Blog Hop Victoria Case

Welcome to the March stamp release from Susana's Custom Art And Card Design.

The Quixotic Paperie design team and myself as special guest have the honour to join up with the SCACD design team for this blog hop to celebrate the release of some fantastic new stamps from artist Victoria Case. This time Victoria has illustrated some stunning ladies - The Bonitas and some super fun Retro Girls!

If you have hopped on over here from Iris' blog then you are on the right track, if not then the first blog on the hop you need to go to is Crafts By Kim.

For my make I have used Flora Bonita

I have used paper from the Spiceberry paper pad by Memory Box and distressed the edges with walnut stain distress ink.

I have coloured Flora Bonita with copics and inked around the edges with Antique Linen distress ink.

I used Magnolia Doohickey dies to cut out the dragonflies from white card which I then painted with rock candy crackle paint before inking with walnut stain distress ink.

The gold embossed corner stamp is also from the new Victoria Case release - isn't it gorgeous!? I created a ruffled frame around part of the ribbon with some scrap organza ribbon from my stash.

I created the tree branch from grungepaper using Tim Holtz spooky tree die. I inked it with the vintage photo distress ink dabber and the edges with walnut stain distress ink. The flowers were cut from an old book with Tim Holtz tattered florals die with some gems from my stash for the centres.

Elaine stocks the Grungepaper and Spiceberry paper pad by Memory Box that I have used on my card.

For those of you in the UK and EU you can get this and the other

lovely Victoria Case stamps from Quixotic Paperie. For those of you in Canada and USA check out Susana's Custom Art And Card Design!

Enjoy the hop!
