Breathe in Inspiration.........

Papers- Bo Bunny Camp Out.
Morning peeps!

It's my Swedish House Crafts DT posting day today and I couldn't wait to share this one! 

I have really tried sitting on my hands...taping my hands with gaffa tape..... losing the keys to the craft room door.....but in the end, the temptation to make something with the stunning new Magnolia stamps Fixer Upper collection got too much for me to bear and I just had to dive into a make!!!

But really!!! look how super cute the little  Paintbrush die is!! oh my!!! To make it 3D I cut the 'brush' part out 5 times and gave them a good bend through my fingers to get them 'fluffed' out. I cut the handle part twice and then coloured it with my promarkers to get the wood and steel effect.

Then for extra fun to get that 'wet paint' look I splodged it down in the ink I was going to use for my background brush stamp and then popped it in some clear embossing powder. A little heat gun treatment later, wet paint on my brush! it really does look so sweet.

Then it was time to work on that awesome little sign Hammer Tilda is so busy making!! I stamped the green background brush first and then stamped the  Breathe text over the top of the green once it had dried a little.

Then, of course, for the gorgeous star of the card, Hammer Tilda. I stamped her in memento rich cocoa ink for a more gentle effect with the lines on her then coloured her in. I fussy cut her out and then made sure that she was positioned so her little nail in her hand was all ready to be tapped into the hole she has drilled in the sign!! he he!! so sweet!!

I carefully placed her facedown in the palm of my hand and rolled one of my promarkers along the back of her lengthways to 'curl' her back a little for a dimensional 'pop'! Then using hot glue, I adhered her to the card front so she stands out from the rest of her little scene.

Oh, the cuteness!!  Right, time to scoot!! a nice hot cuppa has my name on it!!! Have a wonderful day everyone, thank you for popping in on me, Hugs Lou xxx
