Sweet Pea Stamps are having a Design Team Call. I have been truly blessed to have been on the Design Team and love working with the different array of artists that Sweet Pea Stamps have. I love that the images are suitable for cards of any type and also for altered art pieces. This is why I am applying again to join the Design Team. I would love to be kept on for another Design Team term.
Here is a card that I have made using a Ching-Chou Kuik image called "Purple Tender". This image is available as a digital stamp and a rubber stamp. I have coloured the image in with my Graph'it pens and inked around the edge with Tim Holtz's Crushed Olive distress ink.
The backing papers are from my Perfect Papercrafting Companions CD and I have gone for a pink and lime green colour scheme. I have used some round dies, a doly die and my favourite die at the moment, tiny little butterflies. These are from Joanna Sheen's Signature Range and really for table confetti but I love to use them on my cards as we don't always need big butterflies.
I have finished the card off with a stamped sentiment, organza bow, pearl embellishment, stunning Prima flower and some gems.
Just to show that Sweet Pea Stamps are not just for cards, this is a decorated box I have made for my Craft Room to store my Martha Stewart paper clay creations. As my Craft Room has the theme of the seaside there are plenty of sea themed images to choose from over at Sweet Pea Stamps. For my box I have used the Rebecca Sinz image called "Stargazer". It is available from Sweet Pea Stamps as a digital stamp. I have coloured the image in with my Graph'it pens and inked around the edge with my Tim Holtz Broken China distress ink. I have finished the top of the box off with a die-cut lighthouse, spider's web, flowers and lots of tiny shells.
I have painted the inside and outside of the box with 3 coats of gesso and then some turquoise acrylic paint. I have then used some backing papers called "Happy Days" which were on a free CD with the recent Creativity Magazine. I have used various seaside Marianne Designs dies and cut them out and inked through with Tim Holtz's Broken Chins distress ink again.
Now the box is all ready to sit in my Craft Room housing my paper clay items I have made.
