Twisted Thursday - or spot the Shirleys2Girls stamp


I've made a fairly simple card for the Shirleys2Girls' Twisted Thursday Challenge this week, which is to follow the sketch and to use raffia or twine. I always like to use a S2G stamp for their challenge if I can, so where is it?

Yes, it's the large background stamp called Peace Page, isn't it stunning? I'm quite sad that quite a bit of it is hidden by the layout. I've stamped it onto plain white card with Cocoa Brown Memento ink and I've used Distress Inks on cut and dry foam in Spiced Marmalade, Mustard Seed and Worn Lipstick to colour it. It goes with the Artylicious DP with butterflies on it. All the papers were matted onto a bronze metallic paper, the butterfly is punched from it too; the sentiment is from Elusive Images and I've used twine around one of the pieces of DP. Well ok it's a thick thread, a posh twine if you like:).

I'm also entering the One Stop Craft Challenge this week, which has the theme Autumn Inspiration. The lovely Indian Summer that we've been enjoying has broken over the weekend and today was grey, cold and drizzly. We need the rain and all good things come to an end, the colours in the card remind me of the autumn sun we've enjoyed until now.
