This week I have two card to show you, the first one I have the honour of using this gorgeous set from our Monthly Sponsor Cornish Heritage Farms called 'The Glory of Easter' What a fabulous set, these stamps are such a pleasure to use, they ink up so well.
The panels either side are distressed stripes - how appropriate with this Easter image - 'by His stripes' we are healed.....yes, they have been inked and attached with tarnished eyelets, The photo corners have been added with brads.
I love this sentiment and used my Ticketed Punch (that my DH hunted 4-EVA to find me last year) and inked around it in Distressing Ink - you probably know this, but just incase I will tell you - I ink almost everything in Distressing Ink - I always have 'inky fungers!'
Now to show you this weeks sketch - this is a great one to work with and you choose this one or the CAS version here.
My second card is quite different, more 'whimsical' I love the fact that the same sketch can look so different depending on the image and youre creativity. this darling little 'Eris the Elephant' ( well, maybe not so little IRL) is from our weekly sponsor this week, Angela at Sew Many Cards - Eris is just adorable and won my heart from the first clink on the site.
I have coloured her with SU Chalks and a Blender Pen, cut her out and popped her up on foam dots. The side panels are NOT INKED (imagine that!! LOL!) but are layered onto black CS, as is the main DP.
I have added ribbon and the gorgeous flowers that were sent to me by Sabrina (aka okimom2girlz) who keep me supplied with the white flowers - thank my friend - you keep me going! LOL! I have added pearls either side to give the impression of corners!
Here in Australia we just LOVE baby elephants right now, we have had 2 babies born in our zoos in the last year - the lates addition is a little girl born earlier this year - awww - they are so adorable and we eagerly watch any footage of them we can - they bring our house to a stand still and to absolute silence - which is a MAJOR achievement at the best of times!
