Highland Cattle

Hello everyone,

Elaine here with my very first Hobby Art Blog Post using the lovely new February  stamp set Highland Cattle.

 COW

I started by taking a 5×7 card blank and a 5×7 piece of patterned paper and  I used an oval die to cut out an aperture from both.

COW2

I then used the larger thistle stamp to stamp on to the frame using black memento ink.

COW 3

I cut out a piece of stamping card to fit into the inside of the card a little smaller than 5×7,

Then I stamped out the cattle images to build up a scene also using memento black ink  and popped it under my aperture to check how it looked.

COW 6 COW 8

Now to colour in the stamped images.  I started with the background first and using my promarkers  I started at the sky and worked down to the grasses at the front.

Then I coloured in the cattle added a matt and glued it into the inside of the card

COW 9

COW 10

I stamped out a couple of the Thistles onto some stamping card and coloured them in along with the thistles on the front aperture. I cut out a couple of flags from the patterned paper and inked around the edges with some dusky concorde distress ink.

COW4 COW5

I also inked around the aperture then glued it onto the front of the card, I then fixed the flags to each side at the top of the card and using some 3d glue gel I added the thistle heads, and here we have the finished card.

Blue Poppies

Evening All,

It has been ages since I posted on my own blog, and even longer since I posted here on the Hobby Art blog. Life just seems to have got in the way recently lol.

Anyway, a couple of weeks ago a fabulous new stamp set dropped onto my mat from Jenny, the October Stamp of the Month Poppy Heads.

I love poppies and this is no exception.

As luck would have it I had some pieces of Gelli Plate background on my desk and so I decided that I would use one of them as the base for my card. As it was blue I thought it would get away from the usual red poppies for a change.

This fabulous set comes with a text background stamp which I used randomly on my piece of handmade background paper.

I stamped and embossed the stems and leaves on to the bottom of the panel,

and then coloured them in using Spectrum Noir Alcohol pens.

I didn’t want to have to do any masking so I stamped and embossed the poppy flowers onto some gingham background paper from my stash and then fussy cut them out.

I added some extra colour with Distress Ink and Black Wink of Stella and attached them using silicon to add a little depth.

The background to the card has been created by stamping and embossing the text randomly onto a piece of matching blue cardstock from my stash.

Hope you like it.

Hugs Kimx
