Ching-Chou Kuik's Digital Stamps Monthly Challenge Blog - Kym's Inspiration Post - Friday 25 March 2016

Here is my weekly inspiration post for the Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamps Monthly Challenge Blog.  The week the Design Team have been given the topic of "anything goes".

Before I do I'd like to remind you that our challenge this month is "Easter/Spring colours".
Here is another Pocket Letter I have made with a bright and cheery Spring-like feel.  If you haven't seen these before pop on over to Janette Lane's Blog for more information - looking there is at your own risk as the making of Pocket Letters is rather addictive!!!!

For my Pocket Letter I have used three images:  Hello Magnolia, Meet Dragonfly and Sweet and Fragrant.  I have coloured the images in with Spectrum Noir pens and inked around the edge with Tim Holtz's Stormy Sky distress ink.

For the background of the pocket letters I have used scraps of paper and tore and did like paper mache onto a piece of card.  I then had some yellow acrylic paint and painted over the top.  I used various stamps to add some feeling of texture.  Some of the pieces I have used a stencil and Dutch Doobadoo texture paste through and inked over the top.

I stamped some butterflies onto acetate and heat embossed with white embossing power.  I have finished these pocket letters off with gem flowers, Nuvo crystal pearls. die-cut flowers, die-cut dragonflies/butterflies, die-cut leaves coloured with chalks, stamped various sentiments and I have used some Stampboard and coloured with paint, stamped and scratched on it for texture.

Behind the Pocket Letter is lots of little goodies for the recipient!!
