Anything But a Card with Bugaboo Stamps

To demonstrate just how versatile the Bugaboo Stamps are, I made  an invitation envelope featuring one of this month's new images called Floral Doodles 1

I used a black factory made envelope as well as Stickles and gold gems.

BUGABOO STAMPS - A COLOUR CHALLENGE


This week's challenge at Bugaboo Stamps is a colour challenge:

 
I used the stripes of colour as a base for my two super cute boy Bugaboo images (Brat Sitter – Curly Hair Boy and a retired image) to sit on, and merged a digital Happy Birthday bunting.

The images were coloured using alcohol markers:


 The single embellishment is a button, and I also used a blue cs mat.
