Mojo Monday 119 and a little RST tutorial!

Firstly a very Happy New Year to you all. I hope 2010 brings you health and happiness. Many thanks for stopping by here this last year and leaving your comments - they are very much appreciated.

It's been fun having a couple of weeks off work and have a chance to do a bit of creating and take part in a few challenges. This one is for the Mojo Monday - a sketch I haven't done for a while.

I haven't had my rubber stamp tapestry sets out for a while and so had a fun half hour stamping this set. I thought I would try using some Papertrey inks for a change to see how they worked out. There is a quick photo run of how I stamped them off at the end. I'm still not convinced with the two flowers - I took them on and off a few times before leaving them on - what do you think?

Here's a closer look at the stamping. The background leaves are stamped in Versamark on to Spring Moss and Kraft cardstock and the tapestry stamps are on Gina K white card - just love that card as it's so smooth and creamy and takes the PTI ink so well.

If you've scrolled down his far - well done!
If you are a fan of these tiny stamps as I am here is how I did it - do let me know if this is useful! You can see many more great examples on the Rubber Stamp Tapestry blog here and get a chance to win a set

Have a good holiday this weekend!
