This week is my favourite time on Sweet Pea Stamps. Before I was on the Design Team I used to long for this week whereby the Design Team would make a card/creation using the same image. I was always amazed how different the cards were. Now what amazes me - and I still have to pinch myself at times - is that I am part-and-parcel of this wonderful Design Team so I get to show you my creation I have made.
Here is a close-up of the image with the Fran-tage. I still struggle with this stuff blowing off even though I heat from underneath but at least I am getting more staying on the card!!! I have coloured a chipboard die-cut petal shape with a Rose Bud Memento ink pad. I then stamped in black Versafine "Happy Birthday" using a freebie stamp and embossed with clear embossing powder. I then used a peg stamp and the same Rose Bud ink pad and stamped around the edge. I have finished the card off with a Tim Holtz butterfly border die which I have inked with Tim Holtz's Tumbled Glass and Peeled Pain distress ink pads, doilies, gingham ribbon bow, flowers and gems.
