The main inspiration for this make cam from the images & my brand new Prima paper pad, which I had just fell in love with!!! I may even go as far as to say its one of my all time favourites. Such fabulous designs & I am really, really diggin the style of it at the mo, which I think has in turn effected my style in a most excellent fashion. This is the second make from this pad & they have both had a simelar feel which I'm mega pleased with (scrolldown for tht ohter post named 'Whoopsi Daisy 'Things with Wings' challenge.
The beautiful image has every bit of quality, style & class you would expect to find in a leading rubber stamp brand, with all the conveniece & flexibility of a digi. I LOVE IT!!! - No really, I can't tell you how much I'm enjoying working with these digi images & my new Copics, which I am beginning to get the hang of now. This will be attempt 3 & this time I've tried blending colours of diferent hues.
I ordered the Copics & paper pad amongst other things from Bunny Zoe store & was v.v.v.impressed with my order. Its an internet based craft store, stocking all the leading brands, specialising in stamping, papers & much much more. Its a really trendy, bang up to date store with jaw dropping products & inspiration of how to use of the highest level. I am constantly blown away by the work from the stores desiugn team which is cleverly displayed in the side bars at the store for convenient & exciting inspiration! Defo worth checking out... Bunny Zoes Store. If you are based in Canada or the US there is a store named Stamp & Create which has simelar products, style & ultra modern feel. ENJOY!!!xx
