Pootlers Design Team - Lovely Stitching Week 1

What's black and white and red all over?  No, not a penguin with sunburn!

It's my card for the Pootlers' Design Team.  

Each Thursday in August I, and three of my team-mates (you can find out more about us at will be making something using the same stamp set - Lovely Stitching.

I have to be honest, this wasn't a set that caught my eye in the annual catalogue and I had a few minutes of "what am I going to make with THAT?" before the ideas started coming.  The word "Lovely" caught my eye, and then I associated it with the phrase "Lovely as a tree"...then remembered the tree die that's in the Thoughtful Branches set...which I decided looked good as a silhouette so I decided I'd make a card in black & white...then decided that a pop of colour would be good...and the old joke "what's black & white & red all over?"  came into my head - and there we are.

As well as the die from Thoughtful branches and the stamps from Lovely Stitching I used some of the letters from the Labeller Alphabet, Real Red and Whisper White card, and Real Red and Basic Black ink.  (If you want to see the card being made, there'll be a tutorial on my YouTube channel soon- there's a link over to the right there).

Thanks for visiting - come back again soon!
