Hello, it's time for our new challenge at Fashionable Stamping and this month it was my turn to choose the challenge.... and as I like making my own backgrounds and background papers, I thought that was a good place to start. Flonzcraft are again our sponsor and are offering one lucky random winner a $20 spend in their online store.
My card base was inked with Tumbled Glass, Peacock Feathers and Blueprint Sketch, before stamping elements from the Tim Holtz Correspondence Set along with some script, in Potting Soil Archival. I also splattered on some Tarnished Brass stain, but you will have to look very hard to see that! the light when I took the photo this week has been so poor. My Butterfly was stamped and heat embossed with Gold EP, fussy cut and then coloured with Blueprint Sketch, Peacock Feathers and Abandoned Coral DIs, this was added with some foam pads to help give the wings some definition. The gold die cut was dulled down with the Tarnished Brass and Vintage Photo stains.
It would be lovely if you could join us for this challenge, which is really an anything goes - as long as we see you have made your own background and have used real stamping for the main focal image. The rest of the DT have some wonderful inspiration for you so please pop over to the main blog for all the details.
I am entering this at:

We've had our first covering of snow here in the N.E, although I missed the actual 'snowing' as I spent the day in heavy rain in York, Christmas shopping with DD. Whatever you're doing this weekend, hope its a good one.
Thanks for your visit,
