Floral at FSC

This month we have a beautiful floral theme for you!
You can show us either a single flower or a bouquet. The choice is up to you.
I hope you find time to join in the challenge.

For my inspiration I’ve made an Art Journal page.
My house is on the market at the moment so the words on this page are about practicing patience!

The stamps used are Entomology and Flower Garden from Stampers Anonymous.
The stencils, mini cell theory and harlequin, are from TWC and the paints are Dina Wakley.

The technique is one that I’ve developed by bouncing off another technique.  It is super fun and easy to do!
How is that for a teaser lol.
There will be more about it in future posts. I’m a little bit addicted to it at the moment so I’m sure you will see me use it a few times.

The girls at FSC have come up with some inspiring and very different takes on this theme. Please pop on over and check out their awesome creativity, be inspired and maybe join in the fun.

Ink Art Designs is our sponsor this month (that’s my Etsy shop) and has a gorgeous stamp set to give away to one lucky winner chosen by random org.

We also have a top 3 chosen by the design team and Saturday Spotlights where we showcase inspirational makes. And the icing on the cake is that each month we will be having a guest designer chosen from the entries.

Thank you for looking,
Happy Stamping!

One For The Girls at FSC

It’s time for a new challenge at Fashionable Stamping Challenges

and this is ‘One For The Girls’.

That’s right, this month we are asking you to enter your makes with girls on them into our challenge.
We had an amazing start to the year with the number of entries in the challenge, good luck to everyone who entered.

I hope that you are tempted to join in again this month.

This was made last year as a tutorial for Mixed Up Magazine and I’ve never blogged it.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here are some pics showing how the background was gradually built up.  For me this is the fun part!  It’s were I just get to play with inks.

For the different elements that I was putting onto the background I’ve used stamps from a variety of stamp companies, Rubber Dance, IndigoBlu, Finnibair and Lost Coast Designs.

I’ve used this gorgeous lady stamp from Lost Coast Designs before which you will find here.

Teamie Avril put me onto this stamp years ago and is still a favourite of mine.

Just Playing!

Just Playing!
There is nothing quite like a cold and wet day to get you crafting!
This stamp is one from Trish Latimer’s new range…and I am having heaps of fun just playing around with it.
The background uses pink and orange Distress Paint on a craft sheet.
A little tone-on-tone stenciling and stamping brings the background to life.
The words are from Finnabair’s Don’t Forget To Fly stamp set.
The main image is coloured with copic markers…I’m not crash hot with copic’s, but I wanted to give her a solid colour. I was happy with the final look after adding a little water colour pencil to her hair and edging with distress ink. 
I would love to enter this in the following challenges ~
