Patchwork Polly

With patchwork being one of my first true crafts I just had to have this set.  I love coloring in rubber stamps and these ones from Crafters Companion are a dream to work with.  The images on the easel card to the left were stamped onto smooth card and coloured using pro markers.  I mounted a square of pastel glitter card onto some pearl cardstock, cut and embossed the main image using a neastability die and ran a promarker around the edge to tint it slightly before attatching it and the other embellishments with silicone glue.

The card on the right was made in a similar way to the above but the images were stamped onto watercolour card and painted using a Big and Juicy Vibrant Primary ink pad.  I wasn't as happy with the 'feel' of the images done in this way although the effect was good.  The die cut main shape was cut into two and then the bottom hung onto the top using little coloured jump rings.
