Good afternoon, lovely sunny weekend, hope your all having a fab time and enjoying yourselves. 
Recently I spent time making loads of alcohol ink backgrounds 

Then I decided to use the fantastic stamps from Leonie pujols last release on  Hochanda, This is how it finished 

I was really really pleased with this but made it after the launch so it wasn't shown on TV ! Love this collection of stamps and quotes. 
Hope you like it, I'm off now to have a play with new graphic 45 papers. 
Thanks so much for visiting xxxx
