Look on the Bright Side by Amanda Southern


Hi Everyone

And a very Happy New Year to you all. 







I start my year with my homage to Azoline, one of the stamp designers for Carabelle Studio. It wasn’t an intentional homage but it has ended up as such.



Here’s What I Did:-


I started with a gelli print as my background, I used one of my rejects from my box as I knew that I would be mostly covering it up. Taking several colours of Stazon ink I randomly stamped flowers from many of Azolines stamp sets all over the background randomly changing the colour of my ink pad. Over this I then stamped the main flower with versamark and covered with black embossing powder and heated. I then coloured the flower with Spectrum Noir sparkle pens and a white gel pen. Unfortunately the photograph just doesn’t show the sparkle. I then stamped the border stamp all around the card before I cut it into strips and glued to black card. I stamped and coloured the little ladybird girl, her cloak is in sparkle pen, and cut her out and added to the card. The sentiment is a Tim Holtz Chit Chat sticker.


Here’s What I Used:-

See you all next Tuesday and I hope you are all back in the crafty swing of things

Love
