WoJ and lil bit of crochet

Here's another cute WoJ wedding stamp, this one is the fab wedding carriage which just cries out for flower soft only I don't have the right shade of green so just used it for the bits of flowers and I also made my own little flower bouquet (top left) - supposed to look like Willow's just thrown it out as they head off to their honeymoon :)

Used the sketch over on WoJ for this one (but put my sentiment in bottom corner rather than top left as it didn't look right on mine).

  • Images: 'wedding carriage' and sentiment both WoJ stamps now available here
  • Colouring: Copics. For the background I left the nestie on after cutting out and sponged distress ink in 'broken china' and 'dusty concord' around image to create the background. (I also cut the wheels of the carriage and placed above the nestie edge prior to running through cuttlebug so that it fits outside of the frame - probably not explaining very well but there are tutorials around if you need it. Think Katharina did one a while back)
  • DP: old Making Memories pad, 'Lauren'
  • Others: Lace, fuchsia flower soft (bit of green wire and florist tape to make mini bouquet), pearl brads, MS heart punch


Cold's a bit better today but still not 100% so been taking it easy and been doing a bit more 'Amigurumi' crochet. I'm finding it very addictive as you basically only need to know how to do a double crochet stitch (or single crochet if you're American), so very easy. Here's a little bear I made (the fact his ears and limbs don't match in size doesn't really matter I hope LOL) I just stuck the bottle of stickles next to him so you'd get a sense of the dinky size that he is. He's a bit rough around the edges but I hope it just adds to his unique charm :)

I'm attempting to do a little hello kitty next, so will see how that turns out.

What a beautiful card Fran. The flower soft works really well, and I love the sponging/distressing in the nestie shape.

It's gone awfully dark here as I type and we've got heavy thunder...I'm expecting the rain any may go in your direction next!

I love the little bear - what a cutie! It does give him personality. I want him!!! Think you should make more and sell on etsy :)
I also love your card - very different with the strong colours. Awesome.
