Cute Kids at Crafts4eternity

This week over at Crafts4eternity our challenge for the week is "Cute Kids" we are looking for you to make any sort of project that features kids. I picked up a bargain stamp from Ebay some months ago now but haven't actually got around to using it so as it fits in with our theme this week felt it was time I inked it up. The stamp is Sweet one Collage from Cornish Heritage Farm.
 I have stamped the image 3 times using archival ink black,potting shed & coffee and cut the first 2 images down to create 1 image I then matted it onto kraft card. For the sentiment I have ripped wording from 7gypsies Lillie tags and crumpled with the inclusion, using Tims label letters, of the word and to make it make sense. The background has just had a light brushing with a dry paint brush of antique linen distress paint to breakdown the white.
So if you fancy making a child themed project this week come and show us and play a long at Crafts4eternity this week. Our kind sponsor for this weeks challenge is Crafty Sentiments Desgins who are offering 1 randomly chosen winner their choice of 3 digital stamps.
Hope to see you over there
thanks for popping by and visiting

  6. I like the scrunched up appearance of the papers and the overall colour palette.

  7. Love that triple stamping in the graduated colours, Amanda, and the crumpling of the pages with the words is so effective to add extra texture - great idea, and a great card.

  8. This is fabulous Amanda! Love how you created a triple image in different shades. I spotted this on Pinterest the other day also, so you have other admirers! Keeleyxx

  9. I LOVE all the torn edges and the simple warm colour palette of the natural looking materials! I also love the repetition of the image! A stunning make!
