Sweet Pea Stamper Challenge - Monday 7/6/10

Over at the Sweet Pea Stamper Challenge this week the topic is "aqua and brown".  I've used this combination a few times and liked it.  I have used my favourite stamp at the moment - Ching-chou Kuik's Forest Blue Sweet Pea Stamp (Sweet Pea Stamps available at Crafts and Me).  I'm not sure why she is my favourite stamp at the moment.  I have coloured her in with Promarkers and have even given her cool aqua and standstone brown hair.  I cut around the image and mounted the image onto two of my new Nellie Snellen dies, one of which I have distressed with Tim Holtz's Brushed Crdhuroy Distress Ink Pad.  The flower backing sheet I have stamped myself with my Romantic set of See D's Morsel Stamps in various shades of blue and various shades of brown.  I then decided to get really messy and got out my Dawn Bibby Golden Glitz Shimmer Spray.  I liked the sheen so I punched two different shades of brown off-cuts (the papers are from Crafty Ann's Digi Shop) and also spritzed them as well.  The card is finished off with 3 aqua grommets, fibre, Marianne Designs flower, gem, two butterflies cut from some backing paper and a tag sentiment.

This card also fits the following challenges:

Sir Stampalot - Punch it
Crafty Angels - Favourite stamp
Lots to do - Birds and wings
Everybody Art - Things with wings.
