Hello everyone, more Sunshine Bliss today with a summery photo. The background card was actually white and I dug out my water colours and picked up some of the yellows and pinks in the papers to colour it (having said that I could have probably just chosen a similar paper from the range and saved all the painting, but I did enjoy it). I used the Vikki Boutin Colour wheel and Flower Garden stamps, carefully handcuffing them as my main embellishments. I also used a few of the die cuts - Mandala and also a new little trellis die that you can extend by layering it up. I also used the new tabs die from BoBunny and you can see one on the right hand side of the photo - lots of layering to add to all the colour on the page.
I hand cut my star burst and did it by eye mostly - all the mess is hidden under the photo. I also added some stitching too as there has been so much of that about at the moment....it inspired me.
You can see the co-ordinating thickers in this collection - I love the mix of patterns.
Here is a close up of the stamps - I recently bought a Tim Holtz stamp press and have found that has much improved my success with stamping precisely - I often am a vintage scruffy stamper, but with this full proof way of having everything lined up and being able to get a second go is fantastic. The Vikki Boutin ink colours are beautiful - they aren't water based so you can't paint with them, but they give an excellent burst of colour.
I hope you are all having lovely days. I will be back with some more projects soon.
