It's a lovely bright crisp morning here with not a cloud in the sky.
We are still in a Valentine mood at the One Stop Craft Challenge and we want to see Hearts and Flowers and a touch of ribbon on your projects this week. Please pop over to the challenge - there is lots of fabulous inspiration.
This is my take on the theme for the challenge.
I have used Art Journey stamps for this card. The background flowers is from the Butterfly Wishes plate and the main image and sentiment from the Precious Moments plate. This range of stamps is fabulous, and although I do not have many they are certainly among my favourites, and the service from the Art Journey store is second to none.
My background is inked with distress inks and them I have stamped the flower over the top in the same colours as the background - a technique that Liesbeth shared with me. I have edged all round the background with distress inks in Vintage Photo to close the background in. The main panel has a distress ink background again, and is stamped in archival ink. This is mounted on to a black background. The heart is die cut, and I have a small seam binding bow to finish off.
At OSCC we have two sponsors this week:
Art Journey are very generously offering two beautiful stamp plates as prizes
The Ribbon Girl who are offering a £5 ribbon voucher with postage paid.
