Swirls & Pearls at Sweet Stampin'


Sending you some sweet tweets today! We're having a new lovely challenge at Sweet Stampin'; Swirls and Pearls. So why not make good use of some stamps, rubber or digi, and join us. We're being sponsored by Live & Love Crafts, please check our website for all the details and to see the teams fabulous cards.


Challenges:
Moving along with the times: In the garden
Addicted to stamps: Anything Goes
STAMPlorations: Anything Goes

Materials used:
Stamplorations bird stamped with Black Memento ink onto snippets and coloured with ProMarkers. The birds were fuzzy cut out and mounted on 3D squares.

The background was made with acrylic colours and a small Gelli plate. It gives a nice thin and really smooth coat of paint on paper, I can recommend it if you like me have a lot of unused colours.

The swirls are a Penny Black image stamped with Distress ink and the enamel dots that I went rogue with are Recollections. They do look like plastic pearls.

Thank you so much for visiting, it's much appreciated. I'm enjoying the bank holidays this weekend and looking forward to sow some plant seeds. Hope the birds won't find the seeds tasty :)

Happy Easter!!!


Love and hugs
Maarit
