I won!

Good afternoon Lovelies, what a beautiful day it is today, sun is shining so I'm happy :)

I'm also very happy because I "liked, commented and shared" a post on the Craft Stamper Facebook page and was absolutely thrilled to be told I'd won some fantastic stamps by Indigoblu, I love their stamps and have quite a good selection already, so it was fab to receive some that I didn't already have, anyway they arrived yesterday and I got straight to work on creating a Journal page.

I used Dylusions paints which I applied and blended with a wet wipe, the circles were a combination of pot lids and circle stamps also by Indigoblu which were stamped using black and white Gesso, I filled in the circles with white Gesso and coloured with Gelato's, blending with my fingers, some gilding flakes with Flitterglu added some more texture.

These were the sets I won, but I did add other Indigoblu stamps to my project.



I hope you like my Journal page? Thank you so much for visiting today, enjoy the sunshine xx Zoe xx

Lots of Blue

Good evening Lovelies and welcome to my blog.

This evening I'm sharing with you 2 cards I've made using products all found at Oyster Stamps

My first card was inspired by Therese Calvird, there is a YouTube tutorial here I did do mine slightly different, I cut my Flights of Fancy Butterfly by Penny Black first and then stamped my background on seperate card using a stamp from the Trust the magic by Finnabair set, the sentiment is from Don't forget to fly by Finnabair.

My second card is for a male family friend, his party is this weekend which I'm very much looking forward to, dies and masks are Memory Box the Banners are Die-Namics STAX Fishtail Flag.

Thank you for taking the time to visit today, please pop back tomorrow, have a great evening xx Zoe xx

Good morning Lovelies and welcome to my post for Oyster Stamps Blog Hop.

The second prize is: A Stamp from the Heartfelt Creations Poinsettia Range.

Now for the important bit -

You must visit each blog in order, starting with Neet you must comment on each blog and follow! We will be posting our blog makes each day there after.

Here is my tag using one of the Poinsettia range by Heartfelt Creations and the Memory Box Die - Open Studio Distressed Holiday Collage.

I masked off the script and just stamped the pretty holly border I masked it and then I used dark brown Brusho spritzed with mica powder in water and placed bubble wrap over until dry, it doesn't show in the photo but there's a very subtle shimmer, once dried I die cut the corner and mounted onto dark brown card, I coloured the border and bauble (which was stamped onto a seperate bit of card, cut out and decoupaged) with the same Brusho.
