I just invested in a set of 24 Derwent watercolour pencils. Now these are the absolute best. Artist quality. I was worried I wouldn't be able to do these lovely pencils justice.
I'll let you decide if I've done a good enough job.
The stamps are Micia - a Taiwanese brand that have become popular here. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality. Unlike the made in China equivalents, these stamps were deeply etched and of thick quality clear rubber. They feel a lot like their made in the USA counterparts. For RM49.90, it's pretty much value for money (because clear stamps are just too expensive here as is most everything hobby related).
Enough of my rambling! On to thd card.
A quick card using Distress inks to blend a two-tone background. All stamps are from a Prima cling stamp set - the set doesn't have a name but the number is #557126 if you're interested to source it. It's not new- maybe early this year so you've been warned it may be harder to find!
I loved the blue & green mix which looks quite decadent. The swirl die is from cheery lynn and is my favorite die hands down (can u tell? It's on almost every project).
And of course, some awesome washi tape with lots of birdcages!

Mind you, the space available was very small. Approximately 15 stalls selling sewing craft items, miscellaneous bits n bobs, charms and jewellery findings and one large stall for papercrafting items.
Here's where I found myself disappointed. I cannot pass much judgement on the sewing or jewellery making items because it isn't my forte but I can attest for the prices of the papercrafting products. Memory box, spellbinders and dienamics dies were being sold at quite frankly, rather high prices much akin to that shall not be named craft store in Tropicana that I avoid.
As a Subang-ite, the place was easy enough to find for me but I can see how an unfamiliar could get lost. You would also have to heavily rely on advertising prior because the 3rd floor shop is unlikely to be found by passersby so walk-ins will be few if any.

For my dt project this mth, I personalised a regular notebook. An extremely simple project with clean lines and lots of open spaces. Yet, I think it's pretty in it's own simplistic way.
I can't wait to get it back from rotation so it can serve as the memory keeper and story teller that it was meant to be.
