Hello and welcome aboard our Stamp of the month Australasian Close to My Heart Blog Hop. If you have arrived here from Lauren’s Blog CTMH Craftings then you are in the right place. If you landed here by accident, no problem, please join in by following the link at the end of this post.
Today I would like to share with you this card which features December Stamp of the Month Candlelight Garden available exclusively throughout December for $33 or for just $10 when you spend $75.
This card came together very quickly. I had die cut the oval and then stamped the flower bouquet image onto it. The image was a little too big for the oval so I just bent the end of the stamp over the edge of the acrylic block and it worked out well. I used the CTMH blender pen to pick up colour from ink pads to colour the image in for something a little different from watercolouring. ( I don’t have an archival ink pad which doesn’t bleed as much with watercolours) I was able to get a soft colour with good depth for dimension. I used the last of my colour blending ribbon to make a bow and the Glacier bow from the Paper Fundamentals assortment finished of the card nicely.
Candlelight Garden is only available until 31 December from your CTMH consultant. I’d love you to leave a comment before heading off to the next stop, Wendy’s Blog – Expressions of the Heart.
This is my final blog hop for the Australasian CTMH blog hops. I have really enjoyed sharing my artwork with you and hope that you have been inspired to create your own artwork. I would like to wish all the CTMH consultants that have gone hopping with me all the best in their CTMH careers. It has been a pleasure working with you and I have been inspired by all your artwork as well.
