SWEETPEA DT INSPIRATION







This is one of the recently released stamps from Conie Fong called PUPPY LOVE.  This is one of the four stamps (Conie Fong's sheet 3, Plate 204) available here.






I must add I have just purchased the perfect edges and perfect square for cutting perfect matting and layering etc. although as yet  I haven't quite got the hang of them.  I'm in the middle of trying different craft knife's and cutting tools.  So far I have had no luck with the Tim Holtz craft knife as the blade isn't deep enough so the blade doesn't go deep enough and you finish up sawing away to cut the edge!  I've also tried a rotary cutter which I originally bought for cutting fabric - again I'm not to skilled with this either.  I have found that both work ok if using very thin cardstock but struggle with cardstock of 300 gsm.
Will update you on my progress!





Techniques:

Medium:   Copics and Spectrum Noir, Prisma and Polychromo pencils, Black pen
Papers:    My Minds Eye Paper Stack, Co-ordinations, PVA glue for faux pearls
Dies used:   Spellbinders Corners
Embellishments:  Word Sentiment, Pearls, Flowers, 3D sticker - butterfly, Ribbon
