It's A Boy

There's a new challenge this morning over at Polkadoodles and the theme is to print/stamp onto acetate/vellum. For my creation I used the Candy Doodles CD and printed the candy boys backing paper on to white vellum. I then printed and re-sized the stampies to match and coloured them with Promarkers. My main image was coloured with the fab Aquamarkers.

I would like to enter this for:-

1. Stamptacular Sunday - challenge # 71 - Snips & Snails & Puppy dog tails

2. Papertake Weekly - Something new and Something blue (I bought some nappy pins to use)

If you left a comment on my blog , with regards to the blogger problem of leaving spaces in between lines, and you also have the same problem .. .. try holding down your "shift" key and then pressing return. Hope it helps. I've tried it and it works, but you won't see it until you come off blogger then go back on. My blogging friend Jules finally was able so give me this solution. Thank you Jules x

I would also like to remind you about the DT Call on the new challenge blog "Oldie But A Goodie", it ends on the 20th August. And the challenge will start on the 7th September.

Papers - Vellum Printed with Candy Doodles CD,

  19. Hi Tracy

    I'm still on my mad catch up from my holidays, seems to be taking me forever. Mind you not helped by new puppy muts, not the brightest idea right on the back of our hols.

    Missed so much of your work, but all looks super as always.

    Hope the zoo was good.
