Hot Cross Buns


I was sorting out some stamps and came across a set of Forever Friends Easter stamps I bought reduced after Easter last year and had completely forgotten about. As I want to get ahead with Easter cards for craft fairs thought I would ink some of them up and here is the first one. I am out of my comfort zone with this green, just not my colour at all but the paper is lovely and sparkly and I do like the finished result.
Image - Forever Friends
Medium - Copics
Papers - First Edition Spring Feast
Die - Spellbinders circle
Punch - MS trellis
Flowers - Prima
Pearls - The Hobby House
Sentiment - freebie stamp
Ribbon - from stash
