Make The Day Special And Kuretake

Ok so who stole Monday? It disappeared and suddenly we are in Tuesday – which one of you took it? Oh look there it is, it slipped under the cushions on the sofa – D’oh!

Phew – well now we are back in order here is my Tuesday make and this week I’ve used Make The Day Special stamps with Kuretake colouring and stamping to give:

The background Gingham stamp is one of the Unity {Ippity} Fall 2010 releases and you can get an idea of the coverage of the stamp as it is mounted on an A6 sized card.

I used ZIG Art and Graphic Twin 29 (which is a red) directly onto the stamp with touches of Antique Burgundy from the ZIG Calligraphy range and stamped it onto white card.

The woman is the ‘You Are Loved’ stamp from the Unity Suzi Blu range that you can get from Make The Day Special.

I’ve coloured her with ZIG Art and Graphic Twin pens with a couple of touches here and there of the ZIG Calligraphy pens.

A quick tip for you – the ZIG Art and Graphic Twin pens work perfectly for changing colours of ribbons, I’ve used some Seam Binding Ribbon from Ribbon Girl coloured with ZIG Art and Graphic Twin 29 to get a matching ribbon, and if you are like me and are challenged in the bow-tying department then remember to check out the Bow-Easy template.

Right, I better get on and try not to lose Tuesday down the back of the sofa too!

Have a fabulous day you all!
