I'm pleased to report that 2 days later I have still not calmed down about my DT-ship with Dies to Die For! I'm still totally bouncing off the walls! I have forced myself to sit still long enough to make a card for this weeks Sketch Saturday challenge though......
I lurve this Whiff of Joy image but unfortunately, it is one I received in a swap a couple of months back and it is quite a faint impression. It doesn't show up so much in real life (which is why I used it in the first place!) but once it is photographed.... it really does look a bit anemic :o(
However..... whilst I am a bit behind the times, I simply adore my new Urban Prairie papers! I've been drooling over them for ages but finally went for it and ordered some gorgeous 12x12 sheets the other day. Are they not divine? Especially with the exceedingly yummy Primas?!
Stamps: Whiff of Joy, Studio G sentiment.
Paper: Basic Grey - Urban Prairie.
Ink & Colour: Memento (Tuxedo Black) and Copics.
Embellishments: Dew Drops, charm from ebay, Prima flowers, ribbon and buttons from stash.
By the way, as you may have noticed, I've just started getting into buttons. The only problem is that I am having a total 'mare trying to get them to stick to my card. They are fine when they are at the 'just buttons' stage but once you tie them with something, they are precariously balanced to say the least. I've tried double sided tape, 3d pads, didi dots, mini dots..... the only option left is to actually stitch them on, which I really don't want to do. So...... anybody got any top tips?!
