Polkadoodles Stamp away

Lou at Polkadoodles challenged the Dt
to create a project using the
Fairy Flutterfly stamps for everything.
Your challenge is to stamp away i.e.
use stamps to create everything for your card - no dp's!
I really enjoyed making the background paper for this card by
painting my stamps with H2o's and
then spritzing with water before printing
to give the soft dreamy effect.
My flowers, butterflies, Babsie and sentiment
are all Polkadoodles stamps.
So if you fancy the challenge pop over
to Polka Doodles and join us!
