Time seems to fly these days as it's another Saturday already so it's time for a new Allsorts challenge theme. Speaking of challenges, did you see I am hosting a new monthly challenge right here on my blog called "I spy with my little eye"? Just started on Wednesday! Hope you'll check it out :) I would love for you to join in!!
At Allsorts challenge we have another fun optional theme and it is "Perfect Pastels". Great prizes are up for grabs this week/month so hopefully you will join us! We have prizes from Prizes from Oakwood, Highlight Crafts, AALL and Create and Craft Stash.
Here is my card.
My husband recently found this gorgeous PSX stamp (K1695) at a thrift store and thought I might like to enjoy coloring it so he purchased it for me. He was right, it was a joy to color up and a perfect stamp to use this time of the year. It's retired but can usually be found on eBay.
I stamped with Memento Tuxedo ink on Neenah 80lb cardstock then used my Copic markers for coloring. Victorian Velvet Distress ink seemed to match my pink Copic colored tulips so I used that Distress Oxide ink to ink up the edges. Then I laid the outer Rectangle Extraordinaire stencil from MFT over the card and inked up the inside using Shaded Lilac Distress ink. Still I thought the card needed something else, when I looked through my stamps I found this small "crackle" background stamp which is part of this Stampers Anonymous stamp/stencil set and used it in each of the corners with the rectangle mask in place. The sentiment is from the Penny Black sentiment set Blooming Sentiments. I use this stamp so often, I just love the font and it works so well for all occasions! I added a butterfly which was done with a Martha Steward punch. Stickles glitter was added to the tulips and butterfly to make them sparkle.
You have until Friday morning UK time to join us. Remember the Perfect Pastels theme is optional so feel free to link up all your new crafty makes for a chance to win!
