Winnie & Walter October Release Guest Star


I'm thrilled to be taking part in Winnie & Walter's October Release for the next four days.  Along with fabulous new stamps, Winnie & Walter have brought out a fabulous new product, Creative Screenings, and I get to play with them.  Yay!!

My first card uses Scenery: V for CheVron Creative Screenings, which coordinates with the Scenery: V for CheVron stamp set.

I sponged Tumbled Glass, Dusty Concord, Seedless Preserves and Chipped Sapphire through the various cheVrons, adding black fineliner to the larger cheVron pattern, then stamped the sentiment from The Big, The Bold and The Happy in Versafine Onyx Black.  Using black acrylic paint, I made some marks with a bottle top.  Oh, and I added some splatters (of course!).



This second card uses Scenery: Persuasion Script Creative Screenings, and Duo: The Big, The bold and Extras.  With Duo Creative Screenings you get the negative image, as in a stencil, and also a positive outline image which can sit inside the negative, which enables you to create dimension and layers.

On spare card I stencilled the rose then placed the positive outline image in the stencil and sponged darker colours to get depth, also adding some shading with coloured pencils. I masked the rose image then stencilled the leaves using both parts of the stencil, then fussy cut the whole thing.  The background panel was made using the Scenery: Persuasion Script Creative Screenings.  The sentiment is from The Big, The Bold and The Happy.

I also get to play with some of the new stamps too.


The fireplace is made using Scenery: Rectangled Creative Screenings and Distress Inks.  I cut out the centre section and on a separate piece of black card I stamped the sentiment from Eat Drink Gingerbread Man in Versamark and white-embossed it and added it behind the fireplace.  I stamped the gingerbread men on kraft card in Versamark and white-embossed them, fussy cut them, then joined them together with mini brads (I knew they'd come into their own again one day!).

Pop on over to Winnie & Walter's blog to see fabulous inspiration from Julie, Shay and The Talent and Guest Stars, and pop back tomorrow for more creative goodness.
