Be Happy

Hello everyone, I hope you are doing well.   I would like to welcome the new followers and again thank you to everyone for your visits and kind comments, they are appreciated.

Also a big thank you to all of you that left me tips on stamping over alcohol inks & glossy papers, I'll be playing again with them :)

I recently had a chance to use a wonderful whimsical stamp set that was designed by Marja (of Marja's Stamp Addiction) for Kico Stamps in the Netherlands.      Even though we are well into the Fall Season, this makes me think of Spring :)

I'm joining the challenge over at Rhedd and Rosie Challenge Blog as the theme is "Anything Goes".  



Stamp set used:   Kico StampsDiverse (2) Plate 51 (designed by Marja de Visser).

The background is with Dylusions inks.  I stamped the circle design with Distress Ink.   I stamped all images with black Stazon & coloured with Dylusions inks (I dab a little on my craft mat and use a brush & water).   I decoupaged as shown and highlighted a little with a white pen.

Have a great day... be happy !
Shirley

  9. This is striking Shirely & I love your touches of blue on those leaves. Your matting is a wonder & I love the way the duller yellow receding card base adds depth to the whole contrasting with & the advancing brilliant vibrant yellow of the flower centres.
    A gem this.
