Last week at Ally Pally, Leandra had some new stamps designed by Ellen Vargo which although we were allowed to buy, we had to promise not to show until they'd been officially launched. Well, when I was out at Kew today (see pics here!) I saw a tweet that said they were launched.. so I had a play tonight, in my A5 journal.
I did take a close up but even though it's rotated the right way round in my folder, when I upload it, it turns round...
I used Guacamole on the page first, then added some stencilled little circles in Hint of Mint, but they didn't show up well, so painted a thin layer of Sage over the whole page, then added some more stencilled circles, before stamping the flowers from the new stamp set (there is a third one, a tulip, too) and coloured them with translucent Frescos - Zesty Zing, Yellow Submarine,Tango and Cherry Red. I stamped the coneflower on tissue and coloured it with the same paints, then cut it out - just the petals - and glued the top only, over the image on the journal page. The grasses at the foot are from JoFY25 and at the top, from ELB10 . The sentiment is from the new Ellen Vargo set.
So pleased to have been able to share these flowers with you!
