We have had a lovely sunny weekend here in Andover and I hope you have in your part of the country.

Thought I would share with you this sampler I made recently. I really enjoyed making it and was very pleased with the result.

My colour scheme is River Rock and Rich Razzleberry. Unfortunately the close up shot (below) has altered the colours but it gives you clearer view of the background stamping. 

I used numerous stamp sets - too many to list, and punches for the bird, butterfly and flowers. 

For the 'cracked' background paper I simply spritzed a square of River Rock card stock with water and scrunched it into a ball. I then flattened the piece out again and left it to dry for a few minutes before swiping over with a Rich Razzleberry ink pad. The large flower has been made in the same way using three punched scalloped circles held together with a silver brad from the Hodgepodge Hardware set.

Back soon, Julia
