Saw the idea for ho, ho, ho baubles on Pinterest ages ago! 
Finally got time to ink my new Stampotique images up, plus a splash of grey ink splats by PaperArtsy in the background. Letters by Hunkydory range 'For the Love of Stamps'.

Fence



Had such fun making this project..what was going to be a mini book ended up as a birthday card!
Turned some lolly sticks into a fence, inked them up a bit and then added some Stampotique images to bring it all together.
The ink splat is from a coffee set by HunkyDory. I am pretty sure the happy birthday sentiment is my Magnolia! Talk about an eclectic mixed of Stamps!
