Now, I think it's time for a bit of stamping! I love the Modern Medley range of designer papers and used one of them to form the background on this card:


Collage-style stamping works well on this kind of paper and what better set to do that with than the gorgeous Papaya Collage stamp set?!


You can see how I built up a background of leaves and speckles from Gorgeous Grunge. I stamped these in Crushed Curry which is the perfect colour for a subtle bit of zing. I stamped my bird over the top, quickly heat embossing him with clear embossing powder before the ink dried.


The sentiment is from the Hostess set Morning Meadow, stamped onto a strip of card stock trimmed into a banner and I mounted my panel on a card base made with the subtly textured core'dinations card stock.

I'm still chuckling over our Easter treasure hunt. One of the clues was 'Highly strung' and was hidden on one of our roman blinds. As the children went off to find it I heard my oldest son say: "There must be a harp in the house somewhere..!"

See you tomorrow,
