Something Completely Different!

My DD celebrated her 17th birthday last week! goodness..... where did the time go!!!

I wanted to make her something completely different for her birthday & I had hoped to sign up for a fabulous online class.. but didn't realise registration shut & I miss out! sooooooo.... I thought I'd have a go anyway...

I started with a piece of blank mountboard & stamped a background us a gorgeous stamp from Stampotique Originals called Antique Description.

Then I painted the background using acrylic paints.. I then stamped in the centre another of my favourite Stampotique stamps.. A friend is... 

I doodled the girl & used an offcut of  Basic Grey paper for her dress that I distressed a little using Splatter stamp.. voila!

My little guy (see post below!) couldn't grasp DD's name when he was tiny & so Rae Rae stuck!


Thank you for calling. Wishing everyone a happy weekend..xx

    I've just found 50' of freezer paper online at £3.99 so that's not bad, just waiting for confirmation of postage. Did you want some calico? you can get it in Dunelm Mill - well depending on how big the nearest one to you is, as the smaller ones don't sell fabric. There's a great fabric shop in Dewsbury that sells it too, so that's handy for me.
