Play time

 
I was rattling along in fine form at the beginning of the month but then I started to run out of steam despite having untouched new stash.  Last night I thought I'd just mess about with a few stencils and this is the result, bit of a mish mash but I loved making it.  The inked background was in my folder of inky/painty papers and I'm not sure but I think it is brushos, then I just got carried away with embossing paste and stencils, the large flowers are Imagination craft stencil, Roman numerals and small flowers Indigo Blu. number stamps and wording are Kaisercraft.  I stamped too many red flowers and decided I had spoilt it but then I reapplied the stencil and used white over the top hence the pink flowers. Butterfly is Stampin Up stamps and die. I think I may make this into a book cover for one of my notebooks.  I'd like to enter it into these challenges

  1. I love it Joan and it would make a great cover for a note book. I often find that some of the best results come when we have no idea where we're heading :)

  5. I love this page you have created. Toning the red flowers down with white has worked a treat and no one would know they weren't pink to start with.

  7. Sometimes 'mis mash' creations turn out the best Joan and I think the colours give a lovely fresh Spring feel.
