Funky Fossil Designs January 2020 New Stamp Release Day - Adventure Set

Today, Saturday 25th January is the release day for five brand new clear stamp sets from Funky Fossil Designs.  I've made this card using one of the new sets called "Adventure".

I started by swooshing the top section of the card is spritzed "Tumbled Glass" and "Antique Linen" Distress Oxide Inks.  Using some of the ink remaining on my craft mat, I filled in the gaps not covered using a paint brush.  I felt it needed some darker areas, so applied some diluted "Stormy Sky" Distress Oxide Ink, again applied with a paint brush.

I used another Distress Oxide Ink (Iced Spruce), to stamp the trees. I then used a little diluted "Tumbled Glass" Distress Oxide to paint some pale blue onto the snow below the trees.

Finally, I stamped the bird and the sentiment using Versafine Clair "Morning Mist" grey coloured ink.


  1. Another beautiful atmospheric background teamed with these beautiful stamps

  2. This is a beautiful outdoor scene, love the palette! I'd never think to use antique linen in a sky.

    1. Thank you so much. I sometimes take photos of the sky to remind me what colours I can use. It sounds a bit odd, but it works for me x

  3. Love this great outdoors set, especially the waterfall image

  4. Great inspiration Sam and such a beautiful card, fab stamp set that I can see lots of uses for.

  5. What a beautiful card. I like the way you made your background to create a sky for this forest scene
