Jardindes Des Delices

I recieved a lovely parcel today, (Still waiting for some to arrive) with some "Little treat for me" stuff!
Part of my parcel was some stamps that I haven't seen before that I found, they are from the French company Carabella Studio and I have made this card using one of the 4 I ordered, this one is called
"Jardindes Des Delices"
I've gone with a lot of white space on this one (yes you are on the right blog!)
The colour is from one of my previously made gelli prints, the paint has a real shimmer to it which the photo doesn't capture. I stamped once onto the gellli printusing versamark and ultra fine black embossing power and then again onto white cardstock using archival ink. Then using a variety of circle punches punched out sections of the gelli image and laid it over the back and white stamp. Highlights have been added using a white gel pen.
The sentiment is from Tim Holtz.

I will be back soon hopefully with what I have made using the other 3 stamps.
Thanks for visiting

  8. That is a very, very gorgeous stamp and I love how you've used it!

  9. Just brilliant! A really cool stamp, but how you've double-stamped to get the bubbles of colour floating within the image is just amazing - love it! Can't wait to see the others in action...

  12. This is just gorgeous, Amanda! I love the framing in black of more than just your art! And, of course, I love how your gelli circles overhang the edges of your focal frame! Very artistic style!
