Stamping around!

I have been playing around with some stamp sets by Leoni Pujol.  I have used some fusible fibres on some of these.  Leoni released these new stamps on the Hochanda Show recently.  It has become my favourite TV craft show for inspiration.  

The first card I made was very simple to do. In fact it took me longer to delve into the back of my cupboard to find my fusible fibres and craft iron!  I simply ironed the fusible fibres between a heat resistant craft mat to fuse the fibres together.  I then used Leoni's heart stamp as a guide to cut around as I liked its quirky shape.  

On this next card I joined several of these hearts together to form petals of a  a flower.

I used a technique new to me on this card's background below.  I applied ink to the stamp and then misted it before stamping.  I then re-stamped the card over the top of it once it was dry.  I then stamped and coloured some butterflies and stuck these one.

This time I use white embossing powder and stamped the card before applying my aqua paints.  I really love this effect.

On this last card it was this stamp set that I fell in love with.  I just loved the image of the young girl and the idea of making the wings look real with fusible fibre as demonstrated by Leoni on the Hochanda Show.  I had been playing with my aqua tint inks and had some cardstock left over which had fleshy colours so I was able to use this card to make the flesh look life like.
