Flying Hoopla

The magpie part of me just LOVES anything shiny and pretty and I've recently discovered bullion, a crinkly wire that catches the light beautifully as it moves.
So for this postcard for the new challenge at Stampotique hosted by the uber talented Corrie I made some bullion hoops for Agatha to fly through. The challenge is to paint your background, which I did, you can see the brush marks! Then using some white embossing powder and the wonderful text stamp completed the background. Then it was simply a case of stitching the top and bottom and giving Agatha her stars and fixing everything in place.
The stamps I used are: Agatha Heart  Agatha Star  and Journey Collage
I do hope you like my postcard, and just to let you know my last post did indeed jinx the weather, myself and Poppy got absolutely soaked this morning in a downpour of Biblical proportions!!
Wishing you a lovely dry day, Sam xxx

    I can beat your downpour, in Cambridge we had a very short but intense ice storm. Definitely more than hail. Left white slush everywhere. Eeek!
