Country house sample cards

..More to come in January. These were launched yesterday on C&C on the Dawn Bibby show. Here are the cards I made in more detail.
This card was shown like this by Dawn
..but it is an easel card.....
..with a drop down draw bridge where I've added a little notebook and greeting

I stamped the brick stamp with purple ink onto velvet paper for the castle adding little glittered rectangles for the windows, I inked with Tim holtz seedless preserves ink for most of the colouring and stamping. The drawbridge wood is an embossing folder.

I used Thomas Kinkade backing paper to stamp the gates and for the background, so the gates blended in. The stone stamps are used to create the border around the card. Inside is one of Joanna Sheens wordy stamps
I stamped the stone doorway first and made a door to fit it, scoring with a scoreboard and adding extra texture freehand with the scoring tool. I stamped the urns and inked them a little bit to add dimension and filled them both with punched flowers and leaves. The brick wall is the brick stamped with distress ink and a water brush to colour lightly.
Stamped and gold embossed flower and coloured with promarker pens and layered. The leaves are from the JS Pressed flower rubber stamps
Thanks for looking
