ABC Challenge ...F is for .....

It's time for another challenge over on ABC Challenge and we're now on to the letter 'F'. What we would like to see this time is..... 'F' is for flowers. Now we all have some flowers in our stash so this should be a nice easy one for you ! The sponsor for this challenge is Secret Crafter.

I've made this card for my sister to give to her eldest daughter, I'm confident no one will look here before Saturday (famous last words !). I've used a Sketching Stamper image, which I've heat set with a heat gun then used DI to water colour it. I've cut the image out with a Labels 17 Nestabilities and sponged Tea Dye DI around the edge before removing the die. The text is the gorgeous Stampin' Up En Francais stamp which I've stamped with black Stazon and then blended Tea Dye and Vintage Photo DI over it and distressed the edges. The background piece is made with a Crafty Individuals stamp which I've stamped several times and then blended Tea Dye and Vintage Photo DI over it.

The flower is a Stampin' Up punch and I've punched 3 flowers from an old book and then used Vintage Photo DI. The centre flower is also a Stampin' Up punch and I've blended Vintage Photo over some white card and punched the flower from it. The swirls are a Sizzlet die and I've used the same technique again to get the right colour. The sentiment is a Paper Mania stamp.

I hope you get chance to join us this week.

Thanks for looking
