'Tile Effect'

It's the weekend, yay....this week has been really strange. Nige was off Tuesday & Wednesday, so my days are all mixed up! He is off again tomorrow, so we are off to Gentleshaw for the day.

Anyhoos my reason for being here today is to show you my creation for My Time To Craft. This week we have a great challenge for you. I have been wanting to do this effect for a while, so decided to do it as a challenge theme, only so I can see what fab creations everyone makes lol!


kinda like a jigsaw puzzle but with straight sides....

This has got to be one of my all time favourite flower stamps that I own. I think I have used it about 5 times now. It is perfect to colour using Promarkers, water colours or just pencils.

Image & Colouring Mediums
Image- 'Rose' by Local King Rubber Stamp

Roses- dusky purple, shiraz & scarlet pink
