Make the Day Special August Challenge

It's my favourite kind of challenge at Make The Day Special this month, a sketch! Here's my interpretation using the Avery Elle Tweet Tweet stamps I bought using my voucher for winning last month's challenge. I love these stamps! :)

I've used Inktense pencils to colour the birds (still practicing with these!), and Distress Inks to stencil the background and also watercolour the background to the bird perches. The stitching is using an American Crafts Amy Tan template.

Over the Rainbow

I was really lucky to win one of July's Lollipop Box Club kits on Instagram, called "Over the Rainbow". And I absolutely love it, full of awesome rainbow things that I couldn't wait to use. (My 2 1/2 year old also loved it, I've got high hopes for her being as big a fan of all things crafty and papery as I am!) I decided to use the rainbow card as a starting point for this page and extend it onto my cardstock. The clouds from the kit I used as a stencil first, and stapled them on after, And the couple of patterned papers I used are from my scraps box. The photo is one from our holiday in Devon in June.

This next layout isn't from the kit, but it's almost as colourful so I thought I'd add it here too. I think most of this is from an old Studio Calico kit. This is my crazy daughter almost getting herself lodged into my friend's daughter's walker!
