It's time for the next challenge over at The Fashionable Stamping Challenge and for the next 2 weeks the lovely Dot has chosen a really simple theme of make a card ! Remember we are a stamping challenge so you must include some on your work.
I've mentioned before that I don't make many cards these days so it's quite nice to do one from time to time. It's also quite handy when there are a few family birthdays coming up!
I started with the background and stencilled using Distress Inks and stamped some script using a stamp from the Artistic Outpost French Flight set. I then stamped some masking tape using an Artistic Stamper numbers stamp using Potting Soil Archival ink and stuck it to the card. The main image is also an Artistic Outpost stamp and is from the Think and Wonder set.
The leaves are a Memory Box die that I've rubbed Distress Ink over and the flowers are cut using the Tattered Florals strip die which again I've rubbed Distress Ink over. I dyed a piece of seam binding and added a buckle. A few pearls and buttons and that was it !
I hope you get chance to join us for this challenge and do make sure you hop over to the main blog and check out the rest of the DT's fabulous work !
I'm also entering this card into the Artistic Outpost referral programme.
