Can-U-Resist FSC

Hi - its time for a new challenge at Fashionable Stamping and this fortnight we would love to see if you can RESIST joining in.  Our fabulous sponsor for this challenge is again Flonzcraft, who are offering one lucky random winner a $20 spend in their online store.

For my piece I decided on a tag and stamped the Stampendous Agapanthus Cluster with Versamark and heat embossed with White EP, the Tim Holtz sentiment also got the same treatment.  I then did some whitewash stamping using Picket Fence Distress Stain, for this I used a TH Floral Swirl stamp.  Distress inks Chipped sapphire, Wild honey, Forest Moss and Seedless Preserve were blended over ( I know it looks a bit brown in the photo, but there was no brown used)  I then  spritzed with water and wiped over the whole tag with a damp tissue to remove the ink from the white stain and embossing.  I made a background using just the whitewash stamping method with the same inks.  My ribbons were randomly inked with the inks, and spritzed to soften the colours.
My very talented teamies have some wonderful techniques to tempt you into joining us and I'm sure you won't be able to RESIST (pun intended) to please pop over here, you won't be disappointed.

I am entering this at:
  Crafty Ribbons - Anything Goes with Ribbon
  Aud Sentiments - Use a Sentiment
  Happy Campers - Use a Stamp
  Vintage Stamping - Anything from the Garden

Hope you enjoy the rest of your Sunday

This tag is definitely an Avril one. Gorgeous colours, soft and sweet images, floaty swirls and very very pleasing to the eye.

What a feast for my eyes first thing Monday morning Avril, Agapanthus P107, my all time favourite stamp (ask the poor girls who see it time and again in class).

Lovely resist inking and colour blending.
