From the Heart Stamp of the Month Challenge

I am a big fan of progressive freebie challenges, not only do you get the following month’s image free but you have a whole month to come up with an idea! From the Heart this month gave out a new image from their Hamlet PigWit range.

Materials used:
From the Heart Stamps Stamp of the Month: Hamlet PigWit Being Shy
Copic pens
small note acrylic stamp
sheet music block acrylic stamp
Adirondack black archival ink pad
snippet of black card
5 inch square white card blank

Method:
I sized and printed out the image and the greeting I wanted to used then used the Copic pens to colour him in. I stamped the music block onto the front of the card blank, fussy cut Hamlet and stuck him on. I trimmed the greeting and matted it onto black card before attaching it to the card base.

I had printed out several copies of Hamlet so turned the extra into ATC cards as I am running out and have a small pile of books from the United Kingdom Stampers Network to add too.

Thank you for dropping by. Take care.

About Pippa

I started crafting at an early age though not always successfully, my pillowcase tennis dress has, thankfully, disappeared into history. Funnily sewing is not something I enjoy! My favourite crafty activity has to be card making, especially stamping which I have been doing for over 20 years and am still a beginner, there is always something new to learn. I also enjoy knitting and crochet. I am not an artist, cannot even draw a straight line with a ruler, but I love colouring in, which is why stamping appeals so much. I am married, have recently retired from being a part time HLTA at a local village primary school, have two grown up daughters, both married and a mad cat called Finnegan. That, in a nutshell, is me.

    Pippa, both cards are gorgeous but my favorite is the first one. The note DP fits so great with the saying and your coloring of Hamlet is fabulous.

    Thanks for joining our FREE Stamp of the Month April Challenge @ From the Heart Stamps !!
