Ready Steady Stamp
This is my first entry in the RSS challenge. This challenge is one of the reasons I wanted to start a blog as it bans 'cute', and I don't often do cute.
All the cardstock came from my stash and the swirly stamp is the same as the one used in my previous post. (Can you tell it's my current fave?) I daubed some white acrylic paint on the 'b' and the brackets and inked round the edges with pink ink. The flower comes from Prima and this I painted with Cosmic Shimmers to get a matching shade of pink. I thought the corrugated card looked a bit boring plain so I tarted it up by applying silver pigment ink directly to it and then embossed with silver E.P. and a very light touch of Stardust Stickles. The Eiffel Tower was stamped onto a sponged background which had been masked, the stamp came from a Clear Choice stamp set that is ancient-one of the first I ever bought. Not sure if I like this card as it is a bit busier than my usual stuff but this challenge has taken me outside my comfort zone. TFL. Fiona
P.S. I am having trouble with the layout of my blog. I would like to add photo's underneath the text or in the middle but it doesn't want to seem to do this. If anyone has any advice I'd be very grateful.
