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 :)


The theme for Arty Girlz this week is circles.... I have been so busy at work lately that again I confess I made this a while ago but it goes perfectly for this weeks theme. The rub-ons are by K & Co

The theme this week for Arty Girlz is Green... whilst I confess I made this a while back, it is perfect for the theme so I decided to use it for this weeks Challenge.

So again I am a little late this week but the theme for Arty Girlz this week is stamping. I started with a plain white card and stamped the script background in sepia brown and added the fleur de lys. The hand was stamped onto brown paper which was torn and edged with the same ink pad. The card was also edged in ink and finished off with a couple of buttons and a pen nib. This card ended up as my boss's birthday card this week :)
