Book pages


The new challenge at Fashionable Stamping is to use book pages, these can be stamped or real.

I've stamped this neglected Here Arts Poppy onto tissue paper that had been stamped with the Tim Holtz Papillion background stamp and then stamped again onto book pages with black Archival and embossed with Clear EP.  After colouring with Distress inks I fussy cut the heads and attached onto the Tissue.  The base layer is a piece of DP stamped with a script and ledger stamp.

The Design Team have some great inspiration for you, so please pop over to the main blog where you will find all the challenge details, along with details of our sponsor Ink Art Designs, who are offering a lucky random winner a stamp from their online store.  Don't forget, we are a stamping challenge so we must see real stamping that follows the theme.

Thanks for calling in, have a great day.

Still Glorious


Hello, and thanks for calling in, and I've another card made with the Glorious Bouquet.  I love this stamp, and although I'm not one for colouring images, there's no need to worry about shading as it's such a detailed stamp.  I've used autumn shades of Distress inks to colour and used two of the stamps from the Ornate Trims, and second generation stamping with Antique Linen Oxide to create a worn wallpaper looking background.

I thought I'd share a couple of pictures, I've been feeding a hedgehog every night since August, when I first saw him he was eating the suet and insect pellets I feed the birds with, so it was a trip to the supermarket for dog food the next day.
It must be good, because he has now brought a 'friend',  but now as he/she's coming earlier (7 - 7.15  every night) I find I'm watching anxiously for him/them, hoping he hasn't been knocked down by a car on his way!

Well, that's it for now, have a great weekend,

Black & White + 1 Colour


Black and White plus ONE Colour is the new challenge at Try it on Tuesday this fortnight.

I've picked 'Picked Raspberry' as my colour on both of these cards.  For my first, I've used the Picked Raspberry Distress Ink through an IndigoBlu stencil on  white card.  The image, one of the ladies from Dylusions Couture set was stamped on the card with black and heat set the legs with clear EP, stamped again onto black card with Versamark and heat set using White EP, then fussy cut.  I stamped the bow on white and coloured with Picked Raspberry.


My second card used the same stencil and this time I used Picked Raspberry Oxide ink on black, using Oxide inks on black does slightly change the colour.  The lady was stamped with Versamark and I heat set the legs with White EP, stamped again with black ink onto white card and heat embossed with clear EP and fussy cut.  I used Picked Raspberry Distress Ink to colour, adding a little glitter to sparkle.  The sentiment was stamped with the P.Rasp Oxide ink and embossed with Clear.
The rest of the team have some great examples of using just one colour, so pop over to the main blog and you will find all the challenge details.

I am entering this at Penny Black and More - Make it Feminine

Thanks for calling in, have a great day,
