Church Scrap Crop

Well Summer's almost over and schools are back, I'm taking my daughter back to Uni tomorrow, so with the nights drawing in will hopefully have more time for lots of crafting.

Its our Scrap Crop at Church next Saturday so this weekend I've been busy getting a couple of samples done.
The kit this time is using papers from Bo Bunny - back to basics collection, cordinating plain cardstock and rose ribbon - so gorgeous.

The first sample I've done is based on the August sketch over at My Creative Sketches
http://mycreativesketches.blogspot.co.uk/2012/08/augusts-sketch.html



I used used a stencil and distress ink to completely cover a pale green plain cardstock
I then used a dandilion head stamp and randomly stamped around the edge of page.  3 different sized squares of patterned paper with distressed edges and a square photograph, stamped flourish and the dandilion head stamped and cut out and placed on the flourish, stamped title








The second sample I've done is all my own creation
I used a grid mask and pumice stone distress ink to completely cover a latte coloured plain cardstock
I then used a flower stencil and barn door distress ink around the edge and in the corners, 2 strips of patterned paper and a strip of rose ribbon (5 x 7 photograph) and some stitching down the one side, finished off with gems and buttons in the centres of the stencilled flowers.


 
I must admit I am really pleased with the results and hope they will inspire the Ladies on Saturday.
