I hope wherever you are it's a bit warmer than it is in Sydney at the moment.........17c it says on my computer, I'm sitting with the heater on!!!
I've been playing with a few different things today and threw then all into this one card ...... what do you think?
I love this Plaid stamp from Waltzingmouse Stamps Pic - Nic Patterns and decided to try quite a simple plaid in brown and orange. I actually masked half of my stamp for the orange stripe but it worked really well, stamped onto SU Kraft. I saw some great plaids on the Waltzing Hop earlier in the week, so need to have a play.
I also saw a couple of these paper lace doily flowers this week and tried one for myself ..... the verdict is still out ..... not sure if I like them or not I love the scruffie flowers and tissue flowers bettter I think! Mine has a centre scalloped circle that was cut using a SU punch with a button sitting over that. I distressed the white doily with Antique Linen Distress ink then spritzed it with gold glimmer mist.
For the first time I used a scalloped die to cut some felt......oh love this...... think I might try cutting felt Nesties next!! I just added a row of hand stitching to mine for the card. I picked this die up at my local Spotlight store.
This gorgeous kettle is from a Waltzingmouse set called Afternoon Tea and I've stamped it in Bronze VersaColor ink.........I think it looks like an old copper kettle the kind you stand on a range. I used a Spellbinder die to cut this out and again used Antique Linen sponged around the edge to age it.
The sentiment from the same set is stamped in brown VersaColor onto some Kraft and a length of crochet cotton added to the cute teabag label Claire gave us on her blog. I'm entering this card into a challenge over at Create4Fun which this week is vintage. Challenge - Week 21.
Well better get this finished I've had a day of playing and we are due at my Brother's place for Dinner so better get my skates on.
Hope you all enjoy a restful week end see you back here soon I hope.
