Just Believe Grasses


Can't stay away from the Just believe set at the moment.  Although I haven't touched the surface of the set, there are actually 9 stamps.  Must try out the others next time! 

However today I've used the large grasses stamp.  First of all I inked it with pear pizzazz then using my blender pen I coloured directly onto the stamp with ink from daffodil delight and marina mist ink pads.  Using the blender pens give a water colour look to your images.  Very soft and gentle which suits these colours. 

I tore the top corner and distressed round the edge of the whisper white using the blade of my scissors.  Very therapeutic, I can assure you.  I used a piece of designer series patterned paper from Sunny Garden to go behind the main image and attached this to a rectangle of marina mist card. 

Now, twine seems to be the in thing at the moment.  You can order linen thread in the catalogue at £3.75 so I think this will be added to my next shopping list.  For today I used normal string but split it in half and wrapped it round the bottom of the panel and tied with a knot.  

The sentiment is from Occasional Quotes.  I stamped it in marina mist and punched it out using the decorative label punch.  I then tucked it behind the panel before attached all of this to the pear pizzazz card base.  

If you would like any of the items that I've used today to make the above card then please e mail me on ails300@btinternet.com I'd be happy to help. 

I hope you enjoyed looking today.  Thanks for all your comments I really appreciate them.
