Dylusions and grunge


Using Spring Branch, Grunge 2 and Fancy Floral onto a background of Dylusions

I thought I had better share a few of the samples I recently made for Stamp Addicts in readiness for the next TV show, all are available in the Whats New section of the website here.

My apologies for the lack of visits but I am still very much in the grips of the NHS with my operation just around the corner and although I am crafting to try and maintain a degree of sanity finding socialising in blogland rather difficult.

Using Grunge 2 and Roman Clock onto a background of Dylusions

Hope you all have a good Thursday and as always my appreciation for your visits and kind words.

  41. I'm glad you're able to craft whilst so much is going on for you - you're much in my thoughts.
    Lovely to see how you've toned down the bright Dylusions backgrounds in both of these samples. I particularly like the way your brown die-cuts in the first echo the brown stamped tree & birds.
