Yesterday I had time to sit and ink up some of my Waltzingmouse Stamps.....I haven't played in the challenges for a long time and this week WMSC35 is a star!!!!
Oh good I have one of those saved to the PI so no messing around today right into it!
I also had some Pink Petticoats paper printed and ready to go. My base card of cream was given two layers, one of plain blue and the second with this subtle pattern. Machine stitching added a little interest around the star shape.
For the centre image I've stamped the pretty circle stamp from Vintage Labels 2 followed by one of the tiny accent stamps from Victorian Frippery, stamped four times to fill the centre. Cut with a Spellbinder die, this is matted to some more of the blue card and popped up on foam dots.
The sentiment, also from Victorian Frippery was stamped in the same VersaColor 60 Celadon before it too was die cut using a Spellbinder label die. Now for the fun bit ......layering a handmade lace flower, a scrunched seam binding bow, a smaller PI cut star with the sentiment and a blue button attached. All tied together with some linen thread.......ahhh ......that's the Tillymint version of Shabby Chic !!!
To finish off I added an AnnaBelle Stamps waterfall Sprinkle to the very centre of the card.
Hope you like..........
Whilst I sat making this little card......Christchurch, New Zealand suffered another terrible earthquake with many buildings destroyed and sadly lives lost. The news during the evening showed terrible scenes, I'm not sure how people walked away from some of those buildings.
Ian and I had such a wonderful holiday on the South Island of New Zealand. Spending quite a few days enjoying Christchurch. I cried when I saw the Cathedral........so sad!
My heart goes out to the people of Christchurch and all those who lost loved ones, homes and belongings.
I can't remember such a terrible start to a year as this has been..........
