Saturday Stampers - Collage

Collage, one of my fav things these days. I couldn't get it right so shied away but somewhere along the line I grasped the concept & now it features heavily on my creations.
This is the theme for this week's Saturday Stampers.
The top half of this square white card was stamped with script. I then overstamped it with butterflies, leaves, clocks & the words Thinking of You. (these stamps are a mix from Lakeland Ltd, & Clocks, Artistic Stamper) Next, I sponged inks over it to match the patterned paper I planned to use along te bottom half of the card. This particular paper had the girls faces on & I just stamped some clocks in blue to blend it into my piece. I tore a piece of the paper to put the two stamped girls onto. Added the gorgeous floral ribbon, ric rak & made the frame from watercolour paper. Flowers from just flowers & pinned on the two tags to match the time saying below.
Other stamps are Crafty Individuals. Clicking on the words will take you directly to the stamps on the relevant website where possible.
Now as I am supposed to be resting today, I plan an afternoon full of TV & craft magazines.
