Paperbabe Stamps - September Lauch Blog Hop



Hi everyone and welcome to the  
September Launch Blog Hop! 

Kim and her friends are doing a hop a long to introduce the new stamps with samples as they go up for sale in the shop today! I've worked with MayLeeDee Witchily and what a pleasure she is to colour in all her beautiful guises! I also worked with the Cumulus cloud background stamp which is another stamp that will be a favourite stamp to use in many ways.


After colouring MayLeeDee with pencils and sponging a distress ink background I went on to stamp the cloud background in Faded Jeans distress ink and when dry I attached a piece of double sided adhesive sheet to the image. After removing the top protective sheet I sprinkled the adhesive a transparent fine glitter and after removing the excess buffed with a soft cloth (burnished glitter technique) to give a really gorgeous sparkle to the cloudy background.


The rest is fairly simple, some brightly coloured flora and greenery a chit chat sticker, some die cuts and pearls to decorate. Hope you enjoy the blog hop and if you need to start at the beginning then pop over to Paperbabe Stamps blog for all the details.
