Little Poppet .... Stamperia Spring Botanic.

Anita here with you today,

I have a new layout to share using some papers from the detailed Spring Botanic range by Stamperia, featuring floral themes, garden insects and vintage ephemera.

I have been waiting a  few years to scrap this photo of my gorgeous niece, taken on a day that we went to visit some poppy fields on a day out. The beautiful sheet of Poppy and Bird paper was perfect for it, so I backed it onto a sheet of pale green card stock and then inked gently round the entire edge with a gold and then a coppery ink pad. I roughed up the edges of the paper to give a distressed look.

Although the sheet is really lovely I wanted to change the look of it slightly so I part misted and then also drizzled 2 different colors of Cosmic Shimmer mist , Tarnished Gold and Ancient Copper across and down the page.

From the sheet of Yellow Alpine Poppy I cut a few of the panels out, inked the edges and popped them partly behind the photo ( which I had matted in the same pale green card).

I had some Dusty Attic Wordplay chipboard pieces to work with, so chose a suitable word and inked it up gently and added to the right hand sight of the photo and did the same with a tiny chipboard lock and key.

I also added some pearls, a metal filigree and a faceted flat back crystal from the Prima Say it in Crystals range before finishing the layout with a strip of cotton lace and a title made using some copper chipboard alphabet letters from my stash.

I hope you likes the layout, Stamperia papers are beautiful and come in a range of different patterns and themes, why not pop over to the shop and have a look.

Hope you get some chance to craft today!

Warmest wishes
Anita xx
