I was umming and ahhing what to use for the 3 images in the Ismaki sketch this week when I realised it was staring me in the face on my desk! I've had these cute WoJ 'Alison Acton accessories' images stamped out on my desk for a while now waiting for me to use them when it dawned on me they were the perfect size! I even managed to incorporate the 'heart' option (centre of my punched out flower). I've used non-girly colours as I am seriously lacking in 'non-girly' cards even though i couldn't resist adding a flower!

Stash used:

  • Images: 'fancy cake', 'champagne cooler' & 'presents' all WoJ stamps
  • Colouring: copics & a bit of stickles for sparkle
  • Papers: BG 'Offbeat'
  • Others: square nesties, EK retro flower punch, M Stewart heart punch

Ooo just received my DT stamps from WoJ (they are gorgeous - just wait until you see them) so can't wait to get cracking with them but I've also got loads of gorgeous new stamps recently that I want to play with too including my other DT goodies - just not enough time is there?!! (. . and before you suggest it, no, 'cutting back on the rubba' is NOT an option LOL :D)

Have a good weekend.

Great card Fran and your colouring is wonderful :0)
No no no, one can't cut back on the rubba! trouble is there is so many wonderful new stamps coming out and not enough money to go around. I have spent the past 3 days with £30 burning an hole in my pocket and not a clue on which stamps to choose....I want them all lol.

Hi Frances, you made a great job of this sketch!! I've been wondering what to use with this sketch too, and so far "nothing" has won!! Can't wait to see the WOJ stamps....and I know how you feel with all the new stamps...I've had a lot recently and am still buying more even though I haven't got through my new ones yet!! Hope you're having fun with your new toys!! bx

Oh these are a perfect size, fab colours too. I agree cutting back on rubber is just not an option.
