Design team makes...using Hobby Art
Hello everyone....Genny here. What a week so far. I had meant to blog on Monday but with the weather and the joys of BT..it just didn't happen. I hope that the weather is being kind to you, wherever you are. We have had serious flooding in the village here..it was unbelievable. I have lived here for 25 years and have never seen it as bad as it was. People had to leave their cars on high ground and wade through water that was above their knees. There are waterfalls cascading down the mountains..where there was none last week. I was lucky because I'm situated at the top of the village. So with all the rain..which is still continuing today..I'm keeping warm and staying in to craft.
My first make is a new home card. It was created using the Hobby Art Townhouse scenic stamp range. I created a little row of cottages and a little garden scene. For the next card, I extended the scene and used it to make a christmas card. I stamped the houses,coloured them and added them to an oval. I also stamped the christmas tree and snowman. I coloured the top half of the oval to look like sky and stamped the santa and reindeer on to it.
And as I had a spare circle..I just had to make a sheep card..lol. The stamp of the sheep is a Penny Black one. I do have a collection of sheep stamps because living where I do..I'm always surrounded by them. And they always make me smile. For this one I stamped and coloured my sheep and then cut it out. I coloured the sky and added the sheep. I then added some snow..using white acrylic and of course I had to add some glitter. All the colouring was done using my promarkers, I added snow using white acrylic and the glitter was diamond dust..but any white or crystal glitter would do.
The great thing about making cards using these stamps is that it quite easy to batch make and you can add as much or as little detail as you want to. So until next week..and I hope that the weather is kind to you all...take care and happy crafting.
