Read all about it..... Alota News!

Another blistering day here today. I couldn't sleep last night it was much too hot so I made this. I received my monthly Sarah's cardmaking kit yesterday and used it straight away. Some gorgeous colours in this month's kit!

How lucky am I to use stamps that I love for free? I received these ones in my Alota DT package. First of all I stamped the Alota news stamp onto white card and then I made a mask of it as the middle is left blank. I masked it off and then stamped another one of the Country Girls in the middle. The girl is coloured in with prismas and zest it but I sponged the newspaper with cream and raspberry chalk inks. I then layered the image onto 2 lots of contrasting card. The papers, ribbons and embellies all came with the Sarah's cardmaking kit. The Happy Birthday sentiment is another Alota stamp.

Stamps:- Alota
Papers:- Sassafras - Life is Beautiful

I'll be back later to show you my Spoon Full Of Sugar DT card. :0)
