Dark and bright

Well yesterday I purchased some £1 hobbycraft stamps and I loved them so much that I went back today and got lots more :-)
I was worried that only being £1 they wouldn't be that great but they are amazing!!!

Right, onto my makes.....

My first card was for the craftymess Facebook groups daily challenge 'vintage'. I am happy to say that I won :-) :-)
I used a topped that the wonderful Sandra Wright sent me. I contrasted the black with Kraft card and toned the white and brown down with vintage photo distress ink.

The flowers were made by a new die that I ordered from eBay.

The second make was made with one of my new stamps 'camper van'. I stamped four and then coloured them with distress ink and painted some of the details with mica powder. Matted it on embossed card, black Matt card and white cars.
I matched card candi to the distress ink colours and for some fun I stuck matching coloured gems in the smaller headlights on the camper vans.

I went from a dark coloured card to a bright coloured card. I have to say that I love them both!!!

I had to put a pic up of some of my new stamps :-) needless to say, I will be returning for more lol

Thanks for reading and looking xxxx

Those new stamps look like great value, unfortunately I don't have a Hobby Craft near me - or myabe that's a good thing!!
