Sophia Wishes

Happy Easter Monday. I hope you are enjoying the long weekend. I'm here with my second guest designer card for The Stamp Basket. I was asked to choose two images from the new Sarah Kay stamps and what a job that was. They are so gorgeous. You can find the whole range here at the Stamp Basket.

I have used the gorgeous Sophia Wishes. I love the old fashioned look of these images and decided to colour her in brown tones to tie in with the beautiful Prima Nature Garden papers. I used Vintage Photo Distress Ink on the paper and image and also on the chalk white seam binding. This seam binding is lovely as it is but can also be coloured with alcohol pens or Distress Inks to match your project. The corners were made using a Memory Box Macarena Die.


I also used Promarkers and Flexmarkers to colour the image and small Prima flowers.
Challenges:
Emma's Chocolate
ABC DT Anything Goes
Divas by Design Anything Goes
CES Swirls and pearls
Crafty Pad Die-licious
Paper Sundaes Sundae bar (I used kraft and diecuts)
Simon Says Use your favourite tool (BigShot)

I'm looking forward to a carvery lunch today out with my good friends Lynsey and Lisa and families so not much time for crafting today. The weather is awful here today again but have fun whatever you are doing.
