Wild Nature

Hello faithful followers and crafters, Time for our March

You can choose to follow either the theme or the sketch, and of course both, for the chance to win a prize! If you'd like to be considered for the prizes, please make sure you're linking back to the challenge post and displaying the challenge graphic.

I followed the theme and created a wild meadow with the Healing Herbs stamp set.

First I stamped and embossed one of the stems with green embossing powder.

Then I embossed in yellow the next image by mixing the 2 powders directly on the stamped  Versamark.

Next, since I didn't have a light green EP, I used Distress Oxides to stamp and embossed in WOW Skinny Chai Latte. The last sprigs are stamped and embossed in vanilla white (they will show up in the next step).

With all the embossing done and my grasses effectively protected, I sprinkled some Brushos powders on the background and sprayed water lightly until I was happy with the look. (I was aiming for sky and field colours).

I used the Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle die set to cut the card and matted it on a blue card base.

I liked it as it was so I added the smallest piece of cardstock for my sentiment from the Fond Expressions 2 set, stamped and embossed on vellum.

  3. Wow, what a stunning meadow! I love the delicate colours of the sky and the pretty meadow of grasses and herbs looks amazing 😁. Wishing you a wonderful week! Happy March! Hugs, Jo x

  4. Loving this Christine, definitely has an air of mystery around the clouds. Wishing you a happy creative week, Angela xXx

  5. Oh dear, I've been absent so long, but you can probably guess how happy I am to come back to this beautiful, atmospheric meadow. The looming clouds full of rain to come, and the soft feathering of the grasses drifting off towards the horizon, and the clarity and detail of the embossed stems in the foreground - it all works to perfection. Gorgeous!
