Create your own sunshine

Hello fellow Crafters,

and happy Wednesday to you. Today the lovely Kaz is our hostess and she chose 'Colour Splash' as her theme. This is what she said :

'I'd like to see some bright colours to cheer us up in the dim days of January'

So this is what I did...

I used acrylic paints in yellow and orange and then added some pink here and there. Next I used a chevron stencil and pink Distress Ink. A polkadot stencil and white ink were next..
The background was then stamped with "fax to Wolfgang'; my favourite background stamp by Stampotique... I also drew some lines around the page with some doodles. 
I stamped the 'Scalloped lace border on some scraps of paper that had the same basic colours and used a white paint pen to add some details. I cut them out and adhered them randomly around the page. I decided to use 'Mary' today as she had been in the drawer for too long. I coloured her with Copics and cut her out. I adhered her on the left page on top of the border. The sentiment came from the internet and was hand written by me ! I hope you will have a go this week and have a chance of winning one of those $30 vouchers to spend in the Stampotique on-line shop. Just remember: NO digi's and only one entry per person per week ! 

I used the following Stampotique stamps :

Thanks for stopping by ! 

Hope you like it.....

  10. These colours always remind me of pear drop sweets and i always salivate at the thought of having one, they are delicious but not good for dental health lol.
