Numbers Time at Fashionable Stamping Challenges


 Hello and thanks for visiting today - it's time to tell you about the new challenge at Fashionable Stamping, which for this fortnight is 'Numbers' and all the details can be found on the main blog, along with some fabulous inspiration from the rest of the DT.
I need a card for some one who is celebrating a 'big' number, so decided this was a good opportunity to be organised.
My main image and the 'number' are from the Artistic Outpost 'Diesel punk' set.  My background was clear embossed using the TH 'Gothic' stencil and coloured with Antique Linen,Vintage Photo and Tarnished Brass sprays, it has a gorgeous sheen, which is difficult to see in the photo.
My rose......
 was made from script paper, and dipped in UTEE in the Melt Pot on one of my first play sessions, I decided to see if this would now take a colour, so, sprayed with the Tarnished Brass, voila! On a recent tidy
up, I discovered a huge bag of skeleton leaves ( you've probably got a bag full too)  think I need to use these more often.
It would be great if you could join us for this challenge, but don't forget, we are a stamping challenge and must see 'real' stamping on your project and this must follow the theme.  We also have Flonzcraft as our Sponsor and they are offering one lucky random winner a $20 spend in their online store.

I am entering this at:
  Artistic Outpost - Show us your Art
  Crafts for Eternity - Numbers
  Stamping Sensations - Dies & Punches (Die cut leaves and swirl Retro punch for rose)

Enjoy the rest of you weekend,
Avril xx

Hi Avril...what a great discovery with the spray on the dipped rose! It looks incredible. As I get older I think it is a great thing to reach the big numbers - so many don't...and well worth celebrating. I love your card to celebrate a great milestone.
