This has given me time to play in my craft room with my toys - I love playdates!!
This card is for three challenges:
- Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge - WMSC57
- Less Is More - week 25 where the recipe is to use button and/or ribbon (or plurals)
- St Luke's Charity Card - Black, white and ONE other colour - there still time to join in with our challenge - do check out our blog to find out the details.
When I saw the LIM challenge I almost decided to give it a miss - I'm really not good with ribbons and bows. But I wouldn't let it beat me. I knew I wanted to use my sweet teapot for this card and the little rectangles on the sketch reminded me of the framed sentiments in the set. I stamped them with Versafine and heat embossed with clear powder. I cut them out and lined them up on a ribbon, adding some button accents to match the colour of the teapot!! Sorted! I used the kiss technique on the solid stamp - and am really pleased how well it turned out. I added a bit of steam coming from the teapot - just so that you know there's a nice hot cup of tea waiting.
Stamps: Waltzingmouse - Afternoon Tea, Afternoon Tea Sentiments; Flower stamp for kiss technique
Inks: Versafine - Onyx Black; Memento - Danube Blue, London Fog
Accessories: Ribbon, buttons, card, thread, clear embossing powder - all from stash
In between crafting, playing with the kids, getting lunch - I've even managed to get three loads of washing done and on the line - it's drying really well. I love the summer when it's like this. Hope you're all having a great day too.
