New Rubber

As I mentioned below I received an order from Crafty Individuals yesterday. Last night I had a chance to ink up one of the new stamps - it's called Tea at 3 no 389. I fell in love with this gorgeous image and decided my first attempt with it would be to add a little watercolour to it. I can see lots of variations on this and mounted the bird on foam pads this time. I stamped the image in archival sepia to give a softer appearance. I wanted it to look delicate and feminine and kept the colours muted. The edges of the white card blank were brushed with worn lipstick DI. I added a scrap of patterned paper from CI's Springtime pad and a couple of Marianne flourishes. A few days ago I realised how many eyelets I have and I am determined to make use of them so now my eyelet haul has been reduced by 3!


  1. Very beautiful, it has such a lovely feel to it. Hugs Bev x

  2. So very pretty - has such an old timey and homey feel to it. I love it!

  3. That's so pretty - and I appreciate your posting the link on the 'eyelets' thread at UKS so I could see your use of them as a decorative element. Much appreciated - the more ideas the merrier!

  4. A beautiful card, what a fabulous stamp love the eyelets and wonderful colours used.

  5. A very pretty card and a great way to use the eyelets. I have quite a few of those somewhere!! I love the image you used.
