Happy Sunday! I hope you're all enjoying the weekend. I had my first full week at work since the Christmas holidays, so the weekend break felt sorely needed by me. Mostly I've spent it relaxing and doing some crafting, what about you?
If you're looking for something to do, why not join in the new challenge over at Totally Tilda and Friends? The challenge this time is Easel, Stepper or Joy Fold, just make a card of one of those types, you can use any stamp you want, as long as it's a rubber stamp and not a digi.
I chose an old favourite of mine, Breeze. She's drawn by the very talented Krista Smith of Saturated Canary and available in rubber from Little Darlings Rubber Stamps. I've included links to items I've used at the end of my post.
Anyhooooo, this is what I did with her.
I made the shape with a Go-Kreate die. The gorgeous papers are from the Maja Vintage Summer Basics collection 1933 and 1934. All have been edged with Distress Ink in Walnut Stain and all the layers on the front of the card have been hand stitched with Top Stitch thread.
This is what the card looks like closed, I coloured Breeze with distress ink markers, colours are listed below, and then covered the pink part of her dress with lashings of Glamour Dust. She's a lot more sparkly in the flesh, but as usual the camera has not picked it up so well.
Skin: Tattered Rose, Tea Dye, Aged Mahogany (cheeks) Milled Lavender, Victorian Velvet (lips)
Hair: Antique Linen, Brushed Corduroy, Gathered Twigs
Dress: Evergreen Bough, Milled Lavender, Victorian Velvet
Background: Walnut Stain
The beautiful bling is from my stash.
Lots of lovely embellies from The Ribbon Girl
