1st February 2018... SECRET GARDEN.

It's my turn this month to pick a set of stamps to showcase.
I have chosen this plate from Non-Sequitur....

Plate 44 Secret Garden  20 x 25,5 cm
During this month I shall endeavour to use as many stamps from this 
plate as I can.

Firstly I have 2x ATC'S........
I kept these very simple, stamped images with black ink and used distress inks to colour the backgrounds.

Next.... This card is stamped and embossed with copper coloured embossing powder.
I kept it very simple by just matting it onto copper card then onto a white card blank.
 This is the same image as above but instead of copper embossing powder I used black...
then I used distress ink to colour the image, hopefully giving it a 'water-coloured' feel.
I matted it onto black card, then onto a white card blank.
Two very different looks for one stamp.
 Last up today I have a canvas.....10x10 cms....
it's a little 'risque'.... but that's's
I stamped and masked my images to create a rather surreal scene,
then used distress inks to colour.

DISTRESS INKS various colours.
I hope you have enjoyed the 1st few projects using ths stamp plate.... it has so many
lovely images.. I hope to use most of them as the month progresses.
Thanks for stopping by today, see you next Friday for the next installment.

Beautiful artwork! I especially love the two cards with the magnolia flower, both very beautiful and so very different from each other! By using different techniques you can do so much with just one stamp!
