Twins

I do love Forever Friends but because they are wood mounted stamps I tend to forget about them as they are stored separately from my rubber and acrylic stamps. I thought I should make a card for twins to add to my stock for sale and this little stamp was just perfect. I kept the colours neutral and lemon so it could be used for girls or boys. They have been coloured with Promarkers and Flexmarkers and die cut with a Nestie. The papers are Tim Holtz Vintage Shabby and I have used DI Antique Linen. I punched holes and cut little slits out in the strip of paper so it looks like memo paper. The word Twins was made using some glitter rubons I bought years ago in Poundland. I added some ribbon, bows and tiny buttons.
