Doo Lally Pip Wall Hanging

Whilst on holiday in beautiful, sunny Cornwall this summer, my family and I found a arts and crafts shop.  Amongst all the goodies was some mount board cut offs.  I bought some for £1! What a bargain.  When I got home I wanted to make sure that I used some of them as it so easy to buy things and leave them in your craft stash untouched.  Therefore the idea for a wall hanging popped into my head.

And here is the wall hanging I created using Gwendoline from the Doo Lally Pip stamp collection....

 I started with one dark piece of mount board and one smaller piece of mount board. I sprayed them both with dylusions ink spray (calypso teal and cherry pie)

Finish the mount board with distress ink (peacock feathers and fired brick). On the darker mount board Stamp the corners using flitter glu and gilding flakes.

I then stamped 'Gwendoline' and coloured the image with promarkers.

I then mounted up all my pieces adding some pink ribbon, flowers (die cut and coloured with the distress inks), bird charm, butterfly (previously an old hairclip!) and stamped the word 'DREAM'.

I hole punched the top and tied in some ribbon........FINISHED!

All this is new to me!

Hi, my name is Lisa and I make my own cards and am passionate about papercraft.  I particularly like stamping. It allows you to make you own background paper and main images for your cards and papercraft projects. 

I would like to share some of my efforts on this blog. 

My latest purchase was two sets of Doo Lally Pip stamps which I bought from Ali-Craft (

These stamps are simply gorgeous.
