Our hostess this week Jo Capper-Sandon has challenged the Design Team to use newsprint/old book pages on our artwork.

This challenge was so much fun.. hope you can join us!

This piece has lots of 3D elements to it so I just had to share an arty shot with you!

Stamps used:

3041 Wee Owl (NEW)
3045 Small Moon (New)
6125 Minkygirl (NEW)

Firsty, I stamped the Antique Description text stamp onto plain white cardstock & had great fun colouring the cardstock with Distress Inks & Cosmic Shimmer spray.

I stamped Minkgirl onto smooth cardstock & coloured her using Copic pens along with Wee Owl & Small Moon & covered the moon in Glossy Accents.

This card was so much fun to make..dare I share my thinking with you for this creation!! .................. at my little boy's Nursery.. they have bunting up & have a parade/show/concert planned for the Royal Wedding in Nursery at the end of the month.. my little boy (4) has been given the role of policeman.... his bestfriend is being the official photographer! 

Last week I received my invitation to the Royal Wedding!! how exciting is this!! hehe.. making wonderful memories!! sooooooooo here is Daniel Torrente's Minkygirl ready & waiting to be swept off her feet...looking out from her balcony..wonder what she is thinking..

Thank you for calling today & leaving a comment if you get the chance. The Design Team have some gorgeous creative inspiration to share with you over at Stampotique Desginer's Challenge today & over the next 2 coming weeks. 

Hope you can join us.. as it's the first challenge of the month this challenge is open to ALL stamps with a fabulous gift certificate for the winner. 

Good luck & Happy crafting. Gez.xx
