Try Something Different..........

An advantage of being on a Design Team is that you get to play with stamps that you probably wouldn't buy yourself, and I have to be honest, while I admire her artwork and talent, these new images from Leanne Ellis aren't really my style, But I am always ready to try stuff out. They are available from Funky Kits now.
I had a play with some bits I'd not had out for a while, my i-top, t5he swirly punches and I have to say made a conscience decision not to use my promarkers. I really enjoyed working with this image.

I used the Crumb Cake Ink Pad from Stampin' Up, and stamped the image! Then I used a waterbrush, and pulled out some of the colour, to given a very soft painted effect!

I stamped a very simple sentiment onto a tag I cut using a new Spellbinder Die I have! Then added a few pearls!! ALso I over stamped an image and dotted around the edge (not really sure while!!!)

I created a few floral blooms using the i-top, and some Early Expresso DSP from Stampin' Up!!

And here is my final card!!

I added a few extra Early Expresso Swirls, pearls and a taffata ribbon.

Hope you like.

Its always worth having a go with something different, Take Care.
