Rose Hip Fusion

Good morning everyone its raining cats and dogs here typical bank holiday weather
but im sure the garden will love it.

here is another card i have made using the Fusion rose stamps and paints, it was so easy to achieve
cut out the die and stamped on some leaves and berries on centre circle painted them in using just the greens and the red paints then distressed around the edge with inks
then stamped 3 extra leaves and few more berries which i cut out to decoupage around the Marianne die

the bottom three berries i cut some wire off some small roses twisted into a branch and glued on the berries with pin flair once they were all dry i added a touch of glass glitter to edge of some leaves and diamond glaze to the berries they were all mounted on a white card stock and distressed around the edge matted onto some gold mirri card then onto some Core-dnation card stock  from crafter companion added a bit of ginham ribbon and a gem

thank you for popping by today i hope the weather is better where you are

Fusion Sweet Pea card

good evening to you all .yes its very late.......... been busy redecorating my living room which is all done thank fully and looking lovely.
to unwind i have still been playing with paints but the nice kind FUSION lol .

i had these papers printed out and never got around to using them so i decided to make some cards
here i used the sweet pea stamp my first time with this stamp................... so thought i would go pink and white paints to pull in the colours from backing papers............... i stamped extra flowers and painted those at same time......... i wanted to decoupage the front petals ...............i distressed the  nestie shape with distressing ink once i had done the flowers to add alittle depth and colour
when  it was all dry i added some crushed glass glitter just around the edges of the petals i think it makes them look as if they have been caught by the morning dew the papers were from a nit wit scrap booking kit buttons and lace from my stash
matted and layered on the core-dinations card from Crafters Companion oh that is so lovely to work with ........the range of colours are devine ............

i had my Humprey stamps delivered yesterday so im really wanting to get those little images stamped and coloured in .
thank you for popping by
