The stamp I used is Reflections from Inkylicious, stamped onto white card with Memento, Olive Grove ink, and then the background coloured with distress ink and ink duster brushes. I cut it with a Nellie Snellen oval die and as it was the largest in the set I drew round the outside edge of the die onto dark green card and cut it out by hand to make the mat.The trellis is cut with a Memory Box die from another snippet of the same green card. The back panel is a snippet of light blue card trimmed slightly smaller than the card front and embossed with a Stampin Up folder called Stylish Stripes. The top part of the sentiment came with the Inkylicious stamp and the Birthday bit is from Stamp tapestry.
The challenges I am entering are Pixies Snippet Playground - Use Snippets
and Dream Valley Challenges - All About Birthdays
Now for my Crochet Ta Da!! moment. At
Christmas my family gave me two lovely Attic 24 blanket kits from the Wool Warehouse, and I am happy to say that I finished the first one last week end. There is a choice of two patterns with this kit and I chose to make the Sunny Granny Stripe one. There are fifteen colours all together and it is very bright. This is a poor photo because there is a rather bumpy bedcover under it. I just put it over the spare bed in order to get a complete photo. I have taken this close up of the corner to show the pattern and the neat little border. I have already started the second one, it is not as bright as
this with one more autumnal shades and a slightly different stitch
pattern. Watch this space!!
Thank you all for visiting here and for all your lovely comments, I appreciate all of them.
