Lady Guinivere

Hello bloggers!

I am glad to see I am not the only one having problems leaving comments - seems lots of us are struggling so apologies to you all from me.

I am unsure abut this card as it is a bit too different for me as you will see.  I also mucked up when I stamped the safety pins - will see if you look closely - Sweep (my crafty kitten) decided to jump onto my shoulder at that precise second and I dropped the teenie weenie stamp right down on top of her dress!!! Of course it had to be already inked up too didn't it?

Colouring her with my good old PMs, I used Nic's (or tried to use it) tip on how to create a different looking background - as this is my first try at this I am reasonably happy with the outcome.  I used red crinkled paper, black glossy paper and white cardw with safety pins stamped on to tie in with the others.  To get the real pinned on look I masked a small part of the pin stamp and am very pleased with the look of them.

There is no closeup - too easy to see the mess I made boo hoo.

Lady Guinivere stamp from Funky Kits,
PMs used Ivory, Blush, Dusky Pink, Cool Grey 1, 2, 3, 4 & 5, Henna, Cinnamon, Caramel, Sandstone, Cardinal Red, Ruby & Poppy;
All papers from stash;
Ribbon and brads from stash;
Safety Pin stamp from See D's Vintage Morsels from The Range.

I am entering this into the following challenges:~
Sketch Saturday's current sketch;

Thank you all for your continued support!


  1. Lovely card Sheila. Fab image and colours. You could cover Sweep's artwork by stamping the image again and layering over that area of the image :o) Lisa x

    PS. I'm on Firefox and haven't had any blogger problems, might be worth trying to see if it sorts things out.

  2. Hi Sheila
    Love the card. Its gorgeous. Lovely image and colours. I love the masked pins.

    I've no idea if I've got blogging problems as I've not been blogging lately. If this comment works and I've got firefox too.
