(Sorry the photo's a little dark ... just like the weather here in the South West of England at the moment, LOL!)
Happy Tuesday everyone! Sorry I've been MIA for a little while - lots going on, mojo decided to take a holiday, etc.!
So this week at Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps challenge we want to see you make something using your favourite SCRS image.
I can genuinely say that each and every one of Sparkle's stamps has a special place in my heart, so this was an incredibly difficult challenge for me in that I spent AGES trying to decide which stamp to use! In the end I settled on the beautiful Charlotte with a Rose. I seem to come back to her time and time again, and she is so perfect for paper-piecing (which I love to do!).
I paired her with some yummy new Echo Park Country Drive Collection Kit paper from Kitty at My Mum's Craft Shop - it's SO pretty! (The green gingham paper is actually from the Sweet Summertime Collection Kit - I love that you can mix and match different ranges from EP).
I also got to try out my new Die-namics Mini Rolled Roses die from My Mum's Craft Shop. I used the smallest die to cut out a white paper rose. I originally made a pink rose, but the card I had was too dark and I didn't have any paler pink card, so I opted to use a pink flower under a white rose.
If you hop around the SCRS DT's blogs today you will see that Kim and I have used the exact same image ... and have both followed the same sketch (Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 126)!!! This was purely by accident, LOL! I didn't know Kim had chosen Charlotte nor the sketch until I was uploading my card to our DT group!! Hee hee!! Greats minds and all that, eh? ;)
To finish the card I used some gorgeous ribbon, twine and a button from http://www.sewsweet.co.uk/
Here is a list of supplies, complete with links, should you wish to do a little retail therapy:
