My First Stampin Up UK Order

Got my goodies yesterday, Soft Subtles paper and markers plus the Mixed Bouquet set. This is my first play with them.
I'm not very fond of peachy, colours so thought I'd use the Apricot Appeal first to kind of get it out the way. It's all a bit labour intensive at the moment as I haven't yet got any of the inkpads. Had to use the markers to ink up the stamps for the background and to add an inked effect to the edges. I'm really happy with the stamping and colouring just which I'd used the Bashful Blue and the main card colour and the Mellow Moss as the accent.

I think this looks really great Julie, your hard work has certainly paid off. These SU products seem to becomming very popular at the mo. You've done another fab job, hope your inkpads arrive soon. xx vicki xx

Wow! I can't believe you only used markers to ink up your stamps - it's beautiful. Your patience was worth it. :) Beautiful card. Hope you get some ink pads soon. I wound up getting the smaller "mini" pads in just about all of the colors and that has worked for me. It's certainly more economical for me, since I'm not a demo. I did buy some of the larger pads that I use the most, but I love the smaller ones. Happy stamping!
