Sweet Selina

Well then... after nearly having a fight with this stamp I finally managed to get it too stamp.. kind of! Had to go over the outline in black promarker which took agessssssss!! I don't know why this stamp won't stamp properly. I get like a negative effect like the ink isn't sticking to the stamp... but anyways, that's another story! If anyone has any ideas tho, please feel free to let me know :)

So onto the card itself.. Going to enter 2 challenges with this card, Crafts & Me - Distressed and Colour Create - Lilac, Blue, White & Kraft I have used "Sweet Selina" for this card..


She's on a 6x6 card which works quite well with the image as it's a small image. An 8x8 card and the image would have looked lost.. The edges of the kraft card is "distressed" with the muted colours.. The twizzly bits weren't quite dry (I was being impatient!) but I stuck them down anyways lol

Well, the stamped/drawn in image turned out beautifully! A lovely card. Sorry to hear about your frustration with the stamp though. I heard someone say that washing your stamps with luke warm water and a bit of Dawn dishsoap works. Never tried it though.

Thank you for joining us at Colour Create Challenge. :)
