Just Wanted to say Hi!

Good Morning everyone, i hope you are enjoying a sunny bank holiday.  

Today im sharing some simple hello cards trying out my new Katzelkraft stamps and my old favourites of brushos & pixie powders.  





6x6 white cardblank.  Using the stamp platform i first stamped my 2 dogs onto white card, being silhouettes the stamp platform is ideal for repeat stamping to build up a nice even black image and then added the sentiment.  After die cutting into a square i used turquoise brusho and purple pixie powders and spirzed with water and left to do its magic.  Adding the pixie powders adds a lovely pearlised shimmer.  Mounted onto black card and then the base card.  Orange gems to embellish.



Same as above just using gambage brusho and red pixie powder, blue gems to finish.  On each of them i doodled in some ground for them to sit on with a black fine liner pen.

and now the cats..






I first stamped the cat stamp, again using the stamp platform so i could get them nice and back.  I then die cut into a stitched octogen and added gambage brusho and red pixie powder.  I love the gambage brusho as its has a mix of colours in it.    Mounted onto black and then a 5x5 white card blank, cutting to the octogen shape. Blue gems to finish.




and a blue version.
