Tug of war
I couldn't resist this stamp when I saw it and felt it was calling out for bright, vibrant colours. It is 'Annabel - tug of war' from Lili of the Valley. Is Annabel about to fall in the puddle? I coloured it using Promarkers and after cutting it out with a Spellbinders wavy rectangle die brushed the edges with distress ink. I then matted it onto core'dinations cardstock cut out using a Spellbinders label 1 die. I haven't used different shaped dies together like this before but in this case I think it works.
The striped paper from DCWV was matted and layered onto a paler shade of core'dinations cardstock and white card. I then matted strips of spotted paper onto core'dination cardstock, attached the ribbon round the ends and fixed to the card in the form of a cross. I then fixed the image on top of this and added card candi to the corners and different sized gem stones to the top and bottom. Finally I attached a bow to the centre top of the card.
