It's a new year and time for a new challenge at 'Fashionable Stamping Challenge' and I really hope that you can join us. The theme this month is 'Thank You,' and has been chosen by Esther. My teamies have created some wonderful, inspirational pieces, so why not pop over the their blogs and have a closer look. As always, we are sponsored by Leo over at Flonzcrafts and one lucky winner; chosen at random will have the chance to win a $20 voucher to spend online, so get your stamps and inks out and let's see your wonderful creations.
Here's the card that I've made:
As it's a new year, I knew that I wanted my card to have a clean, fresh look and so I used an Archival Brilliance (Peacock) ink pad which hasn't seen the light of day for years but it's just as juicy as it was four or five years ago, I was really impressed.
I started by using a small Allium stamp by Inkylicious and completely covered a piece of white card to create my background. I still wasn't sure where I was going with my card at this point and so I mounted the background onto an 8 x 8 card and created a border with the larger Allium stamp. I was really pleased to find some plain card in my stash that matched the colour of the ink perfectly and I've used this for my matts and die cuts. The main focal image is a Sarah Kay stamp which I've coloured using Spectum Noir pens and mounted using several different Spellbinder dies.
The card was completed by adding a 'Thank You' sentiment which is also by Inkylicious. I've stamped around the edge with the small Allium stamp to co-ordinate with the rest of the card. I'm happy with the end product and hope you like it too.
Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog and I wish you a wonderful day x
