Warning- Bright Colour Alert!

Hello and hope that everyone is well in Blogland?  Thank you for all the lovely comments and a warm welcome to my new followers - I'm so thrilled that you've chosen to follow my little blog but I feel I should warn you that I chatter on quite a lot! It seems to have been a busy few days for me so I'm hoping I can actually get some crafting done today!  And I was so excited to win some gorgeous crafting goodies on the lovely Eileen's blog when she had her recent blog candy so I'm desperate to start playing with those! You know how it is when you get some new crafty items, we just turn into big kids again! (Well, I do!).

I think you might need your shades on for this one! I've used one of the gorgeous new digi stamps from Whimsy, by Marika Collins called 'Ballet Girl'

Well, I warned you it was bright!  I've gone for zesty lemons and limes on this one.  I've coloured the image with promarkers and flexmarkers


The backing papers are from K&Co and First Edition.  I've stamped a flower (using a freebie stamp that came with a magazine!) onto patterned paper but it looked a bit 'flat', so I cut round the petals and then curved them for a bit of extra dimension which I think looks a bit better!  The sheer ribbon is from Joanna Sheen and the buttons are from stash. 


Hope you like it! And hope that you'll have a look at the fabulous range of digi stamps over at Whimsy!
Back soon,
