Make and Take


I popped in to my local craft shop at the weekend to pick up a cuttlebug and they were having a make and take day - make a card using the stamps etc and throw 50p into the jar. I thought I'd have a try at this stamping on stickers and re-arranging them milarky, as I've never done it before - boy was it hard to stick the diamonds on straight afterwards but I like the results. Background stamps by Hero Arts and main image by Penny Black, which I coloured with markers and did a bit of huffing :) I sent this to Pam for her birthday.

This is a great effect! I can see it would be harder than it looks to line it up but you've done a perfect job.
