"Busy" in the Garden!!


Today I have an entry for
Stampin' for the Weekend. This week the challenge is to alter something. I chose to alter a notebook.
I used a notebook bought from Wilkinson and covered it with some DP from my stash.
The image is Popcorn the Bear, from the Father's Day stamp plate. I stamped it onto Manga Art Board using Memento Black Ink. I coloured the image with my Copics and then used some chalks for the background colour. I rounded the corners and sprayed him with some Crafters Companion Spray & Shine.
The roses and ribbon are from my stash and the other flowers are Prima.

Hope you like this alteration. Thanks for dropping by.
