Would You Like To Swing On A Star?

Swinging on a star today and this star is one of the new QKR Stampede stamps that Emily has over at Make The Day Special.

I love these stamps they have a lovely cloth doll look I think and that is what lead me to use this wonderful gingham and dotty paper from October Afternoon.

I’ve paper pieced the girl’s dress and used my Prismacolor pencils to colour the rest of her.

The paper ruffle at the bottom is made from raffia that I unfolded then stuck down to a strip of double-sided tape.

Have you seen the new Make The Day Special Blog yet?

Have a star swinging Friday
