Circles and Squares

Hi, here is a card made using Clarity stamps and stencils.  The background colours are slightly darker than the photo shows and has been created using Distress inks, Mustard Seed and Peacock Feathers and some Lettuce Adirondack then I've applied Brilliance Moonlight White ink through the bubble stencil.   I stamped the ducks and tree with Black Archival ink onto a square of card and edged with a black promarker.

I am entering this into the October Clarity Stamp Challenge Circles and Squares.

Thanks for looking, your comments will be very welcome.

Love Sewing

A hanging MDF plaque made with some papers I had with a quilting pattern for the background.  The sewing machine cotton reels and scissors have been stamped and cut out and I added some glossy accents to the machine and scissors and attached them with Pinflair glue for dimension.  The wording is stamped onto different colour squares and cut out then glued together with more Pinflair glue, I've added Stickles gold sparkle around the edge of the letter squares although its not too visible in the picture.  Finally I stamped some faux stitching and pearls around the edge and made a flower from buttons. 

Thank you for looking your comments will be very welcome.

A 60th birthday card made using stamps and patterned papers from the  Heartfelt Creations Poppy collection.  The flowers around the oval centrepiece on the left are on the patterned paper and the ones on the bottom and top right have been stamped coloured and cut out to add dimension with Pinflair glue gell. The central image is stamped onto a white oval shape and coloured with Memento Rhubarb Stalk and Morocco inks using a paint brush.

Thanks for looking, your comments will be very welcome.
