With all your Heart for Leonie

Good evening lovely peeps.

Leonie is launching her new stamps this evening on Hochanda TV and they are all gorgeous. I anticipate another sell-out (possibly before the end of the first hour). 


This is my favourite card out of all the ones I made and I was chuffed to bits to find out that it features on the packaging. How fab is that? What a huge honour.


So, here's a little bit about how I made it.  All the stamps I've used are in the Flight to Freedom set.

I wanted a colourful inky background so I dug out my mini Distress Inks (spiced marmalade, mustard seed, worn lipstick) and some glossy card.
To start off I stamped the smallest butterfly all over my card with Versamark ink. I then dabbed my 3 ink pads randomly around my craft mat, spritzed them with water and dragged the card through it to transfer the colour.


Hmm, OK but a teensy bit abstract and I don't like the way the colour has pooled.
So I grabbed a fresh piece of glossy card, spritzed some more water onto my mat and dragged the card through (no butterflies this time)

Much happier with the second one, so I stamped a few hearts along the bottom with worn lipstick and then stamped the sentiment on using Timber Brown Stazon


Next I stamped some butterflies onto super smooth 120gsm paper with Cocoa Memento ink and cut them out.


I've mounted the card panel onto dark brown paper and then onto a 7x7 card and (after 30 minutes arranging and re-arranging, lol) I glued the butterflies on top.
