Thank You at FSC


Hello and welcome to Fashionable Stamping's first challenge of 2016, and it's Esther who chose the theme of  'Thank You'  -   what you create is up to you as long as  there's real stamping which follows the theme.
We have Flonzcraft as our sponsor and they are offering one lucky random winner a $20 spend in their online store.

For me, 'Thank You'  is often said with flowers, so I've used the Tim Holtz Flower Garden stamps. My background was stamped with a crackle stamp, 2nd generation Frayed Burlap and then somewhere in there there's a honeycomb stencil with Wild honey, over which I stamped the Jofy Mesh.  My flowers were stamped with black archival, heat embossed with clear EP and then fussy cut, coloured and edged with frayed burlap, before assembling my 'bouquet'.   I added a piece of honeycomb mixed media diecut.
The rest of the DT have some fabulous inspiration, so please pop over to the main blog, and you'll also find all the details.
I am entering this at:
  Crafty Catz - Flowers
  Allsorts - Ribbon and Lace
 
Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
