The Stamping Bazaar.. ::Hansel::

Did you check out the Stamping Bazaar Weekly Update on Monday 30/05?! I sure hope so, if not, see THIS POST and catch up on the gorgeous creations you may have missed.

As you already know each week the DT come up with projects using images from The Stamping Bazaar STORE designed by our very own Marina Neira. I share Saturdays with Susan, and other team members post on different days of the week. 

Incase you don't know, here is a list of days on which DT members post their creations, with links to their blogs:
Susan, Me (Lou)

I hope you take the time out to visit everyone - they truely are an inspirational bunch, and who can resist the cuties from the Store?! I know I can't!! I want to collect them all

This week I am using Hansel with Flowers, he is available HERE from TSB Store. Isn't he just the cutest? Who am I kidding, I say that about every one of these images!

I have used Naturals Ivory cardstock from SU! as my cardbase which is the usual size of 5.5"x4.25". I have used some delicious papers from MME Stella and Rose 'Hattie' collection. I have tried to match my ink to the papers which I stamped my doily stamps in from Waltzingmouse stamps. More Mustard and Sage Shadow appear to coordinate pretty well!

I added a border of More Mustard cardstock behind the panel of aqua patterned paper and stitched along the edge. I added tiny dots to each of the scallops using a white gel pen to add a bit more detail! I cut a section out of the aqua patterned paper using a circle nestie and flipped it around to show the gorgeous pattern on the other side. I attached them using DST on the back and added faux stitching with a brown fineline around the join.

I coloured this handsome fella using ProMarkers - I never make a note of the colours, because by the time I am finished colouring an image my desk is swamped in a sea of PM's. Let's just say my PM storage leaves a lot to be desired. If any of you have seen my WOYWW posts, you will know I store them in Ariel liquitab boxes. They are fine for just storing them, but when it comes to using them you have to tip the whole lot out to reach the one you want. Nightmare. Anyway, I digress. I have fussy cut Hansel out and adhered him to the card using foam dimensionals.

This picture shows the sentiment part of the card, which I have created using a stamp set and die from PTI, I have attatched it to my coral/ peach/ flesh (?!) coloured seam binding from The Ribbon Girl using some gorgeous linen thread. I LOVE this stuff, I have sooo much - I always keep stocked up! LOL. I think that just about covers it. If you have any questions about my card or TSB, please, as ever, don't be afraid to leave me a comment or drop me an email. I'll be happy to answer any questions or concerns you have!!

I hope this post has given you the links you need to go explore the world of The Stamping Bazaar a little more! Thanks for stopping by, xo Lou Mac.
