It was Heidi's from the Simon Says stamp company's birthday last week and in celebration the Simon Says Challenge blog is aiming for at least 200 entries for this week's challenge, which is to follow Iris' sketch. If the DT manage to get over 200 entries then Heidi will send each of them an extra present. I've been lucky enough to win candy from Simon Says, thanks to Heidi's generosity, so here goes with my entry for the challenge, I hope to enter a second time if I can :).
I had some beautiful new stamps arrive from Lili of the Valley on Friday, a shared order between myself and my blogging friend Vanja. I mostly got Christmas stamps but I couldn't resist this girl and her dog sitting on a swing. The image is coloured with a mixture of Copics and Promarkers, I've used Adirondack Lemonade ink sponged onto the background. I used Pea Green Copic pen on the flower centres and the organza ribbon, as well as edging the sentiment. The papers are Basic Grey Porcelain, the large blooms are Hero Arts with plain white flowers used for the green coloured centres. Thinking of You is a Craftwork Cards oval white card sentiment, again I've used my Copic (skin white) to colour it. The cream edged ribbon and the green organza ribbon are from stash. Love the new stamp, it took longer than expected to arrive but it was worth the wait.
Happy Birthday for last week Heidi!
