Inspired by Ellen - Paperartsy

Hi,

This week over on the Paperartsy blog, Ellen has been giving inspiration using her own stamps. Unfortunatley I have not yet received the sets that I have ordered (should be Thursday), so I have had to improvise.

I started by creating a background using the new JoFY paints and the brayer techinque that Ellen used.

I then cut into four pieces. I liked this way of making backgrounds and can see myself using this again and again.

For the first two cards I used two different Lin Brown stamps. One 
 directly on to the background and the other onto blackcard using the die that goes with the stamp. I have only put the sentiment on one card as I am still deciding on what to use the other on for.



 The other two backgrounds I have used the new stencils over the top one a Lin Brown & the other a JoFY. One I have left at this stage as I am not sure what to do with it. The other I have used a new JoFY stamp set to stamp ou some flowers.



Really enjoyed making these, and can't wait to get my Ellen stamps to have another go.

I have entered this project into Country view crafts Feb challenge which you can see here.

Thanks for looking
