Use Those Inks Anyway you want



It's time for a new challenge at Fashionable Stamping and this month it's 'Use your Inks Anyway you Want', but don't forget, we are a stamping challenge and there must be stamping as your focal point.

I've used part of the Glorious Bouquet stamp from Tim Holtz and used Distress Inks to colour.  The background is a very watery Oxide ink mix and the sentiments were stamped and heat set using clear EP.

We have Ink Art Designs as our sponsor and the prize is a stamp from the online shop.

The rest of the DT have some great inspirations for you, so please pop over to the main blog here where you will find all  the details.

I am entering this at -
   Stamping Sensations - In My Garden
  That's Crafty - Close to Nature
  Allsorts - In My Garden
  Country View Crafts - In the Summer Garden

Thanks for calling in, have a great day.

I have to say that I'm loving your floral stamping lately Avril and this is no exception. Your colouring is superb this one has a real photographic quality to it. I also really like your subtle background which allows the flowers to be the star of the show. Thank you for sharing this with us at Stamping Sensations and good luck. Sandra x

Brilliant design! The beautiful Tim Holtz stamp helps, but it is well coloured and the soft sky-like background is perfect for it. Thanks for sharing with us at Country View Challenges this month!
