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
