Sorry for the lateness of my post - blogger and I had a bit of a falling out. For some reason my appeared 2 days before I wrote it. It could be 'user' error but it's easier to blame Blogger. LOL Hopefully we're all sorted now. (Quick Update) Thanks to Christine who spotted my error in the 'Here's What I did' section, thanks hunni I owe you one! Hopefully I've written everything up properly now. -- phew I've had a nightmare!!!
Anyhoo ------- it's that time of the month ---- it's Sweet Stampin' time. Yay!!!
This week's theme is Photo Inspired - so it's all about using the gorgeous colours in this wonderful photo.
In my little card I used lilacs, blues and greens from the photo to create a 'New home' card. To be honest I made the card for my new neighbours --- but I didn't actually give them it (oops how bad am I!!). The stamp I used is one I've had for ages, it was part of a mag and stamp kit from Polkadoodle's Pen & Paper Circle. It's the first time I've used it but it won't be the last - it stamped brilliantly and it's so sweet and wonderful to colour.
Photo to be inspired by
Here's What I didI used a 5" x 5" white scalloped card base and matted it with pretty LOTV patterned paper. I stamped the cute little cottage onto Neenah CS and die cut it into a circle. I coloured it flat with my Copic Pens and used a little pan pastel for the sky. I punched out a border strip and die cut a scalloped circle from the same coloured cardstock and layered everything up. To finish off I die cut a few little clouds and added a touch of glitter.
Here's everything I used:
Digi Stamp: 'Cottage' by Polkadoodles
Paper/Cardstock (CS): LOTV 'Promises', Papermania CS, Neenah CS
Copics: Skin - Various (Sorry I still can't find my notebook with all my colour lists)
Dies: Spellbinders 'Circle and Scallop Circle', Joy! 'Clouds'
Other: Tonic Border Punch, Glitter, Pan Pastel
