sew sweet

Popping on another of my "experimental" cards!

Still trying to get to grips with the old distress inks and what you can do with them. All the stamps are Hero Arts. The background was stamped and embossed with 'happy definition' and then I inked up and water misted 'silhoutte flower' and stamped over the background. I then stamped 'special moments' and coloured with distress inks. A little bit of twine to finish.

I am entering my creation into the photo inspiration Stampalot Challenge, just under the wire!

The eagle eyed among you will have noticed a new badge on my side bar. Yes, I am a Sew Sweet Sweetie. How cool is that? They stock the most gorgeous collection of ribbon, twine, wool felt and my personal favourite....buttons and so much more! The Sew Sweet shop can be found here and for loads of inspiration the blog is here. Enjoy!
