pink baby hAnglar & stAnglar

Just love the fact that I can now buy some hAnglar stamps, I've been wanting some of these for a very long time!

This week's recipe at Crafts 4 Eternity is:

The sketch

Nursery theme or image

Add a charm

I'm also entering this into the following challenges:

'X is for Xtra Dimension': ABC Challenge.

'Circles, Paint & Gems: If The Shoe Fits.

'Nice & Girly': Bunny Zoe Crafts.

Papers: Basic Grey ~ Green At Heart Just love the gorgeous colours in this set of BG papers.

Image and baby sentiment: hAnglar stAnglar ~ baby set. I coloured the image with copics and added some stickles to the white bits.

I stamped the sentiment onto the pink paper before embossing with UTEE and then placed a Tim Holtz ~ Ornate Plate over the top. The aperture was just the right size for the baby stamp. I dabbed some white paint randomly on the plate and it now looks like the raised parts are shiny. Pure fluke on my part!!

I've added a bit of lace on the right hand side and hand sewed on the buttons. (How comes I can happily do this on cards but don't want to resew buttons onto shirts??)

On the left I've used a Martha Stewart punch.

I created the hinge from my Sizzix Tim Holtz Hardware Findings die which I ran through my Big Shot Pro. Just LOVE my new machine! Added some crackle paints and gem brads.

Thank you for your visit.


PS Looking forward to the 30 degree weekend!! Wooohooo!!!
