CLP March Sketch Plays Dress Up with Whimsy Accesories

Hi my sweet stamping friends,
Thank you all that have been sweet enough to stop by
and leave me well wishes.
It sure is a pleasant distraction to read your kind words.
Thanks again.
At CLP Challenges, the amazing Chelsea Le
makes these outstanding sketches for us to create with,
there's a new sketch up on the first day of the month,
so uhhh, yes, I am late,
but maybe just a reminder, rather, hehe.
Our sponsor this month is Prairie Fairy Designs
and they have been kind enough to let the design team
select a few cuties to create with,
thank you very much, I enjoyed colouring up this little sweetie,
it's called Beggin' and you can find it HERE
In this instance, we'll call it Thoughtful though, hehehe.

How do you like those stamp stamps by Whimsy Stamps??
Yes, stamps of stamps, with coordinating cancellations
and a snazzy die cut that works like a dream!!
I find they add the perfect touch to projects,
and here's something I created using those snazzy
stamp stamps, as well as the glorious
Life Defined background stamp, find it HERE

I think that sentiments and background stamps
are a little too under-rated!!!
I am particularly fond of our background stamps,
designed by the amazing Ann Vento of
Raindrop Echo Designs,
they give such a lovely effect,
you can keep it clean and crisp,
or wrinkle and distress it,
either way, it adds a nice touch to your project.

I coloured with pencils then used some dizzying thinner to blend,
and the papers are Graphic 45 (stripes) and Basic Grey (spots),
the punch is by Martha Stewart and the flowers are a vast assortment
we crafters simply refer to as stash.

Thanks so much for stopping in for a visit!!

hugs, stephanne
