Hello everyone, hope you're all having the fabulous sunshine that we have on the South Coast this weekend, it really does feel like Spring has arrived and I actually only have 2 layers of clothes on instead of 4!
Today sees the start of a new challenge over at Fashionable Stamping Challenges chosen by fellow fashionette, Esther, and it's Sentimental so there must be a sentiment on your creation. We are sponsored as always by the lovely Leo of Flonzcraft who will be giving a $20 voucher to his online shop for the randomly drawn winner - so what are you waiting for - you have to be in it to win it!
I've made a fairly clean and simple card (well, for me anyway lol) as I wanted to show the gorgeous sentiment by Lindsay Mason to its best advantage.
I made the background paper with some tiny flowers from the Prima mini Meadowlark stamp set, layer stamping 2 of the flowers with Tattered Rose, Wild Honey, Stormy Sky and Shaded Lilac Distress inks on cream card and covered my card blank with this.
I stamped the bird (Kaisercraft Bonjour stamp set) with Archival Coffee ink on the right side of a strip of thick cartridge paper and stamped the sentiment (Lindsay Mason Messages 1 by Personal Impressions) with the same ink. I then painted the bird with Distress Stains (Spun Sugar, Dried Marigold, Picked Raspberry, Tea Dye, Rusty Hinge, Pumice Stone and Crushed Olive) - I can't get enough of these at the moment as they're so easy to paint with.
I added the painted panel to the card and then added scalloped borders on either side, die cut from hyacinth blue card with a Sizzix die (658954 Borders). Done!
My fellow fashionettes have an amazing array of creations lined up for you on the catwalk so dop pop on over for a look and hope you can enter as we'd love to see you there.
We also have a fabulous guest designer with us this time and it's none other than my former fellow Make My Monday design team mate, Suzanne of Suzanne's Papercrafting. She's made a really gorgeous project for us too.
Have a great Sunday.
Hugs, Fliss xx
