Sharing the Love at Fashionable Samping


Hi Folks,

Its time for another challenge over at Fashionable Stamping and this time, we would love you to 'Share Some Love'.
For my piece, my new 'love' of tags  was the choice, and as I love stamping and inking, well, that had to be the starting point. I used the new IndigoBlu 'Vintage Flourish' stamped in Versamark and heat embossed with Clear EP on a white tag, then my new favourite Distress Inks - Iced Spruce and Seedless Preserve with a bit of Bundles Sage thrown in for good measure. Second generation background stamping in Frayed Burlap, and then polished up to reveal the lovely white flourish.
 My image 'Woman in Repose' by Rubber Stampeed, was stamped onto white card in Iced Spruce, softly distressed with Spun Sugar to soften the white, and her lips were painted with Spun Sugar. This was matted onto cardstock which had been randomly distressed with the same inks, which were also used  to die the seam binding. The letters, TH Vintage Market die, were also distressed  and coated with Glossy Accents.
My DT Sisters have as usual created some wonderful pieces for your inspiration, and this week for added inspiration, we have Chris  of   http://imaginationandinspirationwithchris.blogspot.co.uk/  as a Guest Designer  so please pop over here to take a look.  As ever we are sponsored by Cottage Crafts to the value of €7, so why don't you join us and 'Share some Love'.

I am entering this at:
  Fat Pages with Attitude - Love
  Gingerloft - Love is in the Air
  C.R.A.F.T. - Valentines/Love
  Aud Sentiments - Bingo (Die cut/Embossing/LOVE)
  Artistic Stampers - Favourite Stamp (Love this image)
  In the Pink - Distressing

That's it from me for now,  enjoy the rest of the weekend.
