Up, Up and Away.....

Yep I did a little disappearing act again! I've been busy creating but just haven't had the time to blog. A few things have changed creatively for me, not least of which is that I'm now an official Docrafts Expert and will be demonstrating in various locations in the South East.

Anyway, enough about me and lets get on with showing you a TV sample that I forgot to blog for the launch of Polkadoodles Stamp Soup collection. This was a really quick and easy make and came out heaps better than I could ever have imagined!

This project uses 5 of the stamps from the collection, Distress Inks, Fantasy Paints and a mini box frame.

To create simply stamp the curly leaf and elongated heart leaf stamp several times onto plain card, cut out and colour as desired. I've added a trunk to the tree in the foreground.

Using Stazon Ink, stamp the sentiment, balloon and basket. Add the ropes using a permanent marker pen. Paint the balloon and basket, set aside to dry.

Using glue and foam pads layer up the scene. Create a backdrop piece using a square of card and that's it you're done.

I hope you like this little box frame, I had a lot of fun making it and it was one of those projects that I didn't want to let go!

Thanks for stopping by today.
