Carnival time again!

It's party time again today with more lovely yummy new stamps from the Sugar Nellie team.
Two days on the trot and today I'm making up some candy floss to go with my sweet sugar stamp.
Again you can catch up with all the new stamps on the Funky Kits site.
You know you want too!
If you have arrived here from Michele's blog then you are in the right place,
if not
it's back to HOME  you go
 in case you miss anything,
and we don't want that, do we?

The stamp I am showcasing today.....drum called
"Honey Pip"
from the Sherbet Pips range of which there are 5 cuties to choose from.

I have used:
Papers:  Cosmo Cricket Earth Love Turn over a new leaf Remember and Rethink.
Spellbinder Nestabilities:  Classic rectangles large.
Stamps:  Honey Pip, Sugar Nellie and Four frames, SU.
Die: SU
Buttons and seam binding from my local craft shop the House of Sugar.
I have also used Distress inks Peeled paint and Antique linen.
Finally colouring with my copics markers.

Now with Honey Pip I have added a wee tree trunk for her to sit on as I felt it went lovely with the papers and the image of her sat holding her wild flowers.
She is such a cutie.
But I go on...must be the sugar high!

Let's continue on the hop,
next up is the lovely
Enjoy the Carnival and as the slogan goes,

Of course!!

Love the card and you are right, that tree trunk is the perfect finishing touch!

Paula said...

I love the way you've sat her on that tree trunk - so effective - as is the placing of your horizontal panel with that little bug on teh flower - she looks like she's glancing down at it!). The papers work beautifully with that SU sentiment too. Thanks for a delightful example.

Almost forget to say how much I love that seam binding ruffled effect you created (my attention strayed over that bug)
