I wanted to use both the stamps that the lovely Jacqui sent me (thanks sweetie, you are way too kind xxx) and although I'm not sure that a posh little lady in a hat with a veil should be bare-back riding ..... my little Tilda looks well comfy on her horse!!
I love the new floral border stamps that Alota have brought out but can't justify the expense when firstly I am on a sort of stash ban and am trying not to give in to my addiction, and secondly I would be restricted to what size image and mat I can use soooo, I had a good think (yep - that one single little brain cell got a good old work-out!!) and I had one of those eureka! moments! Out came the Rubber Stamp Tapestry peg stamps, matching chalk inks and away I set to make my own border for the image. I got a teeny bit carried away and did the mat on the inside for the sentiment lol. I dotted stickles in the centres of the flowers. Okay, it's not nearly as good as the Alota frames but just as effective I think. Hmmm, I've a feeling these RST peg stamps will be getting a bit more of an airing now!!
A side(ish) view of the image, I popped Tilda up on foam pads to give a bit more dimension. The flowers are all punched with Retro Flower Punches. The tickets are made by cutting a small rectangle and punching a 1/2 circle on either side.
I've left the card blank so I can write a sentiment in it. I’ve carried the floral frame and tickets theme through to the inside as well as the stitching.
Please pop over and take a peek at the other DT cards, such wonderful inspiration
Recipe:Magnolia images coloured with Distress Inks and H2O's. Sentiments are from a Scrappy Cat set
Papers are my all time favourite K&Co - these papers have helped me out of many a tight squeeze lol.
The floral frames are stamped with Rubber Stamp Tapestry Pansy & Daisy Wreath.
That's all there is to this card, nice and simple and I even managed a charm and some ribbon too!
I received this award from Tracie, thanks so much sweetie xxx
