Laura and Henri - The Stamp Basket DT

Ooh I'm very late today aren't I?!  I'll try and keep this as brief as possible so I can get it posted before it's tomorrow ;o)  Here's my card for my regular weekly post on The Stamp Basket blog.





Items available from The Stamp Basket

Chalk white seam binding (dyed with inks)


I coloured Laura and Henri with promarkers and flexmarkers.  The hearts were punched with an MS punch that I've not used for ages, flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the sentiment is Pink Petticoat.  I inked around the edges of the papers, and the seam binding was dyed using so many different inks I can't remember them lol - it took a while to get it the right colour.  Dex was fascinated with the whole messy process and thought my stained fingers were very funny :o)

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:

Not too much of my usual waffle today, it's too late!  Except to say - little chicken pox boy finally got a bit itchy today, after a week of spots... eek!

Gorgeous card hon... love those reds! And I bet your fingers were VERY stained afterward!!

So I take it you're reaching for the calamine lotion? Or apparently they do cream now - better I hear!
