I am really enjoying making cards with these cute stamps. They are so easy to colour and the detail is fab. I had a few ideas floating around in my head for this image but when I saw Debbie’s fab Magnolia card I knew what I was going to do. Debbie kindly let me pinch her fantastic idea of using die cuts for waves and I then added some tiny shells and gold mica beads to create a sea bed. I wanted the frame around Mimosa to look like a porthole so I used my hole punch to score some circles and I’ve used some gardening twine to finish off the nautical look.
I'm going to enter this into this weeks CCT challenge which is to use punches and dies.
