A single winter flower

Good has been so very chilly for the last new days...on Thursday night the temperature went down to -6c which for the south of England is very chilly. However we have still had lots of glorious sunshine in my garden and during my local walks.

It is time for me to share another first first Design Team share for Visible Image using their brand new awesome mixed media stamps. These are so on trend and every single on of the 6 sets in the release have so much to offer our creativity.

This is the set I have worked with for my Monday make today. It is just brilliant.

It's called Creative Chaos and is for sale as a pre order on the website here ready for it's release this Friday, 4th February.
All the sunshine made me reach for my sunny palette. 
 The sun was streaming in on the day I made it I was so inspired to use happy yellow and orange  distress inks, despite the frost on the ground.

I also got out my much used Tale of 2 cities and used some pages to stamp the larger flower onto.

I fussy cut out one of the image. I also stamped the image onto the card front and added some edging using the fab DNA stamp.

This is my finished card.

with a close up of the gorgeous flower stamp.
These are the distress inks I worked with.
When I design my cards I often work on a sample first which I use to test out placement etc...most are kept for a reference and not mounted up. However when I was making my flower card I actually rather liked the sample version too so I thought that I would also share it to show how well these stamps work in any colourway.

I am working on the butterfly set at the moment and will hopefully have some samples to share very soon.

This is the link to all the new February release stamps and stencils. Do check them out, they are totally amazing and will feed your creativity. I have so many ideas for every single one of them.
