Bare back rider - Magnolia vs Stampavie 14

Donna has set us a colour challenge this week, such beautiful colours too! Up till now I had not tried mixing green in with my favourite colour combo but it's growing on me now lol.

Challenge 14
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


Thanks for looking,

  6. Bev, this card looks amazing! I have some border stamps and I haven't dared to use them much, thought they might look a bit daft!!! You've so proved this not to be the case, thanks for the inspiration. Can I give you a piece of useful info? I do have a set of the Tapestry stamps but I've been on the look out for something a bit cheaper and, guess what? There is a range by See D's called Morsels, similar kind of thing and so cheap on EBay!!

  59. SIMPLE - Oh Bev, I do wish you would teach me to do "Simple" - that card is gorgeous and Tilda looks just dandy sitting on her little horse. Love how you've used your RST stamps to creat your border - "little grey cells" were working just fine. And of course those embellishments - divine!!

  61. lovely card bev, never thought to use tapestty stamps around a stamped image.

    Thanks for asking how I am. I'm doing ok, painkillers are keping the pain at bay and I am now managing to get about with more confidence, getting up and down the stairs I am now managing on my own too. Tomorrow I have to go to fracture clinic to have an xray to see how its healing, thanks for thinking of me. x x x x
