I've made this card using the squirrel from the new "hedgehugs" stamp set and the trees from the Funky Fossil "Woodland Wishes" stamp set paired with the new Funky Fossil "Hello" die.

Today, I have had a play with the new Funky Fossil Designs stamp set called "Hedgehugs" designed by Donna Gray, which I have paired with a Funky Fossil stencil called "Fall Flurry". I've used various shades of Distress Oxide Inks and Versafine Clair inks, along with a pencil for additional detail.
I used "Milled Lavendar" Distress Oxide Ink for the background, using the same ink through the Funky Fossil "Daisy Paisley Trio Stencil".
I used Versafine Clair "Purple Delight" ink to stamps the paisley patterns (part of the "Paisley Prints" stamp set). I added extra colour with a metallic silver pen and a white Posca Pen.

I set myself a challenge to use two stamps in my Lavinia Stamps stash that I had not yet used, I opted for "Jiminy" and the "Story" sentiment, with an off-cut of a background I had created some time ago using the Lavinia "Flurry" stencil.
I used Distress Oxide Inks, Versafine Clair Inks and Memento Inks for the stamping along with a couple of other Lavinia stamps ("Words of spring" verse and two "pound stamps").
I've treated myself with a tin of Derwent Inktense water colour pencils. I got the 72 set from Cult Pens for a bargain price of £81.47 I've seen them in other on-line shops for almost double that amount, so I was thrilled with my bargain.
I was keen to have a play, so decided to use a Penny Black cling stamp called "Butterfly Charmer", stamped in Versafine Clair "Twilight" dark blue ink and then coloured the butterflies with the Inktense pencils. They're really great to use and blend beautifully.

I appear to be on a roll creating with my Lavinia Stamps. Here's a card I made earlier today.
I've used the Lavinia "Splendour" stencil with Scattered Straw and Abandoned Coral Distress Oxide Ink.
I've used Versafine Clair "Nocturne" black ink to stamp the following Lavinia Stamp images:Harietta Silhouette, Silhouette Grass, Silhouette Foliage, Fairy Wishes Sentiment and Fairy Charms.
I used colouring pencils and a gold gelly roll pen for the lantern area.

Here's the card I've made this evening, again using Lavinia Stamps.
I've used the Lavinia "Leaf Mask" for the background with the Lavinia "Charming Stencil" with several shades of Distress Oxide Inks (Antique Linen, Tea Dye, Wild Honey, Bundled Sage, Rusty Hinge and Vintage Photo).
I've stamped the "Woodland Hares", "Garden Poppy" and "Heartfelt Verse" in Versafine Clair "Nocturne" black ink.
I've used some colouring pencils to add extra depth to areas of the leaf. I've also used a selection of metallic pens in gold and bronze to add highlight areas.
