Sweet Dreams

At Craftbubble group Let’s Get Stamping it was GDT Cindy’s turn to provide the sketch:

The twist this week was 1 Brad,1Button and 1 Bow.

This is also going to be an entry for the following challenges :

Stamp Something : Distressed Something

Your Next Stamp : Distressing

The Craft Garden: Take inspiration from this photo

Totally Gorjuss: Ribbon

Pile it on : Furry Friends

Fab ‘n’ Funky: It’s all new ( use something new )

The ABC Challenge: Q for Quotation

Caardvarks: Lace

I just love these Mouser-kins stamps so much I just had to use one again!She’s such a darling isn’t she?I thought I’d go for a much softer look by using tonal colours.She’s been coloured with Promarkers and the edges have had Tea Dye,Tattered Rose and Aged Mahogany Distress Ink applied.The quote from Hero Arts Anytime Messages sheet has been edged in the same colours.Both pieces have been cut using Nellie’s Multi Frames Dies Ovals and Squares.The paper is K & Co and the corners are cut using an inverted corner punch.To embellish the card I have used a length of Raffia Lace,a piece of ribbon,a button from the fabulous Bag-o-Buttons (it has a large hole in the middle so I was able to thread both ends of the ribbon through before tying) and a Papermania brad from the Reds and Pinks pack.I decided to make the embellishments the elements at the bottom on the original sketch and kind of pile them one on top of the other.And take note I’ve used ANOTHER button!!Just the one this time I’ve got to make them last you know.
