In Colour Meadow...


I recently had the opportunity to stamp out a couple of images using the Wildflower Meadow stamp, which is coming in our new catty on the 2nd of June. At our Bristol SU training day, Hayley showed us how to use inks and a blender pen to ink up a stamp (like a marker but with a softer finish) so I tried that, embossed it with the matching embossing folder and took it home so I could make something with it. When I saw the current Fab Friday challenge I knew this would be perfect as I had used the new In Colours to ink up the stamp...

Here's what I ended up with after adding a few bits and pieces to the coloured image...

I added a scalloped strip of Baked Brown Sugar card and some white organza ribbon that I dyed with Crisp Cantaloupe ink (love this effect!) and I also added a little bit of a doily in the corner behind the ribbon. The sentiment (from Happy Day) was stamped on Vellum with Stazon then I added sticky strip above and below and covered with Dazzling Diamonds glitter. I couldn't resist adding a little flower embellishment made with the new clay and molds!

Thanks for stopping by...
