Sunday Stampers - Believing/Journey

If you'd like to join in the Sunday Stampers challenge and why wouldn't you ;-) pop over to La Casa de Hels.  For the challenges you can make anything you like so long as it includes the theme and at least some stamping, simples!  We have a choice this week, either 'Believing', 'Journey' or both.  I cut the end off a piece of chipboard using one of Tim's 'On The Edge' dies -  well it's not Tims' it's mine but YKWIM ;-)  I used DIs on the background, stamped Tim's butterfly and my dotty stamp from The Artistic Stamper.  I coloured some Golden gel medium with pigment powder and used it to stencil the flowers; been doing a lot of that lately, I love it and it adds dimension.  Can you guess what I made the flower from? No?  Well I'll tell you then - a Primula cheese spread tube :-0  I think Elizabeth; 'The Queen of Recycling' will be proud of me LOL  The little round frame is really plastic that looks like metal on one side (got them yonks ago from QVC), coloured with alcohol inks.  The sentiment is my own printed off the PC - however if I have half-remembered some famous quote I apologise!

Ooh lovely Ane, great colours. Am always a bit staggered by the amount of work you put into your pieces (colouring some gel with the piggy powders, for eg). As for the cheese tube thing - I knew immediately. Of course. Elizabeth will be so happy!
