Sneak Peek

Hi Bloggers.

As promised, today I have a sneak peek from tomorrow's One Day Special on Hochanda where I'm launching CS Chalk Clouds and some of Francoise Read's April Release Woodware Stamps.

Here's today's card -

On this card I've use Toasted Rose CS Chalk Cloud for all of the colour and I've used only Coconut White Card.

I started with my background. I inked all over a piece of Coconut White Card with Toasted Rose Chalk Cloud using a Smoothie.. I placed the Celtic Vine Mask on top and then spritzed with water. I removed the mask - the water bleached the mask design out for me - lovely! I matted onto Coconut White Card, then another piece that I had edged with my Chalk Cloud and then another piece of Coconut White.

I cut  a die from Sue Wilson's Double Pierced Squares out of Coconut White Card and inked through the die with my Chalk Cloud. I stamped the image from the Woodware Eyes Stamp Set and the sentiments from the Woodware Vintage Inspiration Stamp Set with the Toasted Rose Chalk Cloud. The detail you get when stamping with Chalk Clouds is absolutely amazing!

I created another background in the same way as I did the one for my card. Once dry, I cut some flowers using Sue's Succulent Garden Die Set. I added centres using Sue's Sweet Williams Die Set and a 3mm White Pearl. I cut a pair of leaves from Sue's Whimsical Leaves Die Set and just inked the very tips of each leaf.

I completed my card by adding a 5mm White Pearl to each corner of my background.

Thanks for stopping by.
