Accessories!

Hi folks, Louise here,

I'm back today with another card for you, it's using one of the stamps you've seen before but don't worry there are more to show! I wanted to use this Annie stamp because she looks so lovely sitting on our treasure chest! Yes treasure chest! As well as our adorable Annie images there are things for her to sit on, well we can't have our little angel being uncomfortable can we?

Take a look...

When I drew this image I just knew she would work well with a nautical theme so I was keen to try it out. I was so please with how well her stripy socks went with the light houses.



The words Little treasure were made with rub on lettering, have you found that rub on lettering is difficult to fit correctly into the space you have? I bet you've all used it and found yourself running out of space as you reach the end of your paper, it's annoying isn't it? Well here's a tip for you. Where possible always apply your lettering before you cut into the card/paper THEN do your cutting! It sounds really obvious doesn't it but so often the obvious things come as an after thought when it's already too late.

I'd forgotten I had these little charms but they work perfectly on the lock don't they! I probably got them from Charmed Cards and Crafts because that's where I get most of my stash but I can't be sure... Karen??? The paper is; English Paper Company - Nautical.

Thank you for looking,

Louise xxxx
