Sample cards from todays show...

Jo Channon was on todays shows on Create and craft.  One of the products she lauched was the lovely Mandala stamps from Joanna Sheen 

I was asked to make cards for two of the sheets.. here they are..
The first three are from the Madras Magic sheet

Stanmped with white embossing powder, inked with distress inks, decopaged with added sequins. Rose was stamped and embossed with white and inked and then rolled.

 Stamped onto vellum and embossed with white powder then coloured on back with promarker pens.. Flower made up of 12 individual leaves and centre of mandala.

 I was inspired by a tutorial I found on the web when I created this card. I used the little birdy motif from the stamp sheet to decorate my tiles. To find out how I created the faux Delph tile - click here  The Jug is my own shape stamped and embossed and inked. The Daffodils are from Joanna Sheen's pressed flower stamps..

...and these are from the Balti Night sheet.....

 Still inspired by the card above I decided to create more tiles onto coated card - inking them and stamping the mandala and embossing with copper powder.

 Inking the stamp with different colours creates the multi colour background. The bright orange strip paper is from DCWV.

 I drew a rough shape of an elephent to cut around and then added the decorated pieces that I stamped, embossed and coloured and added a few gems. I used a versamark pen and gilded Ivory embossing powder to add the extra sparkly bits around the feet, head and near the tail. If you like this card and would like to have a go at decorating your own elephent here is the elephant template for you to use.

Thanks for visiting... there will be more samples to come over the weekend from some  stamps I designed for Joanna this space!!...
