New Rubber!!

I stamped - yay!!  I couldn't resist the sketch challenge at Just Add Ink this week and plus I was dying to ink up my brand spanking new set from the Summer Mini - Aviary.  I am rapt with how this card turned out, this was one of those times when it came out looking exactly the same as it it did in my head, if you know what I mean :)  I also LOVE this colour combo: Old Olive, Tempting Turquoise and wait for it ...... Elegant Eggplant.  Now here's an interesting fact:  I have never used Elegant Eggplant before - TRUE!   I don't own the ink pad so I had to use a marker to ink up the little bird.  I was determined to use it and I am so happy that I did, I don't know why I waited so long.  If you're wondering how I made the scallop edge, I punched out 4 circles of Tempting Turquoise cardstock and mounted them under the  Whisper White and trimmed the overhanging cardstock.  You can use whatever size circle punch you like, I went with the 1 3/4".

Still showing you my old cards, ho hum....  This one I made at a catalogue launch a couple of years ago and was designed by Nicki Tidbold.  I don't own this set (sadly I can't buy them all), but it's very cute.  Incredibly simple card, you could easily swap the images for a set you already have, change the colours and even swap the square for a circle if you don't have square punches and come up with a completely different look, I might even try that myself if I can ever find time to stamp again :)
