Kitchen Herbs...

Hi everyone, hope you're having a lovely weekend so far.

If you're coming to the Stamp Magic show at Doncaster Dome today then make sure you pop along to our stand and say hello.

I have a card to show you today using the Kitchen Herbs stamp. This is one of a range of  designs that were new to us a couple of months ago and it did take me out of my comfort zone a bit, but having used them I have to say I love the whole set.

I used papers from one of the new Cosmo Cricket pads and core’dinations card
The little brads are Tim Holtz and although this image doesn’t lend itself to lots of girlie embellishments I couldn’t resist using a few flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts, these are cosmos daisies 

 The sentiment was printed on the computer and the dies I used are Spellbinders large deckle edge rectangles
The ribbons, twine and heart are from The Ribbon Girl

I used Promarkers to colour the image and then tried a bit of shading with some PolyChromos pencils, I’m just starting out with this technique and am far from mastering it so don’t look too close at that bit!!

Hope you like my card and that it's given you a few ideas, make sure you stop by tomorrow for another amazing card from out guest designer for June and if you get chance then I'd love it if you'd have a little visit to my own blog here
