Buzzy day…

Well it’s back to work for me tomorrow after an extended weekend off for my Birthday – including a couple of days away inCovent Garden  -  It was a lovely weekend!
When I returned I found  new stamps from Stamp Addicts waiting for me so on went my DT hat.SD532424
I created this background using the woodgrain technique as required for the Just Us Girls challenge (there is a tutorial link on the JUG blog) After which I ‘stamped’ with bubble wrap in Distress inks. I layered torn cardboard from an old box which I’d inked with Walnut Ink DI. All the images are coloured with Pro-markers and are from Stamp Addicts. The sentiment is from SA too and I’ve layered onto a scalloped Nestie circle.

Challenges -

Right then – off for an early night, getting up in the morning’s gonna be tricky!! Thanks for looking - Esther xx

The stamps I’ve used and others will be on Stamp Addicts show on Create and Craft – 19th June @ 11.00am and don't forget the new Craft-Room Challenge 'Altered paper Dolls' started today!
