Purple Rain!

Hello my crafting friends, I do apologize for being absent for sooooo long, even I did not think it would be this long, please forgive me lol!

I hope you are all safe and well? I just do not know where the time goes but its come round again for some new stamps from our lovely Sheena, if you like Rock 'n' Roll you're gonna love these!

Over the next few days I will be showcasing the cards I have made for Sheenas shows on Hochanda on Friday 27th May at 10 am in the morning then again at 2pm, followed by Saturday at 11am & 3pm then finally on Sunday at 11am & 6pm.

My first card I want to show you is one I did in remembrance and respect for the Artist Prince, his song Purple Rain is one of my all time favourites so of course I had to stick to the colour Purple A LOT! I made a Gatefold card out of Sheena's White Stamping Card and covered the front with card that I had coloured with AquaTints Pastels and ran through Crafters Companion Textures Embossing Folder Rain (well what else did you expect lol!) I matted this onto some Creatives Expressions Plum Card then stamped over the top with Sheena's new stamp set of Sheena's Sketchy Stamps Grunge band patterns using Tim Holtz Seedless Preserve Distress Ink.

I stamped and heat embossed the guitar from Sheena's Sketchy Stamps Rock n Roll twice and coloured them in with Spectrum Noir AquaBlend Pencils. I placed these on the front of the card as seen.

For the inside I lined it all with more of the Plum card and in the center I matted it up with more of the coloured 'Rain' card. 

On more of the stamping card I stamped and heat embossed the Rose stamp from Sheena's Sketchy Stamp Every Rose along with one of the sentiments and coloured this in with Spectrum Noir AquaBlend Pencils, these are so lovely to colour with as they are water colour pencils so once you have coloured in just wash over with a damp paintbrush and the colours blend beautifully. Once dry I die cut it out with X Cut Large Dies, I placed this in the center of the middle of the card.

For the inside of the gatefolds I stamped one of the distress floral stamp in each corner using Tim Holtz Distress Ink Picket Fence and also the stars. Using a White Gel Pen I wrote some of the words from Prince's songs, a different one on each corner, here showing are the words to Purple Rain. The other songs were 'When Doves Cry', Diamonds & Pearls and Kiss.

I do hope you manage to view at least one of the shows not only to watch Sheena's wonderful demos but also to view the other Design Team members stunning creations.

Thank you for looking, Jacquie xxx
