a Play Day - with Lin Brown stamps

Having a chill-out day today ahead of the fun at Stevenage and the Stamperama show tomorrow... I had some leftover ink in my journal :
 this is Spanish Mulberry, Lake Wanaka and Little Black Dress, then a light wash of watered down Antarctic
 added some tissue wrap with matte medium
 and then some of Lin's flowers from ELB04 - love these solid designs, because they show up over the quite busy background.
I used Spanish Mulberry paint for the paler pink flowers, and Watering Can, Cornflower Blue and Magenta Hue archival inks.
 stamped one of Lin's new flower sentiments on white card, and edged it with some Spanish Mulberry left on a bit of cut and dry foam

then took the sentiment from the Paperartsy Ink and the Dog Petals 6 plate and cut it into individual words,

had fun doing this one! Thanks Lin for some great stamps....

Holy cow, Helen. This is PERFECT. I love these pages. And you are right about the stamps, too. They show up over the busy background.

BTW, thanks for explaining what CAS is. I always wondered what the acronym stood for. Now I know. And of course, the page in your journal is stunning, too.

Have fun on Sunday. I can already see the $$'s flying away. Sorry, I don't have a sign for pounds on my keyboard. Please take lots of photos so I can drool. After all, I live vicariously.

So pretty - love all the different flowers and the trailing vines carry the eye around the pages so well. Yup, still on for Stamperama - as long as the flooding doesn't get worse!! Aiming for 10.30ish arrival...
