I got a fab new stamp yesterday and couldn't wait to use it on a couple of birthday cards I need to make (for tomorrow, eek!). I thought I'd do them in two different styles, one with an old fashioned, distressed look and the other one using more up to date, modern papers. That was the plan and so far I have just done the distressed card:
The background stamps were deliberately done in an incomplete distressed style.
This is the main image though, it is such a fun stamp, very quirky:
Sentiment says 'Meet under the tree for a nice cup of tea'
The stamp is a Crafty Individuals stamp from Aldridge Crafts.
The fake stitching is a rub on, the papers (distressed with sandpaper) were freebies from card magazines and the image and the Happy Birthday sentiment were attached with 3d dots. The placement design was from an old CPS sketch.
I would like to enter it into the following challenges:
On Creative Flourishes you will find examples of my photography, mixed media artwork, cardmaking and general art & craft making. Hopefully I will inspire others (as others inspire me) to get creating too! I also include snippets of my family life with my husband and my two boys, aged 17 and 14.
