Published in Craftstamper Magazine!

Hello everyone, I hope you are doing well.  I haven't been around in blog land much as we have been busy and so crafting hasn't been on the agenda these days.  

I don't have anything new for you today but thought I would show you this design that I made in the Spring.  
I was honored to have this card published in the April 2015 edition of the fantastic Craftstamper magazine.  It's been a few months so I can now show it to you.


The background was inspired by Anneke De Clerck's design in the February 2015 edition of Craftstamper.   

I used a Tim Holtz stencil with Distress Inks rubbed over top, spritzed with water and then used as a 'stamp' over the background.   The pretty image and sentiment are from Chocolate Baroque's Fluttering Hearts stamp set which I coloured using the same inks with a paint brush and water.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great week,
Shirley
