Latest News !!!

Well girls, I can now tell you my latest news! I am absolutely thrilled to have been invited to join the fabulous Design Team at Fashionable Stamping Challenges and become a 'Fashionette' !!!  This is  an extremely talented team, so please pop over to the challenge blog and see their amazing creations.           

For my first outing on the catwalk I created this little blue number ........

For my card I used K&Co papers, the image is a Crafty Individuals, that I have had for a couple of weeks and this is the first 'inking'.  I stamped the bill head on a cream tag, masked and then overstamped  Hero Arts Old French Writing, I stamped the heading again and on cream card and cut out with a nestie label.  I used Walnut Stain DI for the stamping and distressed with a combination of Vintage Photo and Tattered Rose. I paper pieced the corset bodices and parasol from scraps in the same pad. The  lace flowers were cut from an old lace collar and inked with Adirondack Denim ink.  I haven't added a sentiment, because I didn't want to cover all the swirls on the paper!
Well , I hope you like my first 'exhibit' on the catwalk of stamping and that I have encouraged you to pop over to see the fabulous show of inspiration from the rest of the Team.

I am also going to enter this card in the following challenges:
  Just Add Ink - Something from stash - Old lace collar
  Some Odd Girl - Paper piece
  Craft Us Crazy  - Anything Goes
  Phindy's Place - Mak your own embellishments
  Papercrafting Journey - Anything Goes
  Fab & Funky - Mono Madness
  Crafts & Me - Lace

Well that's it for now - have a great week -end and I hope the sun shines for you.

Avril xx
