My first play with a Bildmalarna stamp!

Afternoon Peeps!!
I am a bit late popping in today as my mum called me on the way home from dropping Mo off at school and we popped out for breakfast with Scott as I needed to pick up a new wing mirror he had ordered for the car.
So its a new challenge over on the FAS challenge blog this week and Ruth's sketch is an absolute stunner. I LOVE layers and this one is just perfect. Here it is....
Don't forget you can flip it round and resize the sketch, as long as we can see it in use on your project we are happy bunnies!!

I have never used a Bildmalarna stamp before so you can imagine how excited I was when one was just sitting there in my Dies to die for DT pack, squeeee!!  This one is Mimosa Hat and she is so sweet.
I decided to use her and inked her up in Memento Rich Cocoa for a softer look to the stamps edges and then coloured her up with this little pile of promarkers...
The little butterflies floating around the edge are from my Memory Box Butterfly delight die and the little 'Thank you' sentiment is from the Die-Namics airplane greetings die and stamp set. I ripped it along the bottom because it always looks sooo good when my gorgeous friend Pops does that, I am all for trying new things today!!

I have popped this card on E-bay so if you want to buy it here's the link :)

So don't forget to pop in on my awesome teamie Ruth and see what she created using the sketch.
I have 2 loads of ironing and another load in the washing machine to get done now so feel free to rescue me from the pile of doom!! he he he!!
Thank you for popping in on me
