Stamp Something - recipe somethings!

This week at Stamp Something our challenge is 'recipe somethings'... now normally I'm not a recipe sort of girl, I'm just not very good at following them.  But this one is easy peasy!  We'd like to see sparkle, flowers and buttons... even I can manage that :o)  We're sponsored by Funky Kits so there'll be a fab prize for the lucky winner.



Jean at Busy Bees has asked me for some Gorjuss Girl samples so she can put them up in the shop, so I've got a great excuse to get out all my GG stamps that haven't been inked for a while.  I really enjoyed making this one :o)

This is Bumblebee, and I've coloured her with promarkers and koh-i-noor pencils, and paper pieced her pretty dress.  Oh, and glamour dust for her wings of course.  The papers are Echo Park 'walk in the park'.  Flowers cut with my x-cut punch, but instead of shaping them I've embossed them with the 'swiss dots' folder, and added button centres.  Sentiment is Penny Black - love this one but it's the first time I've got round to using it.  Added a little punched flower on her dress, with a teeny pearl centre, and a pearl heart in her hair.

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:
Hoping to get some crafting time later, but just in case I don't (hubby's off and will moan about me being in the craft room when it's so nice out!), I hope you all have a fabulous Easter!
