Hello everyone its Vicky here running late again. I actually forgot I had not put my post on & went to Ikea to get more storage for my craft room.......my wrists have been slapped!!!!
How have your weekends been? My was eventful you could say......my hubby went fishing & nearly drowned thankfully he was helped by others.... Then the following day he became ill & has been really ill all weekend....Thankfully tho he is alright now & on top form again.....phew!! So what turned out to be bad luck was in fact good luck cus I have my hubby here with me instead of it been much much worse!!!
Well that was my weekend. So here I am to show you a card I've made with a stamp available at
I did have a little time over the weekend & I mean a little lol.....so I decided to get my distress inks out obviously I'm still in practice mode on these.....I tried months ago but havnt used them since. Well I wanted to use a sweet pea stamp from the artist Ching-Chou Kuik but give it a different look.....so this is where the inks came in.....I went for soft colours & vintage-y...is that a word???
Anyway here she is she is called 'The Silentness'
Isn't she so beautiful & just chillaxing there........ooohhh wish I was chillaxing outside on a lovely warm summer day.......anyway back to reality. She has been painted with Distress Inks which made a nice change.
I added diamond dust stickles to her wings & bits of flowers. I also edged her wings with silver liquid pearls which looks fab in real life.
The flower at the bottom I made myself & added a pearl button to the middle.
The paper is Prima 'Botanical' which is a new released pad & OMG the paper is gorgeous, I need another pad just for stroking!! All edges were distressed with my stressy tool & inked with Vintage Photo. The punched edges was made using a MS punch around the page set.
Now if you have been over to the store today you will have seen that Teresa has released
Jasmine Beckett-Griffith so if you are wanting any of these beauties get yourself over there quickly cus you wont want to miss these. The other new releases will be released very soon. Teresa has her hands very full at the moment as her daughter is poorly......so her time is with her daughter as we can all understand.
So sending her daughter huge get well hugs for her to get well real soon. You can still place orders & they will be dispatched as quickly as possible.
Well thats it from me for now. Dont forget we still have our challenge 'Red' over here if you fancy entering 1 of your fabulous creations....there is still time.
So I will say tatty bye I'm off to have a romantic night with my hubby.
Thankyou for stopping by huge hugs to you all.
