Art from the heart 4

 Hello again I am back and probably for the final time today

I had this idea for a very quick card after seeing a painting on etsy.  I had the dandelion stamps and dinkles what more can a girl ask for lol

I have called this ''Art from the heart'' obviously!

For this project I used

Lavinia stamps - Dandelions and Art from the heart

Nocturne Versafine clair for the dandelions and sentiment.  I did not heat emboss the dandelions as I want the colour to be at one with them and not separate from them - I don't know if that makes sense but I know what I mean lol

Lavinia Dinkles powder - Chili Jam, deep yellow, yellow, Lime divine and burnt orange

Stickles Platinum, golden rod, gold and candy cane

Lot of mess for the process but am quite pleased with the outcome

Thank you for coming on over again

Ho Ho Ho!!!!

 Hey everyone I am loving the new challenge over at Peace on Earth Christmas and the moodboard features the Big Man, the one who checks off the Naughty and Nice list,,,,, I am usually on the former lol


I found this stamp in my drawer and I think it is a Stampendous stamp.  I have had it for so many years and the packet went walkabout.

I stamped it using Versafine Nocturne.  I watercoloured the image.  I stamped the mini holly stamp by Lavinia in two corners and used a red gel pen for the berries. I used wink of stella randomly over the holly. 

Blended elements truffle around the edge of card and mounted the panel onto black card

Sentiment is by Marianne Design, Christmas Carols and was heat embossed using WOW Platinum sparkle embossing glitter



Thanks for visiting me and hope you will pop on over to Peace on Earth Christmas challenge and join in with the fun
