Fabulous Followers - Its OK if you don't.... but it would be nice if you did

Sunday, 8 April 2018


The new challenge at Fashionable Stamping this month is 'Animals'  and thanks to a crafty friend, I was able to borrow the Tim Holtz Crazy dogs.  

He was stamped, coloured and fussy cut and adhered onto my Oxide inky stencilled background with foam pads.  The sentiment is from an Art Impressions set and so are the fussy cut balloons, which were also added with foam pads.  I attached thread to two and adhered to the dogs collar and drew the 'floating' balloons string.

There's some fabulous inspirational makes from the rest of the DT, so please pop over to the main blog where you will also find  details of our Sponsor,  InkArtDesigns, who is offering one lucky random winner a stamp from the shop.

I'm entering this at:

  That's Crafty - Going Round in Circles

Thanks for calling in,
