Crafting in 2014

.... wow 2014 already. How was your Christmas and New Year? I hope you had a fantastic break. So crafting and the year ahead. Well i haven't been great at blogging last year, amazing how time just seems to pass by and before you know it, a month or even two has gone by and you haven't blogged... well thats how it was for me. So this year I have decided to try and blog 2 - 3 times a week, and instead of looking the pieces i have created, and thought nagh I can't post that! well I'm going to post it even if it doesnt make to a finished card. I have a drawer full of pieces that haven;t made it to finished cards And an even fuller craft room full of craft goodies that i haven't played with yet. So my new years resolution is try at lease one new crafting thing a week, and then post the results.

So here goes.... hope you enjoy

This time around i'm using Sheena's stamps, and its the Only words through the rain and flower power sets. For the background I used adirondack inkpads - Lettuce, stonewashed and wild plum. I added them to the gelli plate using a brayer.
First of all i put down masks, these where just stamped on to white copy paper cut out and layed down on the gelli plate, then I applied the inks.
I spritz it with water (and a little purple mica powder)
Put down the lavinia card and lifted the print.
Then I stamped in the flowers and coloured them using distress markers
Stamped the saying "Its your day" in crimson red versa fine
and rounded the edges with green guilding flakes.

well until next time... take care xx Claire

And here is the finished card :
