Favourite Stamp for Stamping Sensations


A couple of weeks ago I won over at Stamping Sensations and was asked if I'd like to be a Guest Designer and as it's one of my favourite challenges,  and with a theme of 'Use Your Favourite Current Stamp', well of course I said YES.

This is another DL card made with the Glorious Bouquet, I did think this stamp would take time to colour, but there's so much detail in the stamp itself, it really is quite simple.  This was coloured with DIs and very little shading was needed.
I made a rough cut mask which I used before stencilling with the Nordic stencil using Frayed Burlap, and then shading with Antique Linen DIs.  The sentiment was stamped and heat embossed with clear EP.

The DT have made some fabulous choices in their favourite stamps, so why not pop over to Stamping Sensations to have a look.

Thanks for calling in and enjoy the rest of your weekend.

This is such a beautiful card Avril and I can just imagine how therapeutic it is to sit and colour all of those wonderful flowers. I loved your card in blue and I love it in full colour too. I also really like your touch of stencilling too. Thank you for being our Guest Designer at Stamping Sensations, you’ve really done us proud. Crafty hugs, Sandra x
