Baa baa bunting!

Hi everyone,
Thankyou so much if you have just popped over from my main blog post on the Paperartsy blog. Just a quick link post tonight as I'm busy looking after  the  Grandfairies! The project that I have been working on ties in with the current PaperArtsy blog challenge: Banners and Bunting. I was lucky enough to be asked to use 'Elenazinski' stamp sets, both new and old, for my bunting.
By the time this banner was finished it was so long that I could only take photos in the garden! So, here's a closer view of the circles, perfect size for Elena's sheep. Aren't they cute? 
And now the triangles... Here I used some of the background stamps on her very first stamp set she designed for PaperArtsy. Elena is a fantastic artist and sells all sorts of things in her etsy shop! Here. She's also a very talented writer. I want her to write and illustrate a children's book! 

The stamps I used were these:
The sheep are one of her new sets. I love all her designs. They are great fun to stamp out and colour in. All my grandchildren have received birthday and Christmas cards using her stamps. For this bunting, I used Paperartsy Fresco chalk paints for all the background layers and Copic marker pens for colouring the images. This is going to adorn my youngest grandfairy's nursery when her mum moves into her new house! I'm sure she will love it! 
If you are interested in the process steps in creating this bunting, why don't you pop over to the PaperArtsy blog, using the link above. Thankyou so much for popping by! Until next time....


  1. Oh my Chris how the past 18 months have flown by. Your created bunting will look fabulous in her new room brightening any day. Wishing you a super Sunday & Thank you for sharing the process the site of all those stamped images to colour has made my mind up on how to spend my day... The ironing can wait till Monday.

    1. Oh Tracey, you have made my day with your lovely comment. I actually felt this project had 'bombed' on the PA website due to such little response. But, my daughter loves it and that is what matters. A lot of love went into making it for her. Yes, the days, weeks and months are leaping by! Have fun with your crafty Sunday. I'm making stuff just for me today. Yay!
