I used the Postage Stamp punch (that I feel is going to become a firm favourite) to create a patchwork effect background. I cannot speak highly enough of SU punches - they are so easy to use with no need to stand up to give it extra welly! I coloured the bloom with my Stampin' Write marker pens and look how gorgeously crisp the image is:
The Everyday Enchantment papers are mostly using the In Colour range of colours, but I don't have these markers yet, so I used the next closest alternatives to coordinate with the paper. The sentiment is stamped in Old Olive, with a couple of lengths of linen thread tied around the middle. This was all then mounted onto Sahara Sand card stock and popped up on dimensionals.
Stamps: Fresh Vintage, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Ink: Real Red, Baja Breeze, Pumpkin Pie and Old Olive markers, Old Olive ink pad
Card: Whisper White, Sahara Sand
Paper: Everyday Enchantment Designer Series Paper
Other: Postage Stamp punch, linen thread

Yesterday I went up to Edinburgh to see an Italian friend of mine who is over in the UK. As she is supervising a school trip, I accompanied their visit to Holyrood House which is a fascinating place. It's a long time since I've heard that much chatter in Italian though! The highlight of the day had to be when one girl asked me if Italian was my native language! I was chuffed to bits!
Thanks so much for stopping by today,
