Hi everyone, I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and are all ready for whatever 2018 brings.

To kick the year off, Fashionable Stamping Challenges first challenge is an Anything Goes theme.

My first make is an Art Journal page. This journal is an 8″ x 8″ Dylusions journal which is challenging for me.

The texture was built up with torn papers and then acrylic paints were layered up over this base.

The paint catches on the torn edges which I really enjoyed seeing.

One of the other fun parts was ‘blistering’ the paint with the heat tool to add just a little bit more texture in parts.  The stamps used are all from Rubber Dance. I’ve used the Crazy Flowers #2 and #1, Something Wonderful and the bird is from Whimsical Summer.

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 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,
