"Live Your Life in Colour"
There's a new craft shop in Ballymena - wayhay! It's called Gemini Crafts and the lovely lady who runs it, called May, is as mad and enthusiastic about papercrafting as me! We could hardly stop talking long enough for me to buy some crafty stash, but this card has a few things on it that I bouight from her. Also, she sells Pan Pastels and IndigoBlu stamps, as well as loads of distress stuff, so you can imagine I am very happy about that! So, a big shout out to May and I wish you every success in your venture.
The background for this card is in monotone and stamped with the same stamps as the main panel.
I love the IndigoBlu nature stamps, and reach for them constantly when stamping. This poppy meadow background stamp is just gorgeous. The scene is coloured with pan pastels, stamped in versamark and the ink rubbed with more pan pastels to get a soft, colouring effect. Diecuts and the grey lace are also coloured with pan pastels. The soft green lace is the colour that it was when my good friend Lee gave it to me - she scored some real vintage lace, and it's wonderful stuff!! Thanks Lee :-)
