Memories of Annalee


This is a dual purpose project today :D

Its this weeks Bubbly Scrumptious project plus I used lots of layering to comply with the Simon says stamp and show challenge this week - two birds with one stone LOL :D

Some of you may not know this but.......... I have a Prima Obsession!!!!

So how over the moon was I when Caroline sent me some of the gorgeous new Annalee range :D

Combine that with a page from a Maya Road Chipboard skinny house and this is what you get :D

First I covered a Bubbalicious chip key with the pink paper from the 6x6 paper pad.

I then covered the house in the blue paper with the floral corners and cut out the other floral corner to layer over the top to add dimension.

Before I did this, I stamped the fairy flora girl in black archival ink by sweeping it over the stamp rather than dabbing to give softer image. I then used a light blue promarker to highlight the shadows on the stamped image.

I then added the floral corner on 3D foam pads.

I cut out a roof from chipboard to match the one on the house then covered it with one of the borders from the paper pad. I raised this even further by sticking it down with 3D foam pads.

I covered a chipboard heart and tag and stamped them with prima stamps

Next I added some Prima craftables flowers and added centres with Viva decor paper pen in cobalt blue and added few of the crystals from the Prima mini stamp packs.

I decided my key looked a bit plain so stamped it with the swiping of ink randomly with the stamps I had already used

Lastly I punched holes in the roof and the key and threaded through ribbon to suspend it, the added a piece of lace to the key to form a hanging loop.

I adore the prima mini stamps and find them really useful in my altered dominoes and they are just such flipping good value!!!

Here's a few more pics for you to see before you dash off and buy those fabby stamps and papers :D
