I've been Loving the Stampotique creations that I've been seeing hopping around. To me there is an eclectic mix of bright colours, fun and a little bit of grunge in the projects I have been admiring... reet up my street. I have been really inspired by the wonderful owner of the Kathrywheel blog, her journal soup classes are just Awesome. I hadn't yet had a try so I treated myself to 2 new stamps and I have just been loving playing with them . I was further inspired by one of the challenges at the Stampotique blog, use stitching, way way outside my comfort zone.
I am so super chuffed with how this turned out :) My eldest daughter is taking her GCSEs and I am consumed with thinking of her and her friends and what difficult time of life this is for them. I love how this card is still fun and girly but not too cute and young for a teenager, I think the stamps really help with this.
I had no idea what I was doing when I started making these flowers. I just twiddled the string around caught it upwith the needle and fastened them off . They really add cool dimension and texture. it's something I will definitely be having a go at again .
I completed the card by using a faux stitch die down the side , and a hugs and kisses die.
Again my apologies for being so late, hope you like it .
