One For The Girls at Stamping Sensations

Hello there my crafty friends,

It's time for a new challenge over at Stamping Sensations and out theme this time is 'One For The Girls.'  I thought long and hard about what stamps I would like to use for this challenge and then I remembered a stamp that I haven't used for quite a while called 'Fashion Girl Vintage Fifties' by Flonzcraft and I think it hits the brief really well.  Here's my card:


I started by stamping the girl and the mirror with Versafine and then I used a clear embossing powder over it.  I masked off my images and then used red Brushos to create the background.  I used a Tim Holtz die cut on the corners and then mounted the card on to a piece of red card to give some contrast.  I added some gold peel offs and a ribbon to the mirror to make it stand out a little more.  The sentiment stamp that I've used is from an old stamp set by Crafter's Companion but I thought that it worked well with my glamour girl.

We are very generously sponsored this month by Gordon and Justin at:
Once Upon a Stamp
 and the lucky winner will receive a £25 gift voucher to spend at their online store

Stamping Sensations is a stamping challenge, so we must see a stamped image, sentiment or quote as the focal element of your artwork, this means: Stamping must be the central point of attention and interest.

All the details of our challenge rules can be found here

Please note:  If we don't comment on your entry it will be because it doesn't follow our theme to qualify under our rules, or because we are asked to sign in or provide additional data to comment on third part hosts such as Instagram, Flickr or Facebook etc.  We really don't want to be rude but we do want to be fair to those who follow the rules.

That's all from me for now, so I'll wish you a happy and peaceful day x

She does indeed fit the brief so well Sandra and your choice of warm reds really compliments her perfectly, some of my favourite dies as well. Great sentiment as well.

Happy Easter.
