Hey there - got a little topper today for my post. I've used one of my new Sugar Nellie stamps 'Fragile Beauty' from the Home Grown ragne & LOVE IT! - will see much ink! - V. adorable! The beautiful floral paper is by K & Co. I got 150 12x12's I think for a very cheep price ages & ages ago & haven't used them that much, I re-discovered them the other day hiding underneath my newer papers (I have a real soft spot for my designer papers & am constantly buying more that I just absolutely NEED!!!) So when I tidy them out - I usually find something I'd forgotton about! The underneath piece is actually a plainer patteren from a Basic Grey paper pad, which I have sprayed with pink & lilac mica mists then dry brushed with white acrylic paint...
... The chipboard swirl has been paited with acrylic, sprayed with micas, then finished with Crackle Paint. The pretty lace is Prima I think & the fab chipboard swirl I think she looks great coloured it these slightly soft muted colours which I have used my DI's for...
