Hanglar - Bug i kruka


This is different from my normal style as I tried to make the papers look older with tearing and staining. Believe me this was so difficult for me as I just hate my papers getting creased or torn! I am so pleased with how this turned out though. I coloured this beautiful Hanglar stamp with my Prisma colour pencils with sansador and paper stumps to blend. I also used my Sakura stardust pen for added detail. The Gorgeous papers are a 12" x 12" scrapbook paper by Daisy Bucket (Summer Cottage Window box). The sentiment is by Stamping up. Other accessories: Prima flowers, PM gems, String, Button, fibres & brads.

Hope you are all having a great weekend and I would like to thank you so much for all the Wonderful comments you leave on my blog !!
