Stampin'B's-collage- Hope you like Nursery Rhymes


This may not be what Vicky Gould of the Stampin' B's Design Team had in mind when she asked us to do a collage card this week, but my collage took on the nursery rhyme theme. I have five Stampabilites nursery rhyme theme stamps and had used only one, so here was my chance. Humpty Dumpty is maybe my favorite because of a childhood memory. My brother had a humpty dumpty and when you turned the handle,  it said the rhyme...Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall.......I loved it!

I am hoping one of my little grandchildren will be fascinated with this. I may have to make a couple more.
Oh, it's not Toy Story or Cars, etc. so they may have never heard of these nursery rhymes. LOL

Hope you'll join us this week or the 'collage' theme. Just use the inlinkz tool to link on our blog above.

Challenges I'm entering:
Paper Sundaes #70-Pop it Up! I popped up several of my images.

Tip Top Tuesday #35- Use 2 or more stamps on your creation Tip: Never leave your embossing tool plugged in after using. Mine was in a chair turned off, fell to the floor and hit on the 'turn-on- button and came on. If papers had been close by and I had not been in the room, they would have possibly caught on fire.

This is just the CUTEST, Benzi! What a super idea for a collage card. This card is by far my favorite for this week's challenge. You really did a great job putting it together (looks like lots of masking) and the colors are great. AWESOME work!

Oooh what a fab kids card, I love how you used the different inks and layered them up. And thanks for your top tip ... though there's no danger of that happening to mine which seems to have been banished to the back of the cupboard, I couldn't tell you the last time I actually used it, yet I used to use it on almost every card I made!
