Summer 2016 #3UP {Jofy}

Hi Everyone, Leandra here (slightly earlier than usual, we have 2 posts this evening) and this post is a stunning JoFY inspired #3UP! 

A feminine floral stamp collection such as Jofy, used with inks this evening is probably a very appropriate way to celebrate our first day of England's second ever Prime Minister, and wow has she been bold in her first day of office, shaking up the establishment today with much hiring and firing!

So let's see what bold blooms our lovely blog followers have to offer.

First up this evening we have Julie Bell.

Hi it’s Jules, I love crafting as there’s so many different thing to do, my favourites are stamping, drawing faces and art journaling. I love the #3UP challenge, as so many people get involved and its such fun to see what people create.

I love JOFY stamps, and the fact that they all blend together so well, every single set. We were given several sets of stamps and this photo shows the way they combine perfectly. I heat embossed the little bees with gold, and the same on the greeting.

I used a blend of Dylusions and Lindy’s stamp gang stamps to create a blend and overlap of colours with some shimmer so I could choose the best part to stamp over, this also meant that the black Archival ink was nice and crisp on top.

To finish I used some Classic Treasure Gold, to dust around the sides. I wanted to try and get a good colourful project in 3D and with a bit of a vintage feel and I am very happy with the result.

Next up we have Clare Messenger. 

Hi, I'm Clare. I live with hubby and my two children in the English Riviera. I absolutely adore creating with stamps, inks, paints & stencils! 

JoFy stamps are always a joy to work with! These fabby stamps lend themselves to so many different projects, from card making to mixed media, the possibilities are endless.

I stamped the dandelion head and heat embossed some holographic embossing powder over the dandy heads. Through a Jofy stencil PS007, I pulled through some grunge paste. This added more layers and created more depth to the picture.

This is my favourite part of the picture. I love the mixed, double layers of the fluttering dragonfly, he looks as though he might fly right of the canvas! All that's left to do is find somewhere to display my bloomin beautiful blooms.

Finally this evening we have Linda Fitzsimmons. 

I've always loved crafting from an early age and work with most mediums, stamps and dies. Recently I have favoured water colouring with Distress Inks and playing with Fresco paints.

This is an 8 1/2" square of watercolour card backed with black card, the images were coloured with Distress inks and a waterbrush.

My technique was decoupage, I cut several of the blooms and layered them to create height and texture. These were attached with gel medium as it dries clear. 

I love Jo's hive and bees. the bees were cut out and added with glue gel for height, the wings were coated with glitter.
