A little Gem

This stamp was a freebie in the April issue of Craftstamper magazine.Horace was designed by Pink Gem Designs and isn’t he adorable?

I’ve coloured the image with Promarkers.On the original stamp the head of the flower is solid so would be black.I decided to thread a wired flower in it’s place and decorated the edges of the petals with Diamond Stickles.I used a double embossing technique to create the frame within the embossed backgound.Here I’ve used Nestabilities Labels 3 and Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder.I’ve not done this in a while so I really had to think about it! The corners have been punched with a Martha Stewart punch from a recent TSV on QVC.This piece has been mounted using foam tape.A Deep Edger from the same set has been used on the bottom of the lilac layer of card.The tops corners have been punched with a Small Rounder.The card I’ve used is Papermania Textured.A length of organza ribbon has been tied around the top to finish.

This card was created with the inspiration of these challenges :

Allsorts : ‘No DP’s’

I Love Promarkers : ‘Animals’

Pollycraft : ‘Anything Goes’

Quixotic Challenges : ‘The joy’s of Spring’

Your Next Stamp : ‘Purple’
