Not The Best Advert

Hello everyone, where has Sunday gone then?  I suspect that the wee nappette I had with Vince cuddled up might have had something to do with it, or someone has put the clocks forward a week early.......

I was so excited to get my new bundle of rubber yesterday that I couldn't wait any longer to have a play.  Best laid plans of mice and squirrels and all that, the end result is not the best advert for this stamp!

This is one of my new Stamping Bella Uptown Girls - Jayden Loves To Journal
Painted with Distress Inks (ReInkers) on Bristol Board
The fabulous sentiment comes with the stamp
Some horrendous ink distressing around the edges and a couple of Visible Image ink splats
Joanna Sheen Calligraphy backing paper on a 5x7 card base

I think I need to send a written apology to Stamping Bella

Hugs to all, Squirrel xx

I don't know what you mean, Squirrel - I love the inky edges and think the splats are brilliant with the pen and paper theme!

Josie said...

Ohh, a lovely card and a perfect sentiment for a Sunday evening as we start thinking about the week ahead!

Sarah said...

That nap took something with it, if your not happy with this, it's PERFECT. OK? so there!

Oi. Zip it. I love this card. The colours are fab. The ink splats are a really nice touch. As is the text paper. If you don't want it, I'll be happy to have it! X

I love the ink splats and the handwriting on the background. Those are nice touches to an overall fabulous card. I don't think the distressing looks horrible. You be crazy.

Annette said...

I'm obviously looking at a different card to you as this one's lovely. Love the ink splats too. The sentiment is so beautiful, and the girlie is adorable. I've not used any of the Stamping Bella images yet.

I have absolutely no idea why you would think this wasn't a good showcase for this stamp - are you crazy?!
This is absolutely brilliant - the texty DP and inky splats are just perfect and your colouring is fab.
I think I would go so far as to say this is one of my all time favourite cards you have made... so there!
Oh and I'm in love with these new Stamping Bella stamps too... nearly my birthday... must hint to Dr Hubby!
Big hugs, Kat xx
