Letters and Roses


I'm back with my second post for today. Please scroll down for my Humphrey sneak peek.

This is my third guest designer card for The Stamp Basket.

I have used the gorgeous new Bildmalarna Letters and Roses stamp. The card blank is Craftwork Cards on the edge elegant one and I decide to try something different with this card. I wanted to show off the beautiful birds on the Prima Meadowlark paper so stuck part of a sheet direct to the card and then cut it out following the shape of the card. I then mounted the die cut image onto more of the same paper and added some cream vintage ribbon. She has been coloured with Promarkers ad Flexmarkers and I paper pieced her dress to match the backing paper.

The large Prima Meadowlark flowers match the papers so beautifully and I added some tiny flowers and some Hobby House pearls to the flowers and to her bouquet.

I would love it if you hopped over to The Stamp Basket and posted a comment on my post.
