Double Up!


I'm being a little cheeky this week as I'm busy ferrying my daughter to and from exams and revision visits with her teachers. I'm doubling up my Stamp Spot Wednesday with the current Anya Ink Challenge - hope you don't mind Marcia!!! Anya Ink are asking for paper toling this week - a really fun challenge that can add sooo much depth to your work for just a little bit of effort. Tracey has a wonderful step by step explanation of how to paper tole an image here.

Apologies for my photo - my PC is at the computer doctors and the photo software on my laptop isn't as user friendly - maybe I should just learn to take better photos - LOL!!

You can find this gorgeous Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses DP and the adorable Christmas Sweeties stamps from The Greeting Farm over at The Stamp Spot Store. The bottom snowflake and the fur trim have been given the Polar White Flower Soft treatment - this is also available at the store. I've also added a little bit of Dazzling Diamonds for some snowy sparkle!

Such a cute image. Like what you've done with the flower soft, looks great and that DP couldn't tie in better, looks like mini images of the stamp! Paper Piecing is so much fun, but it is time consuming, great results.

She is just devine Debbie. I love the way you have used the Flower Soft. The toling gives it a great lift and 3D feel. Fiddly but def worth it.The Nesties shape is perfect for the image. You wouldn't mind this lirrle one turning up on ur front porch carolling!!!

so cute Debbie. Love the dress on the girl. She looks so lifelike. There is something about this one that makes it just stand out. by the way where do you hide all these cards you make? Your drawers must be flowing with cards by now.
