March Jems Blog Hop

Morning all, and welcome to the Jems Blog Hop, hope you've enjoyed the projects so far !

This month the theme is a Colour Challenge - Sweet Sugarplum, Bermuda Bay and Mint Macaron. - the colours of the stunning new glimmer paper , available as a Sale-a-bration freebie until the end of the month.
Regular readers will have seen my earlier post using Lovely as a Tree and simple sponging that I CASED from the very talented Michelle Last.
I really enjoyed making those and knew I wanted to try other colour combinations , so this seemed a perfect opportunity to try it.....


And then I got thinking about which other stamps I'd got that would work with the same technique , so I made a Build a Birdcage version....


And a Seaside Shore version....


And a butterfly one....


I really enjoy sponging but normally its around the edges of my project but I just love how these little scenes emerge from the white space- thank you again Michelle for the original idea !

Hope you like my little makes - why not give it a try, it's very addictive !


Enjoy the rest of the Hop and we really appreciate the comments that are left
