Stamp of Approval - Young at Heart.

After much umming and ahhhing I gave in and purchased Catherine Pooler's StampNation Stamp of Approval Young at Heart collection.  With the NZ/USA rate of exchange it was a tad expensive here in NZ.... but when it arrived WOW was I impressed!!!!!!!!!!!! It's a stunning collection of goodies.   I can see many many cards coming from the box.

Here is my first one:


I started by using the stencil to first ink with Squeezed Lemonade then moving the stencil and inking with Wild Honey ink.  I went dark in the top corner and lighter towards the bottom.   I stamped  the cake with black ink and die cut it.  The icing was cut and then used the Wild Honey to colour.   Used the larger sentiment and some sequins to finish.

What a stunning card Dawn - sounds as though the 'box' was a good investment - despite the exchange rate and the postage!
