Allsorts Plain and Simple

(This is a sticky post scroll down for newer posts)

This weeks its my turn to choose the challenge at Allsorts and the theme I have chosen is
plain and simple
not as easy as you think with the scrummy papers and embelishments available at the moment..

NOw I hang my head in shame as I have had this beautiful Tilda stamp for a couple of months and this is the first time she has seen any ink!!! I love her pose.....
To keep it plain and simple no DP !!
(yes I was very difficult......still not recovered.....)
coloured with good old promarkers (the pinks blend so well) and had to stop my self twice with stickles in hand lol, the sentiment is a see-d's stamp,
and the pretty ribbon is part of a huge stash my mum got me the ribbon is like an organza but has trails of glitter glue and sequins on it (some other packs of the ribbon has strings of seed beads sewn through it) very different from any ribbon I have seen before she got it from the shop she works at which normally sells house hold items for wait for it ..................................19p per pack of 1.5 metres!!!!!!!!!!!!!
if you think you're reading it wrong you better go get your spec's lol!
she bought me quite a few packs (erm ok she cleared the shelf, and they havnt had any more since lol) and as an extra special treat i'm going to give away a little candy 3 packs of glittered/beaded ribbon and a few bits and pieces.....including self adhesive mirror tiles, lace and prima flowers.....

To enter the candy leave me a comment below, become a follower (if your not already one) and  post this pic and link in your sidebar  i'll run the candy till Friday 22nd October and announce the winner on Saturday 23rd October with my Allsorts post.

OMG Emma this is truly beautiful work, I adore the CAS style the more I see the more it appeals to me and you have done a fantastic job with this one I love it. Gosh Emma don't hang your head in shame I have loads of Tilda stamps still in their packets not even opened or inked they go back several months lol.
