I loved this stamp that came with the Making Cards magazine last month and the bright and cheery papers that came with it.
I chose to create two cards using the stamp and colouring them differently.
The first one I went for a shabby look. I mat the paper onto some coredinations card which I had sanded the edge of. Also I distressed the edge of the paper first.
Then I stamped the image onto Very Vanilla and coloured the image with Inktense blocks and a waterbrush. Again I distressed the edge. This time I took the wine glass paper and brushed it with a stencil brush to give it some staining and make it less white.
I added the gorgeous pleated ribbon and tucked the paper and image behind it.
I then added the sentiment too.
The next one is more bold and I coloured the image with promarkers. The sentiment for this is from the Half Full stamps as I thought it worked well with the focal image.
I love the use of circles with the dotty paper!
So there are my two girly best friend cards. Fun and love how different they look.
