and I’ve brought the sun home with me for a change! What a lovely day it was Sunday, I just had to spend it in the garden but I did manage a couple of hours in my craft room and I had promised that this month’s giveaway would be along today so here it is. A large tag (it’s approx 8.5” tall) using one of my gorgeous Julie Nuttall stamps. I just love these little dolls they never fail to delight me. Using one of the ready made Julie Nuttall tag pad tags as a base I have added texture pastes, stamping, paints, inks and distressed papers. Can you tell I was missing getting messy?

The doll was paper pieced and coloured with promarkers and then I just went bananas with die cuts and flowers




I used a mix of ready made  and hand made flowers – that centrepiece was made a while ago using wax in the meltpot. IMG_1048I also added a bit of mica sparkle to some of the leaves.

Right, here’s da rules. If you want to go in the draw then let me know by leaving a comment on this post. If you link from your own blog I will put you in the draw twice. International players welcome, closing date for entries will be 9.00 pm on Sunday 30th March.


I’d also like to bring to your attention a newish challenge blog called Fantasy Stampers. Their current challenge is ‘Spring Colours’ and I’m going to link in this project as I think it qualifies even though it’s a bit ‘shabby spring’ rather than vibrant blues, yellows and greens.

That’s all – have a  great day!!

Wow! Look at all those flowers and foliage on that tag, along with your fab lady. So much wonderfulness!

I just bought one of these doll stamps because... well, why not!? I want to do paper piecing on the dress because they just call out for that.
