I was brave enough to use papers from a new stack.
I love these papers from Laura Ashley, found them on a sale. Have just been looking and drooling at them for two weeks. I saw that Bizzy Becs-Creatalicious Challenges wanted pink or plum with burgundy and green with lace, ribbon or fiber. I thought that this paper could fit in, but I do hope the cream background passes. I have distressed some of it with Distress Inks Worn Lipstick.
I used a Magnolia stamp for the image so that I can use Bevs fab sketch at Just Magnolia Challenge. I coloured it with watercolour pens and Distress Inks, I´m still not sure if I should have gone for less vibrant colours for the image, well too late now, next time I´ll be wiser...or not.
As I´ve used my distress tool (the unstitch tool) and Distress Inks to get a distressed look I can also join this weeks Cupcake Crafts Challenge.
I used scissors and hole punch to make the paper edge more interesting. I also used my oval scalloped nesties, QK die for leaves and Cuttlebug die for the flower.
Buttons and ribbon are from Panduro, everything else is from my stash. Whimsy Stamp Challenges wants to see buttons so I´m joining them this week too.
I soon need to do something to my scrap heap. If you hear about a mysterious explosion in Stockholm, you´ll know that it was my scrap heap that exploded, hehe. I´ve decided not to buy new papers before I´ve used a huge lot of those scraps. Wonder how long I will last?! I guess I´ll forget all about my decision next time I stumble over a bargain.
Hope you all get a nice evening with fab scrapping and stamping,
