Dreamy Dove

I bought a lovely set of clear stamps from Imagination Crafts.  This was called Leaf Swirl.  I really liked the leaves and the circles.  I never really have a clear idea of what I'm going to do when I'm making my cards.  I started off masking off some of the white card and sponging on some inks from a Kaleidacolour inkpad 'Birthstone' onto the background.

Sometimes when you're using clear stamps and it is a solid stamp like the dove .... well I find that the ink doesn't always cling to the stamp and you get a patchy impression.  So I go over it with a black pen but unfortunately it can look patchy.  Never mind it can look patchy .... dammit it does look patchy 'sigh'!

The sentiment at the bottom is from Hero Arts, I was going to use black ink but thought it would look good to make it match the colours in the card.  I used some gems on some circles and on either side of the sentiment for some extra pizazz.

Tomorrow I'm going for a day out with Andy and we are going to go to Teignmouth which is in the English County of Devon.  So I won't be blogging tomorrow.  I'll be taking lots of photos to show on my blog later on in the week though so check back soon :).  Apparently it's going to be dry and there is going to be sun ..... apparently!!!!

Thanks for stopping by ...
