Another Challenge

Hello, back again with another challenge......




I love the colours for this challenge.



I have used the paisley background stamp for this card. I inked up the stamp and then added colour over the top of the ink with the markers. Once I was happy with the areas that I coloured, I lightly sprayed the stamp with water and stamped up. When dry I tore one third off and attached to the card.

Some wide ribbon was used to create the layered bow. The left over card stock from the background stamp was attached to the flap of an envelope and then I scalloped the edge to pretty up.









Recipe: wide certainly celery ribbon; whisper white & not quite navy card stock; river rock ink pad, not quiet navy & certainly celery markers; for you sediment & paisley background stamp.


Guest what I received yesterday? The new catalogues that will be available very soon - April 1. Talk about drool! I wish I could show you guys. There are so many new products and the new stamps are all pre-cut hooray no more cutting.

The new embellishments are to die for, new brads & buttons will be on my wish list for sure. Anyway, until next time.....
