Moving House

So have your eyes recovered after yesterday’s explosion of colour? LOL!

Well, I have a much more subtle offering for you today. This uses the fab cover stamp from the September issue of Craft Stamper, which was designed by the competition winner Susan Wherry – well done, Susan, I love your stamp.

I’ve stamped it out on BasicGrey paper and an old book page and used Shimmerz Paints Fire Engine Red on the door and chimney and Sunflower on the string.

Have a subtle but by no way subdued Friday

Stamps – Craft Stamper
Ink – VersaFine Onyx Black
Papers – Basic Grey
Usual Suspects – Scissors; 3D-foam
Other – String; Shimmerz Paints Fire Engine Red and Sunflower

    Hi Kim
    I haven't visited for a while so have a lot to catch up with.
    Managed to get Craft Stamper magazine earlier this week … but not had a chance to play with the cute stamps yet. Love what you've done using the book page and the string adds a certain rustic charm that is adorable.
