Serengeti sunset


Morning Peeps, it's Saturday and time for a new challenge at Allsorts where our host is Mervi and is sending us all dotty with the theme of 'Lots of Dots'. Our prize this week comes from Craft Stash. I also have a few shares from my post over at the Chocolate Baroque blog.


It stands to reason that my dots would be in the form of stencils and ink as I rarely use DP's on my work preferring to create my own backgrounds, so the top creation is a lolly stick plaque made for Stamp Addicts Hochanda TV shows on Tuesday 17th. Stamp Addicts have sold Judikins stamps for many many years and I have a good number of lovely wood mounted ones in my stash from way back, well on Tuesday they are launching some of the original images under their own name. 

I used Dylusion sprays for the background and then stamped the Giraffes, masked them and then added the Serengeti trees and Zebras. Using a mask and texture paste I added the dots to fit in with this weeks theme.

My chipboard ATC heart was a Chocolate Baroque Hochanda TV sample, the background inked with Oxides, the flower stamped centrally and the lattices and spots are worker stamps from one of the sets in the show as is the sentiment stamped onto vellum.

And here are a few of my shares from my post over at the Chocolate Baroque blog.........


Happy weekend all and always my thanks for your visits and comments which are always much appreciated.
