Collage at The Stamp Man

Hi there everyone
It's a new challenge over at The Stamp Man where the theme is collage; Angela has a great explanation on the blog to get you going and as always, there is loads of inspiration from the team as well as a £10.00 voucher for one lucky person so do pop on over to see and join in.
I've done a page in my journal for this challenge; using Butterfly Garden stamps and layering up with tissue paper to add a subtle depth without being too bulky in the journal.

Here's the full spread. The background was created with acrylic paint and I stamped over with background stamps (Shipped Script and a mesh) in distress inks. I stamped one of the images onto the paper in coffee archival and the butterflies onto tissue in coffee and olive archival and glued to the page with Studio matte multi medium. The sentiment was stamped onto card and inked and then added to the page before adding the journalling.

Hope you all have a fab weekend ahead; I'll be at The Craft Barn tomorrow so if you are in the area do come along and say Hi!
Bless you

Love the journal spread. Great colours and clever how you used the 'netting' background stamp... it feels a bit like underwater in the sky :)
