I've been provided with the gorgeous Hero Arts background stamp and am unable to name it, it is so pretty and is like a star or snowflake. I stamped it with ColorBox Frost White Ink and use Hero Arts Embossing Powder. I then use Cotman Water Colours. The Sentiment is by Hero Arts Chalkboards Stye stamped on Neenah Kraftcardstock and head embossed - I love the distressed finish!!


 

This one are used the same stamp but I waterxoloured background first and then stamped it later.  This time I hadded the snowflakes along with Simon Says Stamp Merry Christmas Die

Di's BIO:  {I have been drawing since a child and studied graphics at College many years ago, I now work as a Medical photographer part time but my love was always drawing. I started cardmaking about 4yrs ago when I bought my daughter a cardmaking kit which we did together, but I’m afraid I got the bug! My daughter preferred scrapbooking. I then started looking online at other blogs and this then became my passion and I loved sharing my cards with like-minded people.  I love stamping and loved finding images, but sometimes I could not find what I wanted so I started to draw myself. This then has become my second addiction and I have never looked back, I love thinking of new images, and its just fabulous to see others take them and make them into beautiful works of art. Long may it continue! }

I've use Simon Says Stamp Cardstock with  Three Shades of GrayLavenderGreen Apple  & Black. The adorable image is from Tiddly Inks - Bewitching and I have coloured her with Copics and the bats are from Lawn Fawn Happy Haunting. The spider and webs are I Clear Mini Stamps - not available anymore. I did want to use all of the Color cooredinates including  Orange Peel but it didn't sort of fit in and I overcame this by colouring the image with strong orange hair. I found a little wooden bat, and coloured that with an orange colour, embossed it - not successful it just looks a little dirty.
I added the Lawn Fawn Happy Haunting sentimen along the 'grass'
