Flower Vase

Sunday, 7 September 2008

I've recently bought the Walk in my Garden cartridge. I decided to have a play with it and came up with this card. There is so much on this cart, that's it's really hard to decide what to cut first.

Materials used - Cream Card Blank, Basic Grey Papers, Autumn Leaves Clear Stamps by Rhonna Farrer Swirls, Ribbon, Half Pearls, Chalk Ink, Sentiment Rub-ons

Stamps from Nepal

My sons girlfriend, Sam has recently visited Nepal where she was shadowing doctors, learning how they treat patients. While there, she bought me these gorgeous stamps of an Ostrich, Giraffe and Butterfly. They are made of wood and are all hand carved. The card is also handmade. The colours are so rich with a splash of gold.

I had a play with the Butterfly stamp. Above shows what the stamp looks like. I really like it, quite different from what I've seen in the shops.
