For my card today I have used one of the new Elisabeth Bell stamps – this is Honeybee and isn’t she just the sweetest little poppet!!! And Ann has come up better than trumps with this Spell It Out scrabble tiles set – I have been after something like this forever so this is one set of stamps that will be a permanent fixture on my desk! I tell ya when I saw it was being released I was thrilled to bits!!
The delish paper is Nitwit Collections Sunshine and Laughter collection. I tweaked the saturation settings though as I wanted a more grey blue rather than the bright baby blue, I am really thrilled with the gorgeous shade I managed to get printed, and even better it matched the flowers to perfection. I am not a yellow fan so desaturating got me a lovely creamy colour to match the antique linen used to colour the image. I am SO anal about colours matching lol. The blue in the paper matched the Stormy Sky ink that I used to colour the dress – I’m a happy bunny it all matches haha
And of course the stunning flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts … where else?! I used a 40mm trellis rose, 25mm cottage rose, aster daisies, 10mm roses, stamens. The little white daisies will be in stock at WOC SOON The lace is also from WOC as are the pearls. The mesh butterfly was a in a surprise gift from the lovely Jacque – thanks sweetie xx
