Perfect birthday/Easter celebrations (WOYWW)
WOYWW. For once it is looking fairly organised with my craft mat and the card I am working on taking central space, 2 green adirondack (pesto and lettuce), 2 green distress (shabby shutters and pine needles) and versamark Olympia green ink pads ready for use on an all green card. The various stamps scattered about have been chosen specifically for the card I had in mind and are a mixture of Lavinia, Crafty Individual and Indigoblu. My trusty mug of tea is there (half drunk and still nice and warm) and hiding behind it are a box full of stamps and a box full of versacolour ink pads.
Less is More challenge to use three greens. I have only used green on this card with the masked hills and grass stamped using Distress ink shabby shutters, the seed heads lower down using Adirondack pesto and finally the hares, tree, dragonfly and detail at the bottom of the card stamped using Versafine Olympia green. The background is completely white; the shading is just my camera not coping with the lighting I'm afraid. The stamps used were Crafty individuals (grass, seed heads, tree and sentiment), hero Arts (dragonfly), IndigoBlu (free Hare stamp) and Lavinia stamps (other grass!). I am also entering this card into CCC 'Spring is in the air' (hares remind me of spring as does the fresh green), SSDS 'things with wings' and Pile it On 'All about S' (Spring & stamping).
Quirky Crafts. The challenge this week was set by Cazzy and it is New baby/Pregnancy and must include gingham, ribbon and novelty baby buttons/eyelets/brads. We were given images by our sponsor Stitchy Bear digital stamps and I was given the 'Hush lil baby' silhouette stamp to work with. I am also entering this into Kaboodle Doodles 'celebrate new life' challenge. That is all from me for now. Have a great week everyone.
