Featured Stamper Sunday!

Another Lazy Sunday and REALLY it shouldn't be! I have SO much to do before I go to CHA, but I couldn't resist playing the Featured Stamper Challenge over at Splitcoast. Today's stamper is Lori Craig, aka Stamp_Momma I have had the opportunity to meet Lori and she is a lovely lady and her Gallery is just gorgeous. Hop on over and have a peek if you have some time and want to whet your appetite for creativity.

I was inspired by many of the cards in Lori's Gallery, but particularly attracted to this one
As you know, I have been fiddling with my sewing machine lately and I am LOVING it. So this was just another opportunity for me to practice my stitches!!!!!

I used BG Blush DP as my foundation for the Card, along with Prism and SU cardstock. Martha Stewart Border punches added a little interest. I also used Creamy Caramel and Chocolate Chip ink to distress everything! I wanted a dirty, vintagy look, so I pulled out my air arttool from SU and splashed some black over the image after colouring and sponging it. Zipping on a little Dazzling Diamonds Glitter brought some Pizzaz back!!!

Here's a little close up of the image. I used the butterfly stamp that is an accessory in the Pat the Dog Stamp Set from Our Craft Lounge. He is such a cute little guy!!!! Hope you all enjoy your Sunday!!!! I am off to Cheer Jon on in a Bowling Tournament and then home to do some dreaded Laundry!!!!!!

See you soon!
