Crafty CardMakers challenge - for a special woman

Woodware are again sponsoring Crafty Card Makers this year so why not have a go at the challenge on there blog?
Another new stamp design from Woodware's new 2016 catalogue.
This one is called JGS434 Flowers in a Row and is perfect for Mother's Day cards.
The greeting is on the set too.

I've coloured mine with Sakura Koi marker pens, they really are fabulous to use.
I've hightlighted areas with yellow Stickles liquid pearls.

Although this is an older stamp and discontinued (JGCL577) there are
still some in stock at Woodware.
The border is punched from the crafty edger and the image is coloured with Copics.

Woodware challenge - Resist techniques

A card made with JGS441 Loopy Flowers, a new stamp for 2016. 

Here I have embossed in clear powder over black ink and have used inks over the
top to colour the background white card.

The glossy embossing resists the ink so the outline always stays clear.

To give it added dimension, I have bleached out some areas with
thin household bleach and have coloured in some petals too.

Woodware challenge - Just one layer

Now this was a challenge as I just love my layers!
So I enlisted some help from my neighbours eight year old daughter Fiona.
We had a colouring session with a set of my new stamps JGS456 the Blimps.
She used the fantastic Sakura colouring pencils, the ones in the very posh box and created this colourful masterpiece which we stuck directly onto area card.
So, hey presto, no layers needed!
