Playin with JOFY

Had a bit of a play today with some of the JOFY stamps that I got at Stamparama - I even had a play with the Paperartsy Paints that I have been collecting but  not really used.

I dont normally do things like this so was quite pleased with how they have turned out!

Slight problem with the first pics though had camera sidewise sforgetting that
got new computer which by the way has windows 8 OMG what is that all about

Gonna take me forever to learn how to use it lol.

Any-ways what I forgot was that I haven't got office installed yet and don't have any editing programmes on it so cant turn piccies round duh!

Oh well you kinda get the idea without having to hurt your neck too much I hope.

This first one is using the paints - I used five colours of the opaque paint for the background on hardboard and then used translucent to colour the flowers with.
I then coloured some hammered card with the same colours and made a little pocket to put it in.

I stamped the flower head out a few times from the coloured card scraps and painted to match the picture I layered the flowers and attached at the opening of the pocket.

Im thinkin the pocket looks a bit bare now though so may have to go back and add some thing!!!

The next two are more in my comfort zone and back to using my copics and distress inks.

 I actually ended up with the wrong JOFY set these flowers were supposed to be owls and birdhouses lol, Leandra was gonna replace for me but I decided that I quite like them so needed to keep them and get the owls next time. (which is not bad cos when I first saw these stamps sets I didnt think I liked them good job its our prerogative to change our minds lol).
