Favourites at Fashionable Stamping

Hi, time to tell you about that latest challenge at Fashionable Stamping and for this time we would love you to use your favourite 'Go To' stamp, you can make whatever you want as long as the stamping is the focal point. We have Flonzcraft as our sponsor who are offering one lucky random winner a $20 spend in their online store
For me it had to be 'EllaBella' from IndigoBlu,  she can look soft and feminine, bright and vibrant, vintage or modern, and when I'm lacking inspiration - she doesn't need much to make her look good - wish I could say that!
Stamped and heat embossed with Black EP and then out came the Brushos.  My first few plays with these hadn't been very successful, too much water and too heavy handed with the 'sprinkles' equals 'mud' and so the Brushos were put in a drawer awaiting the' play day'. After a lovely messy and productive day last week, I'm quite pleased with the results.  On this card I used Sea Green, love the blue and yellow shades.
Of course, I didn't stop at one


This time I used Violet and Purple and softened the edges with Dusty Concord DI.  Simple cards, but perfect for posting!
I hope you will join us for this challenge and don't forget to pop over to the main blog for all the details and to see what my fellow teamies favourites are.

Happy Crafting,
Avril xx

It's amazing what a change of color can do the look of a card. These cards have the same image, layout and techniques used, but they look so different...

Scrumptious work with the Brushos - both colourways are great, but it won't be a surprise that the first one is my favourite!
