Drum roll please.....

Yes, it's that time of year again - PaperArtsy new releases.
This time I've had the pleasure of working with a new PaperArtsy designer, Kay Carley. Kay has released two beautiful  stamp sets with delicate, fine line drawing.


I couldn't resist decorating this birdcage with layered up tissue paper flowers from the Cosmos set, EKC01, and a stuffed bird inside:





I had some of the flowers left over so then created this canvas:



After that, I wanted to try out the Allium set, EKC02, and decided to use it on fabric. These stamps lend themselves to embellishments so I got out my needle and thread and did some hand stitching. Apart from the words, everything is stamped with Fresco paints:





Lastly I mixed the two sets and made these glossy panels:



If you hop on over to the PaperArtsy blog you can see what everyone else has made - there are new releases coming out every night this week!
Many thanks to Kay for letting me be one of her wingmen - I think you'll agree, her designs are beautiful

Thanks for looking!

Helen
