My favourite place to be

I love the sweet sentiment on the stamp I used today:
I used:

- 3.75" x 3.75" square white card stock - it's Hunkydory, really very thick and substantial at 300gsm too. You don't need card this thick and heavy, especially with postage rates these days but at about £17 for a collection of 100 cards and envelopes ranging right from 8" x 8" down to teensy ones from Create and Craft TV I got drawn in :)

- the little image is by SU from the 'For the Birds' set, it comes with the sentiment on the same stamp although that could always be masked off when inking the stamp then the mask removed before stamping of course. Coloured with Whispers pens, for speed and as it's just one layer I really didn't want to take time backing the inside to cover Pro Marker bleeding

Crumbs, that's all there was to it!

Am entering this into the current challenge over at Less is More where the theme this week is 'Round and round' - ie. things with wheels, moving parts or even a card with something that moves on it such a slider card. That's one I really do want to try again - when there's time to play.

A cute little stamp and lovely sentiment. Bleeding through is the one down side with copics. It is why I nearly always end up using at least two layers - not good for posting to UK! Kate xx

Lovely card. Yes, the bleeding through is a big downside to copics and pro markers, but I do love using them much more than other markers.
