Hark the Herald

Wow, where has this week gone?!! In spite of a busy week I had a chance to snuggle down in my craft room this afternoon - a large mug of hot chocolate and my Gossip Girl box set were the perfect companions to some inky fun:) (BTW any more GG fans out there?!!)

I've been making some cards for Taylor's sketch challenge - it's a fun one:

And here's one of my cards - I am making an effort to use some unloved stamps at the moment and as soon as I saw this yummy Cosmo Cricket Paper I wanted to pair it with this angel. I decided to flip the sketch around as I thought the angel should be facing inward.

Stamps - Trumpeting Angel (Cornish Heritage Farms)
Ink - ColorBox chalk/Antique Linen Distress Ink (Ranger)
Card/Paper - Vintage Cream (PTI)/Pure Poppy (PTI)/Jolly by Golly (Cosmo Cricket)
Other - sewing machine/scallop edge punch/buttons/linen thread

Thanks for visiting today!

Aimes said...

BEAUTIFUL! Yup, definitely making fab use of the unused stamps! I'm glad you flipped the sketch a little - he looks so much better facing in!
