Creative Inspirations Challenge

Here's my entry for the Creative Inspirations Challenge.
I hope you all like it as I've always wanted this stamp and only managed to get hold of it this week!
It's such a shame Stamps Happen is no more as I love their stamps and have loads of them, including D.Morgan.



Pale peach fleck A4 cardstock scored & folded in half.

Trimmed A5 yellow & pink spotty paper

21cm x 3cm of pink spotty paper by K&Co Tim Coffey's Young Girl collection.

21 cm of 1cm wide satin ribbon in yellow.

21 cm of paper lace.

10cm squ pink slub mat for layering stamped image

8.5 squ piece of Pale peach fleck card for stamped image.

Two shell buttons.

Three flecked blooms.

Three pearl 'drops' for centre of blooms.

24 cms of pink twisted fibre.

1 eyelet brad

'The Shell-picker' by Stamps Happen

Staz-On inkpad in Timber brown

Hero Arts Shadow Inkpad in Sand

Variety of pens for colouring the image.

Five 3D squares

DS tape



Take the folded A4 and adhere the trimmed yellow/pink spot paper taking care to centre it.

Take the lace and adhere along the yellow ribbon, then the yellow ribbon along the pink spotty paper strip. Edge with the Sand inkpad.

Adhere the resulting strip to the horizontal centre of the card.

Taking your 8.5 cm square, stamp your image with the Staz-On and colour.

I used Marvy-le-plume in brown,dark brown and Rosewood for the hair.

Zig Photo-Twins in Rosewood, Blush Pink and Peach Glow for the skin, shading with Marvy Rosewood and a small spot of Dusky Pink on the cheek.

The dress is in Marvy Daffodil Yellow and shaded with Marvy Yellow

The lace is White Souffle

The ribbons are Marvy Dusky pink shaded with Wine and blended with Zig
Blush Pink, glittering with Tiara Red.

The sand is a mix of Marvy Pale Orange and Zig Peach Glow, Honeycomb and Rosewood, shading with Marvy Rosewood and glittered with Marvy Just Glitter in Gold.

Edge the mat with the Sand inkpad.

Edge your 10cm sq of pink card with the Sand and adhere the image to the
pink mat.

Pierce top left hand corner of pink mat adjoining image and attach brad.

Adhere foam squares to the back of this mat.

Take your pink fibre and your two shell buttons and thread it through the holes.

Adhere the buttons to the top right-hand corner of the image. I used a little Gel-glue for this. Leave to dry for about 20 mins.

When this is dry, adhere evenly spaced toward the right of your yellow/pink spotty paper. Thread the end of the pink fibre through the eyelet of the brad.

Now take your three blooms and adhere them with the glue-dots evenly spaced down the left hand side of it. Pop a pearl-drop in the centre of each.
