Ohhhh, new stamps to play with ...

Oh my oh my .... I am totally and utterly cream cracker'd and am sadly feeling my age today. What a busy fortnight and definitely have end of term fog head but must also add have had a real blast too with the all the leavers events/activities.

On to the crafty task at hand ... Polka Doodles Challenges "two patterned papers" challenge. I decided to use the new stamp sets recently released to create my own backing papers, "What's up buttercup" ...


I created the floral background using the stamps and coloured with distress inks. I created a further smaller panel ready to layer my sentiment on to it. I also stamped some additional flower to layer up and created further height.

 

Before sticking everything down, thought I better add some ACTUAL patterned papers (just in case). These papers are from Bonbon Belles collection.


The sentiment is from Polka Doodles Work and Play 1 which I have over stamped and coloured. A few leaf stamped embellishments a cute lickle wooden birdie button are the finishing touches.

Right better get my bottom in gear and post this on to the challenge blog. Loads of crafty stuff to do this weekend ......
