Sweet Stampin - Lots of Layers



Good morning - I hope everyone has smashing plans for the weekend! :)

Todays card is for our new challenge over at Sweet Stampin where this week the theme is 'Lots of Layers'.  We are sponsored by the wonderful Sew Sweet who are giving the winner a £10 voucher to spend online and also The Stamp Fairy, who generously gave the DT some of the cutest digi-images to play with! :)

My image is called Patsy - April Showers and she was just adorable to colour.  I hand stitched and inked the edges of MME paper and just added some laser-cut wooden flowers, twine, printed sentiment and dew-drops.

I will be entering this card in the below competitions:

Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes
Moving Along with the Times - Cute as a button
Deep Ocean Challenges - Spring - I'm going for showers! ;)
Penny Black and More - Springtime - Again, showers :)
Totally Papercrafts - My Favourite Things - Dies and Punches
Totally Gorjuss - Anything Goes with a Button

Thanks so much for checking out my blog today, and I hope everyone has a brilliant day :)

Hi Alison, love love love this card. I made a card with this image and I cut out each of those tiny raindrops!! I love the colors used and your coloring is fabulous.

Beautiful as always.

Paula (PEP) said...

Super dimension you coloured into that umbrella & her coat really looks shiny. The raindrops are picked up beatufiully by those gems on the wooden flowerheads & I love the way that the meshwork patterns of the various papers are echoed by your horizontal trellis strip as well as your stitching (the twine picks it up too - the more I looked the more I saw!).
Hope you're having reasonable weather.
