Oooh, look, my first goodies of 2008. They're the new spring collection from Penny Black and I couldn't resist when I saw Happy Stampers already had them in stock. I ordered late Tuesday evening, and they arrived today - I love great speedy service and it was free P&P :) But I'm determined to finish my calender first (although I'm sure I can use them on some of my remaining months, just not Feb!).
Full length . .
Up Close. .
All images stamped and watercoloured direct onto the calender, apart from the leaping frog with flower. He was stamped onto seperate piece of card, cut out and attached to the calender via a strip of clear plastic so that it 'floats' off the page like it is leaping. Then just stamped a Hero arts sentiment (from set called 'handwritten for you') and added some paper flowers and brads.
Names of stamps used:
- Frolicking frogs
- Jump for joy (the frog in the 'air')
- Love bugs
- Hobble & Cuddle (the hedgehog & snail at bottome of page, it's just 1 stamp but I stamped the 2 bits seperately)
