered Tag Cards are perfect for his type of artwork.
