Herbert Hare in Watercolour

Morning and hope everyone is well--I was delighted to have been asked to be a Guest Designer for Fashionable Stamping-thank you for the invite Shirley-the challenge theme chosen by Carola is "Nature"-how easy is that so hope you can find the time to join in.I used a wooden stamp from Stampotique "Herbert Hare" coloured with watercolours and glossy accents on eyes,then doodled round the edges and added some little metal confetti hearts.The stamped sentiment is from a Holly Hobbie set.
The background was made using 3 distress inks through a Creative Expressions stencil-didn't quite get the overlapping perfect-but hey-it is handmade-so unique-right?

Vintage Adverts in a Box

Morning and I have two DT posts today-the second one is for the ATG/3-D card challenge at 613 Avenue Create-suggested by Ginny.I made a card in a box using images of old advertising posters that I have had in my stash for so long I don't even remember where they are from.I usually make my own boxes but I bought these from Craftwork Cards all ready die-cut.I added some recycled black net/made a couple of hand-made flowers and cut up a couple of straws coloured with black promarker-two little silk roses from stash-all put onto some little chipboard frames brought from The Works.
