Allsorts Week 286 - No background papers

Hi All

This week we have been challenged to use no background papers.

I have used some hobby art stamps as was feeling inspired after my last workshop

Ive used some of the stamoos to make a background panel and over inked with pine needles distress ink.  Theres wink of stella in abundance on this to make it sparkle but i dont think you can see it too well on the photo (very happy with the non photo version)

Hi All

This week it is me hosting you at Allsorts and i have set the theme of   "AUTUMN".  Plenty of scope for autumnal colour's, embellishments, nature scenes etc.

This tree stamp is by inkylicious and i have created a background with distress ink, white embossing and a penny black paisley stamp.

Craft Fairy was set up in 2005 when, as an avid crafter, I was unable to source the crafty items that I wanted without paying an astronomical price. Over the years we have responded to the requests of crafters and we now sell a huge number of ribbons, (over 800) along with bows, feathers, buttons, paper flowers, lace, rubber stamps, Kuretake pens, felt, beads and more. Anything pretty really.

£10 voucher

DigiStamp Boutique offers a wide range of digi images designed by Sally-Ann Hancock. My work means the world to me - it allows my passion to draw and create, to fit with my family life too - often the inspiration for my designs. Hope you enjoy as much as I enjoy creating.
