Hi all hope you are well, what fab weather we have
been having here over in the North West
it feels like summer.
So much so that the shorts have made their
first outing this year and so have my
They don't often get an outing so I'm making the
most of it while i can.
I don't know how long it's going to last,
the kiddies break up for Easter hols on
Friday so the weather is bound to change.
This weeks Papertake challenge is on again
and it's Sketch time.
We are sponsored by
Simon Says Stamp.
I've gone a bit Vintage this time.
It all started with sorting a cupboard and
coming across my Twinkling H2O's which
i must confess (shock, horror) have well and
truly been neglected.
Then getting all excited about using them
again, it felt like i had got something new to play with.
I wanted to paint something delicate so out
came my Flower Fairy's stamps from
This little Daisy stamp look so pretty she
had to be coloured.
The Backing papers are from Sheena's CD Rom
i then used the daisy to over stamp this along the
bottom with Frayed Burlap.
I used a couple of Marianne Creatables dies
behind main image.
Flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts and the
lace and Ribbon from stash.
While i had all my H2O's out hubby came in with
an old CD disc spool asking if there was
anything i could do with it. I'm sure I've seen
this idea somewhere on blog land, it pop straight
in my head when i saw the spool.
Isn't it fab. I have used
pinflair glue to stick them to the clear
disc's you get in the pack, this way i
can still see the colour names and it keeps
them all together and handy. It
also frees up some much needed draw space
and it's recycling.
Thanks for stopping by today
hope to see your wonderful
creations over at Papertake weekly.
