Change of Season

Change of Season
is the new monthly challenge at Fashionable Stamping Challenges.

In my part of the world we have beautiful Spring weather starting to kick in with blue skies and new leaves bursting out on the trees.
And flowers....lots of flowers!!!
So for my piece this month I am inspired by what is around me.


I found this gorgeous paper from Bo Bunny in my stash with butterflies on it and thought it would make a perfect backing for my stamping.
 I added some little circles which is a Finnabair stamp and stamped over some words from an old book...words that I thought represented Spring; spring, south, warm, sunshine, delight and birds.  These were coloured and added in among the other circles which were added with gesso.

 Instead of using ink I have water-coloured the sunflower.

The girls at FSC have come up with some inspiring and very different versions on the theme this time.
Please pop on over and check out the awesomeness of their creativity,
 be inspired, and maybe join in our fun.
Flonzcraft are our sponsors this fortnight and have a generous $20 gift voucher up for grabs,
there are spotlights and a top 3 as well.

Stamping must be the focal point on your project!



I hope you enjoy my card.

Secret Squirrels

I've been having a little fun in the Craft Stamper's November issue with my card called 
'Secret Squirrels'


It is in the Ready, Set, Stamp section with the theme of Woodlands.
  It never ceases to amaze me how everyone can see the same topic so differently...


These stamps are all from Indigoblu and are heaps of fun when you combine them with a little masking, some drippage and, of course, some distress...

The squirrels running up and down the trees were an afterthought but somehow they just bring the whole quietness of a bare forest to life.

And we all know that there is no such thing as a silent forest!
There is always a little mischief going on...


Enjoy!
