Release Day again :-)

A warm welcome to all who call by!! I do appreciate your visits.

This week at McMahon Five Design  there are six new releases in the digital range of stamps, and I am showcasing two of them.

Firstly there it the image named The Rose from the

This is a wonderful image and I enjoyed working with it - I coloured it with chalks, and distressed the edges and sponged them with Tea Stain distress ink.

This was mounted on a thin piece of design paper that had skeletal leaves printed in gold on it, then mounted on kraft cardstock.

For a slightly more aged look, I rolled two of the corners and painted the back with Pearlescent gold ink, and also added a layer of the ink over the distress ink on the edges, which gave a wonderful depth to the distressed edges.

The narrow pink ribbon was gathered by hand and caught under the edges of the d/p, and a wee rose (part of a RAK) was added in the corner.

And for those of you who wish to peruse the poem by Edmund Waller, here is a photo of it.

Also from  McMahon Vintage Digital comes the nursery rhyme image
Little Miss Muffet  

I used chalks  and a blender pen to colour Miss Muffet and her (unwelcome) companion.  After colouring them I added the "cobweb" to the image before mounting it on some deep crimson card stock.

This was mounted on pink card stock (sponged with Rouge chalk ink) with a layer of florists mesh between - this has a gold thread in it that gives a lovely sparkle.

I added the half vintage corner after painting it with Oyster Twinkling H2O - the clear 'cobweb' is a Christmas decoration I bought from a local florist/gift shop last year.

The final detail was this braid - 

that was made with a narrow piece of white ric-rak, rubbed over the Rouge chalk ink pad and then wound with the 'cobweb'.

Please visit the other team members (links to their blogs are on my sidebar) to view their wonderful creations and the other releases.

Thanks for calling by - may your day be blessed.
