Red, white and blue is the patriotic colour choice over at Less is More this week and I've had a fab time playing with my new Pedal Presents stamp set. I think it's my new favourite. At least until I open my next set...
In fact I had so much fun I made three different ones - all one-layer - with the various basket combinations. Come and have a look:
I think the first one's my favourite and I definitely prefer a shiny red bike to a shiny blue bike! They were very straightforward to make: simple stamping and colouring in really. Most of the colour was added direct to card, but for some bits I picked up the ink with my blender pen to soften it. I grounded the last two with a Crumb Cake marker.
Stamps: Pedal Presents (hostess set from the Summer Mini)
Ink: Basic Black, marker pens in Real Red, Poppy Parade, Island Indigo, Marina Mist, Crumb Cake, Basic Grey
Card: Whisper White
Other: white gelly roll marker, stamp-a-ma-jig
If these supplies or any others have caught your eye, please do not hesitate to get in touch with me by email or by phone on 07977 141605. I'd be delighted to place an order for you and have goodies delivered directly to your address in the UK.
As well as Less is More, I'd also like to enter these into the 'Cool Britannia' challenge over at Moving Along With The Times.
If you're in the UK, I hope you're having a lovely bank holiday weekend. We are having a relaxing day today after a busy Saturday. We had a barbecue in our garden for our church and we had 25 people come. It was fantastic fun but hard work too. We have a cream tea tomorrow afternoon too and I have been very busy researching and preparing a display on Queen Elizabeth's 60 years which has been fascinating. I really do have a renewed appreciation for her. I'm so glad it's all done ready now though as I can put my feet up a bit!
Thank you for visiting - do pop back again soon!
