Inspired !

Hi there

I bet you can tell there's a few challenges going on that got me all inspired??

They are :

simply less is more ~ one layer birds
just us girls challenge ~ create a stamping collage
cas-ualfridays ~ scallops

Also entering : lets ink it up ~ anything goes, rubber stamps only.

Since the 3 challenges are some of my favourites
{ :-D}  in blogland...I thought... why not combine it and see what happens?





The scallops were created by masking with a template which I have cut from plain paper. Stamped with a damask background stamp.
Sentiment in Afrikaans, finished off with the little swallow stamp, and metallic embellishments.









Thanks for looking!
