Life’s a picnic – No Josh-in’

csdnr24thfeb 1

It’s Crafty Sentiments Designs New Releases Day 5 Preview.There will be 5 fantastic new rubber stamps over at Crafty Sentiments Designs on 25th February.

Here’s a little sneak peek of Josh – Picnic.Such a great image with those warmer months approaching and a good all rounder too – there’s so much scope with this.I’ve coloured him with Copic Ciao and Sketch Markers and gone for a pretty rustic,woodsy feel to my card.Lots of kraft,distressed edges,raffia lace ribbon,wooden button threaded with jute twine,a cluster of die cut greenery and….a squashed bottle cap!Well,a beer one to be precise.Hubby donates me quite a few of these so I put them to a better purpose 🙂

If you haven’t seen the previous New Release Preview Days  I suggest you pop over to the Crafty Sentiments Inspirations Blog and check out my fellow Teamies  amazing creations.You will not be disappointed!!
