Alice Palace at Crafty Individuals

Some more Alice Palace stamp cards from me today and these are new ones just released at the Crafty Individuals on-line store.

I love experimenting with the distress inks and images that are so far out of my comfort zone and these are all made with wrinkle free distress backgrounds.

I used a mixture of distress markers and Inktense watercolour pencils to colour the images in.

To finish I simply distressed the edges and mounted on some backing papers and onto white cards. no embellishments, I am going to let the images speak for themselves.

I love the bright colours  so different for me and they remind me of Spring coming, especially the Live, Lovely Life card.

Do pop over to the CI Blog to see lots of inspiration from the team using the whole range of CI stamps.

Thanks for visiting.

Delicious cards, Brenda... the backgrounds are gorgeous, and the stamps look brilliant against them - and your tinting of them is just fantastic! I love the Love lovely Life one especially - so delicious. I know when I first saw these stamps I thought they weren't for me, but I love them whenever I see them - oh no, more for the wishlist - gorgeous work!
