Helping Hands - Stamp Something


Stamp Something - Embellish something

What a lovely challenge it is this week from Stamp Something Challenge, I am trying to work on improving my use of embellishments and everytime I visit your blogs I study your creations for ideas, so this is a chance to see if I have learnt anything. I have used one of the Fabulous Nikkis sketches, that you can find here Thanks. Nikki she has some really unusal sketches for us to use so please go and see them.



This is the first time I have coloured up this WOJ image she is so beautiful and what a wonderful Mothers Day Card she would make, Melinda has been coloured with distress inks and H20's and is rather more pastel than I usual paint my images, but I like it. Papers are Basic Gray and K & Co mounted onto Green and Pink Brazill Basics. I was tidying up all my boxes and found lots of punches I forgot I had, the little white doileys were punched with one of these, I think I bought it from C&C. Corners were cut on CB, sentiment ticket stamps are from Autumn Leaves, rest from stash.
