SWEETPEA STAMPS

I am lovely being on the Sweetpea DT and have been enjoying going through my Sweetpea collection of stamps.  I love having so many lovely stamps and  can chose the one that inspires me on that particularly day. 

For my first project I have used a fabulous stamp from Anna Marine called  Trick Me Once or available as one of four stamps on  Sheet 1, Plate 141.


I chose to kept to the green's and neutral's to reflect the IRISH theme of the stamp but I think she would look good any colour!

For my next project I used  Rachel Anderson's Sunrise also available on stamp plate - sheet 2, plate 111

CARD 2
For this card I wanted to try to achieve a watercolour wash effect for the background.  Have to admit I found it a lot harder than I thought to achieve.  Sometimes the simple effects are the hardest to achieve.   I used a blending pen to take out some of the colour giving a more subdued look.

My next project features Renee Biertempfel's Oceania  and available on Sheet 1, Plate 144.  Check out these stamps - she has created some wonderful backgrounds and I have been playing around with ways to achieve something similiar - unfortunately can't find where I put them!

I have to say in this photo she does look as if she has a black eye but this I think is due to the fact you are only seeing a partial eye!
