My Entry For the Prima March BAP Challenge
How to Create A Stamping & Watercolour Background...

Hi there friends, thanks for stopping by.
Today I have a layout I created for the March BAP challenge
over on the Prima blog & it is based on this months sketch.
I have flipped it & taken some artistic license with it of course,
 like I so often do !!! You have to make it your own, right. :)

I have also made a VIDEO TUTORIAL
on this technique. Stamping & watercolours to create a background.

March Prima BAP Sketch
 Now before I go on I have to say I was firstly inspired by a 
technique I saw Marina Syskova use on her "More Than Words" March entry.
I thought I would like to try it out, although mine is absolutely nothing like hers,
our styles are totally different, but I just had to try this technique out & when I saw
this months BAP challenge on the Prima blog, one of their super talented DT girls has 
also used this technique too, but in wonderful pastels.
So there you go, same technique, three different versions. :)

Scroll down for a full list of all the Prima products used.

Again I have used a pic of my sweet baby grandaughter Mia.
Poor little bubba is very sick at the moment, she has pnermonia !!!

All my chipboard I have used is from 2Crafty chipboard.

I really enjoyed creating this background. Lots & lots & lots of stamping
& then some fun painting with watercolours.

Lots of pretties, flowers, birds, butterflies & a pretty colour scheme. :)

Well thats all from me today..
See you back here soon.
