Spread sunshine

The code word on Addicted to CAS this week is "sun" so I searched my stock to find a suitable stamp. The one I have used was a free one from Craft Stamper magazine. The background is done using a Tim Holtz technique which you can see on his blog. I like the water coloured effect it produces. I machine stitched around the background to link this to the stitching on the circle.

Materials used:-
Tim Holtz mask - Harlequin
Distress inks - mustard seed, spiced marmalade and picked raspberry
Sun stamp - Craft Stamper
Sentiment - Hero Arts "Anytime messages"
Dies - Lawn Fawn for the circle and Die-amicus for the banner

Thank you for visiting my blog!
