Paperbabe Stamps Challenge ~ #149 Anything Goes

 Hello Creative Friends, 

with a Paperbabe Prize up for grabs for one randomly 
chosen participant, so please pop on over and share 
your crafty makes in our *Anything Goes Challenge #149*

For today's DT Project I share two collage postcards


created layering torn strips of coffee stained stenciled paper 
and hand designed washi using a selection of Paperbabe Stamps
Machine stitched edges, embellished with lace and sentiments
each postcard displays a Peony or Butterfly stamped focal... 


Postcard size has always been my favourite size to work on 
and I just love collaging these creative stories together. 

This bundle await sentiments, focal images or an embellishment or two.. 
I've built up quite a collection.. I look forward to sharing more soon..

Wishing you all well 
I'll catch up with you all later..

Stay safe & creative 

Hugs Tracey xx

Sharing todays creativity with:

strange! In your first postcard my eyes wants to see a lion head. Yet I see it is not a lion. I still want to see that lion. :) :)

You are so creative! i am sure you could walk out into the street, pick up the first piece of paper on the sidewalk, and create something appealing from it. Bravo!
