Well 2 things I love are 2 Sticks and Scraplings so what a perfect opportunity to combine the 2. So here is my contribution to the Stampotique Challenge 24 Valentine or Love.
I am also entering this into The Stampman Challange, Hearts Theme, as I love its clean fresh simplicity and it makes me smile each time I look at it.
Hope you enjoy!

I have not been posting much just recently as I have been busy completing 2 fabric items for an exhibition. A fabric picture and a fabric book. I will share them with you in time. I just find I am chasing my tail just at the moment and am trying to catch up.
This is my make for Crowns with Gingersnaps and I have used the Queen of Life. I have cut her crown from some gold metal and also one for one of her cherubs. The other has a more playful princess hat for her crown. The background has been made using my acrylic inks.
There are some great makes by the other designers and players. Hop over and take a look and hope you find time to play along too!

Art Begins with a Vision
This is my circle tag for Tag Tuesday. The words are on some card I had painted which also included Moonglow inks. These have created a sheen which the light is now bouncing off and the words do not show up too well in the photograph, so I have titled this piece so the words can be read. I have continued playing with paints and inks to create the background to this tag. I have also adhered some die cut circles from the same card as the lettering has been stamped on to.

This is my Turquoise and Orange contribution to the current Stampotique Challenge. I must admit they are colours I am rather partial to so it suited me just fine. It also allowed me to continue using my acrylic inks to create the background papers. and my 2 most favourite Martha Stewart punches.
I adore 2 sticks and find that they are just so versatile. These colours are so spring like I just had to have them jumping for joy amongst Jo Capper-Sandon's flower stamp, at the thought of winter coming to an end.
