I love my New Dress.


A new challenge for us  begins today over at Fashionable stamping Challenges.
Our new theme is Journaling.
I do hope you will join  us. Please pop over to see what we have all been making and get all the details and information about our generous sponsor.
 .We have a  wonderful Guest Designer  sharing her inspiring work as well.

It is difficult to exactly say how I created the base colours of my pages. Those of you who visit know, I use my journal to mop up colours and clean off stamps making sure every bit of the ink gets used up, blot off masks used for other projects etc.
They could stay this way for weeks until they get used. 

This time I picked out one of the not so messy backgrounds to use.
The stamping additions I used for these pages are  Jofy from Paper Artsy and Dylusions.
I used watercolours to colour the added images.
The Stampotique image is called. 'I love my new dress'.
Don't think those boots go with it, but they will keep her feet dry in the grass.

Thank you for stopping by to take a look, your comments are always appreciated.

  12. I love the background and really it is irrelevant that you are unable to list the stages in its creation. We can see there are so many layers involved and your main stamps work so perfectly with the background.
