Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge-DT-My Call!


Yes, its Saturday again and Bank Holiday Weekend here in England (hooray)! and that means another challenge over at The Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge. This week I've the privilege of setting this weeks theme and I've gone for a very easy option "Flowers". Now spring has finally sprung I thought it was an appropriate choice. I love the image on this card, I've coloured it with Copics but it was a RAK and I haven't a clue what the stamp is. I'm thinking Penny Black?, so if anyone knows the name of the stamp or where it can be purchased, please let me know as I feel I really need this in my collection!! I've gone pink and green again, seems to have been my colour of the week put put it all away now so expect something different next time, just love this combo though, so complimentary. Used different shades of pink bazzill and my new Martha Stewart Punch (another). Paper is BG and punches from L-Em for the leaves and the Retro Punch for the flowers which I've edged with a green chalk ink pad. Spacer, velvet brad and crochet flower from stash and the stitching detail is a tape runner which I purchased at Ally Pally. I'm also entering this card into this weeks Crafty Creations which is sweet and yummy. Please do come join in with this weeks challenge, think we all have flowers in our stash somewhere. They could be made from punches, stamps or even handmade. I'd love to visit and see what you create!
Have a super duper weekend and hope the weather is kind to you!

Frances said...

Aww, this is so cute Claire. Happy belated Birthday! The image is a Penny Black one, called 'sweet slumber' but it's an old one & I think it's retired but if anyone can get hold of it it'll be Dick at HM stamps over in the US (link is to the page in the catalogue on his site) as I've just read on there that he is starting to get all the old retired lines available (not sure about this one but he's very helpful). HTH
Have a good weekend, Fran x
