Arty Girlz Guest Designer - SPRING

Well, I have to say I feel very honoured to be the guest designer for Arty Girlz this week, and the theme is Spring - so here is what I created.







The background and frame are both from the DCWV Luxury Mat Stack. The main pink background was stamped with "Elegant Flourishes" by Rhonna Farrer and "Butterfly Calligraphy" by Cherry Pie Art Stamps using an Adirondak dye based ink pad in "Meadow"


The outer panel was stamped with the "Ornamentals set" by Purple Onion Designs and embossed with Judi Kins embossing powder in "Malachite"


I applied a vintage photo of the girl and covered with the frame panel. Embelished with some prima flowers and pale pink adhesive pearls I hung the piece on a French Laundry Hanging.

The items highlighted in green are available from Stamp Diva... check out my retail therapy links :)
