Stamp Something Challenge this week is "Cherry Inspired Somethings",this is the first time i've entered this challenge,couldn't miss this one,with my Blog being called Cherry Pickin'
The stamp ive used was one i had out of a bargain bin at the NEC in march,there's no markings on it so not sure who it's made by,it's not an out line stamp so coloured directly onto the stamp with whispers markers,stamped and then coloured the image again with prisma's,sansador and paper stumps,then used 3d gloss over the top,i'm really pleased how this as turned out.
The sentiment is an HOTP rub-on.
The papers are Pink Petticoat "Lola's Boudoir Collection" printed onto gloss photo paper.
Ribbon,gems and beads for the hatpin all from stash.

Hi Sandra, your card is so beautiful and it's such an appropriate challenge to enter for you, I agree, not one to be missed! I love how your cherries came out too, they look so glossy and edible!

HI Sandra,
Another stunning card and a great interpretation of the challenge.

Could I ask where you get the hatpins from? I've been looking for some plain ones to decorate but can only find really long ones.
Thanks v much
