Olivia and Peter at Sweet Peas

Aletha here with a little piece of art using one of my favorite stamps from one of my favorite artists at Sweet Pea Stamps.

Meet Olivia and Peter from Norma Burnell’s Fairy Tangles ArtCollection. I found Ms. Burnell’s art while I was surfing the web for Zentangle patterns. I fell in love with her style and I was hoping that a rubber stamp company would start the ball rolling on manufacturing the stamps. When I found out that it was Sweet Pea, I jumped for joy.

I stamped Olivia and Peter with Memento ink on Cryogen cardstock for coloring with my Copics. After die cutting her with a die from Spellbinder’s A2 Curved Matting Basics A I distressed with Frayed Burlap.

The designer paper was a scrap. The other dies that I used were Spellbinder’s Bitty Blossoms and SCACD’s Alice’s Clock. This was distressed with white Viva D├ęcor 3-D paint.

Don’t forget about our challenge at One Sweet Challenge. The theme is to use buttons and ribbons as embellishments. You can use any stamp you want, rubber or digi, but for the “larger” prize you must use an SPS image.

Thanks for stopping by. If you have any questions, please contact me.
