One Bus, Two Bus, Many

Hello.  Welcome.  It's been a busy week for happy mail!  It seems that items I ordered for my own birthday, and a couple of packages of happy wins, all arrived at the same time.  I am like a crazy crafter in a storm of NBUS!!  My first stamps arrived from Paperbabes.  Thanks Kim.  I couldn't wait to ink up this beautiful big geisha.  Love her.  Love!!

I made a happy birthday tag

I went with a smallish tag and used Fossilised Amber Dox through Stamploration Big Bloom Factory stencil and Prima black fluid chalk through Stamplorations Some Birds stencil.  I stamped the Unity Stamps sentiment with the black chalk ink.

I stamped and embossed Paperbabes MaryLeeDee Kimono clear stamp on handmade paper.  Then I coloured with Promarkers.  I thought they might bleed a bit cos of the texture of the paper, but they worked fab.  Then I fussy cut her and added her to the tag.  The ribbon is silk, which I thought went perfectly with the asian theme.  

Thanks for dropping by.  Hugz
