Featured Artist Week: Norma J Burnell - Aletha's Card

Hi all! Aletha here with an inspiration piece from Sweet Pea Stamps (SPS).

We have started a new “Artist of the Week” venture that will happen one week out of every month. Our artist for this month is Norma J. Burnell and her Fairy Tangles rubber stamps. My inspiration piece is created with the beautiful rubber stamp “Sapphire.” I was itching to touch my Copics to this tangled fairy.

Copics used:
E000, 11, 13, 15, 17, 19, 31, 34,
E35, 37, 39, 42, 43, 44, 47, 49
G40, 82, 85, 94, 99
R02, 05, 08, 20
V09, 12, 15

After trimming Sapphire, I distressed the edges with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink and then layered with purple and Kraft cardstock. The designer paper is from my stash, as are the nail heads. That delicious die is SCACD’s Dandelion Knoll Corner.

This week SPS is reducing the price of Norma’s Fairy TanglesArt Collection by 15%, which is a steal! SPS’s red rubber stamps are the best on the market. Before any are shipped, Lynette makes sure that your stamp gives you the cleanest and most precise stamped image.

Thanks for stopping by! Be sure and visit every day for more inspiration from the talented SPS Design Team.
