A stamped Background Snippet

Good Wednesday Morning Ladies, 

Please join me in wishing Our Lovely friend Janet the very Happiest of Birthdays πŸŽ‚ πŸ₯³❤πŸŽ‰
I hope that you manage to have a lovely day despite having the vampires visiting you, sending you love & gentle hugs xxx

A bit of a dull and dreary day here yesterday, quite chilly too, we have had the log burner on the past couple of nights, no rain though which is a bonus. 

Today's Snippet has more 'muted ' tones,  Vintage Photo Distress Oxide is the only colour, the flowers and Wellies were coloured with Ecoline pens, the pop of red really lifts this Snippet.  The background was created in 2 parts, I masked off a section and stamped a border,  before removing the tape I added some vintage photo, distress oxide along the very edge of the stamped border with a blending brush.  I used the same stamp 'Bulb Gazette' Aall&Create for the background stamping,  I removed the stamp from the block and inked it with Vintage Photo DO and picked it up and used parts of it to add detail,  having it without block means you can bend and flex the stamp to pick out little bits to create interest.   I used glue gel to give some dimension to the Wellies, so that I could pop the flowers in behind them.  I added a few more elements and then gave the final touch of white paint pen splatters!  

I hope that you all manage to stay warm & Dry, 

Love and huge hugs,

Sandra xxxxxx
