Another week as gone by and it's time for another challenge at Stamp With Stampavie.This week it's a sketch to follow by our guest designer Nicole (Kymba-Slydog).
Hope to see you joining us this week,and a big thank you to those who played along last week.
I've used another of my new Sarah Kay stamps this week "Spring Blossoms"coloured with my not so faithfull Copic,i seemed better with these the first time i used them,my hubby say's i'm trying too hard with them now.
I cut the image out and matted it onto heavy weight card,the same that i used for my base card to form the tag,the edges i fancied up with my "Threading Water" punch by Fiskars.On the back of the tag i've matted a sentiment from a Personal Impressions clear stamp set.
All the papers used are K & Co "Roam",the small flowers have all been cut from the same papers and finished off with flat backed pearls from stash.
The sentiment on the card is by Inkadinkado.
Large metal brad from my stash as is the ribbom.
The heart corners have been die cut using the Wizard.
I haven't been able to join in with many challenges for awhile,not because i don't want,but somehow life and it's problems have had to come first over my crafting,yes somethings are more important,but do wish things would settle alittle,oh well enough of me feeling sorry for myself,hope you all have a lovely day whatever you're doing,
Take care
