Ismaki #20: 'Sweet' Candy

I was lucky enough to win a Sugar Nellie stamp last week when they were giving candy away on their blog in the run up to the release of their new range of stamps, 'Sweet Art Ebony'. Well it arrived today and what a beauty it is too. Luckily I managed to buy the others at the weekend when Funky kits released them before some of them sold out (but don't panic think they will have more in later this week) and I got email today to say it's been sent so I will be stalking the postie tomorrow as I am soooo in love with these stamps.

So obviously I wasted no time in inking up my candy and used the new Ismaki sketch

to make this up (I just flipped the sketch): Materials:

  • Image: 'Pickin Apples' Sweet Art Ebony range of Sugar Nellie stamps from Funky Kits Watercoloured with distress inks and a touch of stickles.
  • Papers: from English Paper co pack. Used Circle nestabilites for the image and scallop. Circle card made using my Fiskars circle cutter. Just cut small straight edge along bottom so that card doesn't roll away!
  • Others: 'sweet' heart is cuttlebug embossing folder. flowers & brads from stash.

Even the horrible weather won't bother me now as it'll be perfect for staying in and crafting =) Have a good evening x
