New Dimension Fourth Stamps

This weeks stamps from the Fabby Ali were as you can see Oriental themed .
The cards were all a bit rushed as we only got the stamps on Wed evening and i had to have them made ready for delivery by Sat. night . A very nice set with plenty of possibilities .
Stamped images coloured with promarkers and a bit of glamour dust on the blossoms .
I made the little tassel on the fan using some embroidery silks . The background paper is from my stash of 12 x 12
Used the bigger blossom stamp for this one with the vase stamp . a fair bit of masking done on this card lol. coloured in with Twinkling H2O's and the background done with shimmer chalks . On the base card i did a resist stamp effect along the top and bottom then used the shimmer chalks around the edges . It dosenot show up to well in the pic but has a lovely glow to it .
Don't these fish look scary lol.
I stamped and embossed the flowers onto the background the did a bit of brayering over it ( with a rubber band wrapped round the brayer to give the impression of the ripples in the water )
Then dusted it over with distressed ink . Stamped the small blossoms in the corner and coloured them with a white sakura gel pen . The fish were stamped onto Gold Mirri card cut out then adhered with 3d foam pads . Matted it onto gold mirri card the black base card which i had stamped and embossed win gold
The red card on this one was stamped and embossed in gold using 1 of the word symbols from the set . The bamboo stamped with green ink pad , and the Samuri stamped then coloured with Promarkers and 3D onto the card with silicone glue The large token is also a stamp from the set and the black ribbon threaded through it ws from my stash

This is the new set of stamps from Dimension Fourth featured on Create and craft yesterday.
I loved using them as i could get messy . I stamped the main image with Old book distress inks and while the ink was still wet i used my aqua pen to pull out the colour on the mice , I then used the Broken Straw ink pad to water colour the stalks of corn . The leaves were randomly stamped on the cream card using a selection of distressed inks . 4 corner leaves were stamped and cut out rubbed over with gold Mica powder , although its hard to see it on here. used some copper coloured brads to afix the leaves to the corners .
You can see some more lovely samples from this set of stamps over here and a super video on you tube by Ali

A plain and simple card using just the verse and leaf stamp but i think the colours make it. I
used a few card candies on it just to lift it a bit
3D card i love this style of card you can get so much on it by layering up your images
