Funky Fossil Designs - January 2020 New Release - Previews Day 2

Hi there everybody and welcome back to Day 2 of the Funky Fossil Designs  January New Release Previews!!

Yesterday we showed you the new 'Quirky Owls' stamp set and today we have two more to show you. Introducing 'Blooming Birthday' and 'Serenity':

 You know I love floral stamps so immediately fell in love with this one. And I think the 'Serenity' set is so unique and fabulous for so many people who follow yoga and a more serene way of life (which I would love......).

For this card I stamped the more intricate floral design all over the card front and coloured lightly with Altenew Artist Markers. I then stamped the large image on white CS (also with Gina K Amalgam Black ink), coloured with the same markers and then die-cut with a circle die from Couture Creations. I popped it up on white foam, as well as the heat embossed sentiment from the same set. And finished off with gold Neat and Tangled sequins.

For this card I was desperate to use the 'yoga pose' image as the 'star' of my card. I spent ages colouring in the Funky Fossil 'Moroccan Mandala' stencil on the square card front. I used Distress Oxide inks and because I don't have sponge daubers, I pinch the round foam blending pads into a point and use those. My fingers were filthy but I just love the effect. 

I stamped the image several times on top using Versafine Onyx ink and then clear heat embossed with Simon Says Stamp Clear Powder.  The sentiment (from the same set) was white heat embossed on black CS, backed with white CS and glued in place, along with more Neat and Tangled gold sequins.

Don't forget to check out the Funky Fossil Blog to see what the rest of the Design Team have created with this sets (they are one talented group of ladies!!!!) and the stamps will be available to purchase this coming Saturday. I'll see you back here tomorrow with another stamp preview!!

Take care
