Buzzing By


I received my new Alota Rubber Stamps from the USA and just had to use some of them straight away. This stamp I just had to buy as I thought it was so cute and could be used for many occasions - it is quite a large stamp too, approx 3 3/4" x 4 1/2".

I stamped the image onto some white card using black archival ink and coloured the design using prismacolour pencils blending with sansador. I used a blue distress ink and lightly swirled some ink around the image to create a sky look. The dp I used on this card is from Sweet Shoppe Designs and the sentiment I printed from my pc and again coloured with blue distress ink. To finish the card off I added a paper flower from a K & Co "make a flower" pad and a light blue ribbon from my stash.
