Stamping Play

A couple more layouts with a similar background. I love this effect.
What I did was spread out a whole lot of orange paint on my craft mat,
pressed a plastic mango tray liner into it, then placed that on top of my white cardstock and stood on it to get a good stamp. Three times :-)

And because it's school holidays, the weather has been stinking hot
and the kids are all tired, not much time has been managed in my art room
so these pages are quick and simple.

Ed bought this with pocket money and it's now his absolute favourite T.
(The narwhals have lightsaber horns).

And this one is for White With 1 - Tangerine,
using some fabulous Scrapmatts (cogs & word).

I have kept the plastic mango tray for more future play :-)
Thanks heaps for coming by
