I'm a happy bunny today as some of my new stash arrived :-) Just need to find some time to play. I got some very large Heiddi Swapp flowers - they measure about 5", 8 gorgeous distress ink pads, a free packet of rub ons and 14 Cats Life Press stamps - I bought 12, but they sent me two extra free:-).
This is the card I made for the Sunday Stampers Challenge set by Pinkle. This weeks challenge was "make a card, tag, ATC or even alter something but keep the colours black & white or cream & white". The actual card layout is one which was in March Craft Stamper Magazine and as I really liked it, I thought I'd give it a go. I used white cardstock and stamped the front of the card randomly with an Anna Griffin stamp in black ink. I then cut two strips of black card and two strips of white card to put on the inside of the front of the card and I again stamped them using the same AG stamp. I then cut a piece of black paper to make an insert for the card and I stamped a Dovecraft flower/swirl stamp randomly in versamark ink and embossed it with white embossing powder. Finally I added two white eyelets to the front of the card and threaded some black fibres so the card could be closed. Hope you like this as much as I do :-)
