Good Morning, thanks for visiting today,
Summer hols is well in swing, only a week left for my Ds...
We have a lovely Picture inspiration...for this fortnight's challenge #81:

Lozzy

Lozzy has created her mixed media piece by using 2 of the stencils from the Mixed Media Polka Dots Stencil set. The chains along the top and side are from the Bottle Of Stamp Set also the sentiment stamps are from that set to. Then used the splat stamps from the Watercolour Alphabet Stamp Set along with embossing powders.


Terri

Terri created a mixed media page using the colours in the inspiration picture to work with. She use distress oxides to create a background for her potion bottles. Using the bottle of stamps Terri stamped 3 bottles, she added texture to the  background with the Checkerboard stencil



Tracey
Tracey has been inspired by the colours within the picture challenge and created a doodle book. Both *NEW* Paperbabe stamp sets Isometric Fun and Like Clockwork have helped embellish the book cover along side the Spritz and Speckle stamp set. Words from the Just because stamp set encourage from front to the back.


Beata
Beata made brown Angel used Paperangel Fibreboard Substrates and Stamp Set Kit. Coloured by watercolors and white pen. White splash and sign to finish it:)


Delphine
Delphine used a pebble and went for rock painting. She put gesso first, then stamped a fox from the Whimsical Woodland Set 1 in Pumpkin Stazon and Sepia Archival Inks. She then painted her rock using acrylic paint (mostly Fresco Paints) and added a few details in Posca Pens and a little heart from the Whimsical Woodland Set 1 too.


Kim
Kim was inspired by both the picture of the cairns and the earthy colours... she experimented with the gelli plate using polka dot and herringbone stencils. She felt the sentiment sums up the balancing of the rocks perfectly.

New Stamp sets ~ Isometric Fun

Hello and welcome, we are showcasing a couple of new stamp sets yay!... although I had these at the Handmade fair I haven't had the chance to put them in the shop...
Isometric Fun
Like clockwork (coordinates with the Clockwork frame).

Please check out the amazing samples below the team have created some beautifully inspiring projects...

Kim





There are so many possibilities with the isometric fun set, I could have stamped so many different designs, the simple design means making custom backgrounds so very versatile.
The Like clockwork set was designed to coordinate initially with the Hatter frame, although it can easily be used in it's own right as shown here.



Chris
Chris made a journal layout using the stamp sets Isometric Fun used to stamp inside the hair outline, Female Face to create her face and Rose Layers to stamp the roses.


Delphine


Delphine created two CAS cards, stamping the grid from Isometric Fun on a white background. She then used elements from the set to have some coloured triangles. On her first card, she added the Just A Note sentiment from the Butterfly Pieridae set and the You Quote Comfort Zone rubber sentiment for her second card.

On these two CAS cards, Delphine created her backgrounds using watercolour markers, then stamped the Isometric Fun grid. For the blue card, she combined it with a candle from the Birthday Wishes set and a birthday sentiment. For the last card, she stamped Thank You in Versafine and added hearts from the Butterfly Pieridae using the grid's guidelines.



Tracey
Tracey created this beautiful angel using the large Paperangel stamp set along with its coordinating MDF substrates kit, with some texture detail from the Pop Dots - Design a Tweed sets.


Thanks for stopping by, hope your summer hols are off to a great start.
HuGs Kim and the Team x
