Good Morning Ladies,
I hope that you are all well, we had a chilly but lovely sunny day yesterday, it makes such a difference.
I have an early start today as I am going to Sophie's Physiotherapy appointment with her, I think that we are all going into town after to do some Birthday shopping, I can't believe that they turn 20 next week !!
Today's card is made using my first attempt at stamping my new Penny Black Peony Stamp, I ordered it a while back and after chatting to Karen the other day I messaged the lady to ask if she had any in, luckily she said that she had one that somebody had ordered and not collected so I grabbed it.
Sue took me over to collect it yesterday and I was itching to have a play as soon as I got home, so I popped it into my stamping platform, inked it up with Memento Sky Blue ink, repeated again and then inked the green and that was it, I absolutely love the stamp, although I admit that using a stamp that doesn't have a full outline was different as you wonder if you have inked it up properly, but I have and I do love the way it looks.
I just added a stamped sentiment, coloured the outside edge of piece of white card with the same ink as I stamped the peony in to create a matching mat, then mounted onto a white card base.
Simple card but quite effective I think.
Oh have any of you been watching the BBC's 'Spy in the Wild' series?! I don't think I have enjoyed a nature program more, the technology that has gone into making those replica cameras is genius, absolutely amazing program.
I hope that you all have a lovely day today,
Love and hugs to all of you,
