A new Design Team!

 Good morning, I have some exciting news today, I was delighted to be invited to join the Design Team at Stamping Sensations and here's the first card I designed for the challenge.

The theme for this month is 'Around the World' - I had to put my thinking cap on for this as I don't have many suitable stamps but eventually remembered this  one from Aall &Create - bought it from ebay without realising how big it was (some people never learn!) I had to chop a bit off the top to fit it onto an A5 card blank. I didn't need to add much to it, a bit of stencilling for background colour, paper-pieced the turtle, rocks and surfboard. A little water-colouring to the camper van and I die cut the right hand top corner- leaving all the pieces in place. 

Do take the time to hop over to Stamping Sensations Challenge to check out the fabulous makes from the rest of my new team, I hope you'll be inspired to join in with your own fabulous stamped creation.

What a fantastic stamp Chris! How funny it was so much bigger than you expected, I've been caught out with things being smaller before, so I get how that can happen buying online. Gorgeous card hun. I'm trying to get back into entering challenges lately. So will pop over soon. Hugs, Wends xoxo
