Alpha Challenge 'G'

'G' is the letter for the current challenge over at The Craft Barn,  'Girl' is the word that jumped out at me so that is what I went with.


I love this main image - its a B-Line Designs stamp that I bought second hand at a sale a while ago and haven't used before.  The quote is from the Safari set from Paperartsy and the letters are Cuttlebug.  The background is done using Picked Raspberry, Tattered Rose, Spun Sugar and Peacock Feathers Distress Inks.  The flowers are stencilled using the Daisy Oval mask from Imagination Crafts and Picked Raspberry Distress Ink.  The black stamping is done with Archival Ink and I have added glitter to the centre of the flowers the the necklace.  As usual there are lots of other fab pages to see over at The Craft Barn.  Thank you so much for looking - its so appreciated!  Take care.  Christine xx

Lovely page, great stamp choice (nothing to do with the fact I have a variation of that stamp and its one of my favourites - lol). Your quote brings the page together beautifully.
