Carrie Swan Princess

Good morning my crafty friends and followers

It is lovely and sunny here in Warrington with lovely blue skies and fluffy clouds but very chilly.  A couple of weeks ago I won over at Elphine House challenges and was able to choice 2 stamps as my prize.  I love Elisabeth Bell's stamps and this is my new favourite at the moment.  These stamps came all the way from Australia and took a week to arrive, how quick was that!! 

Another busy day here in Linda's Crafty Piece of Heaven, lots of Design Team work to do which I can't show at the moment but once I get the all clear I will be bombarding you all with my work.  I wish you all a happy crafty day and thank you for all your visits, you make my day.


Recipe & Method

1.  Base card is from Kanban Crafts which is A5 and white.  The base layer is from K & Co from my stash.
2.  Using scraps from my box I have used a piece of Kanban card and using Spellbinder's lables twenty I have cut out the second matting layer.  I have also used the same die for cutting out the topper too.  For the swirls I have used the same piece of card and used Floral Flourishes from Joy Crafts
3.  I stamped the image using Momento ink pad and coloured Carrie in with watercolour pencils.  The grass and the water in the pond I have used Spectrum Noirs.  Using my quickie clue pen I have glittered her wings. 
4.  Before layering the first matt I have added some lace and also made a bow using the same lace.  I have added roses and two hat pins with pearl head.  On the bottom right hand corner I have added some beautiful pearl swirls.


Thank you for visiting today
Hugs

A lovely card, and yes I agree a gorgeous little stamp. I brought a lot home from Oz last year, and they're just a bit different from the 'norm' :)

Thanks for visiting today, and for your good wishes. After another run on the pound for a new battery, the motor is now working as it should, but not before it set off the Tracker alarm. Still, it is good to know it works, and they were ringing us straight away. That is a very pretty card, and a good choice of images. xx Maggie
PS Just taken the bread out of the oven, and the house smells fantastic.
