The Stamp Man Challenge

I love Autumn and so for my DT project for The Stamp Man I decided to indulge myself and use all of those lovely colours ! The challenge, before I forget to tell you, is circles ! The prize is a £10 voucher to spend at The Stamp Man.

I started with the background and stamped it using a Stamp Man skeleton leaf and the butterflies from the Tim Holtz Papillon set. The embossed panel is made using a Quickutz EF then I've rubbed lots of different coloured DI over the top. The stitching is faux, as I decided to add it after I'd stuck everything else down ! The main stamp is a Scalloped Butterfly stamp from The Stamp Man that fits perfectly with the scalloped Nestabilities. The butterfly is a Tim Holtz die and it's been cut from card that I stuck some old book pages on to. I used a Viva Paper Pen for the centre dots.

For the leaves I used a freebie stamp from the Craft Stamper magazine and stamped it onto Grunge Paper that I'd blended DI over. The letters are made using one of those cubes of little letter stamps.

I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:

I hope you get chance to join us for this challenge.
