A little bit country

We had sunshine today (okay and a bit rain too) AND Ashley & Pudsey won BGT whoop whoop whoop!  I was thrilled to bits for them, seeing a young lass devote her life to her doggie was so humbling and is a shining example to all youngsters.

This stamp – A little bit of country - has been sat on my desk for weeks waiting patiently to be inked up so yesterday I had a play.  I had intended colouring it up with my distress inks but halfway though gave up and went back to the Copics and pencils.  Not too sure I like the wishy washy look of distress inks any more, I think I need a lot more practice.

The summer doily die is from Crafty Sentiments, the lacy border is a MS punch.  And a close up of the stamp, awww it is just so cute, loving her tatty dress lol.

The paper was in my scraps box, no idea of the make though.  I used small organza rose trim along the bottom of the card and ran a piece of flatback ivory pearl string along the side.  All my embellishments are from Wild Orchid Crafts (as always) and the other embellies used are metal corner, filigree antique gold butterfly (painted white) and on sale at the moment, Cottage Rose, 20mm roses, 15mm roses, 10mm roses, cosmos daisies, 8mm semi open roses.

And a peek at the inside finished off to compliment the front.  The little tag sentiments are from Lili of the Valley’s Sentiment Tags that were released on the 9th May.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend, I’m going to have another go at those distress inks lol

  35. Gorgeous as always, Bev. I know what you mean about Distress Inks... I love the look but when I try to replicate it I end up "just adding" a bit more depth with pencils so lose that watercolour look. This finish looks perfect for the image, so you were probably right to go for Copics in the end :-) Donna
