~~~ Backgrounds at Sweet Stampin ~~~

Good morning friends,
I hope you are well and keeping safe.
I finally was able to get my hair cut yesterday...
lots of restrictions but I so appreciate them opening and abiding by the rules.
Was not really lovin my Covid hairdo so this was a real treat to get it cut.

Today starts a new challenge at

Sweet Stampin Challenge

where the theme is "Make your Own Background"

I had so much fun stepping out of my comfort zone for this one.
The MFT stamps are from the "You bring a Smile" set. 

I created the sky using TH Distress Oxide Peacock Feathers ink and a small cloud stencil.
First attempt at this and it took a little tweeking before I was happy.  
For the grass I first brushed on TH Distress Oxide ink Cracked Pistachio then flicked Copic markers
and Polychromo pencil on to create the blades of grass.
All the images coloured with Copics with exception of the bird which was coloured with pencil.
Sentiment is also from the set. 

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Thanks for stopping by.
Hope you get a chance to stop by the blog and play along with us.

**** Sweet Stampin...Dies & Punches

Hello friends,
Hope you are well and enjoying the weekend.

Time for a new challenge at

Sweet Stampin Challenge

where we have a theme of "Dies and Punches"

I made this sneaker a couple of weeks ago and couldn't wait to show you.
It's a die from many clever parts that make up this fun boot.
I've used cotton tread for the laces and Graphic 45 papers for the shoe.
I used an MFT small brick stencil, TH Distress Oxide Ink for the background.
Sentiment is a stamp...also from MFT.
If you click on the image you can get a better look at the detail.
Anyone who knows me..knows I LOVE yes these tick a few boxes.

Still no results from my xray ..hopefully I will hear soon.

Entering the following challenges:

~~Feature a Creature~~~

Hi folks,
