Funky Fossil January Pre-Release Peeks - Adventure

Day Three of the Funky Fossil January Release previews. And this set of stamps is so different from anything I've ever seen and I'm totally smitten!

No photo description available.

I've made a trio of cards using this set, but I know it will be fabulous for scrapbook pages and art journal pages too.

I created a background using distress inks keeping the yellow to the middle as a sort of sunrise/sunset and flicked water onto it for added interest. Then I simply stamped the tree line on top using just half of the stamp. The birds and sentiment quote are also included with this set.

I matted it onto black card and then onto a mirri rainbow holographic card from Papermill Direct.

Stamps: Funky Fossil, Adventure
Inks: Versafine Clair, nocturne; Ranger distress, wilted violet, blueprint sketch, mustard seed, chipped sapphire
Card: Papermill Direct, mirri rainbow holographic

This stamps set is so artsy that I went a bit that way with my next card. I stamped the mountain/tree image three times across the top and three times across the bottom to create my background. I started each stamping in the middle and then added the half stamp to either side. I also added in one of the small bird silhouettes to the top row.

Next I stamped the quote and die cut it and matted it onto rainbow holographic card. This was popped up onto a piece of funky foam before adhering to the background panel. The whole card was doubled matted, first onto a holographic layer and then onto a black card base.

Stamps: Funky Fossil, Adventure
Inks: Versafine Clair, nocturne
Die: MFT Die-namics, double stitched rectangles
Card: Papermill Direct, mirri rainbow holographic

My final card to share today used some bright oranges and yellows - colours quite out of my comfort zone, but so right for these images. I was aiming for a sunrise/sunset vibe when I prepared this brusho background.

I used the Funky Fossil Flying High stencil and black soot distress ink to create the bird border at the top and then stamped the tree and river triangle and quote at the bottom using Versafine Clair ink.

Stamps: Funky Fossil, Adventure
Inks: Versafine Clair, nocturne; Brusho, brilliant red, orange, yellow; Ranger distrs, black soot

One more day of previews left and then you'll be able to make your purchase. Do you have a favourite yet? Well hold on to that thought because tomorrow's stamps may just make you dither, especially if you're into cross stitching!

Thanks so much for your time today and be sure to come back again tomorrow.

And in the meantime keep crafting!
