Happy Friday everyone, it's the weekend soon ..wheee!! and that can only mean one thing, it's time for my inspiration piece for Dies to Die for.
Today I'm using the delightful 'Boho Chic' a Dollhouse stamp from Little Darlings Rubber Stamps.
This is my first time using one of the Dollhouse collection, but it certainly won't be my last, I just love them! In fact you'll be seeing more Little Darlings Rubber Stamps shares from me. I was going to wait until my first official post for them, but since Angie mentioned it the other night in the LDRS Facebook Group, I can't wait any longer to tell you that I've joined the Little Dralings Rubber Stamps Design Team!!! How cool is that? I have to say that when Angie asked me if I would join the team I barely let her finish the sentence before answering yes yes YES! I was just a 'bit' excited :P So look out for my first post for them in April. I have to say there will be more of these lovelies available in May and you will NOT want to miss them, I'm in love with them already.
My choice of which stamp to use was driven primarily by the paper, as soon as I saw this fabulous flowery MME paper that came in my DT pack, I knew which stamp I wanted to use with it.
I've listed the products I've used at the end of my post along with links to take you directly there.
I coloured her with my Distress ink Markers.
Skin: Vintage Photo, Worn Lipstick.
Hair: Antique Linen, Walnut Stain
Outfit and Bird: Festive Berries, Mustard Seed, Black Soot, Evergreen Bough, Bundled Sage
I used the new LDRS Dewdrop Circle die behind her, isn't it fab, look at that gorgeous embossing.
I thought this MFT die echoed those pinking edged circles on the paper perfectly!
The sentiment, which is also from LDRS, is framed by a Scrapberry's frame embellishment. These come in white but I colored it with one of my Copic markers, Tracy has only just got these in stock at Dies to Die for (lucky me I got to use one first!) but they should be available on the website really soon, maybe even this weekend :)
Before I go I just wanted to share one more bit of news with you (if you're on FB you will probably have seen this already). I got published! Very exciting and I'm just sharing a pic of one of my magazine posts below.
How exciting is that? It was for Die Cutting Essentials magazine. Not my very best work as it was a very last minute request, but still very exciting to be asked and find yourself in print.
On that note I'll bid you all adieu, but I will be back in a very short while with another post.
Take care! :) xx
