Sorry things have been a bit quiet here...I've been away for the last week and I'm still catching up!

This is my next Creative Expressions Dt piece using the heartfelt stamps and dies. I used a versamark ink pad to stamp the images then used chalk to colour the images. The background was made using the rose bud stamp. The seam binding was dyed using Victorian velvet distress stains and the leaves were made using one die cut from the heartfelt die set cut in two. The main rosebud image was stamped onto an oval cut from the spellbinders lacy oval set.


I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
"Crafty bloggers network"

"Love to Create - anything goes"
"Make it Monday - anything goes"
"Simon Says Stamp - make your own background"
"sparkles forum challenges - Mothers day"

This is so pretty Sue! I love the victoriana feel to this creation. It reminds me of a china teaset my Gran had years ago.

Sue.....when I open your log to look at your LOVERLY CREATION...my thought was....Using patterned paper doesn't constitute a background...then I read you stamped and dusted it....I WAS BLOWN AWAY!! JUST BEAUTIFUL!!!
