I have been wanting to play with my photostamps from Stampsmith, and as always, Quietfire Design has the most beautiful sentiments and background stamps. They seem to compliment each other so well. For the background, I used the I love you Alphabet, and the sentiment There are two things, both from Quietfire Design. I first stamped the photo image on glossy paper with Ancient Page coal black ink. I heated it to dry it well, then used a sponge to add distress inks to make it look older. I then went in with my phototwin markers and coloured the flowers and bows on the girls. Ran it thru the cuttlebug with my new Nestibilities Label, and ran a background paper thru one size bigger as well. The background was stamped with Light Brown from Ancient Page. The sentiment was stamped with Chestnut Roan Chalk Ink. I then assembled also putting a piece of chocolate brown satin ribbon, and some self adhesive pearls from Kaiser Craft onto the card for interest.
I stamped off a pile of photostamps the other night, so I will be making cards with them in the next while and will add them as I get them done!
We got snow last night! I love it, it's so quiet when it snows. I am not sure if you know what I mean, but to me, it's very peaceful. The snow is all melting now, but I have to say, I am looking forward to winter and the snow staying....lol I know many of you won't agree with me though!
Have a wonderful day and thank you for stopping by!
