Sweet Pea Stamps - Kym's Weekly Post - 9 March 2014 - My Final Post for Sweet Pea Stamps

Here is my last post as part of the Sweet Pea Stamps Design Team.

Due to recent events I am leaving the Sweet Pea Stampers Design Team with immediate effect.  I wish all the Design Team well and am sad to be leaving.

I have used the Sweet Pea Stamps image "Irish Chic" by Joanne Schempp.  It is available as a digital stamp and rubber stamp.
I recently made a card with this image and went for a green colour scheme (you can see the other post here).  This time I have gone for a red, white and blue colour scheme.  I have coloured my image in with my Graph'it pens and inked around the edge of the image with Tim Holtz's Aged Mahogany distress ink.  The backing papers were Docrafts I think for the Olympics.  

I have finished the card off with some handmade flowers with brad centres, sentiment, die-cut fence which was inked with Aged Mahogany distress ink and some red/white twine and some blue/white twine all twisted together to make red, white and blue.
Here is a card I have made using the Sweet Pea Stamps image called "Kitty Love" by Regan Kubecek.  It is available as a digital stamp.

I have coloured my image in with Promarkers and inked around the edge with Tim Holtz's Crushed Olive distress ink.  The backing papers I was given.  I have finished the card off with some raffia ribbon, flowers, gems, Craftwork Cards die-cut sentiment and a Spellbinders butterfly.
