SWEETPEA DT INSPIRATION BLOG







Why not join in with us over at Sweetpea Inspiration  - We are having a week of presenting this week's stamp - each DT member will be showing casing this stamp.  Don't forget to check regularly to see what each member has come up with!


 Here's mine inspiration using the map stamp from Teresa Sherman's sheet 8, Plate 217 -  and I've used another Sweetpea stamp Joanne Schempp's Ancient One with it.  I've had this Pirate stamp for some time now and not used it so thought this would be the ideal opportunity.


I must admit this has all been totally out of my comfort zone but funny doing.



Techniques:

Medium:   Copics, Prisma and Polychromo pencils, Distressing Ink pads, glitter and gel pens
Papers:    My Mind's Eye Paper pack
Dies used:   Marianne shell dies,
Embellishments:  Twine, fishing bits, Eyelets, faux brads
Best wishes,
Challenges I'm entering this into
