As you may - or may not - be aware, I absolutely love anything cutey-fied... so, it's absolutely no surprise that the new characters from Country Companions, bought to us by Docrafts, was on my 'need to have' list as soon as I saw them!
These are quite small stamps, so absolutely perfect for those little cards you want to make, but as you can see, they are a beautifully stamped image, which are honestly an absolute doddle to colour in!
Here's my card.
I have taken the opportunity to get my mitts onto the Vintage Notes papers again - love love love this range so much!! Such beautiful delicate colours and isn't this background blue rose paper stunning??? Did I tell you I love it?!
As you can see, the Vintage Notes has a wonderful textured feel to it too. The colours are delicate, the patterns soft, quite perfectly pretty vintage! I scratched around the edge of the papers and card layers with the craft knife (blunt of course!). A few gems just finished the label off.
You like my flowers? Well.. you can buy these too.. ready crocheted and ready for your cards. I can do these, but why would I waste a valuable 20 minutes when this is all it would take to finish my card?
I added some of the new fab Bakers Twine to the button too as a decoration. The buttons are Vintage Notes too - a mahoooooosive bag of multicoloured, multisized buttons at a totally ridiculous price! Go check it out... you'll see what I mean!
The leaves were cut freehand from a folded green card, then run through the ribbler to create the veining.
Isn't he the cutest little thing? I've coloured him in with the Artiste brush markers - the vintage colours were perfect for my little guy. Once coloured, he was then matted and layered onto white and blue to match in with the card.
I have linked to all products within my post so you can check them out.. I really hope you like my card. It will be making an appearance at a demo near you soon! lol.
Until next time,
