Raspberry House Wall Hanging

Good morning to all my special friends and followers you guessed its that Wednesday again and  another challenge over at Crafting by Designs and our theme for this week is It's Almost Spring quite apt for this week in the UK when we have had some warmer Spring weather. However I feel its a bit premature to pack away the winter woollies and boots just yet looking at the forecast for the next few days.
We have a great sponsor this week

Prize - choice of 1 set

This is a great Australian company with some beautiful stamps and they also have a great selection of freebies as well on the Beccy's Place Blog so generous.

For my Design Team project I decided on a stamp from the Raspberry House Set. I  resized it and made it into a wall hanging. Its a bit different so hope you like it.

Wall Hanging Recipe

Stamp is Raspberry House Digi set from Beccy's Place backed onto 300gsm card and then fussy cut. .I then painted it with Derwent Inktense Pencils it did take quite a while to do.
The flowers are Wild Orchid Crafts cream Cherry Blossoms painted with Inktense pencils and Copic pens to match the flowers I painted on the stamp
Butterfly punch is Martha Stewart 
Papers for butterflies are Craftwork Cards
Bird brad was from a pack from Jelly Bean Crafts at Ross Papercraft Show
Home Sweet Home letters are Tim Holtz
Ribbon Hanger is Martha Stewart ribbon from Michael's in Florida
 Green pearl string my stash
