Sheena Douglass NEW product Launch!!

Good evening crafters!
I hope you are well!?...It's that time....BRAND new launch from Sheena Douglass!! YAY! oh my days you lot are so very lucky! because Sheena has brought you some totally gorgeous stamps and embossing folders ONCE AGAIN! remember the last totally gorgeous launch right? all those amazing stamps with coordinating dies.. well, this new little lot only go with them may even call them "Perfect Partners"! so we have 8 new embossing folders that compliment the last stamp launch beeeeautifully! I can't wait for you to see them, and then 4 sparkly brand new stamp sets that you are so going to fall in love with and guessed it, go with all the others stamps too! I had so much fun with this launch I have soooo many ideas, for different stamp combinations, I simple ADORE creating scenes, I LOVE it, drawing gum is my new best friend and has opened up a world of possibilities for me, because I never was all that good at masking, with practise I'm sure I would have got it...but with drawing gum I don't need to ! I made 8 projects for this launch ( and about a million ideas!) unfortunately my crafting was cut short as I've been really unwell since last week! still not too good but on the mend, so as soon as I'm back to fighting fit I shall be creating so much more!!
so are you ready.... here we go...
 first up!how cute is this cat!...I am 100% a cat girl so this one drew me in straight away! coloured with spectrum pens, then an aquatint background with salt effect!, then the frame? well that's one of the new embossing folders! Daisy frame, I've simply cut out the centre ,
 I've made 2 cards from each stamp set, so here is cat number 2! background stamps are from Sheena's last launch , see how well they work together! so this one is a sort of evening dusk type of feel, nice little sunset, then I've used Sheena's matching stamp and die set Wild Rose around the sides.
 Next we have a beautiful stamp of two children feeding Chickens! love it! the branch and bird house is another of the new embossing folders, I've simply coloured the embossed lines with my spectrum noir pens! again I've used the dies and stamps from Sheena's last launch to create my leaves and flowers.
number 2.....but this time I've used the weathered tree embossing folder, colouring the lines once more with my spectrum noir pens, then added some 3D flowers and Leaves from the last launch ( see I told you everything works together!!!)
 now this one I love..... I really do, I think this may be my favourite stamp, its just so lovely, I can just imagine his little face looking out over the fields. this time I've used the tree stamps from Sheena's last launch and one of the new embossing folders twisted vine, to create a border, that I've then highlighted with gilding wax.Couple more 3D flowers and leaves to finish, dog coloured with pens the rest Aquatints and Distress Inks
 now for a BIG here I've used the field stamp, Scarecrow stamp Oak leaf stamp and tractor stamp from the LAST launch, with the pair of dogs from the new launch!, some clever use of drawing gum so I could achieve my layered scene, coloured with spectrum pens, aquatints and aqua pens.
 a noble steed up next! there are many horse lovers out there, they always remind me now of my friend Pam x
Coloured up with spectrum pens, aquatint background, then I've used the Brambles stamp and die set from last launch.
horse number 2!.....evening on the farm, Ive used the new apples embossing folder for my base mat here, its a lovely folder, then the wild rose stamp and die set to add dimension.
and there you go! 
So toomorrow on create and craft at 8am, 11am, 2pm, 4pm and 7pm, I hope you can tune in and catch the shows, and if not hit that record button!
