Petals and pearls

Over on the allsorts blog, the theme is petals and pearls. I've used a popcorn bear stamp which I won a while ago. I haven't used it much as it is quite large and I don't have a large enough acrylic block to fit it all on comfortably. I also find that it is hard to get all of the stamp printing cleanly. Anyway, back to the card. I've used a colour scheme that is a bit unusual for me, but I think it works with the delicate pearls.
And yes, I will make sure I link this properly to the allsorts blog!

Hi Nikbee

You are right, the colour combo works really well, all perfectly put together.

If I have a stamp too large for a block I use either a plate from my cuttlebug or a biscuit tin lid, both work fine.

Thank you for joining in my Petals and Pearls theme at Allsorts this week.

Hi Nikki

I too have this stamp - but it hasn't seen any ink yet !!! I hope it looks as lovely as yours once it does. Such a beautiful colour choice.

I stick my large stamps onto an empty CD case.

Love Jules xx
