Blimey, February already which means that it's time for our new challenge over at The Flower Challenge and this time we want you to use your latest stamps or dies.
|I was supposed to be on a stash diet, but when my local craft shop had this Sizzix Natural Florals die on sale a couple of weeks ago, I succumbed! I die cut it out of some glossy card on which I'd created a background with brushos. I trimmed some orange card to fit a 6x6 card and then embossed a piece of white card with an old Spellbinders double sided embossing folder. I added a sentiment from the Mama Elephant, Occasional Labels stamp set (I've had this set for a while, but it was the first time that it'd been inked up!). True to form I got an inky mark at the top of the card and so had to add a few sequins to cover it.
We 't wait to see your creations this month, please ensure that you check out our rules and if you could include our cue card in your post we'd love you even more than we already do!
Not surprised you were tempted with this die Cara! Stunning! And the Brusho colours pop off the white! xReplyDelete
