YAY! It's release day at Funky Fossil and you can start shopping and making your wish list come true!
And here's some cards to showcase them:
– Find Your Rainbow, Furry Friends
Well how about that I went off piste and created a much more complex design than usual, bet you think it still looks CAS though! I used three stencils - Rainfall
, Feeling Gritty
& Banners & Bunting
and three stamp sets - Find Your Rainbow, Small Print from this release & Furry Friends
from May's release.
Papermill Direct, black, super smooth white
Memento, tuxedo black; Ranger distress oxide, picked raspberry,
spiced marmalade, fossilized amber, ripe persimon, squeezed lemonade,
twisted citron, worn lipstick, scattered straw, spun sugar
MFT Die-namics, stitched jumbo fishtail banner
Copic, YR15, Y35, RV04
After the shock of that card I've reverted to type and gone with my current favourite technique of a stencilled background with a stamped image on top!
I used the beautiful butterfly from the Geo Bugs stamps set and the Watercolour Lines
stencil in yellow behind it.
– Geo Bugs
Versafine Clair, nocturne; Ranger distress, mustard seed
My next card uses one of the She Is Fierce faces combined with the Fierce
stencil - a match made in heaven!
I chose the colours - well you know why - and had so much fun dying her hair just how I'd like to have mine.
– She Is Fierce
Inks: Memento, tuxedo black; Ranger distress, picked raspberry, wilted
MFT Die-namics, double stitched circle stax
Copic, E0000, E000, E00, YG13, RV09, V17
My final card today uses much more subtle and peaceful colours and is quite calming to look at.
I used three stencils - Scenic Borders
for the sand, In the Clouds
for the sky and Arched Window
to contain it all. I stamped some shells from Starfish Wishes directly onto the stencilling and also onto card to colour and hand cut for the embellishment cluster at the bottom of the window. The sentiment is from Small Print.
– Starfish Wishes, Small Print
Memento, tuxedo black peanut brittle, London fog, summer sky; Ranger
distress, mustard seed
Copic, RV00, RV02, E21, E23, E25, E31, E33, E35, E44, E47, E49, E51,
E55, E57, E59, BV000, BV01

Remember to set your alarms for the Hochanda show at 3.00pm to see Sarah demonstrating using the new release stamps. It's the first time she's actually been able to go down to the studio because of you know what, so let's give her some love and support and cheer her on.
Thanks so much for your time today. I really appreciate you taking a look at my blog.
Stay safe and keep crafting!
