Messy Play!





After doing my card for Less is More I wanted to enter The Stamp Man Challenge which is 'Resist'. I haven't done this technique for ages and I needed to play with my new stamps and ones I bought at Harrogate that hadn't been inked up!
When I 'play' I usually do a few extra pieces which I will use up in a couple of weeks, but this is the only one I finished today so that I can enter the challenge - just!
I have used Hobby Art stamps and embossed in white, then 'shadow' stamped the image again with DI Dusty Concord, which I then used on the white card. The sentiment is computer generated and again I distressed with the Dusty Concord. The background was mauve card stock which I stamped  with a smaller flower using the same ink. I added Glamour Dust and some vellum butterflies after colouring the vellum with the ink, these are also glittered.
I am also entering this card in the Lets Ink It Up challenge - Embellish it - No Digis
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes
By the Cute & Girly Monthly challenge - Anything Goes

That's it for now - a glass of wine awaits!
Will do some catching up with you lovely bloggers tomorrow.
