Guest DT - Crafting by Designs

And hello again my dears!  I know, two posts in only a few hours, and I'm not even awake! lol.

I am very excited to be able to share with you that I have been asked to be a guest designer over at Crafting By Designs for the March challenge. Naturally I jumped at the chance to join in and create something for this challenge, which features everyone's favourite theme... anything goes!

It gave me an opportunity to play with a stamp I'd recently acquired (though it had been on my wish-list for quite some time!), which is the La-La Land Crafts Top Hat Steampunk Marci.
And to make it that little bit more special, I decided to make an easel card, as I've not made one in many months!


The paper is Kanban (I am sooooo in love with that pad. I'm kinda hoarding it though, as I'm unlikely to be able to find more!) matted with gold Miri card, to match the gold embossed designs in the paper.


Some metal brads seemed the right thing to frame the sentiment...


Some copper coloured ribbon and gold pearls to finish it off...

I really, really enjoyed making this card, and colouring this stamp with my Promarkers. I've come to the conclusion that the LLLC stamps really are a pleasure to colour!

So that's my GDT card for Crafting By Designs. I hope some of you are feeling inspired to play along with the March challenge!

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Sweetpea stampers - Easel card


Remember to be fabulous!
