This is such a pretty set that I hope that the photos on here do it justice. I've decided that I should just relax and 'go with the flow' so to speak when I sit down to craft. Been a bit guilty of getting stressed out about doing things the way that everyone else does and it's started to stifle the old creativity. So more of my hand made backing papers are a key part of the projects today - along with a first play at shrink plastic; now that was fun!
These are my DT items for the Pixie Cottage Challenge where there is a gorgeous sketch and a theme of anything but a card. As I wanted to make a set of things today, I've used the sketch on the card and made a matching basket for the non-card item.
The gorgeous stamp that I used as the main focus of the card is 'Greetings' by ARTish. These flower stamps that she created for the Pixie Cottage Store are amongst some of my favourites because they are really versatile. I also stamped the image up onto shrink plastic and made some matching embellishments. I wanted to create a bit of interest with the shrink plastic, so whilst it was still warm I made sure it curled like a flower rather than laid flat. I'll definitely be using this medium again because these are such sweet embellishments.
