Hello ! I'm just back from a week's holiday and catching up and the first order of the day is to welcome my new followers, it's lovely to see you here ! The next order of the day is to share my project for The Fashionable Stamping challenge that starts today. The lovely Fliss has chosen 'Can you resist' for the next 2 weeks.
I took the opportunity to make another card for my other half's birthday which was last week. I started with the background and used Darkroom Door stamps and Snowflake Fresco Finish paint. When it was dry I then used a baby wipe and Fresco Finish paints and wiped it over the stamped images. As the Fresco Finish resists the layers of paint you can still see the stamped images. I've used a page from an old book as the next layer and blended Vintage Photo and Walnut Stain Distress Inks over it. I die cut a Picture Wheel and blended the same Distress Inks over it.
The little birds are a Tim Holtz stamp which I received at the fabulous workshop I attended before I went on holiday. I've stamped them onto the photo negative stamp which is by Darkroom Door. The main sentiment is also from the same Darkroom Door set. I kept the little pieces of card from the picture wheel and stamped the little images using the same set of stamps from the Tim Holtz workshop and stuck them to a strip of card. I love how it gave a tiled look to the stamps. I added some Idea-ology to finish and a little Chit Chat sticker.
I hope you get chance to join us for this challenge and do make sure you check out the rest of the DT's fabulous projects on the main blog.
