Definitely not weather for walking in any meadows here - cold, wet, windy - just a normal day's weather!
We're a bad lot us crafters - we see something, fall in love with it and absolutely HAVE to have it even when we don't need it!
That's how I was with the Wild Rose Studios range of 'Annabelle's Meadow' stamps - they were just so pretty and of course I didn't NEED them but I WANTED them! I did exercise some restraint - and only bought one (Feeding Birds) with my gift voucher from a challenge win - only because the others were out of stock...shhhh - will be notified by e mail when the others come back in......!!!!!!!
This was one of those very rare occasions when I bought something and inked it up within twenty minutes of the postman delivering it. Out with the watercolour pastels and just sat and painted - very therapeutic! Can't tell you how much I enjoyed colouring it - loved it.
I lightly distressed the edges of the image before mounting onto the background.
The papers are all from Pink Petticoat, stitched and layered.
I used some pink lace from my stash and a pearl buckle to create the bow.
The smaller pale blue flowers have been in my stash for ever so thought it was time I used them up! The pink and blue cherry blossoms were from a challenge win.
Stuck a pink and white pearl hat pin and a small pink diamante pin into the flowers and added 3 pink pearls to the top of the card.
I found this little pink ladybug in my stash - something else I have had for a long long time!
Same papers stitched and layered inside and I think you might be seeing some more of this stamp - cos I love it!
