Design Divas OBG Blog Hop

Design Divas Blog Hop Badge

It’s the Oldies But Goodies Blog Hop today!  The day when we share what we have made with at least one thing that is older than six months.  It’s always nice to pull out the old stuff and become reacquainted.  If you are following the blog hop, you should have arrived here from Joanne’s blog Sleepy in Seattle.  If you would like to start at the beginning, you can start at Melissa’s blog Inkclinations.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAFor my card, I used Sew What, a House Mouse stamp.  When I first started stamping, I was so in love with the House Mouse stamps and I have so many of them that have never even seen ink.  This is one of them.  I colored it with prismacolor pencils and gamsol.  The patterned paper is “old” from Guide Lines paper pack and I am using it with the “new” Royal Velvet color.   The seam ribbon was hand dyed and really is a purple color that matches nicely.  I just couldn’t capture the correct color in my photo (same with the bunny).  Don’t know what’s up with that, but I am open to any suggestions to correct the problem.  All of the supplies I used are listed below.

The next stop on the blog hop is Mary’s blog, Sparkly Train. 

Have a fabulous day!

this is such a precious little scene, I love the HM stamps!

I know exactly what you mean with the purple color...I have matching lavender ribbon & doilies but they always look blue. I tried increasing the different primary colors on my camera but it didn't help at all. I know there is some great photography secret out there just haven't found it yet! lol

Hope you're having a lovely week!
hugs & blessings

I pulled out one of my House Mouse stamps for this blog hop too! This is so sweet. I don't have this one, but I am like you, I bought a bunch when I first started stamping and they haven't seen a lot of love lately.

I love all the purple here and the different sized pearls too.
