A Bloom of One’s Own (The Stampers’ Sampler)

Hello Everyone
I have some catching-up to do with items I’d planned on sharing long before now, such as the panels in this post which feature in the Jan/Feb/Mar issue of The Stampers’ Sampler.
At the time of creating the panels, JOFY stamps were still quite new to me. It was all because of this post, HERE at That’s Crafty that I continued to make some more.
Here are the other three panels.oneTouches of H20s catch the light beautifully and here and there, touches of mica flakes.  If I remember, I think I also used Golden medium which has beautiful gold mica flakes within it.twoCoils of rusty wire appear here and there on each panel.threeThis is one of my all time favourite labels from Redlead Paperworks, layered onto some rusty mesh which is also from Redlead.four
Grow A GardenoneAgain, on this panel, the JOFY stamps were highlighted with the H20s, working with limited colours (even though I have quite a stash of H20s!)twoI took no care with how I applied the H20s, working loosely.threeMorning DewoneThe backgrounds have little or no texture other than paint.  I might have added a touch of Grungepaste but on the whole, the texture on the background is purely Frescos.twoAnother label from yet another favourite Redlead labels set. I dip into their Label sets so often, they are such a lovely sized stamp to add a little sentiment to artwork.  fourI am thankful that Stampington & Co liked the panels enough to publish them. There are so many incredible stamp artists, vying for space within the pages of The Stampers’ Sampler, so it is always an honour to be published.
Many thanks for your visit to this post.

    These stamps are so eyecatching; even in such natural colours! Love the way you used them here; something to keep in mind when I reach for the vibrant colours again:) Enjoy the day!

    I loved the first one at TC and it’s wonderful to see the companion panels here – brilliant, brilliant work with the JOFY flowers, and with such a nostalgic vintage sunshine warmth.

    I love all three panels, maybe I have just a little preference for the two first ones… But they are all remarkable, so well worth their publication!!! Fabulous work with the JOFY stamps Lynne, you do wonderful art for PaperArtsy since the beginning of their invitation to join the team, really.
    Hugs again xxx
