Daffodil Island Mash...


Well, I've had a bit of frustrating morning - I wanted to revamp my blog look but in the process managed to wipe out pretty much everything on my sidebar and have spent hours trying to put it all back... grr! So that's why my blog looks rather different now! Anyway, it's Friday so that means it's time for another Friday Mashup challenge...

Here's your Mashup Challenge:
  1. Create a project using the "Sketch".
  2. Create a "Birthday" project.
  3. Or Mash it Up and create a "Birthday project using the Sketch".
 I pulled out a set I haven't used in a while and did some colouring...

The main image (from Bordering on Romance) was stamped on watercolour paper with Versamark and embossed with white EP, then coloured with an aquabrush and inkpads. The dsp in the background is from Floral District and I jazzed it up a bit by stamping the flourish from Elements of Style on top with Daffodil Delight ink and embossing it with clear EP. The sentiment is from Apothecary Art and I added some Lucky Limeade ribbon and bakers twine with a vintage faceted button, along with a few rhinestones to finish.

I used the colours from Hand Stamped Sentiments to help me with this one...

Make sure you check out the fab creations from the rest of the design team this week.

Thanks for stopping by...
