Tropical Paradise and another new TV show

A new Allsorts challenge and a heads up about another new Stamp Addicts TV programme on Create and Craft later this month.

My teamie Emma has come up with another of her fab sketches at Allsorts this week and I have done a bit of an unconventional take on it, but I thinks it follows the sketch and Emma won't rap my knuckles.

For the main central element I used a circle mask and stamped a tropical scene using an assortment of Stampscapes stamps, then brayered over with Adirondack due inks and added a bit of colour to the images with Copics. The DP was an oddment from stash and the sentiment is from Stamping Up.

Using Gypsy Caravan 2 and Scenic sets and Aquamarkers

Now on to the Stamp Addicts samples for the new programme scheduled for 11am on 27th April. Yet more yummy new scenic style stamp sheets, so as you can imagine I have been in my element again.

A real chocolate box cottage from the Rural set, along with the Scenic and Gypsy Caravan 2 sets.
