Cheerful cup

I hope this picture cheers all those of you stuck in the middle of winter!  This one's for you!

We don't need it, we are basking in 30deg C temperatures trying to keep cool, and I bet you wish you were here.  ;-D

I coloured the image, then took a tiny flower stamp and stamped all over the clothes, masking as I went. I raided the stash for coordinating scraps of papers and cut them different widths, then bannered the end; they are stapled on higgledy-piggledy with my cute pink staples.

I love the colours and mix of papers used :)
At first, I thought you'd paper pieced the clothes, i'm impressed with your stamping, looks great!

This is super! :) I love a bit of unexpected christmas cheer! like this layout very much and the staples work brilliantly. Small stamps providing extra pattern is a great idea, and so nicely done.
