Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge - Nov 17 -30

Hi Again! I am having a lovely day playing around in my craft room:) When I saw the challenge photo at paper smooches I knew that I wanted to use stamps and make some background papers to play along - I love playing with inks! These are not colours that I would ever have put together, but I quite like the result. Thanks for looking x x
