As promised a sneeky peek of the Beatrix Potter Launch-Crafters Companion,IdealWorld/Create & Craft

Here is the first look at some of my Beatrix Potter Samples for next weeks launch!
Make sure you check out Ideal World/Create & Craft Tuesday 9pm for the launch and throughout the day on Wednesday 17th til 9pm


This is a large 8x8 card, I printed a backing paper from the 4cd set onto vellum, then I used a stamp from the Peter Rabbit set of Stamps and watercoloured the exact colours with Derwent Watercolour pencils,there is an attached colour sheet to help you get the right stamp set.
To attached the vellum I sprayed with Stick and Stay,available also from Crafters Companion, to invisibly stick the vellum to the card.




This is an Easel Card,using the backing paper from the 4 cd set, the little Robin is from the Peter Rabbit Stamps set, I quilled the BlueBell using the idea from, my dear friend, Janet Wilson's book Quilled Wild Flowers, by Search press.


I think the quilling lends itself perfectly to the original art work of Beatrix Potter!
I appologise for the 'off' colours in the photo's, as my daylight bulb has blown!!
